Nasdaq-listed Allot Ltd., a global provider of network intelligence and security-as-a-service (SECaaS) solutions for communication service providers and enterprises, announced today that a tier-1 telecom operator in Southeast Asia, has selected the Allot Secure unified family of solutions to provide cybersecurity protection to its Small and Medium-Sized Business (SMB) customers.
The deal which was signed towards the end of 2021, includes the Tier I operator and Allot sharing recurring revenues generated by monthly service fees. Allot NetworkSecure is a network-based solution, offering zero-touch, clientless operation, requiring no application installation by the end customer.
With NetworkSecure, the service provider can offer its customers protection from cybersecurity threats, including malware, viruses, phishing and ransomware and can enable SMB customers to block inappropriate categories of web content for their employees.
“Part of this tier-1 operator’s commitment to enabling digitalization for their global business customers is a broad cybersecurity service offering. The Allot Secure solutions for small and medium-sized businesses will be a logical complement to those services. Now they will be able to offer cyber protection to their small and medium-sized business customers alongside their large corporate counterparts.” Weiming Li, VP Sales APAC for Allot
Allot Secure is the first platform to provide subscribers with a unified user experience for on-net and off-net cybersecurity and content filtering, including configuration, reporting and alarm management. The operator will be implementing NetworkSecure and EndpointSecure, two solutions in the Allot Secure family.
Rise in Threats
Cyber threats have risen alarmingly in 2021 and with businesses increasingly adopting digital, in the post-COVID era, small and medium sized businesses are increasingly facing threats such as ransomware attacks. Allot has an interface which provides branded alerts and reporting that help strengthen brand loyalty.
The NetworkSecure solution will be supplemented with Allot EndpointSecure, which ensures that the user is protected from cyberthreats and is prevented from accessing inappropriate content, as defined by the SMB customer, even when they are off the service provider’s network, the company said.
