Stolen Voices - The Challenge of Securing VoIP
by John Porter - Marketing Director, Eicon Networks Ltd. - Monday, 4 April 2005.
Though securing VoIP calls brings with it a set of new and often unique challenges, businesses should give as much serious consideration to securing their voice traffic as they do to their data today. Voice traffic will always account for a considerable portion of a business’ communication, and as systems transfer from the traditional PBX to the Internet voice will increasingly become an attractive commodity for interception by third parties. Whether malicious in the form of eavesdroppers and spoofers or simply distracting in the shape of unwanted content such as voice spam, the damage to a business whether financially or to its reputation could be devastating, so now is the time to be aware and seek a proactive solution – don’t let them steal your voice.
