IPS Lock: prevent unauthorized calls - lock it with a PIN code
Flexible call control via the instrument:
Prevent all unauthorized calls from your Cisco IP Phone with IPS Lock. This application helps reducing premium rate calls abuse and impersonation. IPS Lock can be configured to block different categories of numbers: premium rates, international, external numbers and always allow a list of emergency numbers.
The phone is locked by opening a service on the phone or by pressing a button (SURL). It can also be automatically locked on idle time and at a preset hours of the day.
To unlock their phones, users need to enter their CUCM PIN Code either via a graphical interface on the device or directly through an audio menu (DTMF) when making a blocked call (if IPS Lock is configured to reroute blocked calls to the integrated audio server).
IPS Lock can be used as an alternative for Extension Mobility or used as a complement.
The simplicity and speed of the process encourages users to lock their phones often or automatically. IPS Lock can also let users change their own PIN and schedule their Call History clear up foradded convenience and privacy.
IPS Lock is also included in the full IPS Phone Config Application Suite. IPS Lock can block access to an IP Phone service or the Directories on the phones when used with telisca’s IPS. For system administrators, a web interface is available for setting up the configuration options proposed to users.
