snom technology is teaming with GSMK CryptoPhone to launch the snom 870 CryptoPhone, what the companies call a highly secure desktop phone for high security business and government environments. The snom 870 CryptoPhone combines snom’s VoIP telephony hardware and software with GSMK’s voice and message-encryption firmware.
The partnership includes research and development, marketing and sales strategy, and product support. The snom 870 CryptoPhone is the first product to result from the partnership and is fully compatible with all GSMK CryptoPhone IP mobile, satellite and fixed-line encryption products, allowing secure end-to-end encrypted calls across network borders.
“The CryptoPhone is a universal, easy-to-use IP-based desktop phone that allows secure end-to-end encrypted calls,” said Bjoern Rupp, CEO of GSMK CryptoPhone. Users are protected by military-grade security and can communicate over any IP network including fixed-line and satellite, ensuring they are safeguarded against the threat of malicious eavesdroppers.”
“Our highly interoperable, very functional desktop phones marry well with GSMK’s military level encryption to deliver seamless unified communications to corporations, without compromising sensitive information,” said Dr. Michael Knieling, executive vice president of Marketing and Sales for snom.
The CryptoPhone’s hardware is based on the snom 870 desktop phone, which boasts a large, full-color, touch-screen display and intuitive interface. snom says the addition of GSMK’s security and encryption technology makes the 870 CryptoPhone a high-end, full-functioned and fully secure desktop phone for high security businesses, organizations and government agencies around the world.
“With phone fraudsters increasingly trying to access confidential data by listening in on communication over the phone, this solution will help businesses and governments neutralize outsider threats by providing 360 degree security,” Rupp said.
GSMK CryptoPhone and snom are planning a series of other product releases in the near future.
