Sipera Systems' Solution Helps Enterprise Comply with PCI SSC Guidance on VoIP security
Sipera Systems, a provider of real-time unified communications (UC) enablement and security, announced its solutions streamline and simplify VoIP security for payment card privacy compliance, to meet the new PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) guidance.
As per the PCI SSC guidance, businesses that handle credit cards need to ensure privacy and encryption of VoIP communications carrying cardholder data. The guidance is expected to protect credit card and payment card information in telephone-based transactions, including VoIP.
These businesses need to control archiving and monitoring of these communications in compliance with PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) guidelines. Sipera's security appliance solution offers application-layer security for VoIP, enabling an enterprise to implement these important security controls simply and easily.
“Many in the security community have recently focused on VoIP and Unified Communications application security as essential for safeguarding financial transactions of all kinds,” said Adam Boone, vice president of Marketing and Product Management for Sipera Systems. “The new guidance regarding payment card privacy is a critical development in this area, because VoIP communications are widespread and are now a favored target of hackers and fraudsters.”
Sipera's UC-Sec can be pre-integrated and interoperable with enterprise VoIP infrastructure from all leading manufacturers. It offers application-layer security architecture for VoIP and UC in one simple appliance. The UC-Sec is designed to enable an enterprise to comply with the PCI SSC guidance on VoIP security, with these capabilities.
Recently, Sipera announced the launch of Sipera E-SBC Session border controller (SBC) appliance, a device for SIP trunk termination to include enterprise VoIP integration module for rapid installation and implementation. The E-SBC can be deployed in two hours for typical implementations.
