While there is tremendous usefulness in new voice innovations and the industry continues to play a more prominent role in delivering business value, it is important to be aware of the security considerations of quickly growing technologies. Evaluating the security capabilities of new technologies must be at the forefront of any planning discussions as organizations introduce new software and hardware into their IT environments.
