Protect Desktops from Cyberthreats with Secure Peripheral Control between Multiple Computers and Devices

Connecting computer peripherals such as keyboard & mouse to a PC introduces potential data leakage and hacking risks. Black Box Secure KVM Switch line provides port isolation between networks ensuring no data is leaked between secure ports and the outside world. Built with true data path isolation between systems and networks, these switches help prevent hardware tampering.

Black Box offers a wide range of NIAP PSD V3.0 certified Secure KVM devices and PSD V.4.0 compliant models. Learn more about the NIAP Protection Profile and when you should shift to PP V4.0.

Prevent Data Leakage - Breaches

Prevent Data Leakage / Breaches

Block peripheral exploits, data breaches, eavesdropping, and computer malware.

Prevent Hardware- Firmware Tampering

Prevent Hardware/ Firmware Tampering

Protect from hardware and firmware tampering by enforcing multilayered security mechanisms.

Prevent Cyber Intrusion

Prevent Cyber Intrusion

Computers can be catalysts for malicious attack or intellectual property theft. Protect desktop access since your computer or device is a potential point of entry into your network.

Secure KVM Switches Benefits and Features

NIAP Certified Security

Secure KVM Switches comply with NIAP PP V.3.0 security certification, equipping them with the high security features that still meet many of today’s Information Assurance safe control standards. We are proud to announce that NIAP has certified our new range of Secure KVM Switches under the latest NIAP PSD V.4.0 protection profile. These new Secure KVM Switches were among the first that became available with the NIAP PSD V.4.0 certification, meeting the latest cybersecurity requirements from Government.

NIAP_certified

Improved Operator Situational Awareness with Secure Air-Gap Network Isolation

Control multiple computers through a single keyboard, mouse, and up to four video displays while air-gap maintains absolute isolation between all connected systems.

Largest Secure KVM Switch Portfolio

Black Box offers a wide range of NIAP 3.0 certified Secure KVM Switches suitable for any type of application. Choose from KVM switch models with up to 16-ports, analog or digital video, single, dual or quad monitors.

Multiple Switching Signals – DVI-I/DisplayPort/HDMI

Monitor systems with the highest analog or digital resolutions of up to 4K Ultra-HD 3840×2160 @ 30Hz.

Secure Data Transfer without Computer Tampering

Securely transfer files between computers and safeguard your network from accidental transfer, unauthorized access, or compromise of critical data.

True Data Path Isolation

Benefit from hardware-based peripheral isolation with no dependency on firmware, keyboard buffering, or memory.

Secure EDID Learn and Video Emulation

Prevent unwanted and unsecure data to be transmitted through the DDC lines by means of secure EDID learning and emulation. The Secure KVM Switches are designed to learn the connected monitor’s EDID upon power up, allowing trouble-free connection to most monitors.

Common Access Card (CAC) reader support

A fully advanced and configurable CAC port supports smart cards or biometric readers. Furthermore, authenticated admins can register and assign specific peripheral devices to the CAC port, allowing users to switch this device along with the KVM switching of the connected computers.

Prevent Cyberthreats

Threat:Solution:
Microprocessor malfunction or unanticipated software bugs causing data to flow between ports.Unidirectional data flow is enforced by hardware "data diodes" so data isolation doesn't rely on software integrity.
Malicious modification of microprocessor software causing data to leak between ports.Microprocessors are one-time programmable and soldered on the board. Data isolation does not rely on software; it is ensured by hardware.
Detection of signals on one computer by monitoring for crosstalk (leakage) signals on another computer.No connections to sensitive inputs such as computer microphone ports. Minimum crosstalk separation provided between signals from one computer and input or I/O signals to another.
Timing analysis attacks (looking at what happens on one port to determine data flow patterns on another).Only one computer is connected at a time to any shared circuitry. Links are unidirectional, preventing timing analysis.

Standard KVM Switching between unclassified computers

Standard KVM Switching between unclassified computers

NIAP 3.0 certified Secure KVM Switches enable users to switch between unclassified networks as needed from a single keyboard and mouse, while isolating classified networks. Standard switching allows users access to public networks as required, protecting confidential data from accidental or unauthorized transfer.
