UC a Ticking Time Bomb?

Tony Bradley Tony Bradley Profile: Tony Bradley

Security is generally an afterthought in I.T.. It gets a fair amount of press, especially when there are legal and industry compliance requirements. But, when a new technology gets hot it seems like everyone jumps on the bandwagon and starts implementing it and nobody stops to consider the security implications until much later- often after the first big victim makes headlines and perhaps not until the legal and industry compliance mandates catch up and require some level of security. According to a report from TechWeb’s LightReading.com, security looms as a serious issue for many UC implementations. This brief report suggests that one of the problems is that the UC technology has the security functions available, but they are not implemented or properly utilized by the users.
