Sipera Systems announced an initiative with Westcon Group to provide comprehensive VoIP/unified communications (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," Dean Roth, Sipera Vice President, Sales, Central US, said in a statement. "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."
