Protection against a communication port or relay opening, even for a few seconds. TDoS is a severe attack preventing subscribers from accessing the network and effectively shutting down the service.
Fortify weak authentication at a customer endpoint before it is exploited for toll fraud. Billing and call management systems become compromised, UCTM prevents shielding the attack from detection for hours or days so the attacker can’t steal expensive international calling services.
Harden media or signaling streams for authorized-only use to wall-off savvy network attackers and access confidential information contained in voice mail, customer directories, or other databases used to store subscriber information. Injection is also used by cyber attackers to eavesdrop on VoIP calls.
UC Cloud operators must implement comprehensive and manageable security policies across all cyber threat models including: access control, threat analysis, and disaster recovery planning. These layers coupled with authentication schemes, password protections, and encryption requirements will aid in protection, but are far from comprehensive.
Cloud Providers use basic security policies to strengthen VoIP provider defenses. They require the added ability to monitor, enhance, and enforce security protections on a 7×24 basis.
