Government agencies require leading-edge technology and iron-clad compliance. Raritan delivers both.

Designed to meet the very latest procurement and security standards and requirements, Raritan solutions are installed in a wide range of federal, state and local government agencies. Among our long list of government customers are the Air Force, Army, CIA, NASA, Navy, NSA, Pentagon, the State Department and many others.

Raritan KVM Meets Compliance Requirements

NEW Raritan meets the DoD SIPRNet Mandate with Paragon II.To ensure the secure transmission of classified and secret information, the U.S. Government has mandated that all access to all military, intelligence and other agency classified systems will require the use of a limited-access computer network SIPRNet token. This is a hardware token, cryptographically bound to the user’s identify. Raritan’s Paragon II with an integrated card reader supports SIPRNet tokens. Download Brief Here

HSPD-12, SIPRNet and FIPS 201 and PIV Compliance
HSPD-12, issued by Homeland Security, requires all federal employees and contractors to use a Common Access Card (CAC) and Personal Identity Verification (PIV) card when accessing federally controlled information systems. For access to military, intelligence and other agency classified systems, a SIPRNet token will be needed.  Raritan solutions allow users to access IT equipment through KVM switches that integrate with Smart Card technology.  Selected Raritan products also support Federal Information Processing Standard 201 (FIPS 201).  Learn more about Raritan’s smart card/CAC / SIPRNET KVM solutions.

FIPS 140-2 Compliant Encryption
For government, military and other high security applications, the Dominion KX II is the first and only digital KVM switch utilizing a validated FIPS 140-2 Cryptographic Module for enhanced encryption and security. Modules tested and validated as conforming FIPS 140-2 are accepted by the federal agencies of the U.S. and Canada for the protection of sensitive information.  See our FIPS 140-2 Solutions page

Section 508 Requirements
Section 508 requirements do not apply to Raritan’s KVM Switches. However, our KVM Switches are compatible with standard user input devices (keyboards & pointing devices) and standard video monitors that can be designed to support Section 508 requirements.  Details here
