At a time when global cyberattacks are on the rise, Legrand has launched a new line of Raritan KVM switches that comply with stringent requirements designed to protect against hackers and cyberattacks.
The lab-tested and certified Raritan Secure Switches (RSS) 4.0 meet the specifications of the National Information Assurance Partnership’s 4.0 Peripheral Sharing Device and can be used by government, military, and intelligence agencies working with classified systems. The Protection Profile defines the latest requirements U.S. and Canadian government agencies must follow to use classified systems securely. Data from Check Point Research found that cyberattacks increased 38% worldwide from 2021 to 2022. The data show that the second largest target was the government/military sector, facing an average of 1,661 attacks per organization per week, up 46% from the year before.
RSS 4.0 protects against unauthorized data flow between systems, physical and logical tampering, data retention, and unauthorized intrusion. Legrand has built an esteemed reputation as a provider of KVM switches for over three decades and is a leader in the government and military sectors. Other security-minded organizations can also benefit from its new technology, including law enforcement, financial and healthcare institutions.
“Data security has become a major concern for organizations of every size, and we expect that to only increase in coming years as technological innovations continue to transform our world,” said Paul Mott, director of product management at Raritan. “RSS 4.0 is designed to give users flexibility and control over their systems while keeping them safe from the myriad threats seeking access to sensitive information. Though built to comply with standards for government, military, and intelligence agencies, this next generation of KVM switches can be used to help protect data in any industry.”
