Unified communications (UC) presents unique security challenges because it brings together disparate technologies. A UC business phone system combines VoIP, video, chat, email and presence together into one unified messaging system. As the technology has become more complex and more accessible from the public Internet, the security threat has increased. In many ways it is easier than ever to attack business communications. Companies must be diligent to protect their communications as they are vital to business operations.
While large businesses can often dedicate substantial resources toward securing their communications, those in the SMB space need solutions that are both effective and simple to manage security. Despite being in a niche field, securing UC as an SMB follows many of the same security best practices that are effective in the enterprise for a variety of technologies. In this slideshow, Digium shares seven best practices that can help SMBs keep communications flowing.
