KbPort™ Protecting your Future
Institutions that conduct high-stakes testing or utilize recording in real-life clinical settings should be cognizant of exposure to HIPPA or FERPA violations caused by vulnerable system components that could impact a program’s funding, accreditation, or even, reputation. As a proactive, security-minded vendor, KbPort™ takes our customer’s privacy and security responsibilities seriously. Over the last decade, a primary objective of KbPort™ has been to source the best hardware available to ensure the highest capture and real-time streaming quality with next to zero delay. KbPort™ also continually evaluates its offerings and works directly with manufacturers and suppliers to provide its customers with the most secure and up-to-date equipment available.
In addition to utilizing vetted, industry-leading brands for hardware components, proprietary KbPort™ technology provides secured access controls, industry-standard 256-bit AES data encryption, and end-user safeguards that help you to both simplify and effectively maintain the information security of your simulation program’s technology environment. Designed to function like an appliance in your house, KbPort™ solutions are engineered to be used exclusively for the purposes for which they are sold.
As a self-contained solution, most-common computing tasks that are unrelated to running, capturing, or evaluating simulations (e.g. browsing the internet, playing games, installing apps, downloading and opening files external to the system) are blocked and not accessible when working from a KbPort™ system. While this doesn’t preclude users from doing such tasks on client PCs (which may be used to access and control a KbPort™ system), our locked-down system design prevents malicious programs from being installed or critical data (e.g. captured videos, student data, and performance evaluations) from being corrupted. Finally, KbPort™ solutions are powered by a custom Linux® kernel. Linux® is generally recognized by industry experts to be a very secure operating system and is backed by an extensive worldwide developer base. KbPort™ also offers Professional Services and consults directly with IT departments to develop the best possible deployment configuration that meets or exceeds your institution’s unique security situation.
