RICHARDSON, Texas, October 18, 2010 - Datapoint Achieves Silver Level Reseller Status, Offers Sipera UC
Security Systems to Ensure PCI DSS Compliance in the UK and Throughout Europe

Sipera Systems, the leader in real-time Unified Communications (UC)
enablement and security, today announced Datapoint, a leading communication
systems integrator for businesses, has joined the Sipera Partner Network as a
Silver Level Reseller. By doing so, Datapoint is now certified to deploy
Sipera's UC security solutions to call center customers, supporting their
efforts to meet Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS)
compliance deadlines, set by major credit card companies throughout Europe.

"Depending on their customers, call centers face a number of
communications' privacy and security mandates, like PCI DSS for credit card
account holder information. While most call centers can ably secure data,
many are challenged to also secure VoIP, IM, and other business
communications, internally and externally," said Paul German, VP of EMEA
Sales at Sipera. "By partnering with Sipera, Datapoint can help its customers
quickly secure, monitor, log and archive these sensitive communications, and
satisfy different industry privacy and security mandates."

"In the UK, many call centers have been pressed to meet the PCI DSS
September 30 compliance deadline set by MasterCard and VISA. Likewise, across
Europe, others are applying considerable IT resources to secure enterprise
data and unified communications, to meet credit card, healthcare, banking,
and other industry security and privacy mandates," said Paul Brewer, director
of Technology Solutions for Datapoint. "Once these call centers realize
securing unified communications is vastly different from securing data,
they're eager to work with us, and apply Sipera's solutions. Otherwise, they
may face damaging repercussions by failing to satisfy PCI DSS and other
compliance mandates."

The Sipera Partner Network offers a three-tiered reseller program to meet
its partners' evolving needs and business goals. Each tier provides extensive
sales, marketing, and product support to help drive revenue and increase
momentum in the marketplace. With each partnership tier, resellers enjoy
greater discounts on Sipera solutions, additional economic incentives, and
customized marketing support.

Sipera's UC security appliances and services provide comprehensive
privacy, security and control across the range of enterprise UC applications,
including VoIP, video, messaging, collaboration and others. The company's
Borderless UC(TM) architecture enables enterprise managers to safely extend
UC over any network to any device, including office phones, home office
phones, remote call center agents, video devices, soft-phones, collaboration
tools, and smartphones.
