Wick Extend Security Funcionality

Distributor Wick Hill has announced the availability of Sipera’s award-winning UC-Sec enterprise communications security solution, integrated with and designated as McAfee Compatible with the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) security management platform.

The integration gives IT security managers unprecedented visibility of and control over the security of realtime business communications using converged IP networks. Now security managers can block threats and enforce policies on voice-over-IP, IP videoconferencing, SIP trunks, collaboration tools, Cloud-based communications and other real-time applications.

Sipera’s products are network devices that provide comprehensive security and application-layer control for real-time UC applications and SIP trunks. As a complement to the existing security architecture, the UC-Sec provides application-layer firewalling, intrusion prevention, threat mitigation, access control and policy enforcement in real-time for delay sensitive applications.

Sipera’s solutions enable enterprises to migrate mission-critical business communications to converged IP networks, SIP trunks, and Cloud-based service applications without increasing security risk or violating compliance rules.

The McAfee ePO platform lets enterprises and governments centrally manage security and compliance products from multiple vendors, offering cost savings and return on investment. With more than 40,000 organizations managing over 60 million PCs and servers, this unique platform is helping McAfee Security Innovation Alliance partners to extend their reach and create complementary functionality.

The Sipera security systems were compatibility tested within the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance program, which helps accelerate the development of interoperable security products and simplifies the integration of these products within complex customer environments.

“Real-time business communications applications such as voice and video conferencing have migrated to converged IP network. Now the security functions of that network must adapt to these new applications,” said Adam Boone, Vice President of Marketing and Product Management for Sipera Systems. “Together, the McAfee ePO security management platform and Sipera’s groundbreaking VoIP and UC security solutions enable security managers to see and control the security posture of these real-time applications for the first time.”

“We’re pleased that the Sipera Systems UC-Sec enterprise communications security solution has been deemed a McAfee Compatible solution with the McAfee ePO platform,” said Ed Barry, vice president of the Security Innovatio Alliance, McAfee. “Our joint solution ensures that real-time applications such as VoIP, video conferencing, and collaboration tools can be monitored and tracked via McAfee ePO dashboards, thus providing administrators greater control and nimbleness in a cost-effective manner.”
