Shares of Allot jumped more than 3% to $6.25 in Friday morning trading.

The tech company got its start in deep packet inspection, a method of data management, and has since gained ground in the network security space.

Allot offers its security services to telecom companies that in turn offer the services to their customers, thereby lifting the customers’ burden of personal responsibility for protecting their devices.

The company recently teamed up with computer-security giant McAfee Inc and Spanish telecom giant Telefónica SA (NYSE:TEF) to help protect the fixed and mobile networks of smaller-scale businesses. The coverage will include device security, extending to mobile and personal computers.

In its second-quarter results, Allot forecast double-digit 2019 revenue growth, expecting to reach the break-even point or profitability by the second half of 2019.

Needham analyst Alex Henderson echoed that profitability forecast back in August, upgrading Allot’s shares to a Buy from Hold with a price target of US$6.35.
