SecureLogix Corporation, a major player in enterprise voice/UC border protection and intelligence, has announced receipt of its 15th patent, EP 1415459 B1, which protects core technology in the company’s ETM (Enterprise Telephony Management) System, a voice and Unified Communications (News - Alert) network security policy enforcement and ROI intelligence solution for the enterprise.
Officials with SecureLogix said that this new patent further strengthens the ETM System’s existing patent protection in Europe.
Company officials said that SecureLogix began building an intellectual property portfolio in 1998 with the filing of its first patent application, entitled Telephony Security System.
The company subsequently augmented its initial patent application with a number of continuation and continuation-in-part patent applications.
According to company officials, SecureLogix currently owns 15 U.S. and international patents, with over 500 patent claims.
The patents, company officials said, protect inventions within one of three technology groups: telephony security, monitoring, and usage reporting; policy-based autonomous telephony encryption; and integrated telephony resource vulnerability assessment and management.
These patents are the foundation of an intellectual property portfolio protecting telecommunications security, monitoring and management technologies developed by SecureLogix for its ETM System product.
Company officials said that the ETM System provides enterprise-wide, real-time security policy enforcement, ROI intelligence, network security protection, fraud prevention, voice service performance and usage visibility, and voice/UC network access control across distributed, multi-vendor networks.
The system protects enterprise telecom and data networks from telephony-borne threats, such as telephony denial-of-service, social engineering schemes, toll fraud, service abuse, harassing calls, information theft, modem line backdoors into the corporate LAN, and other unauthorized phone traffic and usage.
The ETM System's voice usage and performance management applications significantly reduce phone bills and other voice network operational costs for the enterprise through centralized call auditing, resource utilization reporting, and performance/QoS monitoring, alerting and management. The system supports both TDM and VoIP, enabling truly unified voice policy enforcement and management.
