Sipera UC First to Achieve International Common Criteria Certification

Sipera Systems, the provider of real-time Unified Communications (UC) enablement and security, has 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.

Recognised 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 and providing application-layer security for UC, including VoIP, video, messaging and collaboration tools, in a single platform.

Additionally the product can provide enterprise core network security, including IP PBX protection, VLAN separation, and compliance enforcement, including forking of signaling 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.”
