snom technology, a leading developer of IP desktop business phones, today announced that it has partnered with Secusmart GmbH to develop secure desktop telephones that prohibit tapping.

The phone, the SecuGATE LV1 snom edition, will be demonstrated at the CeBIT trade show in Hannover, Germany (March 10-14) and will be available worldwide later this year. The first snom phone to feature the security feature will be the snom 760, an executive-level phone with a color display, Gigabit Ethernet, two USB ports, HD audio and 16 multifunction keys.

Secusmart’s technology uses an encrypted security card, inserted into a slot on the phone that prohibits voice traffic from being hacked and intercepted.

This adds a layer of protection that is crucial to governments and enterprises looking to safeguard their most valuable asset – company data.

“It’s important to safeguard enterprise voice communications at all levels and on all devices, “said Dr. Michael Knieling, chief operating officer of snom technology AG. “This solution ensures that voice data is secure from hackers.”

Secusmart is perhaps best known for its SecuSUITE technology, which is used to secure the mobile phone of German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

“We have been protecting all mobile communication in German government ministries from eavesdropping and now we are expanding our focus to landline communication,” said Dr. Hans-Christoph Quelle, managing director of Secusmart.

snom and Secusmart have worked together since 2012, and have long emphasized usability and simplicity.

“Our common goal is anti-tapping protection,” said Dr. Quelle.
Security consistency ranks as a top IT concern. That’s why enterprises go to great lengths to protect their data from breaches and intrusions. According to Gartner Inc. the worldwide market for security technology and services is expected to reach $86 billion in 2016.

Voice communication is no less sensitive than documents stored on a server. snom and Secusmart understand this, and are ensuring that all forms of corporate information, including voice, are safeguarded against hackers.
