BOSTON and OTTAWA -- BorderWare Technologies Inc. and Mitel®, respective leaders in IP security and communications solutions, today announced the launch of a combined solution based on BorderWares SIPassure VoIP security and Mitels 3600 Hosted Key System. The agreement combines robust technologies from both companies to deliver the new Mitel 3600 Security Gateway, and opens the door to secure, low-cost delivery of business quality VoIP services over public IP networks.
Powered by BorderWare, the Mitel 3600 Security Gateway is embedded with application layer security reducing the barriers to VoIP adoption by providing a truly secure solution for VoIP deployment over public IP networks that is more robust, less expensive and simpler to manage than standard industry solutions which operate at the packet layer. The Mitel 3600 Security Gateway securely enables and protects Session Initiation Protocol-based (SIP) and MiNET (Mitels proprietary voice protocol)-based VoIP signaling and transport, and sets a new standard of affordability for carrier and service provider markets. The solution is tightly integrated with the Mitel 3600 Hosted Key System and provides application layer security to protect against SPIT (Spam over Internet Telephony), Denial of Service, Unauthorized Registration and other types of VoIP attacks which would easily penetrate packet-layer security devices.
This solution significantly lowers the cost of entry for service providers wishing to offer business-quality hosted voice services for SMBs, said Doug Michaelides, vice president, Global Marketing, Mitel. The new Mitel 3600 Security Gateway delivers VoIP security at a fraction of the cost of more complex, generic session border controllers.
We see this as an integration of expertise, said Tim Leisman, CEO of BorderWare. Mitels expertise in IP telephony is well known and well regarded, and they selected BorderWare based on our 12 years of experience and expertise in IP security. Together, were delivering a hosted VoIP solution that is more secure, simpler to operate and radically more cost-effective for VoIP service providers.
