The K524E 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 four connected dual-head computers, the K524E offers impressive levels of seamless communications even when connecting computers that are on different levels of security clearance and Internet access. Users can set up two displays to get the most out of dual-head computers. The K524E utilizes unidirectional optical data-diodes which insulates all connections from any possible points of data leakage among peripherals. Every K524E 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.
