BorderWare Technologies Inc this week released a firewall appliance aimed at securing the session initiation protocol, SIP, which is expected to be a significant protocol in the emerging world of voice over IP.
The company said that the new SIPassure gateway can protect against threats such as denial-of-service attacks, number spoofing, and the remote compromise of VoIP phones. It’s designed to work alongside IP PBXs from the likes of Avaya and Cisco.
All the bad things you see in email today in the email world are almost always applicable to the VoIP world, said BorderWare’s chief marketing officer, Albert Behr. These threats will become more prevalent as VoIP does, he said.
