Allot Ltd (NASDAQ:ALLT) has been chosen by semiconductor manufacturer Broadcom Inc (NASDAQ:AVGO) as the recommended vendor to provide a transition path from the discontinued line of PacketShaper network optimizing products to the Allot Secure Service Gateway. (SSG)

Broadcom acquired the enterprise security business of Symantec Corporation back in November, and the company opted to end PacketShaper on March 31 and concentrate its investment in the enterprise security software market.

That’s where Allot comes in. Under the partnership agreement, Allot is offering attractive financial terms and discounts on products replacement to help customers transition from PacketShaper to equivalent Allot products. The terms will be offered through 2020, the company said.

“We consider it a privilege to have been selected by Broadcom to offer our high-quality, feature-rich Traffic Intelligence and Assurance solutions to PacketShaper customers,” Allot VP of Sales Tomer Egozi said in a statement. “We look at this partnership as a great opportunity for Symantec customers who need continuity in their network management. I hope that we can make them feel at home at Allot.”

The Allot SSG, which runs the Allot Traffic Intelligence and Assurance Platform, provides comparable network efficiency with network visibility and control, with up to 150 gigabits per second throughput and 600,000 policies on a single device, centralized management, TCP optimization, inbound and outbound DDoS and Anti-bot protection and Web Security, including URL Filtering and Anti-malware protection, the company said.

“In multiple meetings with the Allot team I’ve been impressed by their commitment to the Traffic Management market and developing best-of-breed technology for their customers,” Broadcom VP of R&D Kevin O’Leary said. “Their dedication to customer service is equally impressive. I’m quite confident that any Symantec customers that take advantage of their rich offer will quickly learn why I think this is right for them.”
