Allot Communications Ltd., a leading provider of security and monetisation solutions that enable service providers and enterprises to protect and personalise the digital experience, announced today it was selected by one of Russia’s top satellite service providers to optimise network traffic, protect against distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks, increase revenues, and support regulatory compliance efforts. With this additional deployment of the Allot Service Gateway multi-service platform, which includes Allot ServiceProtector for DDoS Mitigation, Quota Management and Allot ContentProtector, Allot’s customers in Russia represent approximately 70 per cent of the Russian VSAT market in terms of stations.
With Allot Service Gateway, the Satellite communications providers can expect to improve QoE, optimise network infrastructure, increase their revenues and comply with government regulation through:
Traffic Management to optimise TCP connections on each satellite hub, limiting heavy-bandwidth services like P2P and file transfer.
Bot Containment to enable endpoint monitoring for anomalous behaviour and the isolation of infected botnets that congested the network through outbound attacks and jeopardised satellite equipment.
Quota Management to facilitate the delivery of an improved subscriber QoE for certain services, even when subscribers are out-of-quota.
Content Protection to allow compliance with government regulations for dynamic filtering of hundreds of thousands of suspected or malicious URLs.
DDoS Protection to detect and mitigate zero day attacks whilst keeping critical network elements and the Satellite network services up and running
“Allot has significant proven experience in enabling communications service providers to extract more value from their networks and in helping them serve their customers better”; said Ran Fridman, EVP Global Sales at Allot Communications. “With Allot’s multiservice platform, CSPs get a plethora of capabilities vital to achieving the high level of service quality their customers demand and can benefit from improvement in QoE, as well as protection against widespread DDoS attacks”.
