Content Filtering for Regulatory Compliance
Allot ContentProtector provides a carrier-class URL filtering service that blocks access to blacklisted and illegal content, enabling network operators to comply with regulatory requirements without affecting network performance or the user experience.
Allot helps you comply with content filtering regulations in the way that best suits your efficiency requirements – either by activating the content filter in Allot Service Gateway platforms deployed at network core and peering points, or by utilizing BGP and existing router deployments to block blacklisted content at the router node.

Easy Blacklist Integration
Allot ContentProtector is fully integrated with the official blacklist of the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) and its automated update mechanisms. Allot also enables fast integration of any blacklist or regulatory body.
Visibility and Reporting
A unified management console monitors and manages illegal content filtering across your entire network and provides detailed reports of filtering events. Real-time alerts notify you when content has been blocked. Affected subscribers may also receive notification and/or redirection to a captive portal.
Allot ContentProtector utilizes your existing router infrastructure to create content filter nodes that operate independently throughout your network. BGP routing logic is used to balance the traffic load while blacklisted URLs and DNS resolutions are distributed to each node in real-time. Blacklists may be applied to all users or to select target groups, allowing you to provide service to different countries or regions and to comply with their respective regulations.
Another deployment option is to simply activate the ContentProtector module in your Allot Service Gateway or Allot NetEnforcer platform to monitor all network traffic and to block access to blacklisted URLs. You may also display a customized information page to blocked users and redirect them to a captive portal. Works in harmony with other integrated services in Allot unified platforms.
