Ingate® Systems Named to the 2007 "Pulver 100"

Increasing Demand for Secure NAT/Firewall Traversal, SIP Trunking Solutions Helps to Secure Ranking on Pulver 100

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN and BEVERLY, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 12, 2007 -- Ingate® Systems (, which develops firewall technology and products that enable SIP-based live communication for the enterprise while maintaining control and security at the network edge, today announced that it has been named to the 2007 "Pulver 100" -- which is the IP Communications industry's premier listing of privately-held growth companies that represent the future of the IP-voice and video communications ecosystem. Ingate has been named to the list due to its leadership in developing innovative SIP-based traversal solutions, including solutions for simplifying SIP trunk deployments.

This is the fifth time Ingate has been honored with the Pulver 100 Award.

Ingate Firewall® and Ingate SIParator® products provide an elegant, cost-effective solution for SIP-enabling an enterprise. They solve the firewall/Network Address Translator (NAT) traversal issues with SIP communications. Since NAT hides private IP addresses from the public Internet, Ingate products enable seamless connectivity by matching SIP communications originating from outside a company with the appropriate internal IP address.

Being a firewall vendor, Ingate contributes with the highest level of security and control in VoIP and SIP installations. Ingate's SIP proxy technology allows for advanced filtering, verification and routing, as well as dynamic control of the opening and closing of media ports. Ingate products support encryption using Transport Layer Security and Secure Realtime Transfer Protocol (SRTP).

Ingate's innovative software modules help businesses maximize the benefits of SIP communications. Recently, Ingate introduced a SIP Trunking Configuration Tool, an installation tool that simplifies SIP trunk deployments. Ingate's solution automatically configures a user's Ingate Firewall or SIParator to create a SIP trunk deployment designed to the user's individual setup.

Additionally, Ingate offers award-winning remote connectivity solutions that extend the SIP capabilities of a corporate network to remote workers.

"The Pulver 100 is the IP Communications industry's first and foremost award listing, and it continues to grow in significance because companies like Ingate continue to spread IP communications via their Firewalls, SIParators and software solutions," said Carl Ford, Vice President of Content and Community for Pulvermedia. "We are proud to name Ingate Systems to this year's Pulver 100."

"Ingate is delighted to once again be named to the Pulver 100," said Olle Westerberg, Chief Executive Officer, Ingate Systems. "Ingate has been leading the industry in developing NAT traversal solutions and SIP-enabling technologies for the enterprise since the Internet Engineering Task Force first introduced the SIP protocol. We are honored to have this leadership acknowledged by such a prestigious award as the Pulver 100."
