Protect Your Voice Over IP Phone System

February 9, 2009

I know many small businesses that are using VOIP.

But don’t forget that the IP part of VOIP stands for Internet Protocol

Yup – that same Internet stuff that you constantly read about viruses, hackers, and other malware.

As a small to medium business – do not forget that you cannot just install a Voice Over IP System without ensuring that you are properly protecting it.

Because like anything else on the Internet it can be hacked.

Try this note from SmallBizTechnology;

A SMALL business has been landed with a $120,000 phone bill after criminals hacked into its internet phone system and used it to make 11,000 international calls in just 46 hours.

I really don’t think that you want that happening to you!
