Cybercriminals who gain entry through the intercom or another IP network and then paralyse processes that are critical to a business – a worst-case scenario of course, but unfortunately not at all unthinkable. It is the painful flipside of the internet of things. That is why it is so important to lock and bolt every entrance securely against external influences, even against intruders who are yet unknown. Elbo Technology, utilizing world-leader supplier Zenitel, includes this new form of robust security in its products. With the Vingtor-Stentofon portfolio, Elbo has appropriate solutions in-house for many different types of threats.

Intercom devices with segregated electronics
For unsupervised entrances in buildings, Vingtor-Stentofon has developed intercom devices with segregated electronics. The analogue part, a panel with a button, a microphone and a loudspeaker, is mounted outside on the door or gate. The IP part is situated in the inner side of the perimeter, in the secure zone. With an alarm contact for tamper protection on the network connection, an even higher security level can be achieved of course.

AlphaCom servers with Critical Communication over IP
The AlphaCom audioservers from Vingtor-Stentofon work on the basis of physically segregated networks for intercom and management, so that hackers cannot gain access to the operating system through the intercom network. Elbo considers this to be crucial in these times of far-reaching integration of IP systems, for which the servers are extremely suitable. This is particularly true because they have been designed for Critical Communication over IP: the ultimate level for VoIP. With integrated firewall, software integrity check, network monitoring and secure link layer as the guarantee for direct and secure transport of voice and data.

Encryption and authentication in accordance with TLS 1.2
Communication between server and intercom is protected against eavesdropping or forgery by means of the strict standards of Transport Layer Security 1.2. Through the encryption and authentication certificates in this protocol, TLS 1.2 creates a fully secure communication connection, end-to-end.

The intercom for challenging environments
In combination with the indestructible Turbine SIP devices and unrivalled audio and video quality, Vingtor-Stentofon is suitable for even the largest building complexes. These buildings range from care and educational institutions, through office buildings and shopping centres to bank buildings, detention centres and other forms of non-residential constructions in which the security and reliability of communications are a top priority. Ever more organizations are realising that security is only as strong as the weakest link in the chain. Fifty percent of the security is determined by the components used and the other fifty percent by the network of the security solution.
