The evolution to IP telephony networks presents many challenges, that’s why REDCOM offers a complete range of hybrid and pure-IP softswitch solutions designed to help carriers reduce their reliance on obsolete systems.
The Security Triad
Many sources equate secure communications to encryption. While encryption certainly plays a key role in a secure communications solution, it is not the only required element. The cybersecurity industry uses a model referred to as the security triad to define the various domains that need to be addressed when securing a network. The triad – sometimes also known as CIA – includes Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability. This paper will review and define these domains for a better understanding of what is required to provide a complete secure communications solution.
Equivalencies in Security
When in an online environment, many utilize encryption to protect their communications and personal data. Any encryption method will make data inherently safer than letting it remain unencrypted. How could one make an informed decision as to which cryptographic technique is right for them? We can turn to bits of security – a hypothetical measure of an encryption’s functional strength.

Russia’s Large, Unique Presence in the Landscape of Cyber Warfare
In current American discourse surrounding cybersecurity, we are often confronted with the idea of the Russian adversary. Whether it be botnets, malware attacks, network intrusions, or general disinformation, many are quick to pin malicious cyber activity on Russian operators. Immediately following the 2016 presidential election, Russia’s influence in the realm of cyber operations became apparent even to those not well-versed in cyber-threat analysis. But before the watershed election interference, cybersecurity experts have known not only of Russia’s deep involvement in cyber-warfare, but of the peculiar geopolitics that place Russia in a unique spot within the international cyber-landscape.
