TeleTrusT includes VoIP manufacturer innovaphone as a member:

innovaphone solutions are allowed to use the quality mark "IT security made in Germany"

Sindelfingen, March 6 2014 - Systematic data surveillance by the NSA data has caused uncertainty even among German companies. This is increasing the importance of quality marks certifying the security of professional communication solutions. innovaphone, a leading German manufacturer of IP telephony and Unified Communications solutions, is now allowed to use the "IT security made in Germany" mark, awarded by TeleTrusT, the German IT security association. 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 German quality mark "IT security made in Germany" is one measure to counteract the loss of confidence in Internet-based communication systems surrounding the NSA revelations and was established in 2005 on the initiative of the Federal Ministry of the Interior (BMI), the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi), as well as representatives of the German IT security industry.

The protected quality mark is awarded to companies who commit to ensure the reliability and legal compliance of the IT solutions on offer and to undertake research and development for security issues in Germany. In particular, the carrier of the TeleTrusT quality mark must meet the following requirements:
1. The company’s headquarters shall be in Germany.
2. The company shall offer trusted IT security solutions.
3. The products may contain no hidden access (no "backdoors").
4. The company’s IT security research and development shall take place in Germany.
5. The company shall undertake to comply with the requirements of German data protection law.

For innovaphone, the security mark is a confirmation of many years of development work: "As a manufacturer, we have always implemented all conceivable mechanisms in our products to ensure maximum security. Our modular system has all possible security protocols - SIPS, H. 235, SRTP, AES, HTTPS, LDAPS and more, so that the appropriate technical measures can be taken by the person installing our innovaphone PBX,“  says Dagmar Geer, CEO, innovaphone AG. “We understand ‘The IT security made in Germany’ mark to be another proof concerning the reliability of our solutions," emphasizes Geer.
In the current crisis, innovaphone is benefiting from the confidence that the company has established itself for many years as a reliable German manufacturer, which is familiar with the specific requirements of telephony in Europe. "Also the operating system that we have developed ourselves operates completely independently and is not subject to virus attacks to the same extent as common operating systems," emphasizes Dagmar Geer.
