Tips for Choosing a Hosted PBX System

Consider Total Cost

hosted-pbxOn-premise telephone systems typically require a large upfront investment, while hosted systems are paid for with more affordable, monthly payments. Buyers should consider the total cost of ownership of these systems in addition to the initial capital necessary to purchase a new phone network.

The Value of Specific vs. Bundled Functionality

Today, the technical capabilities of hosted and on-premise PBX systems are largely equal. One difference, however, is how these features are bundled. Hosted PBX providers commonly bundle features and charge a set per-user price. On-premise PBX, on the other hand, often provides buyers greater flexibility on the features and functionality they want to pay for (particularly, offering more customization for specific users).

Ease of Customization

Customization is often attainable with on-premise systems, as an on-staff IT professional commonly oversees the system’s deployment and management. With hosted systems, customization is often handled by the provider. While vendors may offer some customization, they are often unable to make extreme customizations for every customer. If your system requires advanced customization, on-premise PBX may be a more reasonable option. If choosing a hosted option, work with a vendor to discuss the exact customizations you need and what they can offer.

True Costs of Tech Support

If you currently don’t have an IT team, then hosted PBX can potentially save your company from having to hire technical staff members. However, you should also consider how relying on third-party support works with your company’s current strategies. If your telephone system is critical to your business, you should be very comfortable with your vendor that will be responsible for system support.

How Using Hosted PBX vs. Phone Lines Saves Money

Phone companies charge by the minute for phone calls. PBX treats information passing through your broadband IP as chunks of data, making it less expensive than a phone line. For businesses that want to save money, using Hosted PBX will cut costs by using available resources.

Primary Ways That Hosted PBX Saves Money
  • The cost of installing or upgrading phone lines is omitted.
  • Hosted PBX Systems feature equipment that hooks directly into your broadband network
  • Hosted PBX Systems offer encrypted VPN connections, saving the cost of buying security software for phone lines
  • Hosted PBX Systems offer common features that phone companies may charge for, including call waiting, voicemail, caller ID and conferencing
  • Our infoPBX National plan offers unlimited long-distance calling*
No more “Phone Guy”

Expanding your phone system normally requires a call to the phone company to setup new equipment. That means time lost as new lines and calling features are connected. With Hosted PBX, that connection can be done with a few clicks via the web portal on your account.

See your Voicemails as Emails

Our Hosted PBX forwards your voicemail to your email inbox. This feature allows you to play voicemail on your Mac or PC, freeing up time on your handset.

Top Five Ways to Speed Up Your PC

speed-up-your-pcThere are many items that can slow down your computer or laptop such as spyware, malware and viruses, which your computer will pick up. You should also consider the fact that if your computer is getting old and software is getting outdated, this too will inhibit your PC from doing what it is supposed to. Even new, out-of-the-box computers come with a load of programs on them. Manufacturers think you need them all, and you almost always do not. Some of these will continually run in the background and, in turn, slow down your system.

While keeping your computer hardware up to date and your anti-virus software current can help mitigate some of the problems your computer will encounter, what else can you do to speed up your system? We break down a few tips to help boost the performance of your PC.

1) Remove Spyware

We can’t stress enough how important it is to rid yourself of these nasty bugs that can slip into the cracks of your virtual life. Spyware can cause pop-ups as well as collect personal information without letting you know or asking for permission. This puts your computer and your information at risk. Spyware also can also instruct your home computer to send harmful emails to your friends and family. These are just a few of spyware’s tricks. Make sure you use a reputable spyware remover to take care of the problem.

2) Free Up Disk Space

The Disk Cleanup tool is a great way to help free up space on your hard disk and improve performance. A few things Disk Cleanup can do are:

  • Remove temporary internet files (which generally take up the most space).
  • Empty the Recycle Bin.
  • Delete programs you never use.
  • Remove Windows Temporary files, such as error reports.
  • Backup files you never access.
3) Defrag

Disk fragmentation slows the overall efficiency of your computer. As you install and uninstall programs and save and delete files over the years, these actions create small empty gaps among the other data on your hard drive. After a while, new information is no longer stored in blocks, but in the nooks and corners of your hard drive. As a result, your computer must work harder to piece certain parts of the data together by scouring the hard drive. Disk Defragmenter consolidates these files and folders so that they occupy one single space on the disk. Run this when:

  • You add a large number of files
  • Your free space totals 15 percent or less.
  • You install new, large programs or a new OS.
4) Use ReadyBoost

ReadyBoost was introduced with Windows XP, and there are multiple videos on Microsoft’s website that instruct you on how to use ReadyBoost. This tool basically uses a USB flash drive or memory card to introduce a level of memory that functions somewhere between RAM and your hard drive disk for storing non-volatile memory. ReadyBoost works better on systems that struggle to open and maintain the speed of certain programs. It will enhance your computer, but only if you have a hard drive that is at capacity or a system that is several years old. Otherwise, you are not going to notice much of a difference.

5) Repair Disk Errors

In addition to Defragmentation and Disk Cleanup, repairing disk errors can optimize the performance of your hard drive and your system. As you use your hard drive, it can develop bad sectors, making it hard or impossible to save files and write data to your hard drive. By running the Error Checking utility, you can scan and repair bad sectors. To run this utility, follow these steps:

  • Close all open files and programs.
  • Click Start, and then click Computer.
  • In the Computer window (My Computer), right-click the hard disk you want to search for bad sectors, and then click Properties.
  • In the Properties dialog box, click the Tools tab.
  • Click the Check Now button.
  • In the Check Disk dialog box (called Error-checking in Windows 7), select the Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors check box, and then click Start.
  • If you find bad sectors, choose to fix them.

Regular maintenance, like running the Defrag and Disk Cleanup utilities, as well as running spyware removers, should ideally be done once or twice a month, depending on how often you use your computer. All these tips can come together to help your computer be more efficient and give you an optimized computer experience without severe lag times.

The Top Cloud Computing Threats in an Enterprise Environment are companies with operational models 90% based on cloud services, and the rest of the 10% is constituted wi­th in-house servers. The basic response after asking about security issues related to cloud services was that the cloud service provider will take care of them and they don’t have to worry about it.

This isn’t necessarily the case with every cloud service provider, since some CSPs have a good security model in place, while others clearly do not. There are many advantages of cloud services, which is why the cloud service model is being used extensively, but they are out of scope of this article.

Before continuing, let’s quickly define a threat. A threat is an actor who wants to attack assets in the cloud at a particular time with a particular goal in mind, usually to inflict his own financial gain and consequentially financial loss of a customer.

Before deciding to migrate to the cloud, we have to look at the cloud security threats to determine whether the cloud service is worth the risk due to the many advantages it provides. The following are the top security threats in a cloud environment:

Ease of Use

The cloud services can easily be used by malicious attackers, since a registration process is very simple, because we only have to have a valid credit card. In some cases we can even pay for the cloud service by using PayPal, Western Union, Payza, Bitcoin, or Litecoin, in which cases we can stay totally anonymous. The cloud can be used maliciously for various purposes like spamming, malware distribution, botnet C&C servers, DDoS, password and hash cracking.

Secure Data Transmission

When transferring the data from clients to the cloud, the data needs to be transferred by using an encrypted secure communication channel like SSL/TLS. This prevents different attacks like MITM attacks, where the data could be stolen by an attacker intercepting our communication.

Insecure APIs

Various cloud services on the Internet are exposed by application programming interfaces. Since the APIs are accessible from anywhere on the Internet, malicious attackers can use them to compromise the confidentiality and integrity of the enterprise customers. An attacker gaining a token used by a customer to access the service through service API can use the same token to manipulate the customer’s data. Therefore it’s imperative that cloud services provide a secure API, rendering such attacks worthless.

Malicious Insiders

Employees working at cloud service provider could have complete access to the company resources. Therefore cloud service providers must have proper security measures in place to track employee actions like viewing a customer’s data. Since cloud service provides often don’t follow the best security guidelines and don’t implement a security policy, employees can gather confidential information from arbitrary customers without being detected.

Shared Technology Issues

The cloud service SaaS/PasS/IaaS providers use scalable infrastructure to support multiple tenants which share the underlying infrastructure. Directly on the hardware layer, there are hypervisors running multiple virtual machines, themselves running multiple applications.

On the highest layer, there are various attacks on the SaaS where an attacker is able to get access to the data of another application running in the same virtual machine. The same is true for the lowest layers, where hypervisors can be exploited from virtual machines to gain access to all VMs on the same server (example of such an attack is Red/Blue Pill). All layers of shared technology can be attacked to gain unauthorized access to data, like: CPU, RAM, hypervisors, applications, etc.

Data Loss

The data stored in the cloud could be lost due to the hard drive failure. A CSP could accidentally delete the data, an attacker might modify the data, etc. Therefore, the best way to protect against data loss is by having a proper data backup, which solves the data loss problems. Data loss can have catastrophic consequences to the business, which may result in a business bankruptcy, which is why keeping the data backed-up is always the best option.

Data Breach

When a virtual machine is able to access the data from another virtual machine on the same physical host, a data breach occurs – the problem is much more prevalent when the tenants of the two virtual machines are different customers. The side-channel attacks are valid attack vectors and need to be addressed in everyday situations. A side-channel attack occurs when a virtual machine can use a shared component like processor’s cache to access the data of another virtual machine running on the same physical host.

Account/Service Hijacking

 It’s often the case that only a password is required to access our account in the cloud and manipulate the data, which is why the usage of two-factor authentication is preferred. Nevertheless, an attacker gaining access to our account can manipulate and change the data and therefore make the data untrustworthy. An attacker having access to the cloud virtual machine hosting our business website can include a malicious code into the web page to attack users visiting our web page – this is known as the watering hole attack. An attacker can also disrupt the service by turning off the web server serving our website, rendering it inaccessible.

Unknown Risk Profile

We have to take all security implications into account when moving to the cloud, including constant software security updates, monitoring networks with IDS/IPS systems, log monitoring, integrating SIEM into the network, etc. There might be multiple attacks that haven’t even been discovered yet, but they might prove to be highly threatening in the years to come.

Denial of Service

 An attacker can issue a denial of service attack against the cloud service to render it inaccessible, therefore disrupting the service. There are a number of ways an attacker can disrupt the service in a virtualized cloud environment: by using all its CPU, RAM, disk space or network bandwidth.

Lack of Understanding

Enterprises are adopting the cloud services in everyday operations, but it’s often the case they don’t really understand what they are getting into. When moving to the cloud there are different aspects we need to address, like understanding how the CSP operates, how the application is working, how to debug the application when something goes wrong, whether the data backups are already in place in case the hard drive dies, etc. If the CSP doesn’t provide additional backup of the data, but the customer expects it, who will be responsible when the hard drive fails? The customer will blame the CSP, but in reality it’s the customer’s fault, since they didn’t familiarize themselves enough with the cloud service operations – the result of which will be lost data.

User Awareness

 The users of the cloud services should be educated regarding different attacks, because the weakest link is often the user itself. There are multiple social engineering attack vectors that an attacker might use to lure the victim into visiting a malicious web site, after which he can get access to the user’s computer. From there, he can observe user actions and view the same data the user is viewing, not to mention that he can steal user’s credentials to authenticate to the cloud service itself. Security awareness is an often overlooked security concern.


When an enterprise company wants to move their current operation to the cloud, they should be aware of the cloud threats in order for the move to be successful. At InfoStructure, we make every attempt to secure our networks and cloud platforms to protect our customers from malicious attackers.

VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) Solutions Becoming More Popular for Small Business Phone Systems.

virtual phone system

A new report by VoIP software analysis company, Software Advice  surveyed over 350 businesses and found that although small businesses still rely on both landlines and mobile phones, small businesses are shifting towards virtual phone systems. This report surveyed over 350 businesses with annual revenues of $190 million or less during 2013-2014 – the goal of the report was to try to determine pain points and reasons for purchasing a new small business phone system.

  • More than half of potential buyers were investing in business VoIP service for the first time.
  • Scalability and reliability were the primary concerns when evaluating new phone systems.
  • A vast majority wanted a hosted solution, not an on-premise IP-P­BX.
Traditional PSTN and mobile connections going to the wayside

The research concluded that 31% of small businesses were still using a landline and 13% relied exclusively on their mobile phones as their main source of business communications. Over half of buyers (57%) asked said that they were looking to invest in a VoIP service for the first time.

Reliability and scalability important factor

17% of the sample noted lack of reliability as the largest issue with their current business phone system. Issues with connectivity and dropped calls were frequent problems for the surveyed buyers. Other buyers noted that their system’s maximum capacity was not large enough to accommodate company growth – about 15%.

Top reasons for new purchases

15% of those businesses surveyed said that a system with a lower price was important, 14% said that increased functionality was another major incentive to switch to VoIP.

Support was a major pain point for many buyers. One buyer noted that every time he needed to make changes to the system, he had to call someone else to do it.

Surprisingly for telecom professionals, improved call quality was not a major concern. Only a few buyers reported audio quality issues such as “static.” This finding is congruent with the results of a recent survey conducted on public concerns about VoIP, which found that only 10% of consumers were worried about call quality with VoIP services.

Cloud-based systems popular with small businesses

The reliability and support concerns that were uncovered create a high level of interest in hosted (web-based) solutions. None of the small business owners that were surveyed wanted to purchase an on-premise IP-PBX. 77% of the sample wanted a web-based solution, while 23% did not have a preference. This suggests that many small businesses do not have the IT staff necessary to maintain an on-premise system. Buyers like this tend to prefer a hosted solution that maintains itself and also grants administrative and user access through an internet browser.

Most desired applications – Auto Attendant at the top

Most buyers surveyed wanted private branch exchange (PBX) functionality from their phone systems—and those who did not specify this preference probably wanted a PBX without knowing the word for it, since PBX functionality is the backbone of a small business phone system.

After the need for extensions and directories, an auto attendant was easily the most in-demand application among the buyers surveyed. The popularity of the auto attendant stems from its ability to make any small business sound like a larger enterprise – for example, a local pet store. One business owner noted that he wants an auto attendant to give the appearance that his company is larger than it really is.

Voicemail-to-email and number portability also important

The death of voicemail has been proclaimed for nearly a decade now but more buyers (28%) requested this feature than any other. Also, 9% of buyers expressed a high level of interest in caller ID and 7% in voicemail-to-email functionality. Another very popular feature is number portability (7%). A number of buyers insisted that keeping their original number was a requirement. Not having number portability was a deal breaker for many small-business owners.


Even though many still rely on landlines or mobile phones, the data shows that small businesses are shifting toward VoIP solutions. These buyers are interested in solutions that are scalable and reliable. They want to add users easily and inexpensively as their business grows. Few buyers surveyed have an IT background, so effective technical support and reliability is very important. Small-business owners are interested in unified communications solutions that offer features such as voicemail-to-email. Since 13% of surveyed buyers are reliant on their mobile phones for business communications, small-business owners are interested in remote access and control of their phone systems. As VoIP technology continues to advance, it will become easier for small businesses to integrate voice calling, video conferencing, email, voicemail and chat using technologies that were formerly restricted. If you are interested in VoIP as your small business phone system then contact InfoStructure today to find out how your business phone system can be upgraded to a hosted PBX at an affordable price.

Top 5 Ways to Speed up Web Browsing

speed up your internet1. Use passwords that are secure

If your browser offers a master password option, use it. If you are using one weak password with all your site logins, you could be jeopardizing your private data. Using a secure password system can fix that. If you’re using different browsers across different systems, you can keep your password synced with Dropbox, or take care of bookmarks as well with Foxmarks (Firefox only).

2. Use OpenDNS on your browser and/or router

With OpenDNS (a free service that can speed up your page connections) open pages from keyword shortcuts, operate with a parental filter, and avoid spam pages. This service provides detailed how-to instructions for both individual computers and routers, so it’s definitely worth a try.

3. Block Flash and/or JavaScript

If you are using Firefox, install the Adblock Plus and Flashblock extensions, and sites slowed down by Flash and huge display ads will load quite a bit faster. If you’re able to tweak your router, set up universal ad-blocking through it with the Tomato firmware, or use a solution specific to Chrome, on Internet Explorer through the Toggle Flash add-on or IE7Pro plug-in, and even on your iPhone or iPod touch.

4. Use RSS feeds and mobile versions instead of heavy sites

RSS feeds are great for getting a lot of reading done in a short amount of time. Google Reader webapp and NetNewsWire/NewsGator’s desktop clients are both great way to catch up on your regular web reading with a minimum of bandwidth or witout a connection whatsoever. You can run any site that is loaded full of news through the Google Mobilizer for a version that is fast enough for a mobile phone, and very fast on a desktop.

5. Tweak Connection rates on your home wireless network

Your wireless router can actually regulate bandwidth while watching your XBox, BitTorrent downloads, multiple laptops, and other web-connected apps and gear fight it out for a finite amount of bandwidth. Many routers let you negotiate connection rate using quality of service settings. Those routers that don’t have these settings can often be made to do so by installing DD-WRT or Tomato. The end result? You can let heavy video games run in the evenings, set BitTorrent free in the middle of the night and keep your browser quiet during the day.

InfoStructure Voices in on IP Phone Security

cyber pirateJust recently, InfoStructure employee Derrick Sisson came across this article in which a small business is now faced with a $166,000 bill for fraudulent telephone charges. Derrick says, “There are several ways fraud like this happens. Of course we all know the dreaded SIP hacks and VoIP weakness of being out on the internet, but that’s not the only way a customer is vulnerable to fraud….Once they have access they are able to do anything they want including  making International calls undetected by the customer…” We are aware of the risks that face IP Phone systems and below are some ideas that will help maintain the security of your IP Phone System.

Protect Your Voice!

Hacking into phone calls via IP Telephony (also known as VoIP) opens a veritable gold mine of valuable data and information. Large financial boons are at risk in government agencies, financial institutions, and professional services firms. Also at risk are call centers where health records, confidential account information and payment card data can get hacked. Hacking voicemail has also become popular as it exposes private business information and celebrity secrets. Toll fraud is also being committed by large groups of phone pirates who are committed to compromising the security of your phones.

Doing Nothing Can Be Costly

The risks in VoIP go beyond eavesdropping, toll fraud, and voicemail hacks. IP phones can also be entry points into your business network. VoIP calls and voicemail messages are data and can possibly get hacked. If you use a hosted IP phone service or a VoIP system, protecting these networks are similar to protecting a data network. The security policies and technologies can be complex, depending on the IP phone system you’re using, whether onsite or hosted. Following is an introduction to some IP phone security strategies:

Scrutinize Your Hosted VoIP System

Evaluate services such as user authentication, encryption, and VLAN configuration and also check the security of configuring and signaling methods. Also investigate any HIPAA, SOX, PCI, or other compliance guidance that apply.

Take advantage of features on your VoIP system that enable security. Essentially:
  • Place network restrictions on types of calls by device, user, and other criteria.
  • Control voice network access by user name and password and/or device certificate.
Apply physical and logical protection, such as:
  • Install OS updates and limit software loading on phones.
  • Lock voice servers for administration. Use domain restr­­­ictions and two-factor authentication for administrative access, including signaling data, configuration files and credentials.
  • Set up a firewall and intrusion prevention system (IPS) to regulate authorized and unauthorized VoIP traffic and to track abnormal voice activities.
Use VLANs to Segment Voice Traffic and Separate It from Data Traffic
  • Some voice systems and switches support device discovery protocols and automatically assign IP phones to voice VLANs.
Sensitive Voice Traffic Should Be Encrypted
  • Encrypt your Internet gateway with Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) over Transport Layer Security (TLS).
  • Apply encryption by segment, device, or user; indiscriminate encrypting can result in excessive network latency or introduce operational overhead and complexity.
  • Encrypt the media (packets) with protocols such as SRTP.
  • Use VPNs for network connections by remote phones. This is important when SRTP or HTTPS is not available.
Implement Strict Security Policies with Users
  • Communicate your phones’ built-in security features to users.
  • Apply strong passwords to access the voicemail inbox. Immediately change the default password to a strong password, then change it as often as your company’s policy dictates for changing login and email passwords.
  • Delete sensitive voicemail messages as soon as users have listened to them. Not storing voicemails is the easiest and most effective way to protect them.
  • Immediately report anomalies. You may not know a phone has been hacked until an employee reports an odd occurrence, such as a saved voicemail message that has been deleted or forwarded to an unusual number.

Don’t let cybercriminals find your IP phones and voice systems accessible to attack. Equip yourself with tools that protect your sensitive data files today.


Businesses Bandwidth and the Need for Speed

It may be tempting to believe that information comes out of thin air, but the infrastructure of internet communication is not magic. Rather, data runs on physical lines and through network devices that can only carry a finite amount of traffic. Given that business functions are increasingly turning over to web applications, customers are using the internet as the primary point of contact with a business, and phone lines are increasingly being replaced with voice over IP (VoIP) systems, a company cannot neglect its bandwidth needs.
It is not uncommon to hear the results of dropped packets due to bandwidth constraints when using web applications such as Skype. Audio calls, video conferencing, media streaming, employees running media from third-party sites, and other bandwidth intensive uses compete with traffic needed by applications that handle primary business functions. There are some general guidelines for how much bandwidth a business may need:
• 2 megabytes per second will cover medium to low-definition video chat, social media, limited voice calls, and most inter-office text communication such as IM and email.
• 5 megabytes per second will cover all of the above plus high definition video and medium file transfers.
• 10 megabytes per second will enable large file transfers and most of the other intensive, high-tech needs of a modern business.
A business should consider high-speed internet and its network capabilities with as much thought as its business plan, its recruiting/talent retention, and its sales/marketing efforts. In order to ensure that your bandwidth capabilities are up to par with the strategic vision of your company, contact your trusted service provider.

Exciting Trends in IP Business Communications for 2013

The Emerging Mobile Majority
The rapid adoption of mobile devices in the workplace continues to enhance productivity and efficiency. A recent report by Forrester observes, “A full 66 percent of employees now use two or more devices for work every day including desktops, laptops, smartphones and tablets.”

Integrating Public and Private Clouds
The emerging mobile workplace requires an ability to switch between public and private clouds, and to do so both securely and seamlessly. Companies will be challenged to enthusiastically and competently embrace change and support cloud-based applications.

In 2013, in excess of 60 percent of companies will have instituted cloud computing to some degree, according to a recent Gartner report.

Security Initiatives
The need for cloud-based security is no longer just good business, it is essential. The need to protect proprietary data is self-evident. So is the need to keep customer information secure as well.

Also, legal mandates are as substantial as ever. Current initiatives include health care clouds to address privacy requirements under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). The public sector is looking to cloud-based solutions to maintain compliance with the Federal Information Security Management Act. Finally, the payment card industry’s rapid emergence in mobile device-based transactions creates a host of new security needs in the cloud.

IP Traffic Growth — 29% per year
The pervasiveness of mobile devices and cloud-based computing will be driving forces in 2013 and beyond. The Cisco Visual Networking Index projects annual compound growth in IP traffic of a dramatic 29 percent through 2016. Consumers and employees alike will increasingly expect smart and secure networks to enhance their productivity and their lives.

Is EOC a Good Fit for You?

You know what they always say – time is money. Well, the reason they always say that is because it’s true. When your time is your most valuable asset, you don’t want to waste any of it waiting on inadequate connection speeds or dealing with interrupted service. If you need fast, reliable internet service at affordable prices, Ethernet over copper (EOC) might be the best business internet solution for you.
If your business is growing to the point that you’ve outgrown traditional DSL, then Ethernet over copper is an affordable way to take things to the next level. EOC can offer higher bandwidth that is easily scalable and extremely reliable. Depending upon your business location, it offers bandwidth speeds up to 45 Mbps, while remaining less expensive than a T-1.
EOC uses the existing copper telephone wires already in place, so the installation time tends to be relatively quick. Ethernet over copper combines that infrastructure already in place with new technology to bring greater reliability to your internet service. EOC uses multiple wire pairs, so if one pair goes offline, others can be accessed.
Is EOC the right choice for your business? If you need more bandwidth and faster network speeds, along with disaster recovery solutions and redundancy to protect your information assets, take a close look at EOC. Deployed on the best EOC technology available, InfoStream EOC is designed for businesses like yours.
