Altice Portugal’s MEO, the country’s largest fixed broadband and mobile service provider, has selected Allot Secure, a Security-as-a-Service (SECaaS) solution to protect mobile users against cyber threats and provide parental control both on and off-network.
The Allot Secure solution integrates network-based and endpoint security. The Allot Secure solution to be implemented by MEO includes the Allot NetworkSecure mass-market network security platform, coupled with endpoint security provided by Allot EndpointSecure.
The solution enables rapid mass-market user onboarding for cybersecurity that will protect MEO users anytime and on any network. Subscribers to the Allot cybersecurity solution will pay a monthly fee which is shared between Altice MEO and Allot.
Altice MEO will offer a security service to protect customers against emerging cybersecurity threats, including malware, phishing, ransomware and crypto-mining.
Traditional security add-on solutions offered by mobile operators never gained much traction because they rely on customers to install the protection themselves. Allot unified network-based and endpoint cybersecurity delivers device-independent end-user security, making it easy for operators to deliver security services directly to customers.
Allot reports that other telecom customers have achieved double-digit penetration rates with the deployment of Allot Secure.
NetworkSecure, part of the Allot Secure solution suite, is the market leader in the growing network-based, mass-market cybersecurity category, protecting more than 23 million subscribers globally. Coupled with Allot consumer marketing services, the NetworkSecure solution has been proven to achieve penetration rates up to 50 percent.
Tiago Silva Lopes, director Consumer Products at Altice Portugal/MEO, said: “We selected Allot to offer a mobile service that cannot be bypassed and removes the burden from our customers by protecting them wherever they are. This solution also enables parents to be worry-free about how their children are using their devices.”
Hagay Katz, VP Strategic Accounts, Cyber Security at Allot, said: “Our unified Allot Secure solution is a perfect fit. With our revenue sharing partnership, MEO can maximize their ARPU while strengthening their brand and increasing loyalty.”
