Philadelphia, PA – January 7, 2020 - bvoip, the MSP Communications Platform, is excited to announce the release of Barricade 2.0, a VoIP security solution for MSPs.
The inherent problem with the typical design of Cloud Communication Platforms or Phone Systems is the balance between usability and security. Most VoIP / UCaaS / and Cloud Telephony solutions open themselves up to the world so that users can login from any location including mobile devices which creates end user convenience. The problem with this approach is it leaves the attack surface open for users to have their accounts compromised via a growing number of hacking approaches over time from practically any country.
Last May, bvoip launched Barricade. Barricade is a combination of a layer 2 firewall along dynamic account-based authentication apps for iOS, Android, Windows, Mac, and Linux. These apps allow remote workers, mobile users, and road warriors to still have the flexibility and usability of the platform from anywhere while also shutting the “front door” to the rest of the world which dramatically reduces the attack surface to the VoIP accounts and systems.
in the Barricade 2.0 release, we made the following changes:
- New interface to make the partner experience easier with firewall groups and rule creation
- Improved granular security settings for standard and custom rules
- Added baseline security protocols for DDoS and SSH attacks by default
- Several bug fixes
“Our MSP Partners don't need to look much further than the local news broadcast to see that security is major focal point. bvoip is doubling down on our security efforts in 2020 and this is the first of many changes that will be rolled out as part of our offering.” – George Bardissi, CEO, bvoip.
Barricade is now available to all bvoip partners starting immediately and is now an included option with no additional cost.
