but you have to ensure that you opt for a good service provider because only they
can help take necessary steps to ensure maximum security for your voice network.
It becomes even more important when you are actually going for a hosted VoIP
system. So, be sure to take your time, educate yourself about the security concerns
associated with VoIP and then finalize your decision.
