Raritan Adds New Features to Its Dominion KX III IP User Station for Remote Server Management

Raritan, a provider of intelligent data center management and rack power distribution solutions, part of the brand portfolio of listed company Legrand which also includes Minkels, has introduced new security and performance features for its Dominion KX III User Station at the Department of Defense Intelligence Information Systems (DoDIIS) Worldwide Conference.

The User Station would simplify how IT professionals access and manage multiple servers and other devices connected to Raritan’s Dominion KX III KVM switch. Later this month, Raritan plans to further expand its solutions geared toward government data center and lab environments.

Both the KX III and User Station now meet widely used U.S. government security mandates, including:

  • Smart Card/CAC authentication
  • LDAP, RADIUS or Active Directory authentication
  • Certified FIPS 140-2 cryptographic module
  • 256-bit AES or 128-bit RC4 encryption
  • Dual-stack networking: IPv4 and IPv6

According to Richard Dominach, Director of Product Management at Raritan, the User Station can replace outdated analog matrix switches or expensive, inflexible broadcast systems; and, can be used in environments where a PC is not wanted.

“Our server and IT infrastructure management solutions are widely deployed by government agencies, defense contractors, and the military because of their security and high-performance features,” said Mr. Dominach. “Our solutions are known to improve productivity, collaboration, and mean time to repair – all without sacrificing security.”

Raritan will be at DoDIIS, in booth 936, to showcase the new User Station, KX III KVM switch, intelligent rack PDUs, and SX II Serial Console Server for managing serial devices such as routers, switches, and blade servers.

These Raritan solutions also will be shown at:

  • Los Alamos National Laboratory Tech Expo, 10/24/16
  • Kirtland AFB Tech Expo, 10/25/16
  • Holloman AFB Tech Expo, 10/27/16
