Military, Government, & Emergency 911 are key targets for malicious hackers.
Distributed denial-of-service -- or DDoS -- attacks are a well known threat, as it's relatively simple to flood a server or system with thousands of requests from compromised computers.
More and more hackers are, however, shutting down businesses and infrastructure by using phones. A TDoS attack (telephony denial-of-service) is a flood of malicious calls usually aimed at a contact center, a business, enterprise or government site where the phone system is critical -- like 911 emergency services or government operations. The Department of Homeland Security reports that TDoS attacks are on the rise, with critical government phone systems across the country a possible target.
SecureLogix provides unified call security and call authentication solutions to identify spoofed callers, mitigate robocalls and defeat TDoS attacks, vishing attacks and other phone-enabled threats.
