Sipera and McAfee Introduce Joint Security Management Platform

June 20, 2011

UC-Sec enterprise communications security solution, a product by Sipera Systems, a company in real-time Unified Communications (UC) enablement and security, is integrated and has been designated as McAfee Compatible with the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) security management platform.

According to a press release, Sipera and McAfee will present a free webinar on June 28 to showcase security considerations for enterprises that are adopting VoIP, SIP trunks and related Unified Communications (UC) applications.

 Adam Boone, Vice President of Marketing and Product Management for Sipera Systems said, “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, 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.”

Sipera's products are network devices that offer 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. 

The Sipera security systems were compatibility tested within the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance program that helps accelerate the development of interoperable security products and simplifies the integration of these products within complex customer environments.

Ed Barry, vice president of the Security Innovation Alliance, McAfee said, “Our joint solution ensures that real-time applications such as VoIP, video conferencing, and collaboration tools can be monitored and tracked via McAfee ePO dashboards, thus providing administrators greater control and nimbleness in a cost-effective manner.”
