ANT Telecom has added VoipSec’s cloud-based voice security solution, EasySBC, to its SIP trunk offering, allowing customers to deploy secure SIP without the need for significant upfront costs for security hardware. The company also becomes VoipSec’s first reseller of EasySBC in the UK.
With VoipSec, provider of cloud-based Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) security solutions, ANT Telecom is able to provide a total solution that packages EasySBC within its SIP trunk deployments. EasySBC is designed as an essential layer of voice security to protect businesses against attacks including call-jacking, telephony denial-of-service and toll fraud.
Prior to its partnership with VoipSec, ANT Telecom faced the challenge of selling SBC hardware with a significant upfront cost that often negated the ROI of SIP trunking. “With reports that ISDN is going to be phased out by 2025, over the next decade, there’s going to be a mass migration towards SIP,” Paul Smith, Managing Director, ANT Telecom comments. “Whilst we have been determined to offer a full SIP trunk package including security, the additional hardware costs proved difficult for many organisations, particularly small and medium sized companies that didn’t have the budget. As VoipSec is a software only service, we’re able to simply add on the security in line with our existing commercial model, giving us a unique advantage and differentiator in the market.”
Smith continues: “We’re really impressed with VoipSec’s virtual SBC. It’s a good fit for today’s technology and also appeals to the IT decision makers because it is cloud-based, under their remit and eliminates worry about additional hardware on the network and power supplies failing. In addition, VoipSec has developed the product to make the whole process and product simple to deploy and use whilst keeping costs at a minimum and importantly without sacrificing quality.”
Paul German, CEO, VoipSec comments: “ANT Telecom faced the same issue that all SIP trunk resellers have, which is to either move forward and sell non-secure SIP trunks or continue to implement hardware-based SBC which impacted on the take up of SIP. Our solution is created to fit easily into a reseller’s existing proposition and ultimately support their sales and business growth by ensuring customers experience the cost benefits of SIP without exposing themselves to unnecessary risk.”
ANT Telecom has tested the VoipSec solution on its in-house system and customer site and the total SIP solution is now available through a monthly rental model.
