Sipera Protects WiFi Phone

Sipera Systems announced new functionality for the Sipera IPCS 520

RICHARDSON, Texas -- Sipera Systems, the leader in pure security for VoIP, mobile and multimedia communications, today announced new functionality for the Sipera IPCS 520 including a security policy framework, intrusion detection and prevention functionality and troubleshooting features. This enables comprehensive security for service providers offering revenue enhancing services based on Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) or Unlicensed Mobile Access (UMA) technologies.

“Service providers are leveraging the Internet to offer revenue enhancing services, utilizing WiFi dual-mode phones, which expose networks to new exploits and vulnerabilities. The Sipera IPCS products allow service providers to offer consumers and enterprises peace of mind through comprehensive security that operates in real time, and ensures uninterrupted communications,” said Seshu Madhavapeddy, Sipera president and CEO. “For service providers deploying IMS or UMA networks, the Sipera IPCS 520 now offers troubleshooting and IDS functionality in addition to enhanced application-layer security, which improves the subscriber’s experience with consistent, reliable and secure performance.”

With WiFi dual-mode phones, consumers and enterprise employees can use cellular networks when roaming, but also connect to WiFi access points and use VoIP, with the same device. To secure this service, the Sipera IPCS 520 serves as an IDS/IPS security solution at the service provider edge while the enterprise-class Sipera IPCS products are deployed in the enterprise DMZ, allowing secure integration of dual-mode phones with the corporate IP PBX. This complete solution thwarts VoIP exploits that are growing as dual mode phones and other VoIP services become more prevalent.
