Sipera Systems Unveils World's First UC Security Solution Meeting International IT Security Certification Standard

LONDON, September 9, 2010. Sipera Systems, the leader in real-time Unified Communications (UC) enablement and security, today announced its groundbreaking UC-Sec solution is the first UC security solution to achieve Common Criteria certification, meeting the stringent international security standard for IT products.

Recognized by 26 nations around the world, Common Criteria certification represents a global standard for IT security and validates products and company processes through independent testing and evaluation. UC-Sec is now the world's only Common Criteria certified product for:
    - Terminating SIP Trunks on enterprise premises.
    - Extending UC applications safely and securely to any device in any
      location over any network.
    - Providing application-layer security for UC, including VoIP, video,
      messaging and collaboration tools, in a single platform.
    - Providing enterprise core network security, including IP PBX
      protection, VLAN separation, and compliance enforcement, including
      forking of signalling and media for monitoring and recording.
      
UC-Sec is certified to the EAL 3+ level. Common Criteria certification is often a mandatory requirement for government entities as well as enterprises that value security of communications and data.

"This critical certification reflects both Sipera's UC security market leadership position, and our commitment to providing unparalleled security for government and other security-conscious customers around the world," said John Lochow, President and CEO of Sipera. "By satisfying the government security assurance requirements encompassed by the Common Criteria, Sipera can assure its customers that our UC-Sec appliances have been independently tested and meet precise industry security standards."

Sipera's UC-Sec appliances proactively address security risks associated with UC applications such as VoIP, instant messaging, IP video and collaboration tools, enabling government agencies and enterprise customers to adopt UC applications and apply comprehensive security. Sipera's groundbreaking "Borderless UC" architecture enables all communications to be encrypted and compliant on any UC device, at any internal and external location.
