WebSafe service created for blocking illegal content online

Allot Communications : 24 November, 2009  (New Product)
Working with the Internet Watch Foundation in the UK, Allot communications has developed the WebSafe service for creating a safer internet environment and blocking harmful and illegal web content
Allot Communications has announced the launch of Allot WebSafe, a network service designed to block online illegal and harmful content. The solution is designed to protect subscribers by enabling fixed and mobile broadband service providers to build a safer and more protected internet environment. At the same time, it allows operators to comply with emerging legislation surrounding online child sexual abuse images and other illegal content. WebSafe is offered as an integrated service within Allot Service Gateway. It is also offered as a solution with other Allot platforms.

WebSafe uses URL filtering technology at the network level without impacting the user experience. This highly accurate technology is based on blacklists containing specific web pages, which can be automatically or manually updated to the solution, with no network downtime. WebSafe, with its opt-in/opt-out functionality can receive updates from external sources such as regulatory bodies or law enforcement agencies. In order to enhance the WebSafe solution, Allot has become a member of the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF), the UK's self-regulatory body for combating child sexual abuse images that provides data on online illegal content. The solution offers automatic updates of the IWF list, which happens twice daily.

'Combating child sexual abuse images on the internet is a global challenge. The websites are dynamic; often hopping hosting provider and country every few days and the internet industry's role in helping to disrupt them is crucial', said Peter Robbins OBE, QPM, Chief Executive of the IWF. 'We work with national and international partners and a diverse range of members companies to make internet a safer place for everyone. This partnership is about stopping networks being abused whilst protecting internet users from the results of that abuse.'

'WebSafe is the most recent value-added network service to be offered as part of the Service Gateway portfolio,' noted Andrei Elefant, Allot's Vice President of Marketing and Product Management. 'Allot is committed to creating solutions that appeal to both our customers and our customers' customers. WebSafe fulfills these criteria and allows mobile and fixed operators to stand out from the crowd by providing what their subscribers want - a safer and cleaner web environment.'

Allot Service Gateway Sigma (SG-Sigma) has 40Gbps of throughput and is the only DPI-based Service Gateway platform designed to meet current and future service provider requirements. It facilitates the fast and easy introduction of new value-added network and subscriber services, including WebSafe, MediaSwift, service tiering, quota management and self-management - services designed to reduce network TCO, increase ARPU and enhance QoE for subscribers.
