Siemens Plays Up Security

The BrainYard - Where collaborative minds congregate.
Siemens has enhanced its OpenScale Security Services offering to bettercover critical areas around UC: business continuity, compliance, identity and privacy, threat mitigation and data security. If security is paramount for other IT applications, it should be so for unified communications, which converges a variety of corporate data and users on a single platform.Making sure users can access their communications in an emergency (or even a simple Internet outage) ensures your company can still do business even as the network, or access to it, fails. Complying with regulatory mandates is not negotiable when it comes to e-mail today; expect not just IM, but VoIP, conferencing and social networking to follow. And of course, defining approved users and profiles around access is critical, especially as companies open their UC doors to partners and customers.If you're deploying IC, are you paying enough attention to security?
