Sipera Integrates With McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator for UC Security Management

Sipera Systems has integrated its UC-Sec enterprise communications security solution and been designated as McAfee Compatible with the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) security management platform. The integration provides visibility of and control over the security of real-time business communications using converged IP networks. The joint solution allows security managers to block threats and enforce policies on voice-over-IP, IP videoconferencing, SIP trunks, collaboration tools, Cloud-based communications and other real-time applications.

Sipera's products are network devices that provide comprehensive security and application-layer control for real-time UC applications and SIP trunks. As a complement to the existing security architecture, the UC-Sec provides application-layer firewalling, intrusion prevention, threat mitigation, access control and policy enforcement in real-time for delay sensitive applications. Sipera's solutions enable enterprises to migrate mission-critical business communications to converged IP networks, SIP trunks, and Cloud-based service applications without increasing security risk or violating compliance rules.

The McAfee ePO platform lets enterprises and governments centrally manage security and compliance products from multiple vendors, offering cost savings and return on investment.

"Real-time business communications applications such as voice and video conferencing have migrated to converged IP network. Now the security functions of that network must adapt to these new applications," said Adam Boone, Vice President of Marketing and Product Management for Sipera Systems. "Together, the McAfee ePO security management platform and Sipera's groundbreaking VoIP and UC security solutions enable security managers to see and control the security posture of these real-time applications for the first time."
