Frost and Sullivan forecasts $8.5 billion worldwide in VoIP equipment spending by 2007. Customers increasingly expect security to be architected into their solutions. As such, ensuring the security of VoIP applications is central to the continued growth of this market.
With a commitment to delivering carrier-class reliability, and to exceeding the expectations of end-use customers, we continuously evaluate innovative new technologies that will further improve the reliability and value proposition of our products, said Robert Mimeault, Versatel Networks CEO. We have found that other solutions were cumbersome and couldnt come close to Third Brigades state-of-the-art technology in terms of simplifying and strengthening our security architecture while maintaining high system performance.
Third Brigade Deep Security is ideally suited to the needs of VoIP, telecom and other embedded applications. It was architected from the ground up for intrusion prevention, and is not intrusive. Deep Securitys optimized deep packet inspection algorithm minimizes CPU and memory impact to the host. Multiple filter types (smart, vulnerability and exploit) are organized into compact profiles that protect vulnerabilities in operating system and application software.
Third Brigade has extensive telecom industry experience, and understands the premium that leading carriers, and telecom manufacturers like Versatel, place on performance and reliability, said Wael Mohamed, President and CEO of Third Brigade. The quick, seamless integration of Third Brigade Deep Security into Versatels VoIP product further highlights the value of our host-based intrusion prevention software for VoIP providers.
