Ingate’s E-SBC is a crucial piece of the security puzzle for our customers
STOCKHOLM and STERLING HEIGHTS, MI (PRWEB) March 21, 2016
BSB Communications, a reseller specializing in virtualized solutions, has selected Ingate® Systems to enable and encrypt SIP trunks for a high security deployment with an insurance company in the US.
The installation, which replaced the customer’s phone system with cloud-based SIP trunking, also generated a cost-savings of $5,000 per month.
BSB Communications is using Ingate SIParator® Enterprise Session Border Controllers (E-SBCs) to enable SIP trunking between the carrier’s cloud-based SIP trunking service and their customer’s IP-PBX. The Ingate SIParator normalizes SIP signalling, making secure SIP trunking possible between any SIP trunking service and any IP-PBX. The SIParator also encrypts the SIP traffic, a necessity for businesses with a high need for confidentiality such as those needing to meet stringent HIPAA privacy requirements.
“Our initial system encrypts anything from the point of entry to the phone. The Ingate SIParator encrypts the SIP trunking service between the carrier and the IP-PBX. Ingate’s E-SBC is a crucial piece of the security puzzle for our customers,” said Bill Nutting, managing partner, BSB Communications. “Innovation is the cornerstone of BSB Communications. We are proud to be working with Ingate on this innovative deployment.”
“Using an Ingate E-SBC, calls made over SIP trunks are more secure than traditional telephone calls made over the PSTN,” said Ingate President Steven Johnson. “In this case Ingate employed both signaling and media encryption to ensure the most secure and private connection between the carrier and the BSB customer. The ability to encrypt calls is one of the ways that SIP improves on traditional telephony. We are pleased that BSB has chosen Ingate as its E-SBC partner.”
