A unified approach to information security can help modern vital infrastructure providers deal with evolving IT threats without compromising on communications or the demands of an increasingly mobile workforce. Flexible policies, combined with quality inbound threat detection, deep content inspection and encryption capabilities can help organisations to mitigate the risks – not just from outside the organisation, but also within it.

The swings of a baseball batter, a golfer and a tennis player have many
differences. However, top performers in all these sports share one core trait —
a great follow-through. They maintain focus after contact to keep the ball
on a trajectory toward obtaining the result they want, whether it is speed,
power, distance, finesse or some combination of those.
When businesses deploy a new communications solution, they often take
a very big swing as well. That solution is a major capital investment, and
it needs to work properly to avoid damaging operational efficiency or
customer service. Ultimately, there will be a reckoning as to whether
the benefits are worth the cost.
In this paper, we examine the impact that different starting points on modern
communications system management, consider the possible advantages of delivering
voice over IP (VoIP) and unified communications (UC), and examine what can be achieved
through the level of holistic management available only from a communications solution
that is IP-based by design.
This IDC Vendor Spotlight analyses emerging trends related to business drivers and technology
evolution of enterprise collaboration and communication in Australia. The study takes a look at the
business and organisational challenges facing C-suite executives, including the CIO and other IT
decision makers, and the potential for tapping these trends for considerable positive gain. We also
discuss the role of the portfolio of solutions offered by the partnership between Cisco, Alphawest and
Optus in this market segment.
One of the fundamental design goals of the Internet was to achieve an unprecedented
level of communications network resilience. As a result, packet-switched networks
fundamentally enable fault tolerance, adaptive routing, and disaster recovery, so it is
quite possible—and can be quite cost-effective—to build IP-based communications
systems that are more reliable than circuit-switched PBX platforms. The key is to start with
the right foundation. Read on.
