VoIPshield Security Suite Debuts

VoIPshield Systems a comprehensive set of VOIP security applications purpose-built to protect VOIP networks

LAS VEGAS -- VoIPshield Systems today announced the VoIPshield Security Suite, a comprehensive set of VoIP security applications purpose-built to protect VoIP networks. The products ship in appliance or software form, and are designed for use by enterprises, VoIP service providers, security integrators and consultants.

VoIP networks and devices are vulnerable to unique security threats and exploits, because of the real-time nature of the traffic. In addition, many new protocols and products make up the VoIP infrastructure, which traditional security products and approaches are not designed to protect.

The VoIPshield Security Suite includes:

  • VoIPaudit™ - VoIP vulnerability assessment (VVA) and penetration testing tool

  • VoIPguard™ - VoIP Intrusion Prevention System (VIPS)

  • VoIPscreen™ - VoIP Network Access Control (VNAC) system

  • VoIPblock™ - Anti-SPIT (Spam over IP Telephony) system

  • VoIPportal™ - VoIPshield Application Portal and Management Console

    Each application draws on VoIPshield’s proprietary database of VoIP-specific vulnerabilities and exploits, developed by VoIPshield Labs. The database is a collection of previously-undiscovered exploits and zero-day attacks on popular VoIP PBXs and phones, and is unique in the industry.

    The first entry in the suite, VoIPaudit 2.0, which has been in customer trials since last year, is now generally available. VoIPaudit scans an enterprise VoIP network, identifying where devices are vulnerable to attacks such as denial-of-service attacks, call eavesdropping, registration hijacking, toll fraud, and vishing (voice phishing). For each found vulnerability, VoIPaudit identifies procedures to remediate the security threat. VoIPaudit’s customers receive continual updates to the vulnerabilities database through VoIPaudit’s ActiveUpdateTM function, included in all VoIPshield’s security products. VoIPaudit supports products from the leading VoIP PBX and phone vendors, as well as all products using the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP).

    “We selected VoIPaudit based on the quality of the company’s research on VoIP vulnerabilities and unique understanding of VoIP-specific threats,” said Min Wang, Senior Manager, Public Services Technology Infrastructure Solutions, BearingPoint.
