To meet the needs of their growing customer base, Rodrigo and his technical team at VitalPBX selected TelcoBridges’ FreeSBC session border controller software.
“Starting with our own in-house system, we feel it is important for our customers to protect their VitalPBX systems from potential attack”, noted Rodrigo. “FreeSBC is an excellent fit for VitalPBX users”
Installed on either a stand-alone COTS server, or a virtualized server, FreeSBC is placed on the network between the Internet and the VitalPBX server(s). In this configuration, FreeSBC provides protection again SIP scanners, DOS/DDOS and other attacks.
Beyond SIP security, FreeSBC also offers other protections against un-authorized calling through black-lists and toll-fraud detection. Other useful features include load balancing (for scaling) and SIP header manipulation, helping resolve compatibility issues with IP Phones or VoIP client software.
