Answer from the company website:

About session border controllers

Session border controllers (SBC) is a new category of network equipment that provides critical control functions to enable high quality interactive communications across IP network borders.

A "session" is any real-time, interactive voice, video or multimedia communication using layer 5 IP session signaling protocols such as SIP, H.323, MGCP or Megaco/H.248.

The "border" is any IP-IP network border such as those between service provider and customer/subscriber, or between two service providers.

The "control" functions span security, service assurance and law enforcement requirements.

• Security - protect service infrastructure and customer/supplier relationships from attack
• Service Assurance - guarantee SLAs, maximize service reach, enable new services, protect against service theft and minimize costs

• Law enforcement - provide legal intercept capabilities
