HOD HASHARON, Israel, September 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Allot Communications Ltd. (NASDAQ: ALLT), a leading supplier of service optimization and revenue generation solutions for fixed and mobile broadband service providers worldwide, today announced the third solution in its suite of network-based security products, Allot WebSafe Personal. Fully integrated with Allot Service Gateway and based on its market-leading DPI technology, Allot WebSafe Personal enables mobile operators to quickly and cost-effectively deploy value-added, opt-in services that generate revenues while increasing customer satisfaction and protection. Allot WebSafe Personal has already been deployed by leading mobile operators in multiple regions across the globe.
Allot WebSafe Personal offers two flexible service bundles, which can be deployed together or individually. WebSafe Personal Parental Control allows parents to filter and monitor the websites and content their children view, as well as the amount of time they spend online. WebSafe Personal Anti-Malware prevents incoming viruses, worms, Trojans, bots and other forms of malware from infecting their smartphones, tablets and other handheld devices. WebSafe Personal Anti-Malware provides network-based protection against attacks and 24/7 signature updates, while requiring no action to be performed by subscribers.
With the proliferation of Internet-connected smartphones and tablets, online activity has increased dramatically, especially among teens and children. Armed with Allot WebSafe Personal, mobile and fixed network operators can provide parents with a simple solution for protecting their children's online activity. Allot WebSafe Personal utilizes both automated web filtering and human analysis to identify, classify and control access to websites, advertisements and content that parents view as harmful or inappropriate.
"Allot WebSafe Personal is a security solution designed to provide protection at the subscriber level. While the benefits to consumers are clear, WebSafe Personal also provides clear cut revenue generation opportunities for operators," said Andrei Elefant, VP Product Management and Marketing, Allot. "Allot WebSafe Personal enhances operator brand image by offering security services that are important to subscribers and also provides immediate revenue-generating opportunities by giving operators in-demand security solutions that add value to the network and can be charged for monthly."
Allot WebSafe Personal is a licensed software application that is fully integrated with Allot Service Gateway and Allot NetEnforcer platforms and can be hosted either on a blade in the Allot Service Gateway or hosted externally. Allot WebSafe Personal is NFV-ready and offers operators a pay-as-you-grow concept with the addition of software licenses. Allot WebSafe Personal joins two other security-based solutions in the Allot portfolio. The Allot Service Protector provides network-level protection, and Allot WebSafe provides carrier-class URL filtering designed to block access to blacklisted content at the network level.
