Cloud Telephony Cloud Security

It’s understandable that you might be wondering how Cloud telephony can be safer than its landline counterparts. Since landlines have more physical equipment, they appear more secure than the cloud with their technology that’s difficult for the average Joe to understand. And with cyber-crime on the rise, it makes sense to be cautious.

However, as experts in cloud telephony, we can assure you that VoIP phone systems are just as safe as a traditional set of landline phones.

The reluctance largely centres around concerns about data security. Some believe that sticking to traditional data servers minimises the risk of data breaches. But this simply isn’t true. Data stored in the cloud is nearly always stored in an encrypted form that would need to be cracked before an intruder could read the information. In addition, there are relatively simple ways users can boost their own data’s security beyond what’s built into systems they use.

It’s important to be aware of any potential security risks ahead of time and know how you can prevent them

Phishing, fraud, intercepted calls, spoofing and more are all typical security threats with Cloud telephony but can be easily prevented with the right security in place.

With cloud telephone systems, security is handled by the provider who you pay a monthly service fee to host the equipment for you. This means the maintenance and security responsibilities are put into the hands of trained, dedicated professionals who specialise in areas that your IT department might not.

In addition to the added security they build around data, ‘cloud’ based phone systems enable numerous platforms of communication in one central location. Faxes can be sent without a dedicated connection by backing up each extension with its own separate, unique fax number. In many instances, faxes can even be sent directly to smartphones and tablets.

Choosing a cloud solution gives you and your business more security than a traditional phone system can. As a provider of cloud telephone systems, we are dedicated to running a secure service, so you don’t have to. There are so many benefits and features of cloud-based phones, there’s no reason not to make the switch.
