Yes, but placing a Telewall Firewall in-line with a very busy PBX (over 8
T-1s) can cause a bottle neck.  This is an extremely bad design for large
nationwide insurance companies.  The Telewall Firewall was not successful
at the last place I was consulting at. It is not compatible with the larger
Lucent or WilTel equipment.

To clarify some information about the SecureLogix products for telephony
security:

TeleSweep Secure Scanner is a distributable dialer/vulnerability scanner for
remote access servers that has penetration testing capabilities.

TeleWall Firewall is a distributable appliance that connects between a PBX
and the CO and allows administrators to control voice and data traffic using
a security policy thats very similar to most policy-based ip only firewalls.
Admins can set policy that allows or terminates traffic based on source,
destination, call type, time of day, etc.  It is PBX independent.

The older version of PhoneSweep wasn't the best in the world
although I haven't gotten around to using the newer version.
In reference to the other new product SecureLogix has.. TeleWall - From all
the tests I have personally seen, it seems to work extremely well not only
from a security standpoint but from a management standpoint as well.  It
acts as a firewall for phone systems from the PBX... It can detect
voice/fax/data
modes and lock certain numbers to only certain means of comms. (ie.. a voice
only can't have a modem unknowingly connected to it - you have to activate
it on the management console.)
