Transport Layer Security (TLS) provides security and privacy
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. – October 29th, 2019 – USA Digital announces today that it is expanding its capabilities to offer TLS encryption across all of its voice services platforms. Credible threats to security and privacy result from hackers obtaining private information through phone calls delivered via Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP). TLS is a highly effective countermeasure to these threats.
The concept of TLS was brought forward by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) to create secure communications transmissions over the Internet. Its initial widespread use was to secure email and other forms of messaging over the Internet. With the proliferation of VoIP as a telecommunications solution, TLS has been adopted as a viable security solution.
“We provide data and voice solutions for a large number of customers in the financial and healthcare industry,” said Roy Martindale, CTO at USAD. “While we believe all businesses can benefit from the deployment of TLS, security and privacy protection for any industry communicating personal data is paramount. We are proud to have made the investment to offer TLS encryption.”
