Secure Switch
Fujitsu Components America released a KVM switch that electrically isolates in-house, LAN-connected PCs from Internet-connected PCs to prevent possible virus infection and block hacker attacks. The device also blocks unauthorized Internet uploads and downloads by in-house users. The four-port SERVIS Secure KVM switch allows four users to share read-only access to one external LAN-connected PC. It can also be used to switch between software development and other users' machines, as well as in-house network machines.
