Ingate Showcases SIP Trunk Solutions, Resources at ITEXPO West 2008

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - September 16, 2008) - INTERNET TELEPHONY CONFERENCE & EXPO -- Simplifying SIP trunk deployments, Ingate® Systems, which develops firewall technology and products that enable SIP communications for the enterprise while maintaining control and security at the network edge, is showcasing a wide array of proven solutions and helpful resources for end users, resellers, distributors and systems integrators to ease deployment of SIP trunks.

SIP trunks rapidly reduce telephony costs by leveraging SIP and eliminating redundant network connections. Ingate's award-winning security products -- the Ingate Firewall® and Ingate SIParator® -- make it possible for businesses to utilize SIP trunks and to do so in a secure manner. They also resolve interoperability issues between the Internet telephony service provider (ITSP), IP-PBX, and the enterprise itself, speeding time to deployment.

"Ingate's SIP trunk solutions are currently in place in enterprises of all sizes -- including smaller businesses, satellite offices as well as large enterprise networks," said Steven Johnson, president, Ingate Systems. "Our SIP trunk software offerings complement Ingate's security technology, building on that expertise to offer proven solutions to secure SIP trunks, the network itself and to simplify SIP trunk installations."

Ingate SIP Trunking Software Module

Ingate SIP Trunking boasts the advanced routing capabilities necessary for enterprises to connect to service providers' SIP trunks, employing Ingate's proxy-based traversal and security technology. It is a flexible solution that has demonstrated interoperability with leading SIP-based IP-PBX systems.

SIP Trunking Startup Tool

Ingate's SIP Trunking Startup Tool is a feature included with every Ingate Firewall and SIParator that automatically configures a user's Ingate device to work with the SIP trunking service of their choice. The installation tool is preconfigured to handle most IP-PBXs on the market.

The Startup Tool provides users with a drop-down menu listing IP-PBX vendors and ITSPs with which the Ingate Firewall or SIParator is interoperable. Users simply choose which vendor or service provider they'd like to use; the configuration tool will automatically set itself to work seamlessly with that vendor or service provider.

Ingate Enhanced Security Software Module

Offering an additional layer of security for SIP applications, the Ingate Enhanced Security software module features an Intrusion Detection System/Intrusion Prevention System (IDS/IPS) for SIP, making it possible to detect and protect against attacks based on the protocol. IDS/IPS protects the network against attacks targeting SIP devices on the LAN, such as SIP phones. Ingate Enhanced Security works hand-in-hand with Ingate's Firewalls and SIParators, further strengthening security for VoIP, SIP trunking and other SIP applications.

Ingate SIP Trunking Network

Ingate's SIP Trunking Network (www.siptrunk.org) serves as an educational resource on SIP trunking. This Web-based portal aggregates information from throughout the SIP trunking community in an industry-wide effort to educate enterprises about SIP trunking, to help simplify deployments.
