Sectéra vIPer Universal Secure Phone

Modern Secure Phone for VoIP and Analog Networks

The Sectéra® vIPer™ Universal Secure Phone embeds Type 1 encryption to ensure end-to-end protection and SCIP interoperability for secure classified communications. Eliminating the need for multiple desktop phones, the vIPer Phone provides the flexibility to support both VoIP and PSTN/analog networks, voice and data as well as clear and secure calling. In addition, the vIPer supports multiple key-sets for U.S. government sponsored interoperability (e.g., NATO & coalition). The Sectéra vIPer is the only NSA certified secure VoIP phone available for purchase today.
