UC-Sec security appliance is compatible with the Avaya Aura(TM) Communication Manager and Session Manager 6.0

RICHARDSON, Texas, November 29, 2010 - Sipera Systems, a leader in real-time Unified Communications (UC)
enablement and security, today announced that its UC-Sec security appliance
is compliant with the Avaya Aura(TM) Communication Manager and Avaya Aura(TM)
Session Manager 6.0, a solution from Avaya, Inc., a global leader in
enterprise communications systems, software and services.

The Sipera Systems UC-Sec appliance serves as a Secure Access Proxy node
inside of a UC architecture by providing a comprehensive UC security and
compliance solution for all internal and external UC end-points. In this
role, UC-Sec helps enterprises to securely and confidently leverage the power
of UC by making it ubiquitous, while reducing costs through access-side
network simplification. The appliance has been compliance-tested by Avaya for
compatibility with the Avaya Aura Communication Manager and Avaya Aura
Session Manager 6.0, which enables enterprise employees and teleworkers at
any location to be securely connected regardless of the infrastructure their
UC endpoints reside on.

"Avaya Aura Communication Manager and Session Manager enable faster and
easier deployment of voice, video, messaging, and presence communications,
helping enterprises boost productivity and business agility," said Andy
, Vice President of Business Development at Sipera. "Sipera UC-Sec
appliances serve as a Secure Access Proxy node, providing enterprises with
centralized security controls, and an increased ability to satisfy industry
security and privacy mandates for all their internal UC communications. In
addition, with UC-Sec appliances deployed, enterprises can securely extend
Avaya UC applications to decentralized teleworkers."

As a Platinum member of the program, Sipera Systems is eligible to submit
products for compatibility testing by the Avaya Solution Interoperability and
Test Lab. There, a team of Avaya engineers develops a comprehensive test plan
for each application to verify whether it is Avaya compliant. Doing so
ensures businesses can confidently add best-in-class capabilities to their
network without having to replace their existing infrastructure - speeding
deployment of new applications and reducing both network complexity and
implementation costs.

"Many enterprises are extending initial, internal VoIP installations, and
deploying voice, messaging, presence, video, and Web applications to their
entire global workforces. While they benefit from cost-effective, real-time
communications and collaboration, these enterprises must also ensure the
security of every application and communications device," said Eric Rossman,
vice president, developer relations, Avaya. "Sipera's UC-Sec appliances
complement the Avaya Aura Communication Manager and Session Manager, ensuring
enterprises can more confidently extend their UC infrastructures as well as
secure every internal endpoint."
