VoIP security: hot or not?
[Eric B. Parizo, News Editor]
eparizo@techtarget.com

Are you concerned about VoIP security? Are you still in the process
of getting your system off the ground and have more pressing
concerns, or do government regulations require that communications be
logged and secured at all times?

If that's the case in your organization, take note that traditional
security measures aren't designed to secure SIP-based VoIP calls,
meaning that VoIP-specific security measures -- including a VoIP
firewall -- may be in order. Check out the link below and see if your
team needs what a VoIP firewall can provide, and be sure to visit our
security tools page for more information on keeping your VoIP system
safe.

Have a great week!
