Sipera Systems, a leader in real-time unified communicatins security, has been selected by Avaya for membership in the Avaya DevConnect program.

RICHARDSON, Texas – Sipera Systems, a leader in real-time Unified Communications (UC) security, today announced it has been selected by Avaya Inc., a leading global provider of business communications applications, systems and services, for membership in the Avaya DevConnect program.


Sipera is the developer of the IPCS VoIP/UC security devices, a product family that provides comprehensive threat protection, policy enforcement, access control, and privacy in a single, real-time appliance. As a result, enterprises can confidently deploy VoIP and UC over any network and to any device, while service providers can protect and quickly offer new IP-based communication services.


The Avaya DevConnect program promotes the development, compliance-testing and co-marketing of innovative third-party products that are compatible with standards-based Avaya solutions. Member organizations have expertise in a broad range of technologies – including IP telephony, contact centers and mobility applications – helping companies extend the value of multivendor networks and transform voice into an intelligent business application that delivers true value to the bottom line.


"Avaya compliance for the Sipera IPCS product family ensures that enterprises can apply comprehensive security, simply and cost-effectively for their VoIP and UC deployments," said Eric Winsborrow, CMO for Sipera Systems. "While we offer a complete security solution for Avaya IP PBX and SIP Trunking deployments, Sipera was promoted to Platinum status based on the value we bring to Avaya UC solutions for Teleworkers, enabling users to enjoy the full feature offerings of the Avaya 9600 Series and other sophisticated devices while teleworking at home and in remote locations, with simple and low cost deployment. Sipera's comprehensive security offering enables enterprises to confidently deploy Avaya Unified Communications applications, including VoIP, video, IM and other collaboration applications, securely and cost-effectively."


The Avaya DevConnect program currently includes thousands of software and hardware developer companies, integrators, service providers and customers. Members have created a broad array of innovative solutions tested for Avaya compliance, including natural language speech recognition applications, wireless services, specialized computer telephony integration and reporting capabilities, and applications tailored for specific vertical industries.


Through the DevConnect program, Avaya provides a number of tools and capabilities to member companies. One example is Application Enablement Services (AES) - a set of application programming interfaces, protocols and Web services that makes it easier for developers to create Avaya-compatible networks, devices and applications.


"With the involvement of companies like Sipera, our Avaya developer community has become a catalyst for rapid innovation - creating multivendor applications that help enterprises around the world unleash powerful new possibilities for operating more efficiently and effectively," said Eric Rossman, vice president, developer relations and technical alliances, Avaya. "We help businesses embed secure, reliable Intelligent Communications into the very fabric of their organization so employees and customers have ready access to information regardless of where they are and how they prefer to communicate."


As a member of the DevConnect program, companies have access to a wide range of support from Avaya, including technical resources and training. There are three levels of membership – Registered, Gold and Platinum – each entailing progressive levels of marketing and sales involvement. Free Registered membership is available to anyone interested in designing Avaya-compatible solutions. Gold-level members and Platinum members must meet rigorous Avaya criteria for customer satisfaction, product support, business operations, marketing and sales. Sipera is an Platinum member of the Avaya DevConnect program.
