BenQ Adds More Security InstaShow WDC30

Screen Shot 2022 06 28 at 4.38.19 PMBenQ has added more security to its InstaShow WDC30, including Wi-Fi 6 encryption, ISO EAL6+ and FIPS 140-3, in order to meet the stringent security requirements of U.S. government agencies, financial institutions and other organizations with high-risk data.

Wireless meetings can contain highly sensitive and confidential data and intellectual property that can be leaked or accessed when shared via an app-, network- or USB-based wireless presentation systems. These systems can also expose the connected device and the network. BenQ’s InstaShow WDC30, however, protects data, devices and the network with robust security certification. BenQ says its network-free, secure, button-based design prevents vulnerabilities caused by network exposure, reliance on apps or software, or malicious USB inputs.

The WDC30 triple protects the wireless transmission of data from cyberattacks in three ways:

  • WPA3-encrypted Wi-Fi 6 technology: Wi-Fi 6 technology not only ensures a fast, stable connection but also the highest grade of encryption available. WPA3’s security protocols enable more robust authentication, deliver increased cryptographic strength for highly sensitive data markets and maintain the resiliency of mission-critical networks.
  • ISO EAL6 tested and certified design: The Evaluation Assurance Level (EAL) in Common Criteria ranges from EAL1 to EAL7, and EAL6+ is defined as a level that offers high-security assurance for protecting high-value assets against severe security risks. The certification, done by a third-body security party, took BenQ two years to achieve. Only EAL7 military-grade certification is higher.
  • FIPS 140-3-certified crypto module: Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) certification is required by the U.S. government and other regulated industries (e.g., financial and healthcare) that collect, store, transfer, share and disseminate sensitive data. Compliant with 140, Level 3, the WDC30 has enhanced physical security, which includes BenQ’s InstaShow chip that has no ability to communicate with or send data to devices or networks.

In addition to its security infrastructure, the InstaShow WDC30 supports wireless presentations in any shared space up to 90 feet away.
