Just In: Sipera Launches VoIP Security Product
TMCnet VoIP Minute Watch Columnist
Sipera Systems Inc. today announced that it launched Sipera IPCS 310, a security system that zaps VoIP DoS/DDoS attacks, stealth, spoofing and spam. The device monitors VoIP traffic, detects anomalies in traffic and call patterns and identifies threats to protect end-user devices and network infrastructures against attacks, misuse and service abuse. The system works for enterprises with up to 1000 users.
"Mission-critical communications applications such as voice telephony are migrating to IP networks for cost savings and increased collaboration. At the same time, the openness that comes with these IP networks can be exploited to launch malicious attacks and cause service abuse. Sipera provides a comprehensive security system for enterprises that have embraced the transformation to IP communications by protecting these applications against DoS/DDoS attacks, stealth, spoofing, and VoIP SPAM, while allowing legitimate calls to be processed at the same time," said Seshu Madhavapeddy, Sipera president and CEO.
The Sipera IPCS 310 features real-time monitoring and protection, including secure key management and wire speed encryption/decryption. The system is able to decrypt TLS/SRTP in real-time. IPCS 310 also features behavior learning algorithms for traffic and subscriber call patterns. This automatic system detects anomalies, verifies the source using methods such as sender intention verification and VoIP Turing tests and protects against multiple threats while reducing false positive and negatives. IPCS 310 also features network-level intelligence which correlates events in real-time from different parts of the network for immediate protection of elements against distributed attacks; and automatic and user controlled handling of VoIP SPAM.
The VoIP Minute Watch had the opportunity to speak to Brendan Ziolo, Sipera's director of marketing, and Micaela Giuhat, Sipera's VP of product line management about today's launch. They told us that the product has been already successfully deployed by Goldsmith-Agio-Helms, a private investment banking firm with offices in Minneapolis, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and London. The firm is currently using the system for IM logging, VoIP and Video conferencing.
