The Avocent Cybex SwitchView SC140-001 is a 1x4 KVM Switch with intrusion detection. This KVM Switch includes three layers of tamper-proof hardware security to enhance security at the desktop. In addition, SwitchView SC140-001 switch ensures that only USB human interface devices (HIDs) function on target computers by constantly monitoring all devices attached to the console ports. This KVM switch ignores communication from non-HIDs (such as flash drives, hard disk drives, cameras and printers) when switching data to the target. In situations where the only USB port(s) for HIDs are enabled on the target computer, the SwitchView SC switch will not introduce security vulnerabilities. The SwitchView SC140-001 switch offers flexible connectivity with support for USB and/or PS/2 peripherals and target computers.
U.S designed firmware allows only keyboard and mouse human interface devices (HID) to switch to the target computers. Devices that can be considered unsecure such as flash drives or other mass storage devices, cameras and all other USB devices are strictly prohibited by the switch firmware
Three layers of hardware security
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 unit. 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 to eight fully secure channels.
Automatically clears the keyboard buffer immediately after data is transmitted through the switch, so no data is ever left in the switch.
