The K2016E secure KVM switch features the most protections and separations between connected computers available on the market. This KVM switch eliminates points of vulnerability that have plagued other KVM units.

With sixteen connected computers, the K2016E offers impressive levels of seamless communications even when connecting computers that are on different levels of security clearance and Internet access. The K2016E utilizes unidirectional optical datadiodes which isolates all connections from any possible points of data leakage among peripherals. Every K2016E secure KVM switch is rigorously and extensively tested to ensure it will remain stalwart against any known form of KVM security attacks. The unit has been certified to meet EAL 4+ standards to assure it provides the highest level of security possible.

This product offers the highest possible separation between connected computers. The K2016E uses unidirectional optical data diodes to prevent any potential leakage between the highly-isolated peripheral channels. This KVM can also be used to securely filter and lock USB ports preventing data export/import through mass-storage devices by hardware. The K2016E also features a special secured port for a Common Access Card (CAC) reader to support user authentication across multiple isolated networks.
