Unify Delivers Highly Secure Solutions Resilient Against Malicious Cyber Attacks


OpenScape Enterprise certified by Miercom as secure; reinforces Unify’s commitment to security

Unify, a leading communications software and services firm, and Miercom, a leading, independent security product test center, announced today that Unify’s OpenScape Voice, OpenScape Branch, and OpenScape Session Border Controller have all been certified secure by Miercom for their resiliency against the pressure of malicious cyber attacks.

For the certification, Miercom ran more than 10 million attack tests designed to seek out any vulnerabilities in OpenScape Enterprise from some of today’s most advanced cyber threats.

“The results on a product-by-product basis were phenomenal,” said Robert Smithers, Chief Executive Officer of Miercom. “In particular, OpenScape Voice V8 proved impervious by successfully thwarting more than 10 million advanced cyber attacks and vulnerability scans.”

The latest version of OpenScape Voice, OpenScape Branch, and OpenScape Session Border Controller underwent a bombardment of attacks from Miercom security professionals. All three products achieved Miercom certification.

“Our products are designed with security at the core, providing our customers with the reassurance they need to engage in secure communications,” said Peter Kurpick, head of Unify’s global product organization. “With today’s remote teams and virtual workers, work happens anytime, anywhere. Ensuring these anywhere workers can seamlessly and securely collaborate is key. Miercom’s certification solidifies our commitment developing products with the highest standards of security built-in.”

The financial and reputational costs of a security breach can be extraordinary. According to the Global Corporate IT Security Risks: 2013 (Kaspersky Lab), a successful targeted cyber attack on a large company can cost $2.4 million direct financial losses and additional costs.

“Cyber threats are becoming more malicious as today’s security landscape continues to evolve, and security is on every IT directors mind,” Kurpick said. “We have the highest commitment to protecting our customer’s networks, ensuring that the applications being added to their data centers are secure.”

Key findings from Miercom security testing of OpenScape Voice are summarized below:

  • OpenScape Voice V8 was tested against 10,800,231 attacks and protocol mutations launched by state-of-the-art security tools and Miercom scripts
  • The management interface, implemented via the Apache web server, fully blocked all Denial of Service (DoS) attacks (notably Slowloris and THC SSL DoS)
  • An attacker is not able to circumvent the Intrusion Detection System by using a slow rate of traffic to achieve a false login via a brute-force attack
  • Exhibited no vulnerability to the Heartbleed exploit as well as a wide variety of SIP penetration attacks
  • Maintained normal operation and call functionality while blocking attempted exploits
  • High-availability configuration worked, providing maximum uptime
