VoIP Driving The Need For SSL VPNs: Survey

The need for VoIP security is an increasing important reason cited by enterprises for deploying SSL VPNs, according to a new report by market research firm Infonetics Research.

Security is still the top concern when implementing VPNs, but "VoIP support is moving up the list of important features for VPN products as more and more organizations roll out VoIP and discover compatibility problems with VPNs," the report found.

The report also found that:

* SSL is becoming increasingly popular, and will rise from 21% usage today to more than a third by March, 2008.

* VPN/firewall appliances are the most popular devices for deploying VPNs, followed by router-based products.
