High-end Security Features of the GWN series Access Points

Posted by Phil Bowers, Senior Marketing Manager on Jun 19, 2017

Like any technology, WiFI has its own share of security concerns. The nature of wireless networks allows hackers or anyone with malicious intent to locate themselves close to an access point in order to infiltrate a network. According to Kasperksy, approximately 24.7% of Wi-Fi hotspots in the world do not use any encryption at all, and that does not even include the WiFi networks that are under-secured. More than 80 percent of U.S. companies have been successfully hacked, according to a Duke University/CFO Magazine Global Business Outlook Survey. Additionally, a survey by PricewaterhouseCoopers in early 2017 found that there has been a 38% increase in the instances of phishing scams and other cyber security incidents from 2015 to 2016.

Posted by Phil Bowers, Senior Marketing Manager on Jun 8, 2017

 

 

Back in 2002 when Grandstream was founded, we were one of the first companies in the world to manufacture SIP products – and one of the very first products we made were analog telephone adapters (ATAs). We now have over 15 years of expertise building SIP devices, and we have more experience building VoIP gateways and ATAs than almost any one in the world.

The internet is like a very crowded Los Angeles highway, but instead of being full of cars, it’s full of information. Due to crowding, this information needs guidance to ensure that it gets where it’s going.  This is why transmission protocols exist to make sure the information gets transported as intended.

How Secure are you with WebRTC?

Posted by Kate Clavet, Content Marketing Specialist on May 24, 2017

In my previous WebRTC post I provided an overview from a simplified, easy-to-understand perspective. But today, I thought it would be pertinent to discuss the hefty security features of WebRTC. It’s safe to say, that with data breaches, ransonware, and phishing schemes dominating the news security and protection is at front of mind. Being that WebRTC is an open-source API it’s important to highlight features that make it an attractive, but secure option.

Get more from the GDS3710 by integrating it with your Grandstream Solution

Posted by Phil Bowers, Senior Marketing Manager on May 9, 2017

Integration has become a popular buzzword within a lot of industries, especially technology. Webster’s dictionary defines the term “integrate” as “to combine one thing with another so that they become a whole,” but I think there is a better definition when it comes to technology. Integration is “to combine one thing with another so that they each become better.” The real benefit of technology integration is giving each piece the ability to do something it could not do before thanks to its ability to work with other products, services, apps, and more. Within the SIP and UC world, we are well-versed in integration. However, while we are often looking for ways to integrate our SIP communication products together, the market has overlooked the fact that SIP communication can be leveraged to offer powerful security and facility access tools. One simple product, a SIP Video Door Station like our GDS3710, allows you to easily accomplish this.

Exploring VPN

You might have seen the term VPN thrown around lately. A quick Internet search explains that VPN is a Virtual Private Network that allows the exchange of encrypted data through a VPN server. A pretty cool concept considering the browsing security issues that have been flooding our media. All this talk about data consumer protection laws, the aftermath of whistleblowers and the overall security concern in our online culture has sparked discussions about VPN.
