HOT VoIP In Israel
eWeek Says 2004 Explosive for VoIP

Are VoIP Security Fears Overblown

A ZD Net reporter goes fishing about VoIP security and after talking to experts comes back with only his rod, reel and a net.

Right now the evidence would indicate that the major carriers are experienced enough to deal with threats to their networks from the core. The issue is how are they handling the intrusion from the edge, where the Telephone Adaptors and SoftPhones are based?

I see this story as a positioning play by companies like McAfee and Symantec that will lead to the development of VoIP security software for the desktop and laptop.

Om calls it the Fear Factor. I say, FUD is FUD and security companies love to spread that so they can create a market.
