The line between work life and personal life is constantly being blurred, as employees strive to complete work during all hours of the day. Businesses are shying away from the traditional nine to five and moving towards more flexible work hours and more flexible work “places”. The ability to work on the go has become the standard, and more in demand. It’s become increasingly more common for companies to provide their employees with a business smartphone and here are the biggest reasons why:
Network and VoIP phone security has gone from a looming concern to a high priority for most large companies. The more sensitive data we send over the Internet and internal networks, the more risks there are associated with cyber assaults. When some of the most secure databases in the world are being attacked—those guarded carefully by leading businesses and their consultants—the question of how to implement and budget for the proper safeguards is a big one.

Voice security is important. We’ve let you know a few things that can happen when you don’t encrypt your voice. But what can you do to protect your business from fraud and corporate espionage? We’ve interviewed security experts, Yoonseo Kang , from LegitChex to give insight on ways companies can protect their business voice systems from these potential vulnerabilities.
An article by Telecom Reseller recently came out about the “Skype for Business Security Threat Assessment & Analysis” which made it clear that despite a massive effort from Skype, there are always growing security vulnerabilities. Skype has been very good at quickly patching these vulnerabilities when found, but underground organizations have gotten good at hiding these vulnerabilities to maximize their profits for as long as possible before they are found. This constant battle between beefing up security and someone nefarious finding a crack makes it more evident the importance of secure encrypted voice.
Look at your smartphone, now back to BB-8, now back back at your smartphone, now back to BB-8. Sadly, your smartphone isn’t BB-8, but in a few years it could be!

The holiday season makes us nostalgic and I can’t help but think of all my techy Christmas gifts that I’d be hoping and praying were under that Christmas tree.
