Humbug Telecom Labs provider of carrier-class fraud prevention, detection and telecom analytics for any size business, announced that Askozia® will bundle the Humbug fraud detection, prevention and analytics tools

Humbug Telecom Labs provider of carrier -class fraud prevention, detection and telecom analytics for any size business, today announced that Askozia® will bundle the Humbug fraud detection, prevention and analytics tools into their Asterisk -based PBX solution.


The Askozia PBX is a fully -featured telephone system that is able to connect with virtually any telephony technology and is configured via a highly intuitive Web GUI. Askozia PBX aims to make the power of Asterisk available to the average user in a slimmed down, embedded format. Askozia provides both software and appliance -based PBX's.

"Hacking of telephone systems is a very real problem that costs small businesses billions annually and it was critical for us to protect our customers," said Benjamin -Nicola Lken, head of operations for Askozia. "Askozia is one of the only PBX manufacturers to provide this capability and you'll likely see others follow our lead in the future."

Humbug Analytics and Fraud Prevention is natively available on the Askozia PBX as of version 2.1 which was released this month. This release allows Askozia users to receive in -depth traffic reports, secure their PBX, and gain traffic alerting capabilities.

Askozia is business -grade PBX used by small and medium sized organizations which normally do not have access to fraud prevention technology. Thanks to Humbug Labs and Askozia, these users will be able to easily benefit from this protection.

Askozia will be providing and promoting Humbug to its users as a security tool and as an advanced reporting interface. Humbug will be promoting Askozia as a Humbug -ready solution for organizations that seek an advanced and secure PBX system.

"Open source phone systems are particularly susceptible to voicemail hacking, hijacking and other forms of telecom fraud," said Yaniv Rofé, CEO of Humbug Telecom Labs. "Small businesses tend to think that they are immune to such behavior, but telecom hacking has now become a common occurrence, particularly with smaller businesses that that hackers and phreakers can easily target."
