The Importance of VoIP Security
Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) phone systems are emerging in organizations of all sizes. However, what about securing these internet based systems that are susceptible to malicious attacks? What types of malicious attacks are VoIP systems susceptible to?
TYPES OF VOIP SECURITY ATTACKS:
Interception of calls
Denial of Service Attacks
Theft of Service
Exfiltration of data via media session
Malware embedded in signaling
It is important to consider how you can reduce risk to protect your organization from these types of security risks targeting your VoIP system.
HOW CAN YOU PREVENT THIS?
Set up a firewall that will act as a barrier and route the incoming and outgoing traffic appropriately.
Data encryption protects the confidential information that will be sent over the IP network and makes it significantly harder for a cyber thief to accurately interpret your data.
Network firewalls and data encryption protocols work hand-in-hand as part of a layered security approach to reduce the risk of security breaches, service interruptions and the downtime that follows from being attacked.
