SOPHIA, France -- Allot Communications Ltd. (NASDAQ: ALLT), a leader in IP service optimization solutions based on deep packet inspection (DPI), today announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire the business of Esphion Limited, a developer of network protection solutions for carriers and internet service providers. Allot believes that the acquisition furthers its vision of offering value-added services on its new Service Gateway platform to help broadband providers build secure, intelligent networks.

Allot plans to integrate Esphion’s products and technology into its entire product portfolio, including the recently announced Allot Service Gateway, the industry’s first open, standards-based platform for broadband service control and optimization capable of supporting more than 20 Gigabits per second (Gbps) of traffic.

Network and subscriber security is a primary concern for broadband operators, which deliver high-quality, always-available access services to their subscribers. Esphion’s granular network and subscriber behavior analysis (NBA) technology provides an accurate way to detect the root cause for security attacks over 10Gbps communication links.

The integrated, self-contained, solution will allow service providers to extend Allot’s traditional DPI capabilities and policy-based Quality of Service enforcement with mitigation of security threats. This includes isolation and remedy of infected subscribers (known as botnets, generating spam traffic and other attacks) and Distributed Denial of Service (DDos) attack prevention. The result is a highly competitive security solution for the service provider market in terms of performance, efficiency, ease of implementation and accuracy.

“Carriers and ISPs see increasing value in having a purpose-built device managing their application and subscriber visibility, management and control,” said Mark Bieberich, Vice President, Communications Infrastructure Research at Yankee Group. “The integration of Esphion security threat detection technology into Allot’s Service Gateway is a clear example of a solution engineered to meet this growing market need.”

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
