Communications at Risk: The Security Implications of VoIP and SIP

Today's businesses often rely on Unified Communications (UC) and Real Time Communications (RTC) to run their day-to-day operations, but these applications may fly under the radar when it comes to security protection. Because we live in an IP world, with VoIP and SIP common to all types of networks, reliance on traditional internet and data networking tools for real-time communications exposes UC networks to the same types of cyberattacks that affect all data networks. More importantly, it exposes the network to the inherent vulnerabilities of SIP communications that the traditional tool sets don’t address. This webinar will examine the security implications of using VoIP and SIP, how to best protect real-time communications traffic with tools you already have as well as with new tools, and how to orchestrate protections to prevent UC security from becoming just another isolated security silo.
