Allot Communications Launches Cloud Access Optimization Solution with Microsoft Office 365 Support

Cloud Access Optimization ensures high user quality of experience and productivity by visualizing, controlling and securing applications.

Online PR News – 12-February-2015 – Hod Hasharon, Israel – Allot Communications Ltd. (NASDAQ, TASE: ALLT), a leading global provider of intelligent broadband solutions that empower communication service providers to optimize and monetize their networks, enterprises to enhance productivity and consumers to improve their digital experience, announced today Allot Cloud Access Optimization, including Allot Cloud Access Optimization for Office 365 support.

Allot Cloud Access Optimization is a solution designed for enterprises and cloud managed service providers to ensure high user quality of experience (QoE) and productivity by visualizing, controlling and securing applications. In addition to delivering in-depth visibility into enterprise and cloud applications, Allot offers multi-tenanted control and security to meet required application performance needs and enterprise service level agreements (SLAs). Allot’s ability to virtualize and manage the access to cloud applications enables enterprises and cloud managed service providers to dynamically match cloud application performance with user and business needs.

The Allot Cloud Access Optimization solution is available immediately and offered at three levels: Essential – Meets the requirements of campus and branch office users accessing hybrid cloud applications. Secure – Designed for enterprise data center and campus users and for cloud managed services data center access. Advanced – Optimized for enterprises and cloud managed service providers that require security, scale, and integration with additional access security and monitoring solutions.

Building on the Allot Cloud Access Optimization solution, Allot today also released Cloud Access Optimization for Office 365, a solution that supports visibility and control for individual Office 365 applications such as Lync, PowerPoint, and Word. The solution ensures predictable performance and excellent user experience for businesses, particularly as an increasing number of organizations look to securely migrate their on-premise Microsoft applications to the cloud.

According to the Gartner report, Predicts 2015: Enterprise Networking and Network Services, published December 4, 2014, “Performance of public cloud services is not consistent due to the Internet’s lack of consistent, reliable performance.” The report goes on to state, “More than 95% of enterprise sites are still connected to the enterprise WAN using on-premises network hardware devices, which are becoming less appropriate for supporting today’s agile hybrid network environments. By year-end 2017, virtualized cloud network services will replace at least 10% of the installed base of enterprise WAN equipment, up from less than 1% at year-end 2014.”

“The access to cloud resources has become the weakest link in the delivery path from the user to the application,” said Yaniv Sulkes, AVP Marketing at Allot Communications. “Allot’s Cloud Access Optimization solution overcomes the performance degradation challenges associated with cloud application delivery by providing critical visibility, control, and security capabilities. This is a perfect example of how Allot can turn an enterprise’s access infrastructure into an application and user-aware resource that enables users to seamlessly connect with the cloud.”
