Three Unified Communications Security Threats
UC systems introduce new vulnerabilities that voice-only IP telephony deployments don't have.
"While UC managers focus much of their attention on determining business cases, delivering new features, and dealing with integration challenges, two often over-looked areas also require attention: security and performance management," writes NetworkWorld's Irwin Lazar.
"Implementing UC creates new threats toward enterprise voice systems, such as data loss and fraud, as well as attacks against the underlying data network resources. Until now, network managers have primarily worried about these latter threats, such as Denial of Service (DoS) attacks that disrupt not only voice, but other application services, as well," Lazar writes.
