announces it has acquired Sipera
, a worldwide provider of Unified Communications solutions, including Session Border Control functionality and a range of UC security applications. Sipera will become a fully integrated part of Avaya.
Sipera strengthens Avaya's UC portfolio with a set of fit-for-purpose, enterprise-class SBC capabilities for SIP trunking that offers customers and channel partners flexibility, security and value. The company's open, standards-based solutions work in both Avaya and non-Avaya networks. Combined with Avaya Aura, Sipera's solutions will provide customers with secure VoIP, SIP trunks, videoconferencing, cloud-based communications, instant messaging, and collaboration tools for workers in any location using any business or consumer device.
Sipera provides application-layer security that is intuitive, easy-to-manage and can lower the total cost of ownership of UC and Contact Center deployments. Security features include a patent-pending remote worker solution that helps deploy VPN-less solutions and advanced toll fraud protection.
