Jabra Engage - Secure Communications
This entry was posted on June 18, 2019.
Jabra's Engage headsets offer increased security over their wireless range which in the age of increasing threats of snooping and intrusion into business is something that anyone equipping an office with headsets needs to take into account. The Jabra Engage series of headsets have 256-bit AES encryption and 128 bit authentication as standard - enabling far higher than usual levels of security in what are some of the best headsets on the market.
Cybercrime is on the rise, and in a business environment where customer calls are evermore sensitive, making valuable conversations secure is vital. Jabra meets this challenge head-on, taking communication security to the next level with the Jabra Engage Series – the world's most secure professional wireless headsets – with security features that go above and beyond the leading Jabra Pro 9400 series, and outstripping all other headsets on the market.
Every call counts, but for some businesses and institutions the ability to make secure calls can make or break a company, safeguard the future of others, and even save lives. Whether you’re a government, the military, a financial institution, or simply a business where valuable calls are made, you need to be part of a proactive security culture.
The time to Engage is now. Today, customer privacy is rated as the number one concern (higher than data ownership, and higher than employee privacy).
The most powerful professional wireless headsets on the market are also the most secure
Taking security in wireless calls to the next level with 256-bit AES encryption and 128-bit authentication.
PATENTED PAIRING. ABSOLUTE AUTHENTICATION. ENCRYPTION EXCELLENCE.
With Jabra Engage, there is increased security of the wireless connection between the wireless headset and its base unit, and rock-solid security is provided in three steps, improving the protection of calls to a category-leading level.
The first step is a physical bonding of the base unit and headset. Jabra has patented ‘physical assisted pairing’ to increase security. The Jabra assisted pairing method occurs only when the headset is docked in the base unit, and a secret link-key is then formed when the two pair.
At the start of a call, encryption is used to set up secure authentication between the Engage headset and its base. A link is established using a secret key-link formed in the pairing (without this, the headset and base unit will not work together). This means that a “non-paired” headset cannot be used with the base unit. The authentication link is also protected by encryption. The better the encryption level, the more secure the established link.
In calls the audio signal between base unit and headset transports data, which is secured via encryption. The higher encryption level, the better the protection of data. With Jabra Engage, the encryption link is renewed every minute to make decryption more difficult.
MILITARY GRADE SECURITY
DECT security has evolved over time from the original security definition, to new enhanced definitions called step A, B, and C; each step offering an increased security over the previous step. Each new security level includes all features from a previous level. This means, for example, that Jabra Engage includes all step A, B and C features. For instance, significant features added in step A (such as early encryption derived cipher key updating at least every minute), and peer-side behaviour evaluation.
Jabra Engage Series wireless headsets go one step further, taking advantage of encryption algorithms listed in FIPS 140-2 standards required by the US military and government. This level of security goes beyond DECT Level C.
Jabra Engage utilises AES 256-bit keys for the very strongest level of encryption in a professional headset.
