1 Full-Size Collaboration for Midsize Companies Avaya Solution Guide
2 Avaya for the Midmarket Over the last decade, the removal of trade barriers and the accelerated technology adoption by companies and individuals in emerging markets have opened tremendous opportunities for businesses of all sizes to expand and compete at a global scale. Enabled by lean operating models, significant cash positions, and aggressive expansion tactics, midmarket companies over the last few years have been wellpositioned to capitalize on this opportunity. They are not waiting for their domestic economies to recover and are accelerating capital investment in technology and operations to fund aggressive growth projects. 1 In the process of expanding beyond their local markets, midmarket companies have been facing unique operational challenges to improve their competitiveness against larger enterprises and to keep accelerating growth. With business associates, suppliers, and partners now scattered across the globe, and the need to attract a new generation of hyperconnected professionals to their talent pool, midmarket companies are increasingly looking to unified communications & collaboration (UC&C) technology as the key foundation to enable business growth and to realize the maximum productivity gains from dispersed teams collaborating across geographies with different computing and communications devices. In fact, according to a Forrester Research Forrsights survey in 2013, 29 percent of midmarket companies surveyed stated that they planned to implement a solution in the next 12 months while nearly 60 percent expressed some level of interest in UC&C. 2 In supporting fast-growing businesses, IT departments are under immense pressure to deliver additional and higher-performance application services quickly, yet with very limited resources. For midmarket companies, adhering to the same standards of performance, security, compliance, and manageability as those of larger enterprises further complicates this challenge. In their efforts to give the business a solid IT-enabled competitive edge, midmarket IT decision-makers should consider partnering with vendors that provide end-to-end solutions that not only meet their complex business requirements, but also eliminate infrastructure complexity and help them stay at or below budget goals. End-toend vendors that build solutions specifically for the midmarket space can help elevate the role of IT to the business and secure continued funding to drive transformational IT-enabled initiatives in midmarket companies. With IP Office, Avaya enables midmarket IT departments deliver more IT-enabled innovation by equipping the business with an enterprise-level UC&C platform that is built specifically for the needs of emerging midmarket companies. IP Office offers a powerful, yet affordable, quickto-deploy and easy-to-maintain UC&C platform that empowers IT departments to put their business counterparts on par with larger enterprises in regard to collaboration capabilities. 1 KPMG, 2012 Mid Market Outlook Survey. 2 Forrester Research, Forrsights Telecom And Mobility Workforce Survey, Q avaya.com 2

9 Featured Products: Avaya Session Border Controller for Enterprise Protection for your SIP trunks against denial of service (DoS) and spoofing attacks Secure access for remote end points Active packet inspection Protection against toll fraud call walking, stealth attacks Avaya Identity Engines Centralized security and access control for your network Network- and device-agnostic Security In deploying a complete UC&C platform, IT departments need to ensure that the new converged infrastructure does not make corporate resources vulnerable to external attacks. In SIP deployments, vulnerabilities may exist at the point where the SIP trunk connects to the public network. Those vulnerabilities can leave the UC&C platform exposed to hacker attacks including spoofing, call hijacking, eavesdropping, and toll fraud. In addition to potential damage to business operations and privacy, security mandates such as those for credit and health information (e.g., PCI and HIPAA) require that these vulnerabilities be addressed, imposing significant financial and legal penalties for noncompliance. In order to safeguard the new UC&C infrastructure, IT departments can leverage Avaya s Session Border Controller for Enterprise (SBCE). The SBCE establishes a precise demarcation where the SIP trunks meet the enterprise network, presenting a clear line of defense. It delivers enterprise-class security with active packet inspection that includes protection from denial of service (DoS) and application-layer threats as well as toll fraud. Fine-grained policy enforcement helps ensure ongoing compliance. A single-box solution built with the simplicity midmarket IT departments require, Avaya SBCE provides a complete application-layer security architecture in one device: SIP Firewall, Session Border Controller, Intrusion Detection System and Intrusion Prevention System (IDS/IPS), Access Controller, Authentication, Unified Communications Proxy, and Policy Enforcement for all real-time unified communications applications. Avaya also offers a complete and integrated solution to ensure BYOD guest and network access to employees, guests, and business partners via its Identity Engines portfolio. IT managers have full visibility of who has accessed and who is on the network, and can quickly and easily add, remove, and control the level of network access for every user and device. Identity Engines allows users to be provisioned once whether they connect using a wired or wireless connection and they are associated with the same security profile and access policies. It also can provision guest users in less than 10 seconds. avaya.com 9
