Allot's Kiwi buy a boon for Renaissance

Renaissance sees a chance to boost its Allot business after the IP traffic optimisation vendor’s agreement to acquire New Zealand network protection provider Esphion.

Renaissance has distributed Allot’s range for more than a year, and brand manager Kevin Swainson says it sees a lot of opportunity for expansion following the deal.

“Esphion already have quite a few high-end corporate customers here in New Zealand. It’s good for the overall strategy to take advantage of the technology Esphion has developed.”

Swainson says many corporates in the education market already use Allot boxes along with Esphion’s technology.

Israel-based Allot paid US$5.5 million (NZ$6.74 million) for the New Zealand firm. It says network and subscriber security is a primary concern for broadband operators, and Esphion’s granular network and subscriber behaviour analysis technology provides an accurate way to detect the root cause of security attacks over 10Gb per second communication links.

Allot plans to integrate Esphion’s products and technology into its entire product portfolio, including the recently announced Allot Service Gateway.

It says it will extend its traditional deep packet inspection capabilities and policy-based Quality of Service enforcement with mitigation of security threats such as isolation and remedy of infected subscribers (botnets generating spam traffic and other attacks) and Distributed Denial of Service (DDos) attack prevention.

“We chose Esphion based on their behaviour analysis technology, ability to scale to 10Gb per second, and positive reports we received from their top tier customer list.”

Esphion CEO Mark Edwards says its products have already been successfully deployed at major Asia-Pacific area ISPs and carriers.

“Combined with Allot’s DPI platform and world-wide sales organisation, we intend to open up new market opportunities for our… solution.”
