Australia’s Exetel launches CCAPS

Exetel, Australia’s largest independent service provider has launched a connected customer assurance and protection service (CCAPS) based on technology from Israeli vendor Allot.

Exetel’s new solution will protect its residential customers against a broad range of cyber threats including malware, phishing and ransomware. The service will also provide parental controls via Allot’s NetworkSecure product.

The engagement between Exetel and Allot is based on a recurring monthly fee derived from the actual number of subscribers using the cyber security solution.

Glen Ward, Head of Residential, Exetel

Exetel Head of Residential, Glenn Ward, said: “We’re delighted to be the first Australian ISP to partner on cybersecurity with Allot, which already protects more than 20 million people around the world with this technology. The solution from Allot places Exetel at the forefront of threat protection which has become top of mind for customers given cyber attacks have become a day to day reality for Australians, particularly as more and more Australians work from home.”
