Segment Spotlight: SIP Security – Mitigating Threats to Central Offices and Mobile Workers
Author: Rosa Lear, Director of Marketing at Edgewater
We have good news and bad news for business. The good news is that, by adopting SIP services such as UCaaS (unified communications as a service) and SIP trunking, you can reduce costs and ensure greater business continuity for your organization in the BYOD era. The bad news is that these methods open you up to a number of serious threats, including toll fraud and network attacks on mobile devices, for which the traditional firewall is powerless to prevent or mitigate.
But wait, there’s more good news! In an upcoming webinar, we’re going to show you how to ensure seamless and secure network access for all employees, regardless of whether they are on-site or working remotely.
On Thursday, April 16th at 12:00 p.m. EST, Edgewater Networks will be co-hosting a live webinar, SIP Security: Mitigating Threats to Central Offices and Mobile Workers, in association with Infonetics Research. This webinar will explore how your company can mitigate security vulnerabilities both in your office and remote workplaces. If you’re a service provider or an enterprise that’s interested in security options for business SIP services, the media and financial analysts, then this is a webinar you will not want to miss.
The webinar will feature the opinions of Diane Myers (Principal Analyst, VoIP, UC and IMS at Infonetics Research), John Macario (VP of Marketing at Edgewater Networks), and Monear Jalal (VP of Product Management at Edgewater Networks) and will be moderated by JoAnne Emery (Event Director at Infonetics Research).
During the webinar, Diane and John will discuss:
- The types of security vulnerabilities: While using a SIP service there are a number of security breaches that can occur. Which ones should your company be prepared for?
- How to defend your network: Once you have established the types of vulnerabilities that can occur, how can your organization best prepare to defend itself?
- Identifying the attack: It’s critical to detect a SIP attack during its early stages. How can your company spot them before substantial damage has been done?
- Extending the security blanket: You have secured the network within your central office, but how can you also secure mobile and remote servers?
After an in-depth discussion and exploration of each of these topics, the floor will be opened for a Q&A. Here the audience will be given the opportunity to interact with these knowledgeable speakers, and address their core questions and concerns regarding SIP security. We hope you join us!
