End to end Call Encryption is your secret weapon to ultimate call security, protecting your data networks, VoIP calls and communication privacy. End to end encryption protects the data or voice messages sent through your device. The information (your conversation) is transmitted through this encryption. The conversation is decrypted only upon arrival to its destination (the person you are having a conversation with).
Should my Business Calls have End to End Encryption?
No matter how big or small your business is, phone system security is paramount. A business security system breach or a fraud issue can have detrimental effects on business revenue. It can further lead to time lost and a decline in your organisation’s reputation.
“Telecom fraud costs an estimated €10.6 billion per year.” – Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre.
Choosing a phone system for your business communications or assessing your current provider can bring about several questions. Most notably, cost, reliability, scale and so on. With many factors to consider, call encryption and VoIP security is sometimes overlooked, and as a result, can lead to an increased threat for businesses.
At Blueface, we know just how important phone call encryption and phone system security is. So check out our Encryption Checklist below and make sure you have the best security measures in place.
End to End Encryption Checklist:
Transport Layer Security (TLS)
TLS is a security protocol that works on communications and data through the internet. In general, it is most commonly used in voice over internet protocol (VoIP), messaging and email. Blueface TLS encrypts end to end SIP signalling, which helps protect from data breaches and communication attacks. Furthermore, TLS is becoming a must-have for all major websites, with browsers like Google Chrome blocking non-HTTPS websites.
Secure Real-Time Protocol (SRTP)
SRTP is an extension of RTP, with some upgraded security features. These added features include message authentication, origin authentication and confidentiality. The replay protection is one of the most prominent security features for VoIP users. Blueface offers SRTP to secure the media layer on every call you make, with TLS enabled automatically when SRTP is turned on.
ISO Certified (International Organisation for Standardisation)
In a nutshell, ISO Certification determines and certifies products, systems and service for quality assurance and efficiency. For this reason, ISO exists in most industries, ensuring the highest standards are in place by an organisation. Blueface exceeds these standards by securing all calls through our data centre network with Equinix Data Centres.
Video Conferencing Encryption
Our communication needs are growing, and nothing beats video conferencing communication for efficiency and team collaboration.
The swift move to working from home has meant businesses are now handling highly sensitive conversation, sale deals and private internal discussions that once took place in a face to face office environment.
“Criminals are taking advantage of the increased security vulnerabilities arising from remote working to steal data, generate profits and cause disruption.” – INTERPOL
The need for business security in video calling software recently became very popular. This is a result of some of the most popular video communications platforms making the headlines for all the wrong security reasons. Like all calls, video conferencing is just as susceptible to data and security breaches, so it must come with effective encryption.
Blueface delivers a fully encrypted end to end video call solution, with powerful security and access control through password protection options, ensuring your data is secure.
