More security (part 2 of 2) - the innovaphone Reverse Proxy
In our June Newsletter we reported the benefits of the innovaphone session border controller (SBC) within the innovaphone security concept "More Security". Today, you will learn more about the innovaphone Reverse Proxy.
Professional communication has evolved rapidly in the last decades - away from the traditional desktop towards networked, flexible mobility. Workplace concepts are changing, placing the focus on the keyword "anywhere workplace”.
Unified communications and WebRTC solutions have already laid the technical foundations for this. However, it requires the innovaphone PBX to be accessible from the outside, which in turn creates a special challenge for security. The innovaphone Reverse Proxy serves as a central authority for all incoming connections from the Internet, thus securing the innovaphone PBX externally. That’s why it is ideal for Anywhere Workplace scenarios.
The innovaphone Reverse Proxy serves as a central authority for all incoming connections
Logs of incoming calls are decoded in the innovaphone Reverse Proxy and additional protocol-specific information allows the calls to be forwarded to the internal devices. Because all external requests enter on the innovaphone Reverse Proxy, it is possible to read details of attacks that have been detected. The innovaphone Reverse Proxy also has a blacklist to which IP addresses can be added automatically and manually as well as a whitelist.
As is the case for innovaphone SBC, the innovaphone Reverse Proxy can either run as a separate process on the innovaphone PBX or be installed on a separate innovaphone VoIP gateway (e.g. IP0011).

innovaphone in practice: Strehlow
Strehlow relies on the VoIP and UC solution by innovaphone
The Magdeburg-based family company, Strehlow GmbH, has some 370 employees and has been taking care of patient health at home, in hospitals, rehabilitation and homes for the elderly for more than 25 years. As well as its headquarters in Magdeburg, the medium-sized trading and service company has three other branches in the city. Once the old telephone system became unreliable, the decision was made to replace it with an innovaphone PBX, which greatly improved the user experience for the employees.
In answer to the question of how much time it took to install the new solution, Florian Hänschke (head of IT at Strehlow) explains: "Due to the fact that the service company, MDCC, had already performed the preliminary work, we only needed 6 hours in-house for the final roll-out. One of our employees worked on the preparations for about 3 months before the rollout. There were no particular difficulties during the entire project.
As regards the future development of the communications infrastructure for the health services company Strehlow, the agenda still contains some points - including the further expansion of IVR modules, the introduction of skill-based routing and connecting additional company sites.
