Securing real-time communications (RTC) requires a Session Border Controller (SBC) at the network edge. SBCs are critical because they prevent attacks, manage traffic and capture critical information at the edge of your RTC network.
However, as technology models mature, a single-point SBC needs to be augmented and be part of wider security perimeter strategy. What is needed now is a multi-layered approach where RTC security and policy start at the application layer which programmatically defines RTC flows for the network fabric. In this webinar, Sonus will discuss the requirements for before, during and after a security breach and will show how applications such as SBCs and policy engines address the evolving multi-layered security protection required in new cloud-based services for real-time communications.
