"FierceVoIP congratulates Ingate Systems on being named one of the Fierce15," said Dan Rosenbaum, editor of FierceVoIP. "By leading the market to SIP interoperability, Ingate is making SIP a viable, secure choice for enterprises."

The first Firewall was shipped in 1997 and the development of security products based on SIP started by the time the protocol was first issued by the Internet Engineering Task Force in the late 1990s. Ingate has developed a broad range of SIP-enabling enterprise Ingate Firewall® and Ingate SIParator® products that solve the NAT/firewall traversal issue inherent in SIP communications. The award-winning SIParator is a device that connects to an existing network firewall to seamlessly enable SIP communications. Both product lines offer businesses unique flexibility combined with complete support for SIP-based IP communications, such as VoIP.

Today, Ingate has expanded its offerings with different software modules to meet the evolving needs of growing businesses. The award-winning Remote SIP Connectivity enables employees to use the enterprise IP-PBX regardless of their location. The SIP Trunking module allows enterprises to connect their IP-PBX to a service provider's SIP trunk. Ingate's Quality of Service module sets priorities to different kinds of data, and the company's VoIP Survival module enables full VoIP redundancy in a SIP-based hosted PBX environment. Also, Ingate's Advanced SIP Routing module provides great flexibility and control of the SIP traffic.

"IP communications, and especially SIP, has transformed the way businesses do business in today's world. We work very closely with our customers to understand their needs and develop superior products that give them a competitive edge," said Olle Westerberg, Chief Executive Officer, Ingate Systems.
