Communications security provider Sipera Systems recently announced new functions for Sipera IPCS 310. The upgrade extends the company's protection of VoIP and IM to more environments, allowing enterprises, especially in the financial services and healthcare industries, to secure legacy systems and additional IP communications applications against attacks, misuse and service abuse.

Sipera IPCS 310 now includes multiple-protocol support protecting all VoIP assets in mixed protocol environments. It also features border control that enables enterprises to deploy SIP trunks and voice extranets, and extend VoIP infrastructure to telecommuters with the same signaling and media protection as internal IP PBX deployments. This function focuses on network address translation (NAT) and firewall issues enterprises face with external VoIP deployments.

The solution also has an expanded IM protection for IM spam (SPIM) and IM spoofing to protect internal and external IM communications. In addition to the existing IM logging functionality, this is especially applicable to the healthcare industry for HIPAA-compliant patient information, and financial services companies for corporate compliance of electronic communications.

There is also additional media protection to prevent threats that may be launched through the media channel after a VoIP connection has been established.

"For enterprises of all sizes and configurations, comprehensive network-level and end-user security is a prerequisite to deploying today's growing suite of collaborative VoIP, IM and other IP communications applications," said Seshu Madhavapeddy, Sipera president and CEO. "With these new features, the Sipera IPCS 310 allows enterprises to efficiently take advantage of today's real-time, IP communication applications without compromising the network's security requirements.

The upgraded Sipera IPCS 310 will be available this quarter.
