Ribbon's leverages big data analytics to empower enterprises to more rapidly, more intelligently, and more efficiently respond to unified communications (UC) cyberattacks, fraud attempts and network quality incidents. Ribbon Protect quickly and easily integrates with existing UC network investments without requiring network probes.

High-speed data ingestion, data enrichment, and a highly scalable and reliable data storage are the foundation for the Protect platform. Leveraging well-established concepts of network behavioral analytics from the data world, it is possible to establish a well-defined baseline of what is categorized as “normal” UC traffic as well as IP port activity. Deviations from this baseline are quickly identified and used to mitigate a variety of UC attacks by disseminating security policies across the network topology.
