Sipera introduces new enterprise VoIP security toolset

 Most major VoIP-centered conferences see a fair amount of announcements for new products and services. An exhibit floor walk also helps clarify and reinforce what's interesting.

The VoiceCon show I am now attending here in San Francisco is heavily oriented toward enterprise (as opposed to consumer) VoIP. Natural, then, that what I'm finding might be of key interest to enterprise readers.

In one of the more important unveilings here, Sipera Systems announced a security and analysis toolset called Sipera VIPER Services. Its comprised of three components:

Vulnerability Analysis- which examines VoIP devices, infrastructure and applications, and then posting potential entry points for attack;

Risk Assessment- A color-coded reports on threats, with codes based on asset value and likelihood of exploit;

Penetration Testing- Launching simulated attacks in a controlled environment such as an isolated section of a network or even a lab setting.

Each phase generates a report, as well as what Sipera terms "remediation recommendations."
