(Playa Vista, CA) - Oct. 11, 2011 - Belkin is pleased to announce its selection as a finalist for the Government Security News (GSN) magazine Homeland Security Awards. The GSN Homeland Security Awards celebrate the ongoing public-private partnership between all branches of federal, state and local government in the United States and the private sector vendors of IT security and physical security products, solutions and technologies, whose combined efforts successfully defend and protect the nation's people, property and way of life. Winners will be announced at the 2011 awards dinner on November 14 at the JW Marriott Hotel in Washington, D.C.
The annual event honors finalists and winners in three broad categories, including:
Belkin is a finalist in the Vendors of IT Security Products and Solutions category. Their Advanced Secure DVI-I Keyboard-Video-Mouse (KVM) Switch, which was released earlier this year, is up for the Best Endpoint Security Solution award.
Offering superior security and data protection for government agencies by providing true data path isolation between systems and networks, the Advanced Secure DVI-I KVM Switch is fully compatible with legacy and new government systems and exceeds NIAP security requirements.
“We are extremely honored to be recognized as a finalist for the GSN Homeland Security awards,” says Luis Artiz, director of product management at Belkin. “Our new NIAP EAL 2+ Secure KVM is the first of its kind to employ optical diodes to guarantee uni-directional data paths, preventing peripherals from being used to leak information from one computer system to another. Additional security is provided through its end-to-end tamper-proof system that prevents physical tampering, and its intuitive user interface reduces user-switching errors by providing clear identification.”
