Research and Markets has announced a report entitled VoIP Security to their offering.
The VoIP market in 2005 has been growing steadily as customers begin to accept the benefits of converging their voice, data and video networks in favor of a single infrastructure. Influential partners within both the vendor and end-user communities have, however, begun voicing their concerns over the security implications of switching to such a system.
Experts at ISSs X-force who regularly examine applications and protocols examined many of the key protocols used by VoIP systems and reported that most of them were wide open from a security perspective. The issue, according to ISS, is that VoIP systems were not designed with security in mind.
Greater maturity and the rise in reliability levels have persuaded companies to begin investing in VoIP to take advantage of the benefits that the technology brings. Nevertheless, availability is still a primary concern and vendors introducing themselves as providers of complete VoIP protection services should address availability issues.
A vendor looking to enter the VoIP security space should work closely with end-user focus groups, such as the Jericho Forum to understand & remedy their concerns. The benefit is that dissenting voices from end-users are quieted. This also gives the vendor an opportunity to impress potential clients with their knowledge of the VoIP security space.
