Nadahl Shocair, CEO of Snom Technology, welcomes the intensified collaboration between Snom and GSMK CryptoPhone: A more intense collaboration between our development teams allows us to offer IP telephones to our security-conscious users that are suitable for everyday use.
Bjorn Rupp, CEO of GSMK, commenting on his company's partnership with Snom, says: Collaborating with Snom over the past few years has given us the opportunity to progressively evolve this partnership of two leading players in the field.
GSMK's CryptoPhone 500 , a high-end phone that costs more than $3,000 and combines a Samsung Galaxy S3 handset with the CryptoPhone operating system, offers strong end-to-end encryption along with a specially hardened Android operating system that offers more security than other Android phones and the patented baseband firewall that can alert customers when a rogue tower has connected to their phone or turned off the mobile network's standard encryption.
But GSMK's CryptoPhone firewall aims to combat this by monitoring all connections to the phone's baseband.
