December 5, 2014, New York, NY – Clone Systems and Carousel Industries, leaders in unified communications security, announced they have extended their SmartPoint Guard managed services offering powered by Clone Systems to include voice and video data protection. According to Clone Systems, attacks to UC networks can cost up to $4 billion a year. This includes the actual cost of the hack, as well as, loss of productivity to fix the vulnerability on the system.
To mitigate and eliminate voice and video data breaches, companies need to consistently monitor voice activity on their networks. By enrolling in the SmartPoint Guard program, powered by Clone Systems, companies can access a suite of proven network security services that consistently monitor and detect for malicious activity, while preventing intrusions and improving compliance for enterprise customers. SmartPoint Guard consists of Clone System’s proprietary monitoring and security solutions, coupled with Carousel’s unrivalled integration experience and managed services.
With the broad adoption of unified communications technologies, enterprises have become increasingly decentralized, with employees and executive staff often working from remote locations. As a result, companies have become more dependent on live streaming, teleconferencing and videoconferencing for meetings, as employees connect to the network using an increasing variety of mobile devices. This massive increase in voice and video data has created an unprecedented opportunity for hackers, who can more easily access this information since it is typically running on the same corporate data network.
“When people make phone calls, they are often communicating about sensitive topics and sometimes sharing financial information such as credit card data,” said Richard Daw, COO at Clone Systems. “If someone is listening in on that network, that data is compromised. As a top integrator, Carousel routinely speaks with its customers about security and is very aware of this threat. The enhanced SmartPoint Guard program alleviates these concerns and provides a structured, proven approach to preventing potentially millions of dollars of lost data.”
