    PROTECTING CONFIDENTIAL DATA FROM THE HUMAN THREAT: THINKLOGICAL WHITE PAPER OFFERS BEST PRACTICES FOR SECURE FACILITIES DESIGN FOR GOVERNMENT AND BUSINESS

    Recent National Security Breach Highlights Need to Strictly Control User Access to Digital Data via Secure Fiber Optic KVM Signal Extension and Routing Technology

    MILFORD, Conn. – Thinklogical LLC, a global manufacturer of secure fiber optic video and KVM routing and extension systems, announced today the availability of a white paper for government and business organizations that outlines best practices to reduce the threat of a breach of confidential data in visual computing and data analysis environments.

    Surveys of IT professionals have consistently pointed to internal users as major security threats. These findings are supported by recent events; according to published reports, Edward Snowden stole confidential government information by downloading the data to laptop computers and USB drives while at work.  In 2010, Pfc. Bradley Manning is alleged to have stolen and released classified U.S. Army information to WikiLeaks in a similar manner. These events highlight the need for government and business organizations to take additional steps to control access to data sources by end users and increase overall system security.

    The Thinklogical white paper, titled “Recommended Best Practices for the Design of Secure Multi-Domain KVM and Video Routing Systems,” is available as a download from the Thinklogical web site page. The paper reviews the industry’s current understanding of the security threat, and explores best practices for designing visual computing and data analysis systems to ensure the security of the content, as well as the operation of the system itself. This is achieved by separating the source PCs from the end user environment via fiber-optic keyboard, video and mouse (KVM) signal extension and routing technology, while preventing user ability to copy or steal data through interface devices (such as USB drives) and public network connections.

    “As we are seeing with the unfolding of events in the Edward Snowden case, the focus of an attack is either to steal content, disrupt the operation of the system, or both, with the intent of crippling the effective operations of businesses and government organizations,” said Joe Pajer, president and CEO of Thinklogical. “The attacker is always a person who has gained some immediate or remote access to the system, and quite often they are an internal user.”

    Pajer added, “A robust visual computing and data analysis system design first seeks to physically secure and separate the target of an attack — the content — from the threat; that is, the people and users of the content who may have malicious intent. This white paper offers proven approaches to this critical challenge based on our experience in hundreds of secure installations worldwide.”
