While there are many options when it comes to communicating with clients, customers and employees, the telephone remains a mainstay for the majority of most businesses.
Over the years businesses have seen an increase in telephone fraud and because of this security has become a top priority for many businesses with decisions on new phone technology being heavily influenced by the security they provide.
Cloud VoIP Business phones
With the popularity of VoIP telephones which are connected to the public Internet, it has brought with a number of issues concerning their security. Many telephone system suppliers are happily enabling these types of VoIP services for clients with phones on their Internet facing networks but without a voice firewall AKA session border controller which can prove to be a great security risk.
If you are considering using you mobile phone, tablet or desktop PC as your office telephone then Cloud VoIP Business phones might be the best option for you from a security viewpoint.
With managed Cloud VoIP Business phones, this degree of security is handled by the provider who you pay a monthly service fee to host the equipment for you.
