REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., March 19, 2019 — Oracle and Microsoft have joined forces with the certification of Oracle Enterprise Session Border Controllers (E-SBCs) for use with Direct Routing in Microsoft Teams. Teams provides a 4-in-1 experience across chat, meetings, calling with the Office 365 platform. Together the companies are delivering a safe, fully integrated, real-time voice experience for the many Office 365 customers who use Teams to foster collaboration.
“Oracle’s presence in Fortune 1000 companies worldwide as a leading provider of communications solutions makes them a great choice to help secure the voice network edge for Microsoft Teams,” said Nikolay Muravlyannikov, principal program manager, Microsoft. “Both companies are committed to working together to offer customers a safe and robust collaboration and communications experience.”
More enterprises are turning to VoIP, unified communications solutions and cloud-based services to improve worker collaboration and productivity. But in a recent Oracle survey, “Enterprise Networks in Transition: Taming Chaos” survey, IT leaders cited security, fraud and complexity due to channel proliferation as top concerns. Oracle Communications’ S.A.F.E. (Secure, Analytics, Flexibility, and Extensibility) Architecture, with E-SBC and built in analytics, session management, policy and compliance functionality, helps protect networks running Teams to deliver a highly secure, seamless, multi-tenant collaboration experience.
“Oracle’s deep expertise in securing communication solutions adds a layer of trusted network protection for enterprises deploying Microsoft Teams,” said Doug Suriano, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Communications.
Oracle’s experience protecting real-time communications in the cloud gives enterprises the confidence to roll out large deployments, whether in a managed hosted environment or on premises. With this collaboration, Managed Service Providers (MSPs) can now have their enterprise customers terminate their trunks in their multi-tenant environments.
“Today’s digital economy requires workers to collaborate and communicate confidently, intelligently and efficiently in a safe environment to improve both inidual and team performance, project execution and business operations,” said Diane Myers, senior research director, IHS Markit. “With smarter and highly secure real-time collaboration tools in place, enterprises can expect to see not only richer engagement, but also enhanced productivity and innovation.”
