Allot: 4 Contracts for Web Security Offering

Allot Communications announced that it has "won four contracts in the first quarter of 2015 to supply its Allot WebSafe Personal product, a carrier-class Web Security service that enables service providers and enterprises to deliver a safer and more protected Internet environment to their users.
  • The first two orders came from existing Tier-1 mobile operator customers in EMEA. These operators are expanding their SECaaS offerings with Allot Service Gateway Tera and Allot WebSafe Personal to enable rapid rollout of value-added parental control and anti-malware services. Allot’s technology will allow the operators to easily scale to the growing demand from millions of users for these security services.
  • A third order was from a new Tier-1 American operator customer that plans to monetize its security offerings by leveraging WebSafe Personal to offer SECaaS services.
  • The fourth order was secured from an existing Tier-1 operator customer in APAC that is adding WebSafe Personal to its Allot Service Protector deployment. The existing deployed solution is already being used to protect against high-volume distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks. The expanded security capabilities now allow the operator to comply with government regulation by filtering harmful content"
Recently Allot released Key findings of the Allot MobileTrends Report H1 2015:
  • Of CSPs who offer SECaaS, 60% charge a premium for it at prices ranging from $1 to $5 per month per line.
  • Security services are mutually beneficial for broadband users and service providers. Users perceive parental controls and anti-malware services as high-value, while CSPs can quickly achieve positive ROI from delivering security solutions with incremental pricing
  • Network-based security SECaaS create customer stickiness that can reduce churn rates by as much as 2.4% annually, which can cover the cost of deployment and operation on its own
  • ROI on premium parental controls and anti-malware services can be achieved in five to seven months (six months on average), with ROI reaching greater than 250% in 12 months.
