Snom telephones are designed with professionals in mind
Within the professional services market—which includes architecture, engineering, consulting, accounting, legal, and financial sectors—the uptake of IP telephony has been more rapid that in many other areas. It is especially important for these individuals to be easily reachable via telephone; the success of their businesses depends on it. IP telephony also enables features such as mobility and conferencing, which are important business tools.
Snom telephones are designed with these considerations in mind. We understand the necessity of comfort for those on the phone for long periods of time, voice quality for those whose businesses may depend on accurate understanding of the client’s needs, and ease of use for the general professional user. Professional services companies also consider central management a key requirement in IP telephony systems, and Snom proudly fulfills this need with centrally configurable telephones and web-browser-based management.
Information transmitted and stored securely
Organizations handling confidential information must ensure it gets held and transmitted securely and appropriately. A number of laws, principles, and obligations govern how organizations should handle this requirement. These laws have grown increasingly complex, and the security demands of IP telephony more urgent.
Eavesdropping is one of the most common threats in a VoIP environment. If the VoIP traffic over the internet is unencrypted, anyone with network access can listen in on conversations. Equally or more dangerous than the hacking of phone calls themselves is that the phone system may allow access into company networks. The phone connection is a portal to all data within the company, and must be treated as such.
Concern about the massive growth of telephone-tapping incidents has led to a larger demand for secure telephone handsets. The practical availability of secure telephones is restricted by factors such as politics, export issues, incompatibility between different products, and high (though recently decreasing) prices. Snom, in partnership with GSMK CryptoPhone, has an ongoing development project to produce highly secure, encrypted telephones suitable for use with confidential services including government and military applications.
