Small businesses are increasingly moving from traditional telephones to Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) to save on costs. While VoIP offers many benefits, an unsecure system can leave your business vulnerable to a new kind of attack called telephony denial-of-service (TDoS). In this blog post, we will discuss what TDoS is and how you can protect your VoIP system and your business against it.
Most businesses are familiar with denial-of-service (DoS) attacks, or attacks that cripple an IT network, system, or machine to deny access to intended users. Not many businesses know, however, that Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) systems can be a DoS attack target too.
VoIP has become the ultimate communication tool for enterprises, but it has also become another vulnerability that hackers exploit. Because voice is essentially transferred as data, the risk of digitized messages being intercepted and heard by unauthorized ears increases.
