Sectéra® vIPer™ Universal Secure Phone


Sectera vIPer Phone Trade-in Program

Shed Outdated Technology with Our STE Trade-In Program 

To assist users with upgrading to a more modern secure phone, General Dynamics is offering a new trade-in program available through January 1, 2016. Users that trade-in 200 or more STEs in a single order will receive $200 off each new Sectéra vIPer phone. Customers must provide the trade-in STE unit serial numbers at the time of ordering and must send in the destruction letters within 60 days of the vIPer shipment.

Contact your INFOSEC Account Manager for more information.



The Sectéra® vIPer™ Universal Secure Phone allows you to easily switch between making end-to-end secure and non-secure calls on Voice over IP and analog networks, eliminating the need for multiple desktop phones. The vIPer is the only VoIP phone certified to protect information classified Top Secret/SCI and below over commercial wired networks. In addition, the vIPer supports multiple key-sets for U.S. government sponsored interoperability (e.g., NATO & coalition).
