Vodafone Germany chooses Allot WebSafe Personal for web security services roll out
Allot Communications has announced that its WebSafe Personal system is powering Vodafone Germany’s newly launched Secure Net offering, a network-based security-as-a-service (SECaaS) offering for mobile users.
Through full integration with the Allot Service Gateway, Allot WebSafe Personal enables the communications service provider (CSP) to rapidly roll out value-added web security services including anti-malware and parental control that increase customer loyalty and generate incremental revenue. Vodafone Germany’s small and medium-sized business (SMB) and enterprise customers are also served by Allot’s SECaaS solution, which protects user endpoints and enhances business productivity.
“Digital threats on mobile devices are rising in magnitude and sophistication. Our Secure Net service powered by Allot allows customers to use the mobile internet safely and economically by filtering out harmful content and malware before it reaches the mobile device, all without impacting device performance or battery life,” said Frank Vahldiek, the director of consumer services at Vodafone Germany. “The Secure Net service is accessible from any Vodafone-connected mobile device and provides peace of mind to parents who worry about their child’s online activity or to users who fear viruses and phishing scams while surfing the web.”
Any broadband operator can deploy Allot WebSafe Personal in multi-tenancy mode, which allows consumers to customise their own security settings, or in a single-tenancy mode that offers a standard set of security features for all users. The service also offers on-demand reporting, enabling users to generate their own reports that outline online activities in easy-to-read graphs.
“Vodafone Germany chose Allot because of its best-of-breed network-based SECaaS offering, which is designed for ease of operation at the highest scale,” said Gary Drutin, the chief customer officer at Allot Communications. “Using our recent acquisition of Optenet, Allot is committed to enabling a safe and secure mobile experience for users around the globe.”
