Andrei Elefant, President & CEOIt is an ‘always-on’ digital lifestyle for the 21st century consumer. Communications Service Providers (CSPs) must supply subscribers with 24/7 online access and enhanced Quality of Experience (QoE), in a secured environment. To stand out from the crowd, service innovation and the ability to personalize the services on offer are critical to increasing customer loyalty and reducing churn. Security is also a growing concern: protecting a provider’s own network while offering security as a service solutions to users.
To deal with these challenges, operators are looking for the key to monetize their network and unlock the door to a wealth of new business opportunities to remain profitable. Allot Communications [NASDAQ, TASE: ALLT] provides the key to all these demands and enables its service provider and enterprise clients worldwide to analyze, secure, and personalize the digital experience.
“Allot enables CSPs around the world to capitalize on their assets: their network, their data, and their user base,” says Andrei Elefant, President and CEO at Allot Communications. “With our unique combination of a highly powerful service delivery framework and a range of flexible, value-added services, CSPs can increase their ARPU, differentiate themselves through an enriched, personalized, and protected digital experience for their customers, and thus increase customer loyalty and reduce churn.”

Some of the services offered on top of the Allot Service Gateway include:
• The Allot ClearSee Network Analytics, which provides actionable insight into the performance and utilization of an IP network.
• Allot WebSafe Personal, a simple to deploy and use, network-based Security as a Service solution providing anti-malware, anti-phishing, URL filtering and parental controls.
An example of how Allot solutions are effectively deployed is at Vodafone Germany, a division of Europe’s largest mobile operator. Vodafone Germany was looking for a simple, accessible and effective value-added service to protect all users regardless of device from Internet threats and harmful content. Deploying Allot’s WebSafe product family as a fully integrated service in the Allot Service Gateway enabled the operator to deliver a Security as a Service solution to consumers, SMBs and enterprises. In the words of Frank Vahldiek, Director Consumer Services at Vodafone Germany: “Our Secure Net service powered by Allot allows customers to use the mobile Internet safely and economically, all without impacting performance and battery life.”
Surging forward, Allot strives to remain at the forefront of service innovation by continuously enriching its products and solutions and applying their technology and know-how in different ways that enable CSPs to benefit from trends like NFV and cope with challenges such as cybersecurity. As the IoT gains momentum, millions of new endpoints will be sending small amounts of data to the network. Protecting the ‘network’ as well as securing the ‘things’ will be key to unlocking the potential benefits inherent in this trend. With experience in traffic management and analytics, and as the number one provider of Security as a Service solutions in Europe, Allot is uniquely placed to help CSPs monetize and secure the next level of the digital experience
