Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is one of the most reliable, cost-effective business phone solutions you can have for your company. However, with more and more people being concerned about their privacy than ever, we understand you may be curious about your VoIP conversations. Fortunately, America’s Phone Guys is here to put your mind at ease. We’ll discuss how to help secure your VoIP phone system.
Use SaaS for VoIP Calls
Instead of installing and maintaining your own VoIP infrastructure, consider using a pure hosted solution with America’s Phone Guys where we’ll always ensure your system is current and operational.
Use a Router with a Firewall
If your router has a firewall, you’ll want to enable it. This will help block any suspicious activity from entering your communications interface. All firewalls won’t recognize VoIP, so you’ll want to ensure your firewall works with your VoIP system, which we can help you with.
Regularly Update Software
One way to be less concerned about your privacy with VoIP is to regularly update your VoIP system’s software and ensure security provisions are inside the network. If your software is vulnerable, hackers can easily open your network. We recommend firmware be updated every quarter. For our clients on pure-hosted VoIP, we handle that for you each time an update becomes available.
Use Data Encryption
It’s important to work with a provider that encrypts your information to ensure no one intercepts it and exploits it. Nearly every reputable site encrypts their data. Take a look at your URL bar right now. If you see a lock at the beginning, your data is encrypted. Your VoIP communication should also be secure.
Select a Reputable VoIP Provider
Making sure your VoIP is secure takes several steps, but one important step is making sure you choose a vendor that has a strong investment in security, like America’s Phone Guys. We ensure you have great service, reliability, and security.
Our team is always there for you when you need them, and we offer emergency support for times when your systems aren’t working correctly.
