Survey: SMBs Worry About Security Of IP Telephony

Many small and medium businesses are leery of the security of IP telephony systems, and hence favor traditional telephony systems, according to a recent poll.

A survey of small and medium businesses has found that many are leery of the security of IP telephony systems and favor traditional telephony systems.

However, 31 percent of the SMBs polled expect to have greater confidence in IP telephony systems in the next 12 months. Conducted for the Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA), the survey results were released Wednesday.

CompTIA said some 300 SMBs with 20-500 employees were interviewed and only 48 percent of them trust IP telephony security today while 76 percent said they trust the security of traditional service providers.

John Venator, the trade association’s president and chief executive officer, noted in a statement that the survey indicates product vendors and solutions providers with security expertise can gain competitive advantage with SMB customers.
