Security – made in Germany
Currently, analogue and ISDN networks throughout Europe are being switched over to standard Internet Protocol (IP). Thus end customers and resellers are being forced to look more closely at IP telephony for which the issue of security also plays an important role. innovaphone, manufacturer of IP telephony and Unified Communications solutions made in Germany, has a secure solution for this.
Security is a top priority for innovaphone
The innovaphone PBX has a lot of different security mechanisms providing the best possible protection against a wide variety of attacks. In this context, innovaphone is permitted, for example, to carry the quality seal „IT security made in Germany“ from TeleTrusT, the German IT security association (Bundesverband IT-Sicherheit e.V.). It is awarded exclusively to German IT companies, which develop their products in Germany and meet strict criteria on IT security and data protection.
The innovaphone PBX runs on a very lean and fast operating system that has been developed especially. Viruses, worms and Trojans are not known for this operating system. The different ways of communicating from establishing connections, over voice and data connections to administration and address data access can be controlled via a variety of standardized security protocols. The DTLS-SRTP protocol allows device-to-device encryption. This high degree of security is available for all innovaphone PBX connections, if necessary.
innovaphone Session Border Controller - on board
The increased prevalence of SIP ports caused by the Europe-wide changeover from the ISDN network to All IP is accompanied by uncertainty and new security requirements, because All IP makes it necessary for every PBX to be open to the internet. The innovaphone session border controller (SBC) supports all relevant security mechanisms and thus reliably protects the innovaphone PBX against attacks from the Internet. Since the innovaphone SBC is directly integrated in the innovaphone PBX, no other external or third-party SBC is needed. This simplifies installation and ensures 100% compatibility, bringing a cost advantage for the customer. The innovaphone SBC can either run as a separate process on the innovaphone PBX or can be installed on a separate innovaphone VoIP gateway.
Anywhere Workplace - flexible and secure
One special challenge for security is caused by the additional demands of borderless communication and mobility such as exists in unified communications and WebRTC solutions. The innovaphone Reverse Proxy is particularly suited to such Anywhere Workplace scenarios. As an independent component in the innovaphone Reverse Proxy, it serves as a central authority for all inbound connections from the Internet. As a result, attacks are detected and repelled at an early stage. In the same way as the innovaphone SBC, the innovaphone Reverse Proxy can either run as a separate process on the innovaphone PBX or be installed on a separate innovaphone VoIP gateway, e.g. the IP0011.
