Allot Communications Ltd. has launched Allot Cloud Access Optimization, including a version with 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).
The Allot Cloud Access Optimization solution is available 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.
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,” noted Gartner, in a recent report. “More than 95 percent 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, the firm expects that virtualized cloud network services will replace at least 10 percent of the installed base of enterprise WAN equipment, up from less than percent 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 of 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.”
