Sep 25, 2008 (08:09 AM EDT)


BOSTON, Massachusetts, September 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Allot Communications Ltd. , a leader in IP service optimization & revenue generation solutions based on deep packet inspection (DPI), today announced the launch of the ServiceProtector 4.0, the first security product resulting from the acquisition of Esphion Limited in January this year. The ServiceProtector identifies malicious traffic and enables isolation of infected subscribers allowing legitimate traffic to flow unimpeded, at 10 Gbps speeds.

With malicious activities, such as Denial of Service (DoS/DDoS), Zero Day and zombie attacks, worm propagation and spambots, constantly on the rise, service providers are increasingly challenged to prevent damage to both their infrastructures and service quality. They are primarily concerned with keeping their mail service off the domain blacklists and preserving its legitimate standing.

Allot's ServiceProtector is self-contained security solution that enables service providers to control and reduce the operational and infrastructure costs involved in mitigation of such security threats. It allows service providers to extend Allot's traditional DPI capabilities and policy-based Quality of Service enforcement with mitigation of security threats.

"With the ServiceProtector in our network, we have seen a significant decline in the number of SPAM and other attacks and a dramatic decrease in the number of help desk calls we receive on a daily basis," says Dr. Viriya Upatising, Chief Technical Officer of True Internet, Thailand. "Allot's security solution improves our subscribers' Quality of Experience, and helps reduces our operational costs, " He adds

"Allot's ServiceProtector is a highly competitive solution for the service provider market in terms of performance, efficiency and ease of implementation - an essential extension to the company's 10G product portfolio," comments Andrei Elefant, VP Products and Marketing. "It adds another service to Allot's eco-system of application and subscriber-aware DPI based value-added services," he added.
