This CSP / ISP is a long-term customer of Allot, having deployed Allot traffic management solutions for nine years, for better visibility and control applying QoS for data traffic.
The customer approached Allot following a massive DDoS attack on their network, involving SYN, TOS and Ping floods. Although the operator had a DDoS mitigation solution in place from Radware, it was not sufficient to withstand the capacity needed to address the new threat of large-scale attacks. The customer was looking for a DDoS protection solution that could effectively mitigate volumetric attacks to ensure that network resources were protected and users’ service was not affected. The customer also needed a reliable professional service to support them during major attacks to prevent any direct or collateral damage to their business.
In response to their need, the customer was introduced to the Allot ServiceProtector DDoS Protection solution by a local partner of Allot who specialized in security solutions. As the customer was already satisfied with Allot and its products, it decided to trial the ServiceProtector in its network. Having already deployed the Allot Service Gateway Tera multiservice platform (SGT), it could easily and quickly enable the Allot ServiceProtector DDoS mitigation capability on its main platform. After trialing Allot ServiceProtector on premise, the customer was confident in the solution’s ability to effectively mitigate a variety of high volume attacks and address their need. Together with the Emergency Response Service delivered by Allot experts, it received exactly what it needed.
Allot’s solution is strategically deployed at a network level to provide robust security for the network. Allot ServiceProtector is activated as part of the Allot Service Gateway Tera multiservice platform (SGT). Allot inline mitigation inspects 100% of the network traffic and provides the industry’s highest capacity for an inline platform starting from 500Gbps per single unit and scalable to 4 Tbps in a cluster formation.
Allot was chosen by the customer because of the following combination of factors:
Network operators understand the importance of network security to ensure reliable and fast connectivity and consistent quality of experience for their users. Allot delivers this in a way that is flexible, future-proof, comprehensive and cost-effective, which helps to reinforce operators’ service offering and support the ongoing growth of their business.
