Conquering Toll Fraud with Analytics

Telecommunications fraud loss was estimated to be a $29 billion problem in 2017, according to the Communications Fraud Control Association. Don’t be caught off-guard; when your UC infrastructure is compromised, you don’t want to be the executive who didn’t find out about it until after losses mount and your company’s reputation is tarnished.

Whether you know or not, it’s quite likely that bad actors have already tried, or are still trying, to gain access to your unified communication infrastructure so they can fraudulently exploit your resources. Or worse, your UC infrastructure is being attacked as a way to get in and inflict damage elsewhere across your enterprise. With the potential for malicious attacks via SIP and VoIP, is your current security solution capable of monitoring, detecting, and mitigating these fraudulent types of attacks?
