Keep Your Guard Up! Another Softphone Breach Shows Why Mitel Software Assurance is so Important

Software maintenance and updates, often called Software Assurance, aren’t top of mind for many business leaders. And yet, when you fail to realize its importance, big problems can occur, like last month’s softphone security breach that affected millions of people.

Together, TCI and Mitel are determined to help our customers safeguard what counts.

We understand the importance of protecting against the unexpected – proactively monitoring for threats, installing the latest patches and fixes, and providing outstanding support whenever our clients have an issue.

Mitel is tracking the security posture of global companies

Research has found that only 37% of companies have implemented a proactive security strategy covering real-time and non-real-time applications and services. 30% say they’re either developing or evaluating a security strategy, and 33% of companies are approaching communications and collaboration security in a piecemeal fashion.

Mitel is a Global Leader in Secure Communications

Mitel’s Secure Development Life Cycle is a comprehensive framework that begins with new app development and extends through ongoing product security and data privacy assurance. Mitel’s framework includes proven governance, security practice standards and guidance, constant measurement, and continuous improvement.

Local Response. Global Resources.

TCI backs up our DC region response working with Mitel’s Global Product Security Incident Response Team. Time is your most valuable asset during a security attack, so the sooner you identify and mitigate a threat the more likely you are to minimize the cost and damage of that attack.

TCI customers also benefit from our global network of Mitel partners, engineers, and customers who help us understand security issues and quickly take proper remediation steps together.

Mitel’s commitment to software assurance can also be found in Mitel’s latest software assurance (SWA) levels: Advantage SWA and Premium SWA

Both offer Mitel’s industry-leading protection, including 24x7x365 tech support, rapid response times, enriched performance analytics, automated security and functionality updates, APIs, full access to CloudLink Gateway, and real-time support during security incidents.

Even the best software assurance can’t guarantee you’ll avoid being attacked. What it can do is make sure you’re prepared and fully supported so that attacks are deflected or mitigated before they negatively impact your business.
