Oracle Fortifies Microsoft Teams for Secure Enterprise Use

Oracle Communications gear certified to safeguard Microsoft Teams collaboration software

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Mar 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 individual 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.”
