Advanced KVM Technology Protects Government Desktops from Cyberthreats A -A http://bit.ly/NSKqzS
VNM100312 – Over a three-year period, government agencies reported a 400-percent increase in attempted incursions into federal systems – demonstrating that cyber attacks on government systems are increasing at an exponential rate. While there is no current data on the number of attempts to compromise intelligence and defense computer systems, they are no doubt under similar stress as foreign governments, terrorists, and malicious hackers target classified data and government documents, attempt to shut down networks and destroy valuable infrastructure, and steal intellectual property.
Firewall protection alone is not enough to deter sophisticated cyber threats. One of the least understood and most under-utilized preventative measures for thwarting attacks is the use of keyboard-video-mouse (KVM) switching devices that allow government employees to switch between networks with various security levels from one desktop. Cyber attacks from within an agency need to be as rigorously addressed as those originating from outside sources. However, government purchasers of KVM products need to thoroughly vet the security features, design, manufacture, and even the packaging of any product before trusting a deployment in any areas that require high security.
