What Does a Unified Communications Certificate Do

By Emily Collins

Despite the widespread use of unified communications in offices and businesses today, few users equate their online communication behaviour with that of their day-to-day conduct.

Whilst most users believe that their lack of internet manners is something that can simply be shrugged off, this is an attitude that can lead to potential security dangers. Unlike face-to-face contact, online users can’t see you and you have no way in which to authenticate their identity. This can lead to identity theft, hacking and scams. These security scams can even affect those on simple hosted telephony systems.

One of the best ways of increasing security is to gain a unified communications certificate. This is especially important for those exchanging money, working on joint projects or discussing confidential information over unified communication systems.

A UCC (unified communications certificate) is in essence a security management systems protocol used for messaging services on a communications network. A third party provide this security system and ask businesses to give evidence of authenticity. This means that businesses can secure one or several domain names as a result of this.

This system gives customers and acquaintances an added sense of security, as a certified third party must give notification of identity, and it allows organisers of the network to dictate what information is shared over the communication network. However, UCC’s are murky water and it can be difficult to ascertain who qualifies for one.

Depending on the manner of the information you discuss on your network, you might discard the thought of securing a UCC for a hosted telephony system. However, it is still worth consideration since a hosted telephony system sends transmits of sound bites as ‘packets’ along the IP network, making it simple for a hacker to gain access into the system to record your conversations.

This can conversely lead to a theft of information if you are discussing confidential business matters over a hosted telephony line whose line is a victim of identity fraud. It is worth considering purchasing a Unified Communications Certificate for these reasons and asking others for the certifications.
