The Avocent® SwitchView® SC420, SC440 and SC540 KVM switches offer proven, secure access for any workstation environment where security is mandatory. With USB Common Access Card (CAC) reader support, and controlled USB connectivity, you can consolidate multiple workstations of varying security classification levels with one keyboard, monitor and mouse without compromising network security. Three levels of physical security including tamper-evident tape, chassis intrusion detection and locked memory prevents malicious tampering with the switch. Dual link video offers uncompromising video quality up to 2560 x 1600 @ 60 Hz. Dual head video (SC540 only) supports the most demanding workstation requirements
The SwitchView SC420, SC440 and SC540 switches allow desktop IT administrators to deploy a single CAC reader that will switch to all computers connected to the switch. (CAC support is required for all government employees attempting to log in to government systems and is specified in the Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 [HSPD12].) Both switches include three layers of tamper-proof hardware security at the desktop. In addition, SwitchView SC420, SC440 and SC540 switches ensure that only USB human interface devices (HID’s) function on target computers by constantly monitoring all devices attached to the console ports. These switches ignore communication from non-HID’s (such as flash drives, hard disk drives, cameras and printers) when switching data to the target.
The SwitchView® SC420, SC440 and SC540 are in process for NIAP Common Criteria validation to EAL 4+.
U.S-designed firmware allows only keyboard, mouse and common access cards (CAC) human interface devices (HID) to switch to the target computers. Devices considered unsecure, such as flash drives or other mass storage devices, cameras and all other USB devices, are strictly prohibited by the switch firmware.
Tamper-evident tape: A visual indication of an attempt to gain access to the internal components of the switch Chassis intrusion detection: Prevents malicious tampering with the switch. If the cover is removed from the switch, the switch becomes inoperable and the LEDs flash Locked memory: Prevents tampering and reprogramming of the firmware
Two (SC420) to four (SC440 & SC540) fully secure channels isolated to 60db. Safely switch between computers operating at different classification levels – without compromising network security.
Automatically clears the keyboard buffer immediately after data is transmitted through the switch, so no data is ever left in the switch
