HOD HASHARON, Israel, May 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Allot Communications Ltd. (NASDAQ, TASE: ALLT), a leading provider of security and monetization solutions that enable service providers to protect and personalize the digital experience, today announced that its WebSafe Personal and WebSafe Business products, which are used by CSPs globally to offer Security as a Service (SECaaS), have surpassed the 15 million subscribers milestone, increasing by 50% in less than 6 months.

The increasing global popularity of Allot's security services is driven by Communication Service Providers (CSPs) looking to quickly and cost-effectively offer users value-added security solutions - such as anti-malware, content filtering, ad-blocking and other protection measures - that can generate revenue while safeguarding and improving user experience.

The momentous growth in recent months came from several sources, which the company expect will also drive future growth:

  • Mobile and fixed service provider customers offering the security services to consumer and business users, the latter being an important driver for the growth in some geographies.
  • The shift to term-based license agreements, which the company believes will continue to help drive growth.  
  • Ad-blocking - a new use-case which is becoming increasingly popular among service providers, being deployed to enhance users' Internet experience by blocking pop-up Ads, filtering Ads based on web categorization and additional techniques.

Delivered as physical or virtual network functions, Allot's SECaaS offerings leverage the power of network-based security to enable fixed and mobile service providers to fulfill consumer and business demands for a safer digital experience.

"Allot's security offerings deliver direct value to the customer and a quick path to revenue which are fueling our continued growth in this domain," said Yaniv Sulkes, AVP of marketing at Allot. "The success of our CSP customers validates our approach and underscores why Allot's SECaaS solutions are gaining traction around the globe."
