According to the Computer Security Institute's CSI/FBI Computer Crime and Security Survey*, 98 percent of survey respondents use a firewall, and 97 percent use anti-virus software. Yet the number of organizations suffering from viral infections, web server breaches and Voice over IP (VoIP) attacks continues to increase, and the reported losses can be startling. This presents a fundamental question: are traditional firewalls doing any good? And if they are, why are companies still losing millions of dollars and/or losing consumers in the face of negative publicity even when they use firewalls?
VoIP brings with it new threats:
- Spoofed messages
- Call black holing
- Viruses with VoIP components
- And many more...
This webcast will focus on the fundamentals of VoIP and the related threats and security counter-measures, but it will also touch upon broader next generation application firewall technology that mitigates the problems with traditional firewalls. Voice over IP (VoIP) provides many innovations in collaboration and telephony cost reduction but also carries with it new risks to organizations and their compliance with industry regulations.
