IHSE’s mission critical KVM solutions

​​When uncompromising security is required

In defense, government and other restricted information applications, security is imperative. Leakage of confidential information quickly becomes a serious threat and managers must ensure that their systems provide the highest level of protection against external and internal threats.

IHSE’s Common Criteria certified KVM extenders offer a new level of security that helps to maintain complete data integrity and to prevent unauthorized access. Draco tera KVM switching systems enable provisioned, protected computer access, secure switching & sharing where defined users can safely and immediately access resources operating at multiple data classification levels.

Computer access for defense and high security applications

KVM stands for Keyboard, Video and Mouse, referring to the familiar workplace computer input and output devices. IHSE’s mission-critical system solutions extend the distance between the computer and peripheral devices (keyboard, screen, mouse). Allowing users to select between different source devices to create more comfortable and efficient working environments and streamlined workflows.

IHSE offers KVM products for the switching, sharing, extension and conversion of all types of computer signals, including analog and digital video and audio, USB and SDI video; applicable to all markets. Long distances are bridged by Cat X, fiber or mixed cabling, depending on requirements and applications. IHSE KVM solutions stand for upmost security, preventing unauthorized access or injection of malware and guarding data security.

IHSE’s Draco vario KVMA Isolated Secure Extender enables remote computer access in high-security environments that must meet stringent cyber security specifications – such as government, defense and critical infrastructure. Provisioned users can control multiple computers and systems using the same set of peripherals (keyboard, monitor, mouse) without exposing confidential data to attack.

Extenders are equipped with specific shielding layers on both the hardware and integral firmware to prevent eavesdropping and signal detection from Radiofrequency (RF) Radiation. Restricted hardware access also protects from bulk data theft (e.g. via USB flash drive) or the injection of malware.

Common Criteria PP4

The Common Criteria PP4 certification is a prestigious and rigorous standard for equipment used in environments that may be subject to a high risk of infiltration and require special security measures. Certification is only issued after extremely sophisticated testing by independent institutions.

This is a mandatory requirement for many security-focused applications around the world. The certification process includes intensive analysis of weak spots and a thorough analysis of equipment design by independent security experts. Common Criteria PP4 certification confirms the high security standard of IHSE products.

The Draco vario KVMA Isolated Secure Extender allows provisioned users to select and control any computer located in the secured and access-restricted server room via the KVM matrix. Each connected Draco vario KVMA Isolated Secure Extender also acts as an isolator for the KVM system at the endpoints, keeping the integrity of the Secure Core KVM network intact.

In combination with Draco tera KVM matrix switches and Draco vario extenders it is also possible to set up a secure combination of classified and unclassified endpoints. The IHSE KVM system enables precise user access rights management as required in government and defense installations with separated classified and unclassified environments.
