Unified Communications Security
Unified communications (UC) presents unique security challenges because it brings together disparate technologies. A UC system can combine VoIP, video, chat, email and presence together into one unified messaging system and, as technology has become more complex and more accessible from the public Internet, security threats have also increased. This is particularly true with the introduction of UC federation that extends communications beyond corporate walls.
This whitepaper examines several types of attacks specifically designed to disrupt UC platforms and provides recommendations to counteract increasingly frequent and damaging security threats.
