COMPTON, Calif., 15 August 2006. Belkin designed its new OmniView secure KVM switch to ensure classified and unclassified computers are kept separate and secure at all times, and to prevent data transfer among them. The solution enables government users to control multiple USB computers from a single USB console, while ensuring the integrity of their data.

The secure KVM switch is listed by the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP), and is pending NIAP Common Criteria validation to EAL 4.

The Switch will ship in North America in late August, with launches in Asia, Europe, and Australia to follow shortly.

The secure KVM switch features a dedicated processor for each computer port. There is no memory buffer or data-storage capability, making it impossible for keystrokes and other data to unintentionally transfer as the user switches between computers.

Designed especially for VGA computers and monitors, Belkin's secure KVM switch provides full support for all USB keyboards and mice and supports 1920x1440 video resolution. A rugged, metal enclosure and compact design allows for desktop or 1U rack-mountable installation.
