When employees band together, good things typically happen. Close collaboration and communcation keeps enterprises productive and efficient, and Microsoft Teams provides a platform for maintaing smooth, seamless office communications. But there’s alwways a security risk when information–including voice conversations–are exchanged.
Boosting Security for Microsoft Teams
Even as more enterprises are turning to VoIP, unified communications solutions and cloud-based services to improve worker collaboration and productivity, a recent Oracle survey, “Enterprise Networks in Transition: Taming Chaos” shows that IT leaders cite security, fraud and complexity due to channel proliferation as top concerns. In an effort to boost security of voice and data shared via Microsoft Office 365, Oracle and Microsoft have joined forces with the certification of Oracle Enterprise Session Border Controllers (E-SBCs) for use with Direct Routing in Microsoft Teams. Together the companies are delivering a safe, fully integrated, real-time voice experience for the many Office 365 customers who use Teams to foster collaboration.
Securing Voice Network Edge
“Oracle’s presence in Fortune 1000 companies worldwide as a leading provider of communications solutions makes them a great choice to help secure the voice network edge for Microsoft Teams,” says Nikolay Muravlyannikov, principal program manager, Microsoft. “Both companies are committed to working together to offer customers a safe and robust collaboration and communications experience.”
“Oracle’s deep expertise in securing communication solutions adds a layer of trusted network protection for enterprises deploying Microsoft Teams,” adds Doug Suriano, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Communications.
Fostering Confident Communications and Collaboration
“Today’s digital economy requires workers to collaborate and communicate confidently, intelligently and efficiently in a safe environment to improve both individual and team performance, project execution and business operations,” says Diane Myers, senior research director, IHS Markit. “With smarter and highly secure real-time collaboration tools in place, enterprises can expect to see not only richer engagement, but also enhanced productivity and innovation.”
