Sipera Systems and Westcon Deliver Comprehensive VoIP, Unified Communications Security Customized for Education, Healthcare, and FinanceRichardson, Texas and Tarrytown, NY, August 19, 2009 – Sipera Systems, the leader in real-time Unified Communications (UC) security, today announced an initiative with Westcon Group, Inc. the leading specialty distributor in networking, convergence, security and mobility, to provide comprehensive VoIP/UC security solutions customized for education, healthcare, and finance.
As adoption of VoIP and UC has accelerated over the past several years, the security needs around these deployments have become increasingly apparent, including the unique security and privacy compliance needs of enterprises in various industries. Sipera and Westcon are working together to provide rapidly deployable solutions for resellers addressing enterprise customers in these vertical markets. This new initiative was made possible by the existing distribution partnership that supports Westcon’s network of resellers and integrators developing solutions for target verticals using Sipera’s solutions and appliances.
“Colleges and universities, hospitals and healthcare agencies, and banks and other financial institutions are adopting VoIP, IM, video and other UC applications for real-time collaborative communications and cost savings. But each of these industries has unique security and archiving requirements, due to internal and external mandates,” said Dean Roth, Sipera Vice President, Sales, Central US. “Working with Westcon and its extensive network of resellers and integrators, we can jointly provide the customized, cost effective UC security solutions that protect users and deliver granular logging and archiving to satisfy records retention and communications monitoring requirements.”
Duncan Potter, chief marketing officer of Westcon Group, said, “As UC applications become increasingly widespread, it is more important than ever to ensure that information is secure—especially from a compliance perspective. Westcon has been working very hard to educate our resellers about the efficiencies that UC applications present, but also why it is so important to make sure these applications are secure. Sipera is a leader in this area and we are pleased to have them included in our SecurityPoint program.”
