Jabra UC Voice line with behind-the-ear wearing style
Headset solutions maker, Jabra, has released its UC Voice series of headsets designed for cost-effective communication to accommodate for the growing unified communications (UC) market.
The line features the industry’s first corded UC headset with a behind-the-ear wearing style and discreet form factor for video conferencing and portability, making it usable in numerous environments.
As a result of the transference of office communications across multiple mediums – including land lines, mobile devices, video conferencing, email and softphones, the demand for effective UC methods is high.
Jabra A/NZ managing director, Fulvio Toniotti, said, “We are seeing a burgeoning trend towards unified communications as more and more Australian’s adopt conferencing services to communicate – in fact, the conferencing market alone in this country is set to increase by more than 70 per cent by 2015.”
The UC Voice series comes in four different designs and features: clear wideband sound, a noise reduction microphone and dedicated UC voice deployments, call-control unit with quick access to answer, end, mute and volume adjustment from the headset, simple deployment, management and user adoption and a two-year global warranty.
Jabra’s UC Voice series is available through the Jabra website.
Sage increases security measures with Sage DataSecure
Taxation and accounting practice management software suite developer, Sage HandiSoft, is building on its security solutions with the release of its DataSecure service.
DataSecure, which has deployed Attix5 backup and recovery solutions, replicates and mirrors data, storing it in two locations to ensure businesses can continue functioning following data loss.
Communication between computers and the storage platform operates through Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol standard, using 1024 bit RSA key exchange, 128 Bit RC4 stream cipher and SHA-1 integrity checking. Data is stored using 448 bit Blowfish encryption in CBC mode, with backup account encryption stored in another location.
The personal data encryption key created upon registration is only accessible by the nominated user who must provide account details, password and key to decrypt any data following backup.
All data is secured automatically, with available status notifications through email.
DataSecure is best used for daily exchanges through its ‘to-the-day’ 60-day backup period. Data can be retrieved at any day during this period.
Sage DataSecure is available in numerous packages starting at $40 per month.
