Allot Adds Parental Control and Anti-Malware VAS

The DPI vendors continue to invest in the fast growing parental control market (see "[ABI]: Parental Control Market to Reach $1B in 2013" - here).

Allot Communications announced that it has expanded its Websafe solution beyond its previous single black list filtering to "WebSafe Personal. Fully integrated with Allot Service Gateway .. WebSafe Personal offers two flexible service bundles, which can be deployed together or individually. WebSafe Personal Parental Control allows parents to filter and monitor the websites and content their children view, as well as the amount of time they spend online. WebSafe Personal Anti-Malware prevents incoming viruses, worms, Trojans, bots and other forms of malware from infecting their smartphones, tablets and other handheld devices. WebSafe Personal Anti-Malware provides network-based protection against attacks and 24/7 signature updates, while requiring no action to be performed by subscribers".

".. Allot WebSafe Personal has already been deployed by leading mobile operators in multiple regions across the globe" (see "Allot Sees Growth in VAS Projects, Led by Parental Control" - here and "$6M Parental Control Win for Allot in EMEA (with Partner)" - here).

"Allot WebSafe Personal is a licensed software application that is fully integrated with Allot Service Gateway and Allot NetEnforcer platforms and can be hosted either on a blade in the Allot Service Gateway or hosted externally. Allot WebSafe Personal is NFV-ready and offers operators a pay-as-you-grow concept with the addition of software licenses".

  1. My husband and I use which helps to track on our child's activity online. We see his browser history and have access to his social media.Yet we didn't notice anything that can be dangerous for him or inappropriate so the feature of blocking the apps is not used.Hope we will never use it but you know how the Internet works now and what can be showed even on different adds.
