Sipera Secures $10 Million for VoIP/UC Security

Sipera Systems, a start-up based in Richardson, Texas, raised $30 million in Series C funding for its VoIP/UC security solutions.

The Sipera IPCS products combine VPN, Firewall/SBC, Intrusion Prevention, Anti-Spam, Compliance and Troubleshooting functionality for VoIP systems in a single device. The solution is targeted at IP PBXs, VoIP remote users, SIP trunks, data/voice VLANs, hosted VoIP services and IMS or UMA-based networks.

Sipera also runs a "VIPER" Lab that concentrates its efforts towards identifying VoIP vulnerabilities, and offer "LAVA" tools to verify networks' readiness to resist attacks.

The new financing was led by Duchossois Technology Partners (DTEC), and includes a full participation by existing investors Austin Ventures, Sequoia Capital, and STAR Ventures. The funding brings Sipera's total amount raised to $29.5 million.
