FierceVoIP Honors BorderWare Technologies as One of the ''Fierce 15'' VoIP Companies of 2005; Recognized for its Leadership in Securing Voice Over IP Communications

TORONTO and LONDON--(CCNMatthews - Sep 14, 2005) -

BorderWare Technologies, leading provider of messaging security solutions, announced that it has been named to FierceVoIP's annual Fierce 15 list. This distinction honors BorderWare as one of the top 15 emerging VoIP companies in 2005 for its leadership role in securing VoIP and for the release of SIPassure™, the first Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)-based turn-key security platform.

FierceVoIP, an internationally recognized email newsletter covering the voice over IP and IP telephony markets, evaluated hundreds of privately-held firms based on company vision, revenue potential, quality of deals, strength of technology, partnerships, and competitive market position. The Fierce 15 celebrates the spirit of being "fierce" - championing innovation and creativity, even in the face of intense competition.

"BorderWare is a major force in VoIP security," said John Edwards of FierceVoIP. "As security becomes increasingly important to providers, enterprises and end users, this fierce company is providing the products that make VoIP communications both safe and reliable."

Voice and data are converging and SIP has emerged as the dominant session protocol for real-time Internet-based (IP) communications. BorderWare's SIPassure is designed to secure and manage the dynamic nature of real-time SIP communications. SIPassure empowers enterprises to deploy real-time messaging, voice, data, video and other SIP-based applications securely and with confidence. SIPassure provides comprehensive protection against threats with a range of controls, including unique session profiling technology that prevents spam and Denial-of-Service attacks.

"We are honored to be part of the Fierce 15 as the award highlights BorderWare's emerging impact in the VoIP market," said Tim Leisman, CEO of BorderWare. "The adoption of SIP-based communications, such as VoIP, continues to grow as do the risks of deployment. Much like email, SIP-enabled communications are susceptible to a variety of threats that are designed to halt business operations. BorderWare is committed to making all types of Internet communications safe. SIPassure is part of our larger platform strategy designed to provide customers with easy management and security at the perimeter of their networks."

Attendees at the wVoIP 2005 executive summit in San Jose received a sneak preview of the list of winners at a reception held last night. The official list of all 15 winning companies along with descriptions about what makes them "Fierce" is available in today's special issue of FierceVoIP and on the FierceVoIP Web site at
