To draw the battle lines against cybersecurity threats, Allot Communications Ltd. (NASDAQ:ALLT, TASE:ALLT) teamed up Tuesday in the digital arena with Lifeboat Distribution to supply its flagship Allot Secure Service Gateway (SSG) to its North American customers.

The partnership will make the Hod Hasharon, Israel, company’s Allot SSG solution available to Lifeboat Distribution’s large roster of partners, customers and vendors.

"Our relationship with Lifeboat is very timely — cybercrime is now one of the largest financial criminal activities worldwide," said Aviel Sivan, vice president channel development and sales operations at Allot.

"With more reliance on connectivity, cybercrime will only get worse. Our granular DPI technology ensures robust protection against a rapidly evolving DDoS threat landscape and offers a new level of network bandwidth intelligence, giving resellers an opportunity to improve security posture and overall customer satisfaction," added Sivan.

The Allot SSG solution provides advanced network and web security to thwart malware, phishing and threats.

Lifeboat Distribution has more than US$417mln in sales in 2017. The company specializes in network and security as part of six core solution areas and has more than 250 vendors in their portfolio.

"We're bringing Allot's visibility, control, and secure solutions to the North American market to help combat the rise and size of cybersecurity threats, including DDoS attacks," said Brian Gilbertson, vice president and general manager at Lifeboat Distribution.

"North America is notoriously known for attracting cybercriminals and to this day remains a large target," Gilberston added. "Allot has demonstrated itself to be a world leader in this domain."

Gilbertson said the Allot SSG solution "has huge potential in this market" to better protect its enterprise and ISP customers while giving them "the opportunity to generate incremental revenue.”

Allot Communications' hardware platforms and software applications employ Deep Packet Inspection (DPI), which turn broadband pipes into smart networks. The company’s biggest customer is Vodaphone Group plc (NASDAQ:VOD), the European telecom giant.

Allot stock was down slightly to US$5.19 in morning trade, in sync with a broadly falling market.

<![CDATA[News - Russian satellite operator AMTEL-SVYAZ deploys Allot Communication’s service gateway to boost network security, streaming quality ]]> https://www.proactiveinvestors.com.au/companies/news/201446/russian-satellite-operator-amtel-svyaz-deploys-allot-communications-service-gateway-to-boost-network-security-streaming-quality-201446.html Allot Communications Ltd. (NASDAQ:ALLT, TASE:ALLT) announced Tuesday that Russian satellite operator AMTEL-SVYAZ is deploying its flagship Allot Secure Service Gateway (SSG) and DDoS Secure in partnership with Mandarin Solutions to maximize network security and quality.

By deploying Israel-based Allot’s traffic management and network security platform, AMTEL-SVYAZ is now able to boost streaming quality. It also blocks troublesome distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, which is a malicious attempt to disrupt normal traffic on a targeted server, or network by overwhelming it with a flood of Internet traffic. DDoS attacks utilize multiple compromised computer systems as sources of "attack traffic."

"Solving the problems of network protection against DDoS attacks and overloads enabled us to improve our quality of services," said Igor Ilinchik, first deputy CEO at AMTEL-SVYAZ. "The advantage of the DPI system from Allot is that it can be deployed on a virtual infrastructure. Thus, we were able to reduce the initial cost (CAPEX) and reduce the payback period of the system."

The Allot SSG solution also provides advanced network and web security to thwart malware, phishing and threats.

“We're delighted that AMTEL-SVYAZ can benefit from our unique blend of network intelligence and security solutions which allow service providers to deploy true multi-service functionality in a fully virtualized form factor. This reduces implementation costs for the project, all while delivering a superior performance," said Ran Fridman, executive vice president of sales at Allot Communications.

"Our granular DPI technology ensures robust protection against a rapidly evolving DDoS threat landscape and offers a new level of network bandwidth intelligence, keeping service providers firmly on the front foot when it comes to ensuring quality of service and customer satisfaction."

Allot Communications' hardware platforms and software applications employ Deep Packet Inspection (DPI), which turn broadband pipes into smart networks. The company’s biggest customer is Vodaphone Group plc (NASDAQ:VOD), the European telecom giant.

Allot stock rose 0.2% to US$5.21 in premarket trade Tuesday.
