October 18, 2010 — GSMK CryptoPhone, a leader in mobile voice and message security, and Voice-over-IP (VoIP) telephone manufacturer, snom, today announced the launch of a joint secure desktop phone offering, IP 19. The secure telephones will combine snom’s VoIP telephone hardware with GSMK’s voice and message encryption firmware. The product will be marketed and sold by both snom and GSMK via their respective distribution networks.

Commenting on the announcement, Bjoern Rupp, CEO of GSMK CryptoPhone said, “The IP 19 is a universal, easy-to-use IP-based desktop phone that allows secure end-to-end encrypted calls. Users are protected by military grade security and can communicate over any IP network including fixed-line and satellite, ensuring they are safeguarded against the threat of malicious eavesdroppers.”

The scope of the partnership between GSMK CryptoPhone and snom includes R&D, marketing and sales strategy, and product support. The CryptoPhone IP 19 is fully compatible with all GSMK CryptoPhone IP mobile, satellite and fixed-line encryption products, allowing secure end-to-end encrypted calls across network borders.

Dr. Michael Knieling, executive vice president of Marketing and Sales for snom technology AG added, “Our highly interoperable, very functional desktop phones marry well with GSMK’s military level encryption to deliver seamless unified communications to corporations, without compromising sensitive information.”

In addition to the IP 19’s advanced military grade encryption technology, it has a high end, modern, easy to use interface with color touch screen display.
