Berlin, September 5, 2015 - Sirrix AG and Gigaset pro are presenting the new Gigaset Maxwell 10 phone with secure end-to-end encryption at IFA 2015 in Berlin. Sirrix AG has added a function for secure communication to the hardware provided by Gigaset pro to ensure the confidentiality of voice communication.
The innovation presented at IFA 2015 combines the high-quality Gigaset Maxwell 10 phones with the module developed by Sirrix AG for more secure end-to-end telephony based on the NATO SCIP standard. The Gigaset Maxwell phone is also compatible with the Sirrix BizzTrust security solution, thus enabling a comprehensive, intermeshing and secure communication infrastructure.
The communication infrastructure forms a fragile foundation for our information society. Inadequate security on the data highway results in considerable financial damage to our economy – not least through industrial espionage. It is therefore vital nowadays to protect sensitive data against unauthorized access or manipulation and thus prevent serious consequences. Phone and fax services in analog and digital telephone networks – the most widespread means of communication – are especially at risk. The confidentiality of voice communication is increasingly threatened by illegal eavesdropping, since the technical effort required in tapping has continued to decrease with the emergence of Voice over IP (VoIP) and mobile networks.
Sirrix AG’s module for secure end-to-end telephony encrypts the data to be transmitted at the sender. The data can only be encrypted at the recipient, meaning that communication over the entire transmission path is secure. The protocol used for this (SCIP) offers cutting-edge protection thanks to ECDHE and AES-GCM. The Gigaset Maxwell 10 phone is also compatible with BizzTrust: BizzTrust boasts proactive protection against malware and advanced persistent threats (APTs). Unlike existing container and MDM solutions, it also secures the operating system. As a result, BizzTrust also offers reliable protection against attacks by zero-day exploits, which capitalize on hitherto unknown vulnerabilities. Further features are intelligent and secure division of the application areas into a corporate and a private environment, which enable encryption of voice and e-mail communication, as well as data on the mobile device. That also includes encrypted access to sensitive corporate resources, such as the intranet or corporate applications.
Visit Gigaset pro at IFA 2015 in Berlin from September 4 to 9. You can find Gigaset pro at Stand 213 in Hall 4.2b.
