Humbug Integrates Fraud Prevention, Detection & Analytics Into Elastix Open Source Project

RAMAT HASHARON, ISRAEL--(Marketwire - Aug 23, 2011) - Humbug Telecom Labs today announced the integration of Humbug carrier-class analytics, fraud detection and prevention into the Elastix open source project.

Elastix, created and under constant development by PaloSanto Solutions, is an open source unified communications server software that brings together IP PBX, email, instant messaging, faxing and collaboration functionality.

"With Humbug Analytics, Elastix users can have detailed traffic reports and real time fraud alerts," says Edgar Landivar, CEO of Elastix. "It is a very handy tool that is currently being used by IP PBX administrators around the globe; many of them have downloaded it free from our Elastix MarketPlace."

"The sheer numbers of open source telephony developers and resources available to these communities make phone systems an easy target for hackers and phreakers," said Yaniv Rofé, CEO of Humbug Telecom Labs. "Open source phone systems are typically used at smaller businesses that don't realize that they eventually will be targeted. No phone system, particularly those that integrate other forms of communication should be left unprotected. Every business will learn this over the next few years. Hopefully it won't be learned the hard way."
