BenQ Receives ISO 27001 Certification for InstaShow Wireless Presentation System

BenQ Instashow

BenQ’s InstaShow wireless presentation system just got ISO 27001 certification. ISO 27001 is an international standard that specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an information security management system within the context of an organization, thereby ensuring that data remains secure, complete and usable. After undergoing stringent reviews by the British Standards Institution (BSI), BenQ was awarded the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification on Sept. 14, 2020.

InstaShow was built to provide users with an HDMI-based collaboration solution that minimizes threats that cause information breaches and fallout. The InstaShow screen-mirroring system is entirely hardware-based, requiring no setup or drivers, which means no unauthorized or malicious software will make its way into the user’s computer.

With InstaShow, users can connect any device with an HDMI or USB-C output to wirelessly mirror content to the room’s display. It works with any OS or hardware platform, including PCs, Macs and Chromebooks, while promising absolute data security via measures such as WPA2-PSK protection with 128-bit encryption and secure handshake procedures. Furthermore, Onward Security, a leading ISO 27001 and ISO17025-certified security lab, tested the InstaShow wireless encryption system for KRACK attack vulnerability — vulnerabilities that were found in competing wireless presentation systems — and found none. Helping customers safeguard their data and privacy, the current ISO 2700 certification strengthens InstaShow’s continuous prioritization and improvement in upholding security best practices.
