Egged Addresses Need for Voice Network Security with Vigilance Networks

Vigilance Networks, formerly known as Vibesec, a security intelligence company, today announced that Egged, an Israel-based public transportation company, is deploying the Vigilance Security Intelligence Platform as it looks to proactively protect its Cisco-based voice over IP (VoIP) network for its corporate headquarters and remote offices. Designed to protect real-time IP communications against threats, vulnerabilities, cyber attacks and toll fraud, Vigilance Networks’ Security Intelligence Platform effectively secures the unified communications (UC) and IP Telephony networks that standard IT and data security solutions are unable to adequately protect. As a result, Egged is now able to receive real-time insight and understanding of their vulnerabilities and networks as they look to mitigate cyber threats.

Operating over 55 percent of Israel’s bus service with nearly 1 million passengers, Egged began experiencing threats to their UC network. As a multi-national company with employees working out of either the headquarters or one of the remote locations – including several regional offices, a call center and a repair depot – Egged saw the need to deploy enhanced security features before a full-blown attack crippled the network and impacted transportation services. Demanding separate, specialized security for each location, Egged looked for a solution that could secure the headquarters with an emphasis on prevention of information leaks and user identity theft, as well as prevention of toll fraud at the regional offices. Without wanting to deploy multiple security solutions, Egged demanded the ability to manage security, fraud and call policy from a single, unified pane of glass.

By deploying Vigilance Networks’ Security Intelligence Platform, Egged was able to seamlessly integrate the security functions into existing technology, including session border controllers, communications servers, voicemail servers and media gateways. Vigilance Networks’ platform delivers an unprecedented amount of actionable intelligence about the known and unknown threats to Egged’s IP network. These include real-time threat, fraud and security intelligence that can be used to combat attacks as they happen, and prevent them from happening at all. As a result, Egged is able to effectively manage and monitor security, both internally and at the perimeter.

“As we work directly with the public, it’s imperative that we’re able to connect with customers and ensure continuous service over our unified communications network,” said Chen Amram, CTO of Egged. “Since the threats we were experiencing were UC specific, we saw the need for a more advanced solution. Vigilance Networks’ Security Intelligence Platform enables us to monitor our VoIP network to ensure privacy, prevent information leaks and toll fraud, and tightly manage security policies. As a result, we’re able to ensure business continuity as we continue our daily operations of running over 3,000 buses, without worrying about cyber security.”

“The challenge network administrator’s face is that standard tools and procedures used to secure the data network aren’t designed to tackle the threats facing real-time communications running on that network. With hackers becoming more educated and using advanced tools to gain entry, often times existing network security is rendered vulnerable,” said Neil Segall, CEO of Vigilance Networks. “The Vigilance Networks Security Intelligence Platform provides customers, including Egged, the unique ability to get detailed, real-time intelligence regarding their networks, thus establishing a better foundation to ensure business growth without network intrusion or interruption of service.”
