Sipera SLiC already is in use by multiple customers, including a Fortune Global 500 enterprise, which is using Sipera SLiC to securely offload millions of minutes in cellular usage to VoIP. This case study and others will be introduced when Sipera SLiC is unveiled during a special free webinar on UC Security: "The Final Frontier: Secure Unified Communications to Any Device in Any Place"; http://tinyurl.com/yfbaacd
"Secure unified communications on the smartphone will revolutionize enterprise communications, dramatically improving company agility and employee responsiveness," said John Lochow, President and CEO of Sipera Systems. "Enterprises can take advantage of significant efficiencies and cost savings of VoIP on the smartphone without creating unacceptable security and privacy risks."
As the smartphone market has exploded, hundreds of communication applications have been introduced that take advantage of WiFi and data services such as 3G, GPRS and other technologies. But these applications do not natively integrate into the enterprise security infrastructure, making it difficult for communications security managers to ensure communications privacy, data integrity, and other critical security requirements. As a result, employees are using unauthorized VoIP or other UC applications on their smartphones and violating privacy mandates and confidentiality rules, exposing themselves to eavesdropping, and increasing information security risks.
Sipera SLiC solves the smartphone security challenge by integrating the smartphone into the enterprise communications security infrastructure. The solution:
With SLiC, enterprises can ensure smartphone VoIP communications support compliance with FERPA, GLBA, HIPAA, PCI DSS, Sarbanes-Oxley and other government and industry mandates regarding control and privacy of information.
"As VoIP and other UC applications become increasingly practical on smartphones, enterprises want to take advantage of the flexibility and cost savings these devices provide," said Ravi Varanasi, Vice President of Engineering at Sipera. "As these devices crumble the enterprise perimeter, enterprises must ensure that communications with these roaming corporate assets meet the same stringent security standards that apply to other enterprise communications. Sipera SLiC makes it possible for an enterprise IT or information security manager to extend the enterprise's communications security posture simply and easily to the smartphone."
