Why should I replace my PacketShaper with Allot SSG, Traffic Intelligence and Assurance Platform?

With this replacement you will retain network efficiency with all existing visibility and control functionalities, and you will gain additional key capabilities such as:

  • Superior performance of up to 150 Gbps throughput & 600,000 policies in one device for easy scalability of all IT and network needs.
  • Centralized management including provisioning of policies to distributed deployments for improved productivity through reduction of duplicated efforts.
  • Service assurance with embedded inbound and outbound DDoS protection to safeguard reputation and business critical applications.
  • TCP optimization to mitigate latency and maximize Quality of Experience (QoE).
  • Web security with Secure Web Gateway services such as URL filtering and antimalware.
