Ribbon Communications Inc. (Nasdaq: RBBN), a global leader in secure and intelligent cloud communications, today launched a suite of Unified Communications (UC) security and intelligent operations applications for its Ribbon Protect platform. Ribbon Protect provides a single view of the end to end network, critical for UC threat detection, fraud management and network operations.
Bad actors are constantly looking for the easiest path into corporate networks. The growth of SIP adoption has led to new security breaches as bad actors prey on vulnerabilities created by a poor understanding of the risks and subsequent lack of best practices to address threats and protect the real-time communications network. Some bad actors will target SIP specifically for toll fraud, but more likely this will be their point of entry for other forms of malicious activity, such as Telephony Denial of Service (T-DoS) attacks, to disrupt operations or using the UC network to exfiltrate large amounts of mission-critical data by simulating voice and video calls. SIP serves as a means to an end in these scenarios, and a complete security plan must include protection of the real time communications network.
“Corporate networks are an increasingly tempting revenue source for cyber thugs in today’s information economy,” said Kevin Riley, CTO Ribbon. “The tremendous growth of SIP adoption means that enterprises must focus on the associated vulnerabilities to address these threats. That’s where Ribbon Protect comes in.”
Ribbon offers a number of specific communication security and network operation applications that can easily be added to the Ribbon Protect software platform through a simple feature license:
