October 26, 2016 – Hod Hasharon, Israel – Allot Communications Ltd. (NASDAQ, TASE: ALLT), a leading provider of security and monetization solutions that enable service providers to protect and personalize the digital experience, confirmed that its solution is used by one of the world’s largest mobile operators in Asia to manage its IoT traffic by providing comprehensive, scalable monitoring and control of IoT devices that safeguards them from misuse and thwarts DDoS attacks. Such tools can help prevent the large scale volumetric DDoS attack that took place in the USA on October 21, 2016, hindering Internet access and disabling access to many popular websites.
Using Allot’s network security solutions operators can identify abnormal bandwidth usage and secure its network from anomalies and misuse.

It provides both service providers and enterprise network operators with a solution that combines behavioral DDoS protection with granular traffic management capabilities that assures the highest level of service for legitimate traffic before, during, and after an attack.
