How to Protect Your VoIP from Hackers

Monday, April 1st, 2019

Your VoIP plays a very essential role in your business operations. It is part of what connects you to your customers and clients, and is also a tool for your employees to communicate with one another. A lot of sensitive information passes through your VoIP system, so the last thing you want is to be exposed to hackers. VoIP systems on their own are quite well protected, but there is always more you can do to guarantee its function and safety from hackers for you, your employees, and your clients. This is why you should take every precaution possible to protect your VoIP from would-be hackers, and here are a few tips on how to do just that.

Further train employees

Obviously you have already done a fantastic job training your employees when you first hired them, but there is more you can teach them when it comes to protecting your VoIP. Often problems with hackers start with employees not knowing what warning signs to look out for. To combat this, you should be training your employees for dangerous signals that may alert you to signs that your VoIP is being attacked by hackers. Employees should know what the dangers are, including spam calls and emails, as well as what information they must protect for the sake of the company.

Restrict access

Another way to further protect your VoIP is by restricting access to potential risks that could leave you exposed to hackers and the dangers they bring with them. This can easily be done by contacting your VoIP provider and asking them to install protective and restrictive software that can block threats before they happen. Advanced fraud detection software from your VoIP can detect unusual and risky calling patterns early on and alert an administrator who will be able to address the issue quickly.

Encryption

If possible, encryption should always be used to help protect your VoIP calls. Since VoIP calls are usually unencrypted as they travel through the internet, but by adding encryptions where possible, the calls can be further secured and protected. It is an additional safety precaution that you did not have before, which will help to further fend off any hackers from doing damage. By making sure your VoIP is properly encrypted, there will be less worry over the possibilities of what a hacker may do.
