Every year the number of PBX fraud victims increases dramatically. More and more companies are targeted by individuals who are looking to bring down or exploit the communications system. Some do it for fun and others for illicit profit, but the end result is always the same… Huge bills and down time.
The most vulnerable targets remain small-medium size businesses that are new to managing their own IP PBX system. They either don’t have the IT experience and staff to properly secure and maintain the network, or they’re unaware of the risks altogether having recently switched from a landline system. Whatever the reason, many networks are consistently left unprotected. By the time most companies realize that something is wrong with their phone expenses, it’s too late - the network security has been compromised.
