This week, ATEN introduced new security-reinforced desktop KVM switches -- ideal for environments where security is paramount.

The new CS1182 and CS1184, two- and four-port DVI-based KVM switches housed in a rugged metal enclosure, ensure data integrity when switching between computers operating on different secure networks. The CS1182/CS1184 are   NIAP-certified which complies with the Common Criteria EAL2+ for Peripheral Sharing Switch (PSS) Human Interface Devices Protection Profile v2.1. The NIAP is operated by the National Security Agency (NSA) and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

The new secure desktop KVM switches provide users with hardware security features such as tamper-evident tape, providing a visual indication of any attempted access to the switch’s internal components, and chassis intrusion detection, which disables the unit if only one of the screws is removed. In accordance with the NIAP requirements, all integrated circuits are soldered directly onto the circuit board to prevent component tampering.
