Software-only Versions Available for the Complete Ingate Product Range
STOCKHOLM – Ingate® Systems, a leading provider of Enterprise Session Border Controllers (E-SBCs) that enable SIP communications such as SIP trunking and Unified Communications beyond the protected enterprise network, announced today the Ingate Software SIParator and Ingate Software Firewall, new software-only versions of the company’s Ingate SIParator® and Ingate Firewall® E-SBCs.
The Ingate Software SIParator/Firewall offers the same security and SIP-enabling functionality found in Ingate’s hardware-based E-SBCs. The software can be installed on customers’ own servers (or integrated with IP-PBXs or media gateways) or used as a virtualized application and all of Ingate’s usual advanced modules can be added as required.
Available now, the Ingate Software SIParator/Firewall comes in a wide range of models to address the needs of small businesses and SMBs, large enterprises and everything in-between. The software-only E-SBC can handle from as few as five simultaneous calls, up to as many as 10,000, depending on the hardware used.
The software-only E-SBC is intended for IP-PBX vendors, system integrators and customers deploying a large number of Ingate products on their own hardware platform.
“The Ingate Software SIParator/Firewall provides a single-box solution for IP-PBX vendors and the channel community, who can now deliver Ingate’s E-SBC functionality integrated with their own hardware solutions,” said Steve Johnson, President, Ingate Systems. “The industry is moving toward software-based offerings as a means of consolidating existing hardware or maintaining a single hardware platform. This trend will continue given the growing adoption of Unified Communications. Ingate is pleased to offer a software version of the Ingate SIParator in response to this increasing market demand.”
Enabling Secure SIP Trunking, Unified Communications
Like all Ingate E-SBCs, the Ingate Software SIParator/Firewall enables secure SIP into the network to make trusted SIP trunking and UC possible. It works hand-in-hand with an existing network firewall to allow SIP traffic to traverse the enterprise edge. It can also be configured with firewalling functionality to provide enterprise security for all SIP and data traffic.
Advanced Security Bundled Free with Ingate Products
Intrusion Detection System/Intrusion Prevention System (IDS/IPS) solutions for SIP are bundled free with all Ingate models, including the software version of the Ingate E-SBC. IDS/IPS protects against attacks targeting SIP devices, such as IP-PBXs and SIP phones. IDS/IPS works in tandem with Ingate’s existing security features to offer maximum protection.
