NetClarity has announced a free vulnerability testing program for Voice-Over-IP (VoIP) equipment providers. The Audit My VoIP program includes scans all types of equipment, from Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Gateways to IP-enabled telephones, for Common Vulnerability and Exposures, the systemic cause of over 90 percent of all network security breaches.
NetClarity highly recommends that large VoIP equipment providers take advantage of this program by sending their products to be tested and approved in accordance with MITRE standards. Hardening their products before they are shipped will help enterprise customers rest assured that they are deploying more secure and stable VoIP equipment.
“Enterprise VoIP equipment is particularly susceptible to being maliciously exploited, which can lead to down-time and lost revenue,” says Gary Miliefsky, founder and chief technology officer of NetClarity.
“I encourage all VoIP equipment providers to have their products audited for CVEs. Our free program is the first step to enabling end-user organizations to preemptively, proactively protect their critical voice networks against the kind of exposures that could leave them susceptible to poor call quality, denial of service, breaches of privacy, integrity and availability.”
