Allot Wins Four Orders from Tier-1 Operators to Drive ‘SECaaS’ Offering


Allot Communications Ltd, a global supplier of service optimization and revenue generation solutions for fixed and mobile broadband operators and cloud providers, has won four contracts in the first quarter of 2015 to supply its Allot WebSafe Personal product, a carrier-class Web Security service that enables service providers and enterprises to deliver a safer and more protected Internet environment to their users.

“Viruses, worms, Trojans, bots, and other forms of malware are continually threatening devices and users’ overall digital experience,” said Yaniv Sulkes, AVP Marketing at Allot Communications. “Bolstered by the added capabilities gained from our recent acquisition of Optenet’s technology, Allot’s Security-as-a-Service offering allows providers to quickly and easily protect users, monetize network assets and increase overall customer satisfaction.”

The first two orders came from existing Tier-1 mobile operator customers in EMEA. These operators are expanding their SECaaS offerings with Allot Service Gateway Tera and Allot WebSafe Personal to enable rapid rollout of value-added parental control and anti-malware services. Allot’s technology will allow the operators to easily scale to the growing demand from millions of users for these security services.

A third order was from a new Tier-1 American operator customer that plans to monetize its security offerings by leveraging WebSafe Personal to offer SECaaS services.

The fourth order was secured from an existing Tier-1 operator customer in APAC that is adding WebSafe Personal to its Allot Service Protector deployment. The existing deployed solution is already being used to protect against high-volume distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks. The expanded security capabilities now allow the operator to comply with government regulation by filtering harmful content.

Allot’s growing portfolio of SECaaS solutions is specifically designed to secure web content at the enterprise and user level. Using best-of-breed security functions, WebSafe Personal allows operators to deliver services that:
•Provide a safe Internet environment, enhance brand reputation and reduce customer churn without impacting the subscriber experience;
•Enable compliance with government regulations against distribution of illegal content via real-time URL filtering; and
•Extend Internet access protection of enterprise and residential users to the mobile environment.
