The Smart Way to Protect Users and Control Application Performance

Your business relies on employees and customers being able to connect and work productively with mission-critical applications at all times and from any location. The performance and efficiency of your network can be easily compromised by the ever-increasing demand for LAN, WAN and Internet bandwidth driven by cloud, mobile and video applications. Moreover, the growing use of BYOD and shadow IT have opened complex attack vectors for web threats to infect user devices, get into your network, and harm business productivity and viability. Allot Secure Service Gateway combines the functionality of Allot Service Gateway with our powerful web security and DDoS protection systems, to offer a single, scalable solution that lowers the cost of supporting your evolving requirements for application and user visibility, performance, and security.

Get the visibility you need to control application performance

Allot provides live traffic monitoring and usage reporting according to traffic policies that are mapped to your complex data center and cloud applications, giving you full visibility and control of application performance, web access, user quality of experience, shadow IT and web threats.

Protect users from Internet threats and enforce acceptable use

Allot helps you embrace and maximize the business value of cloud (web) applications by detecting and blocking malware, phishing and other web threats before they harm application performance and user productivity. Allot Secure Service Gateway also detects and surgically filters DDoS and bot traffic before it affects your network.

Full Visibility

Allot Secure Service Gateway helps you obtain a 360° view of the QoE that your employees, customers, and branches are getting from your datacenter and cloud applications. It sheds light on shadow IT, BYOD, and mobile app usage that might otherwise go unnoticed.  The same platform also includes comprehensive web threat and DDoS visibility, enabling you to understand and measure the impact of malware, phishing, and flooding attacks on your network.  Key visibility features include:

  • Layer 7 application visibility
  • SSL encrypted traffic visibility
  • Web content and web threat visibility
  • Real-time visibility into DDoS attackers and their targets in your network
  • User and endpoint visibility with L4-L7 QoE KPIs
  • Dashboard monitoring and analytics
  • Live, self-refreshing performance metrics reporting in a granularity of seconds

Granular Control

The highly granular visibility provided by Allot allows you to act with the same level of granularity to maintain optimal network efficiency and high application performance. Allot helps you enforce Acceptable use policy and prioritize applications that are critical to your business by providing powerful policy tools that enable you to virtually partition LAN, WAN and Internet resources so that users and applications no longer compete with one another for bandwidth and Quality of Service (QoS). Key control capabilities include:

  • Central and simple QoS policy management
  • Supporting hundreds of thousands of dynamic traffic policies
  • Automated QoS policy propagation to all deployed appliances
  • Asymmetric QoS policy synchronized in real time across multiple datacenters
  • Threshold-based enforcement (e.g., CER, live connections)
  • Actionable alarms

Web Security

Allot Secure Service Gateway combines superior application visibility and control with SSL inspection and web security powered by Kaspersky Lab, BitDefender and Sophos technologies, so you can prevent malicious attacks from threatening your optimized network while enabling employees and customers to use the Internet and cloud applications safely and productively. Key web security capabilities include:

  • Web Filtering: Assure safe Internet use and prevent employee exposure to illegal or inappropriate web content in the workplace. Set the URLs and content categories you want to filter; limit access to certain times of the day, enable unblock requests, and receive admin alerts on filtering events.
  • Anti-Malware: Prevent viruses, worms, Trojans, spyware, adware, phishing, and other malware from damaging mobile devices, infiltrating your network and causing loss of business data. Requires no action from users and no resources from their devices.
  • Risky Apps Control: Block or limit use of risky applications that are often a conduit for malware insertion, data leakage and circumvention of your security measures.

DDoS and Bot Protection

Allot Secure Service Gateway helps you neutralize volumetric DoS/DDoS attacks and neutralize outbound traffic from bot-infected hosts before they are able to impact network performance and business viability. Key network protection features include:

  • Inspection every inbound and outbound packet to ensure no threat goes undetected.
  • Dynamic creation of filtering rules and surgical filtering of DDoS attack packets without over-blocking
  • Detection of abnormal outbound connection activity and malicious connection patterns
  • Root cause treatment of outbound spam, worm propagation and port scanning
  • Elimination of the additional load these attacks put on your network
