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.
