Belkin Builds on Cyber Security Strategy with the Introduction of New Secure DisplayPort KVM Switch for Federal and Defense Agencies

New KVM Switch Helps Create a More Unified, Intuitive and Secure Work Environment for Organizations Handling Confidential Data on Separate Networks 

PLAYA VISTA, Calif. – July 16, 2013 – Belkin, a trusted leader of technology solutions for cyber security and government agencies, today announced the expansion of its award-winning secure product line with the addition of the Belkin DisplayPort KVM Switch. The new switch offers the ideal solution for federal and defense users who handle sensitive or confidential information and need a seamless, coherent environment working on multiple networks with different security levels.

DisplayPort is increasingly popular with the government sector because it offers high graphics resolution in a non-consumer HDMI format. Unlike HDMI, DisplayPort cables are securely fastened which minimizes down time that results when a loose cable is dislodged. In addition, no licensing fees are required, as with HDMI, and DisplayPort is significantly thinner and smaller than DVI.

While DisplayPort adoption is on the rise, there are security concerns involved with the transfer of information beyond display signals, making data vulnerable and security a challenge. Belkin is the first and only vendor to develop a Secure KVM Switch with support for DisplayPort technology. The switch, which is Common Criteria validated to EAL 4+, includes security mechanisms to protect DisplayPort channels and prevent leakage of information between connected computers and displays. These mechanisms provide isolation even if two connected computers are infected with malicious code attempting to target the KVM.

In addition, users today face a greater demand to monitor a growing amount of data and perform multiple tasks at the same time. Belkin addresses this by making the Secure DisplayPort KVM Switch the first to support up to four monitors on one system. As a result, users can more effectively keep an eye on more data simultaneously for improved intelligence and decision making. 

As with all Belkin Secure KVM products, the DisplayPort KVM Switch is designed to thwart cyber-attacks by reinforcing user desktop security with the most advanced and secure commercially available KVM technology available. Additional Secure DisplayPort KVM Switch features include:

  • Protected DisplayPort channel switching – Security mechanisms protect DisplayPort channels, preventing leakage of information between connected computers and peripherals
  • Full support of all DisplayPort 1.2 resolutions up to 3840×2160
  • Dedicated processors with emulators for every port – Isolated port paths for video, audio, peripherals, and smart card readers prevent data leaks between computers
  • Unidirectional data paths – Optical data diodes prevent peripherals from being used to breach systems
  • Display security – Protected display interface prevents data leakage via the monitor
  • Peripheral management – USB device detection prevents unauthorized peripheral usage
  • Anti-tampering – Internal electrical sensors render unit inoperable if opened

“Belkin works side by side with government users to understand the real challenges associated with cyber security. These insights are factored into the design of the Secure DisplayPort KVM and our strategy to expand on Belkin’s secure product line,” said Luis Artiz, director of product management, Business Division, Belkin International Belkin. “We’re committed to investing in innovative solutions that secure the user computing environment and look forward to continuing to unveil new solutions that address cyber security concerns.” 

Belkin’s DisplayPort KVM Switch will be available August 1, 2013 through the company’s network of authorized channel partners.

IC Realtime Introduces Cost-Effective Thermal Imaging Surveillance Camera; Leverages military channel experience and lower cost of goods to deliver a game-changer for the residential and light commercial markets

Pompano Beach, FL – July 1, 2013 – Video surveillance products brand IC Realtime has developed a cost-effective thermal imaging surveillance camera for the residential and light commercial markets. Called The SEEKER, the camera captures people, objects and activity in total darkness with complete accuracy and is impervious to adverse weather conditions. The SEEKER retails in the $3,000 price range and is shipping now.

“Thermal cameras provide the highest level of detail and capture distance because they focus solely on heat imprints (which don’t dissipate over distance),” says IC Realtime CEO Matt Sailor. “If the object is living — or very hot like a car, boat or plane — the thermal camera can see its imprint. This significantly reduces false alarms common to standard cameras brought on by trees, reflection, water and many others factors that create a false motion alert. For these reasons, nearly every install can greatly benefit from the thermal camera.”

IC Realtime is well-versed in high-end thermal surveillance gear, having supplied the military and other government agencies for many years. According to Sailor, the goal behind The SEEKER was to make this technology available to the custom residential and light to medium commercial markets at a more cost-effective price. The company leveraged its acumen in this arena along with recent lower costs of thermal components. “Previously this type of technology would have cost three to four times more,” says Sailor.

“Our ability to deliver a thermal camera to the masses for about the same price as a high-end PTZ (pan/tilt/zoon) camera is a huge deal,” adds Sailor. “This is a great leap forward with respect to the type of precision monitoring that installers can now bring to their clients.”

The infrared thermal detectors utilized in The SEEKER are composed of Vanadium Oxide (VOx). The de facto standard for ‘uncooled’ thermal imaging detectors, VOx produces results 3 times better than detectors composed of Amorphous Silicon (a-Si) or Barium Strontium Titanate (BST) (used with a lens of the same relative aperture).

For more information on THE SEEKER, contact IC Realtime at 954.772.5327. Description and specs can be read at: http://www.icrealtime.com/solutions/pdshowg.asp?pdid=THESEEKER
