Unified Policy Enforcement
Here´s the simple truth. Enterprise voice networks have always been difficult to secure and manage due to the longstanding lack of interoperability between equipment from different PBX vendors, as well as between various generational models within a single vendor product line. This lack of centralized visibility and control over enterprise voice networks is coupled with a dearth of security and central policy enforcement capabilities across voice environments. And unified policy enforcement becomes increasingly difficult the more distributed and heterogeneous (supported by multiple PBX types) an enterprise network becomes. Each separate PBX vendor or switch type deployment creates distinct “islands” of voice within the enterprise that don´t interoperate with other voice islands from other vendor or product line deployments, nor with any third-party point solution devices in the voice network. The result is a fragmented network of switches and devices with no means to obtain truly centralized voice intelligence, monitoring and unified policy enforcement across the enterprise.
But Unified Communications will take care of this, correct? No. Despite UC´s emphasis on the word “unified,” UC deployments fragment the network even further, by adding yet another distinct island of voice. UC deployments from different vendors don´t interoperate and probably never will. At the same time, many UC offerings from the largest and most prominent switch vendors don´t provide central management, intelligence and unified policy control across the various switches and devices packaged, marketed, and sold as a single UC offering. In other words, limited interoperability and unified policy enforcement capabilities are provided with many single vendor UC offerings.
The SecureLogix® ETM® System truly unifies voice intelligence, security and policy enforcement across the enterprise. The system is PBX vendor independent and supports analog, digital, and VoIP carrier trunking. Unified Communications Policy Management™ capabilities allow the creation and enforcement of consistent UC security, reporting, performance monitoring and content recording policies across the enterprise from one management interface, irrespective of your network´s mix of TDM or VoIP switch types and multi-vendor UC devices and endpoints. We can help you unify, secure, optimize and better leverage your unified communications network to lower expenses, strengthen compliance, and enhance your business operations.
