Many businesses today are implementing Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) phone systems in their office, to replace traditional phone lines – and for good reason. VoIP provides significant advantages, including the ability to make and receive calls from anywhere and at any time, cost savings, a more reliable signal, and more.
Popular mobile instant messaging app WhatsApp was at the center of a recent security breach which saw the information of as many as 200 million users potentially exposed to the mercy of hackers and malware. The threat, which affected the recently launched web-based version of WhatsApp, was detected by an IT security firm in Israel and patched up before news of it became public.
Switching from a traditional phone system to a VoIP one is actually easier than you might think. There isn’t much equipment necessary for installation, and training your staff doesn’t require all that much effort either. Of course, before you make the switch, you’ll need to give some thought to whether or not it will actually be of use to your company.
