Vulnerability Assessment Solution for Voice-Over-IP Introduced by VoIPshield Systems, Enterprises and Service Providers Now Have the Power to Secure Converged Networks at the Systems Level

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 26, 2005) - Internet Telephony Conference and Expo - VoIPshield Systems Inc, a leading company offering products to secure voice communications on IP networks, today announced VoIPaudit, a vulnerability assessment solution built specifically for Voice-over-IP (VoIP). VoIPaudit enables organizations to automatically identify and eliminate possible VoIP-specific attacks before they impact IP telephone services.

Security has emerged as one of the biggest barriers to VoIP deployments and analysts have projected that the VoIP security market will reach more than $2.9 billion by 2008. The push for VoIP-specific security solutions comes as service providers, enterprises, and security consultants are faced with addressing not only the real-time nature of voice communications, but a number of new types of attacks such as voice spam and call hijacking.

"Ours is the first security solution which can not only address the complexity of voice deployments, but secure the VoIP network at the systems level," Dr.C.Paul Slaby, co-founder and CEO of VoIPshield Systems. "VoIPaudit is designed to meet the unique requirements of enterprises and service providers deploying VoIP. Voice communications are critical and VoIPaudit offers an unprecedented level of intelligence and security assessment for all the equipment and devices in the VoIP network."

By using VoIPaudit to identify and eliminate possible attacks, organizations are able to realize cost efficiencies by eliminating the need for time-consuming manual scans. VoIPaudit Beta customers, Cinnabar Networks and MKC Networks have been able to identify security issues and take corrective actions before voice systems are impacted. For security consultants, VoIPaudit offers an opportunity to provide clients with an automated assessment and analysis of VoIP networks instead of a manual inspection, and to generate new revenue by delivering VoIP security audits.

VoIPaudit is based on a continuously updated threats database, developed by VoIPshield's Security Research Team, which is exclusively dedicated to the monitoring, researching and remediating of VoIP security vulnerabilities.
