VoIP - Security Reality Check

Here is a bit of a wake up call from CIO magazine, who warn us that "CIOs ready to take the plunge with VoIP need to understand that data firewalls alone won't protect them." They recommend:

  • Encypting VoIP traffic;
  • Avoid soft-phones;
  • Seperate voice and data traffic;
  • Install a VoIP firewall; and
  • (The one we often forget about) Ensure physical security.
Don't say you've not been warned!
