Kudelski IoT Validates Security of Yealink's Flagship, Zoom-enabled Smart Video Phone

26/01/2022

Kudelski IoT Security Labs employs decades of hardware and software testing expertise

to certifiy the security of the Yealink VP59, ensuring customers that their communications

are private and secure.

Cheseaux-sur-Lausanne, Switzerland, Phoenix (AZ), USA and Xiamen, China - January 26, 2022 - Kudelski IoT, a division of the Kudelski Group (SIX: KUD.S), the world leader in digital security and IoT solutions, and Yealink (Stock Code: 300628), a leading global unified communications (UC) provider, announced that Kudelski IoT Security Labs successfully completed advanced security testing of Yealink VP59, the company's flagship smart video phone, enabling Yealink to get the product officially certified as a Zoom Phone Appliance, Yealink VP59 provides Zoom Phone and Meetings capabilities, enabling users to collaborate effortlessly and securely with premium video, audio, and content sharing features.

With the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic and the massive shift toward a distributed workforce and video conferencing platforms, large amounts of confidential and proprietary information are now being shared by corporations, schools and government entities online. Their popularity has also created a boon for device manufacturers like Yealink who are integrating popular services like Zoom into their hardware, but this also creates potential new security gaps that platform providers want to prevent.

Kudelski IoT helps companies like Yealink evaluate the security of their new products, giving them the expert security advice and documentation they need to pass the certification requirements of major video collaboration platform providers. This ensures that user privacy, the manufacturers' reputation and the platform provider's integrity are all protected.

Ensuring the security of our unified communications solutions is essential to achieving platform certification for services like Zoom so we can offer their rich collaboration features as part of our innovative products, said Alvin Liao, Vice President of Products at Yealink. Security is a top priority for Yealink and successfully achieving Zoom certification was critical to our success. Kudelski IoT's 30 years of experience in end-to-end security gave us the confirmation we needed that our products are engineered for a high level of security and that our customers can communicate freely and privately using our advanced UC technologies.

When working with device manufacturers integrating popular communication platform like Zoom, Kudelski IoT evaluates the hardening of the device against hacking as well as the security of the device's software stack, thereby preventing both local and remote attacks. This ensures the device is safe to connect to corporate, government and home networks. In addition, Kudelski verifies the security of the device's firmware update mechanism (FOTA) in order to ensure it remains secure throughout its entire lifecycle.

Protection of confidential online video and voice communications requires both the platform and any device connecting to that platform to be secure, said Joel Conus, VP of Kudelski IoT Security Labs. Our work evaluating devices like the VP59 ensures the security and integrity of the total end-to-end solution, giving all participants in the value chain confidence that they are offering the most secure products and services possible.

Any consumer or B2B hardware company seeking security design, evaluation or certification can work with Kudelski IoT to improve their security posture and ensure their long-term success.
