Nortel has formed an alliance with SecureLogix to enable Nortel VAR’s to market and sell the SecureLogix ETM System and other security services in conjunction with Nortel’s new Voice Security Services offering. Adding to the arsenal already available to Nortel VAR’s, the SecureLogix ETM System provides a powerful voice security and management platform. Nortel customers will be able to optimize their investment in voice technologies, while protecting the voice and data networks from telephony-based attacks and abuses. Unified communications and VoIP are hot technologies that many companies have adopted or are looking at implementing soon, but few have taken the time to understand the security risks or proactively safeguard their unified communications investment. Nortel and SecureLogix are moving in the right direction by recognizing the security concerns and providing products and services to help their customers leverage the benefits of these new technologies securely.
