Sipera Enhances Security on SIP Trunks

Sipera Systems has upgraded its IPCS security appliances to advance security for SIP trunking and better integrate with SIP trunk provider services. The Sipera VIPER Engine, the core security engine for Sipera IPCS appliances, has likewise been upgraded to more quickly address the latest vulnerabilities and threats, adding the capability to download security signatures automatically, and enhanced anomaly detection capabilities against zero day attacks. And, for enterprises adopting Avaya teleworker and mobile solutions, enhanced IPCS functionality allows them to simply and securely deploy mobile workspaces.

For enterprises utilizing SIP trunks to connect to their service providers, Sipera said it now offers additional Session Border Control (SBC) functionality. The upgraded Sipera IPCS appliances have been integrated with Tier-1 SIP trunk providers, and offer QoS reporting, enabling network administrators to monitor latency, jitter and packet delay for critical UC applications, and identify bandwidth spikes that might indicate an attack or other anomalies.

The new Sipera IPCS functionality to simplify the deployment of Avaya teleworker and mobile solutions includes:

  • Certificate provisioning proxy for improved access control;

  • HTTP/TFTP proxy for web services and configuration, and LDAP proxy for directory services, for faster and easier deployment of remote phones;

  • TLS/SRTP proxy for encryption, further ensuring communications privacy; and

  • Network, device, user, domain, and time of day granular policy enforcement.
