Government Security, Compliance and Remote Access

Posted on August 23, 2010 by Anthony Bonaventura

IT administrators in the government space are concerned about three things when they arrive at their place of work: security, security and security.

With the recent, and not so recent, cyber attacks on military and civilian agency networks, the government is constantly looking to the OEM and system integrator communities for new solutions to insure the lock-down of federal information system networks and servers that carry and hold information critical to the security of our nation.

Couple this daily challenge with compliance directives issued in large part by executive orders and shrinking budgets, data center managers hands are full. Not to mention that these folks have some of the busiest days out of anyone in the federal IT space.

Recent advances in KVM over IP switch makes the day more manageable for federal IT administrators by allowing secure, remote access to federal IT equipment and servers.

There are KVM over IP switches available that have FIPS 140-2 certified encryption as well as Smart Card (CAC) authentication that will secure federal information system servers and allow for FIPS compliance as well as compliance with HSPD-12. These solutions are, by far, more secure than other remote access solutions that are built in to servers.

With more military and civilian agencies moving data centers and disaster recovery sites out of the heart of our nation’s capital, KVM over IP is a secure and affordable solution.
