Thinklogical TLX KVM Matrix Switches Achieve Common Criteria EAL4 Accreditation

Thinklogical is the Only Fiber-Based KVM and Video Distribution System in the World to Meet Stringent Information Assurance Requirements

MILFORD, CONN. –  Sept. 28, 2016 -- Thinklogical, a leading provider of secure, high-performance KVM signal extension and switching systems for video-rich applications, announced today that its TLX48, TLX320, and TLX640 fiber-optic KVM (keyboard, video, and mouse) matrix switches have achieved Common Criteria certification at Evaluation Assurance Level 4 (EAL4).

Common Criteria is a set of international standards that provides a common framework for evaluating security features and capabilities of information technology products. EAL4 is the highest assurance level that is recognized globally for KVM products.

Many government, defense and intelligence agencies, as well as security-sensitive commercial industries such as oil and gas, energy and utilities, healthcare, and financial services, require or recommend that audio-visual and IT products purchased be Common Criteria certified to protect their mission-critical infrastructures.

“The ability to immediately access and analyze multiple classifications of video and data creates instant situational awareness and leads to information superiority, a key element of achieving a successful mission,” said Joe Pajer, president and CEO of Thinklogical. “These new information assurance accreditations validate Thinklogical’s investment in product innovations that deliver on demanding customer requirements for flexible and highly-secure command and control signal management solutions in a multiple classification environment, while also reducing infrastructure costs.”

Thinklogical’s TLX is the first KVM system in the market to deliver extension and switching of full resolution 4K DCI video (up to 4096 x 2160 resolution, 4:4:4 chroma subsampling, 30-bits per pixel color depth, 60Hz frame rate) at an uncompressed 10Gbps bandwidth. Thinklogical products that have achieved EAL4 certification previously include the VX and MX series of 6.25Gbps bandwidth matrix switches, making Thinklogical the only KVM systems provider offering multiple lines of Common Criteria-accredited, fiber-optic matrix switches and video routers configured to meet a wide range of application sizes and use cases.

Thinklogical matrix switches provide fast and secure routing of keyboard, video, mouse, audio, and computer peripheral signals from multiple sources to multiple destinations, with data path isolation and partitioning, allowing their use in highly secure applications such as command and control facilities and emergency operations centers. Thinklogical systems uniquely enable multi-domain isolation, allowing for any to any switching in a multiple domain environment, through a single system, while also reducing AV and IT infrastructure, improving data security, and lowering total overall cost of ownership.
