The Avocent SwitchView SC440 KVM switches offer proven, secure access for any workstation environment where security is mandatory. With USB Common Access Card (CAC) reader support, and controlled USB connectivity, you can consolidate multiple workstations of varying security classification levels with one keyboard, monitor and mouse without compromising network security. Three levels of physical security including tamper-evident tape, chassis intrusion detection and locked memory prevents malicious tampering with the switch. Dual link video offers uncompromising video quality up to 2560 x 1600 @ 60 Hz.


The SwitchView SC440 switches allow desktop IT administrators to deploy a single CAC reader that will switch to all computers connected to the switch. (CAC support is required for all government employees attempting to log in to government systems and is specified in the Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 [HSPD12].) These switches include three layers of tamper-proof hardware security at the desktop. In addition, SwitchView SC420 switches ensure that only USB human interface devices (HID’s) function on target computers by constantly monitoring all devices attached to the console ports. These switches ignore communication from non-HID’s (such as flash drives, hard disk drives, cameras and printers) when switching data to the target.
