IntelePeer Unveils First High-Strength Encryption for SIP Trunking Services

CoreCloud UC SIP Trunking 3.0 Delivers Secure Communications Over Existing Internet Connection, Eliminating Costly, Dedicated T1 Lines for SIP Trunks

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 16, 2012) -  IntelePeer, Inc., a leading provider of on-demand, cloud-based communications, today announced its CoreCloud™ UC SIP Trunking 3.0 service. IntelePeer's newest SIP trunking service for unified communications (UC) systems combines the voice quality of high-definition (HD) audio with the high strength protection of four kilobyte, public key encryption to secure SIP trunks.

"While SIP trunking continues to gain traction in the enterprise, there are growing concerns about security," said Diane Myers, principal analyst, Infonetics. "Strong encryption offers one effective approach for addressing these concerns, particularly for protecting SIP trunking routed over public Internet connections."

IntelePeer has integrated Transport Layer Security (TLS) and Secure Real-time Transport Protocol (SRTP) encryption to protect signaling and multimedia content and ensure the privacy and integrity of communications media. This enhanced security option reduces the need for enterprises to pay for dedicated data access, such as a T1 circuit or MPLS network for their SIP trunking connections, enabling them to securely route communications over their existing corporate data connections. Additionally, with IntelePeer's TLS and SRTP encryption capabilities, its CoreCloud UC SIP Trunking 3.0 service is the only secure SIP trunking offering in the United States that is qualified for Microsoft Lync™.

"For enterprises deploying unified communications, the focus has been on communications quality, reliability and reducing operational costs," said Margaret Norton, general manager, Enterprises at IntelePeer. "Strong encryption is increasingly becoming a priority as organizations want to ensure that communications remain private and secure even as they move to the cloud. By integrating the strongest, public key encryption available for commercial SIP trunks, we make it easier for our customers to meet all of their communications requirements for strong security, high quality, low cost, and superior value."

IntelePeer's CoreCloud UC SIP Trunking 3.0 is certified for all major hosted and on-premise UC platforms, and SRTP and TLS support is qualified for use with Microsoft Lync, with other UC platform certifications underway. Enterprises and channel partners deploying UC solutions can depend on IntelePeer-hosted SIP trunking services to deliver seamless, carrier-quality connections. IntelePeer SIP trunking services can be quickly deployed to accelerate time to value for Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and UC deployments.
