CIS Secure Computing Receives Industry-First Class A TSG Approval for Cisco 8831 Conference Phone

DULLES, Va., May 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- CIS Secure Computing, Inc., is pleased to announce an industry-first Class A TSG type acceptance of a modified Cisco 8831 conference phone (model DTD-8831-02). Tested for compliance and approved by the National Telecommunications Security Working Group (NTSWG), the CIS modified Cisco 8831 VoIP conference phone also has the distinction of Class B type acceptance (model DTD-8831-01).

Defined by the Committee on National Security Systems (CNSS), the intent of the NTSWG type-acceptance program is for all telephones used in sensitive discussion areas to be physically incapable of producing any microphonic audio on any wires leaving the instrument while it is in the idle state. Any unmodified VoIP telephone can present eavesdropping vulnerabilities inherent in their Ethernet capabilities. "While defined by U.S. Government security experts, they are not limited to the government in their use," said John Turner


Class A approval is significant because the device is not dependent on other equipment for microphonic security. Class B equipment meets the same testing criteria as Class A equipment with the exception of testing in the powered off state. The powered off test, for Class A Type acceptance, is one of the most difficult to pass. "CIS has developed technology that allows our modified Cisco 8831 VoIP conference phone to pass the very stringent TSG Class A requirements using standard copper Ethernet interfaces and infrastructures." Turner said.  The company has U.S. and international patents pending on its TSG technologies.

CIS ships VoIP telephones modified to meet additional security requirements primarily for government and the Prime contracting community.  CIS is the worldwide market leader in units shipped and product diversity.

Located in Dulles, Virginia, CIS Secure Computing/CIS Labs, Inc. is a leading provider TEMPEST, TSG, and modified COTS solutions for the U.S. Government and other entities. CIS Secure Computing is an ISO 9001 certified manufacturer and CIS Labs is an NSA Certified TEMPEST Manufacturer and Test facility.
