Security – I’m sure it is important to most of you. If you are using an Internet phone there are a few things you can do to make sure it is secure.
First thing you need to do is make sure that your network is secure. Having an unauthorized person or program running on your network is not a good thing. This can disrupt your Internet phone service and make it hard for you to talk. If a program is using up your network, it could be malicious and it could be blocking access to your broadband connection. Make sure no one and nothing is using your network without your permission.
Secondly, you need to make sure you have viruses and spyware in check. If you don’t, they could disrupt your phone service by flooding your connection with fake signals making it hard to connect or use your Internet phone service.
The third thing you can do is test your network against attacks. There are many tools out there to help you with these kinds of test. You want to make sure your network is secure as possible so you won’t get your connection interrupted by something bad.
Once you have done those three things, just make sure you always monitor your network to make sure everything is running smoothly. Again, there is software out there to help you with this. After you have done those four things to secure your network, your Internet phone service should never be interrupted.
