UC/VoIP security firm Sipera (www.sipera.com) has raised $10 million in VC money. The money will go to “advance” its enterprise smartphone/VoIP/IM/video security systems.
All total, Sipera has tallied up $48 million in venture investments; new investor S3 Ventures lead the most recent round with prior investors Austin Ventures, Duchossois Technology Partners (DTEC), Sequoia Capital, and STAR Ventures also participating.
New funding is expected to help the company advance its smartphone UC security solutions and its UC-Sec enterprise UC security product family, as well as increase sales efforts overseas and to support an expanded reseller partner program. Some money is also expected to go to expanding its relationships with the “Next-generation communications ecosystem,” establishing new OEMs with UC vendors and supporting bundled VoIP and UC solutions from system integrations and communication service providers.
