LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - September 30, 2010) -  ITEXPO WEST -- Addressing the growing demand for Enterprise Session Border Controllers (E-SBCs) among large enterprises, Ingate® Systems announces the new Ingate SIParator® 96 E-SBC and Ingate Firewall® 2960, two high-capacity products that enable secure SIP communications such as SIP trunking and Unified Communications beyond the protected enterprise network.

Ingate: Making Global Secure SIP, Unified Communications Possible
Ingate Firewalls and SIParators make SIP possible by solving the NAT and firewall traversal issues with SIP. They allow businesses to adopt and use SIP communications -- including SIP trunking -- to reach users not only within the local area network but outside the enterprise as well.

Ingate Firewalls provide full enterprise security for all SIP and data traffic. SIParators work seamlessly with an existing firewall to allow the traversal of SIP traffic through the enterprise edge, securing SIP traffic while leaving the firewalling of data to the existing security device.

The new Ingate Firewalls and SIParators are available now.
