Did you know that hacking and other abuse of business telephony is becoming as big as credit card fraud? An increasing number of businesses have reported that over a weekend their phone system has been hacked and that expensive international calls have been made using their phone number.
This type of misuse is committed by complex networks of international criminals who effectively hack into your telephone system and pass (often premium) traffic through your telephone lines. With this type of abuse the liability for the cost of the calls falls to your business! To a network provider like Gamma the calls are seen as coming from your phone system and therefore you are liable for the bill.
The CallGuard service protects your business from such activity. The network detects unusual usage and automatically bars the line, meaning that you are only ever liable for the calls up until the bar is in place.
Who is it for? This protection service is available to all of our customers and is particularly beneficial to customers with large phone system installations at their sites. From as little as £1.00 a month, you can protect yourself and rest assured that your business will not fall victim to unscrupulous activity.
