Legrand Releases Version 4.0 of Raritan’s Industry-Leading Secure KVM Switches, Raising Bar for Secure Desktop Access

Posted on July 31, 2023

West Hartford, Conn. – August 1, 2023Legrand, the global specialist in electrical and digital building infrastructures, is meeting the needs of government, military, and intelligence agencies working with classified systems with a new line of Raritan KVM switches that comply with stringent requirements designed to protect systems from hackers and cyberattacks.

The Raritan Secure Switches (RSS) 4.0 have been lab-tested and certified to meet the specifications of the National Information Assurance Partnership’s 4.0 Peripheral Sharing Device. This Protection Profile defines the latest requirements U.S. and Canadian government agencies must follow to use classified systems securely. As a trusted provider of KVM switches for over three decades, Raritan is established as a leader in KVM innovations in the government and military sectors. Other security-conscious organizations in and outside North America can also benefit from this new technology, including law enforcement, financial and healthcare institutions.

RSS 4.0 protects against unauthorized data flow between systems, physical and logical tampering, data retention, and unauthorized intrusion. In addition, Common Access Card (CAC) authentication is supported, and unauthorized USB peripherals (i.e., flash drives) are blocked. RSS 4.0 is available with two, four, and eight ports. Some new models include dual monitor support. Raritan also implemented a pure digital switch architecture to support HDMI and DisplayPort-based devices. Various video resolutions are supported, including high-definition and 4K Ultra HD.

“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,” says 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.”

Other key features and benefits of the RSS 4.0 include:

  • Isolation between computers at different classification levels
  • Tamper resistance
  • Intrusion detection to disable unauthorized operations
  • Keyboard data automatically cleared
  • Limited USB connectivity to restrict USB devices
  • Built-in, internal power supply
  • Support for Wired Port Selector accessory
