Sonus Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: SONS), a global leader in secure and intelligent Cloud communications, announced today that the Sonus Session Border Controller Software edition (SBC SWe) was named a 2016 "Cloud Computing Security Excellence Award" winner by Cloud Computing magazine.

One of the chief causes of delay, or even rejection, of Cloud migration has been security. As customers move real-time communications to the Cloud, the SBC SWe provides a Cloud-optimized approach for security, delivering the same robust experience as hardware-based SBCs. The innovative solution acts as a real-time firewall for Cloud networks, protecting Unified Communications (UC) against data breaches, Denial of Service (DoS) and SIP-based attacks. Running truly in the Cloud - no proprietary hardware or physical digital signaling processors are required to support any of the SBC SWe's features, including encryption and transcoding.

Free Webinar:

To continue educating the marketplace, Sonus will co-host a webinar with AT&T and Heaving Reading on November 16, 2016 at 11:00 am ET to discuss more technical requirements for real-time communications in the Cloud. Live attendees of this webinar will receive a $5 Amazon® gift card for participating. * This webinar will discuss:

  1. How the adoption of a microservices architecture increases scale, performance and flexibility;
  2. How to leverage Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) for media transcoding; and
  3. The benefits of a complete Cloud solution.

Register here for the "Real-Time Communications in the Cloud - Dismantling Cloud Myths with Innovation" webinar.

"Security is a concern on-premises and in the Cloud, but the latter magnifies the situation," said Kevin Riley, CTO and SVP, Engineering and Operations, Sonus. "Either way, if a bad actor can access an organization through an unsecure real-time service, they can then move laterally into other mission critical areas of the business. Every application is equally important to protect and, with the SBC SWe, organizations can ensure their real-time communications are secure."

"Recognizing leaders in the advancement of Cloud computing, TMC and Cloud Computing magazine are proud to announce Sonus as a recipient of the Cloud Computing Security Excellence Award for its SBC SWe," said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. "Sonus is being honored for its achievement in bringing innovation and excellence to the market, while leveraging the latest technology trends."

Other Facts:

  • In an independent third-party test, the Sonus SBC SWe successfully handled sustained DoS attacks, high call overloads and registration floods with no negative impact on SBC performance or call quality. The SBC SWe also provided no loss of system performance at full endpoint capacity during a registration avalanche.
