New Features Added to VoIPAlarm 2

NextAlarm announces two major new security features for its VoIPAlarm 2 IP alarm signal transmission platform. VoIPAlarm 2 is centered around the VoIPAlarm ABN adapter, an IP communicator which connects to any Contact ID compatible alarm system. Signals from the alarm system are received by VoIPAlarm over broadband Internet, and retransmitted over PSTN phone lines or IP to the central station of the alarm installer's choice. VoIPAlarm 2 is intended as a low-cost, high-reliability alternative to cellular dialers, proprietary IP communicators, and other solutions to the growing number of end users who do not have the traditional phone service required by most alarm systems.

NextAlarm Adds 10 Digit Contact ID Support to VoIPAlarm 2 announces that support for ten-digit Contact ID reporting has been added to its VoIPAlarm 2 IP alarm signal transmission platform. The addition greatly increases the viability of VoIPAlarm 2 as an alternative to existing IP-compatible alarm dialers, especially for alarm installers whose central stations require ten-digit account numbers.

VoIPAlarm requires the addition of a competitively priced VoIPAlarm adapter, which is connected to the alarm main control panel using its existing phone wiring. VoIPAlarm charges a flat monthly fee for unlimited retransmission of alarm signals to the central station of the alarm installer's choice.

VoIP Communication's Protected by Secure Computing's Sidewinder

TeleCents Communications has deployed Secure Computing Sidewinder to provide security for their traditional telecom as well as VoIP services. TeleCents required one device to protect their entire enterprise gateway, and Sidewinder's powerful, scaleable solution included all the components necessary for the secure exchange of both traditional data and VoIP calls across open networks.

TeleCents Communications recently chose to implement the SIP application to strengthen their VoIP offering. But with that implementation, potential security vulnerabilities increased dramatically, making an increased level of gateway security essential. VoIP risks are perhaps the best-kept secret on the Internet. Blinded by the promise of reduced costs and flashy features, VoIP deployments forge ahead despite millions in losses due to VoIP fraud and the growing trend of hackers using VoIP as a back door into enterprise networks. It is for these reasons that VoIP security is essential.

VoIPAlarm Receiver Allows Monitoring and Two-Way Voice over Broadband announces the release of the VoIPAlarm Receiver. The VoIPAlarm Receiver allows any alarm central station or response center to utilize NextAlarm's patent-pending Alarm Broadband Network technology for transmission and delivery of alarm signals via the Internet.

"With the vast and still growing number of homes and businesses that have switched to Voice-Over-IP phone service or digital phone lines, central stations are finding that they can no longer receive alarms reliably," said NextAlarm CEO Alex Elliot. "The new receiver uses our proven technology to solve the VoIP problem. The price, for both the central station and the end user, is very economical, right in line with why people are switching to VoIP in the first place."

Keep Your VoIP Phone Number with Phone Number Bank

RNK has expedited expansion of its recently launched Phone Number Bank service into 80 additional markets nationwide. Phone Number Bank is a solution that enables consumers to keep or “bank” their phone numbers for as long as they want. In response to questions about how consumers can maintain more ownership of their phone numbers, which prior to PNB were never really “their” numbers, Richard Koch, President and CEO of RNK Communications, states, “Until now, your phone number never really belonged to you. It was part of the phone network and was just a routing mechanism to make your land line or cell phone ring when someone called what they believed to be “your” number.

Sipera to Debut VoIP-to-Data Exploit at Black Hat USA 2007

Sipera VIPER Lab will demonstrate a VoIP exploit that allows hackers to take control and delete or steal data from a laptop running an enterprise VoIP softphone, at the Black Hat USA 2007 conference. The demonstration will also show that fully deployed, traditional data security is not adequate to protect data from a real-time, VoIP communications attack.

Sipera VIPER Lab will also review various WiFi/dual-mode phone threats as part of its "Vulnerabilities in Wi-Fi/Dual-Mode VoIP Phones" presentation, which will take place within the Voice Services Security track on August 1st at 4:45 p.m. Black Hat briefings bring together the best minds from government agencies and global corporations with the most respected independent researchers and hackers. The Black Hat invitation to present reflects both peer recognition of Sipera's leadership in VoIP and Unified Communications security, and increasing awareness of VoIP/UC vulnerabilities and exploits.
