Press release date: May 8, 2009
Production-Proven Communications Solutions for Pandemic Planning and Flexible Workforce Management to Cope with Public Health Crises, Natural Disasters, National Security Emergencies
RICHARDSON, Texas, May 8 / -- Sipera Systems, the leader in real-time Unified Communications (UC) security, today announced the availability of a distributed workforce communications solution that enables enterprises to simply and rapidly establish comprehensively secure VoIP, Video, messaging, collaboration and other unified communications to a geographically extended and dispersed employee base.
The Sipera Business Continuity Communications Solution (SBCCS) is central to an enterprise's Pandemic Planning and Disaster Recovery strategies, and is available exclusively from Sipera and its partners. SBCCS is based on successful production deployments of business continuity communications in Sipera's customers in the financial services, healthcare, and education sectors, as well as Sipera's work with government entities and extensive experience with communications security best practices.
SBCCS enables an enterprise to extend rich, fully functional communications to any worker in any location with IP network connectivity, with full encryption, access control, policy enforcement and other security as required by statute or business best practice.
As a result, enterprises can plan for dramatically greater workforce flexibility and available in responding to public health concerns, such as the Swine Flu (H1N1 Virus); natural disasters such as hurricanes and earthquakes; national security issues; and other crises.
SBCCS is based on the award-wining UC-Sec appliances, comprehensive security appliances that seamlessly and simply enforce security controls on a unified communications infrastructure.
"Disruptive events like floods, pandemics, and workplace security breaches may be relatively rare, but in a global market, the odds increase that businesses large and small will eventually be adversely affected, if only for a brief time. Over the past 24 months, we've been working with several major banks, hospitals and school campuses to plan ahead for potential disruptions, primarily by enabling remote and home office communications," said Andy Asava, Vice President of Worldwide Sales at Sipera. "Our UC-Sec solutions enable and secure complete UC services at employee's homes and remote offices, without requiring anything more than existing office VoIP phones and laptop PCs. This enables ongoing business operations outside enterprise headquarters, to remote workers wherever they might be and whenever circumstances dictate staff should not commute to their usual workplaces."
Simplicity and security are the two highlights of Sipera's teleworking solutions, which require no configuration changes on IP-PBX or unified communication servers when employees are directed to work from home or other offices. UC-Sec appliances provide threat protection from Internet attacks through deep packet inspection, stateful communications proxying and management, and full application awareness. Privacy of all communications is ensured with TLS/SRTP standards-based encryption, for signaling, media and other services. Sipera customers are ensured of granular control of enterprise security policies for teleworkers, with flexible unified communication policies. In addition, Sipera provides advanced access control security features, including 2-factor authentication for especially security conscious businesses.
The Sipera UC-Sec products are comprehensive, real-time UC security solutions that simplify and protect next-generation communications over any network to any device. Dozens of customers around the world rely on the UC-Sec appliances to safeguard their communications and boost compliance with privacy laws, regulatory mandates and mission-critical confidentiality requirements. Backed by the extensive vulnerability research of VIPER Lab, the UC-Sec solutions provide threat protection, policy enforcement, access control and privacy in a single, real-time appliance.
