    Wireless VoIP Security

    Protective strategies implemented by a company or enterprise that uses wireless Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology for business communications. Utilized to defend business-critical voice and data transmissions from being interrupted or degraded by potential network attacks.

    Many organizations utilize Wireless VoIP, or voice communications over a wireless network or Internet connection, for the convenience it provides. With the majority of business practices already conducted over networks, it makes sense that companies would use that network to transmit business-critical information via voice as well. Along with traffic acceleration, scalable call capacity and saving costs, VoIP has many benefits, but without proper security measures in place to protect those voice transmissions, the system remains vulnerable to attacks. Wireless VoIP security works to protect a company's network voice communications by preventing attacks before they happen and, in the event that an attack happens, being able to detect it and defend the network. If VoIP communications become compromised, voice quality can degrade, making a user's voice unintelligible and the system useless. Protecting a business's IT infrastructure from threats such as Denial of Service (DoS) and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks is crucial to maintaining a working, efficient communication system.
