Allot President and CEO Rami Hadar said Saturday that a Bloomberg article that alleged his company sold technology to Iran through a Danish distributor contained “a number of critical inaccuracies,” but added that the company was exploring measures it could take to better control the final destination of its products.
Hadar said Allot’s equipment is not designed for intrusive surveillance purposes, but rather for optimizing internet traffic for service providers. The equipment lacks and capability to analyze or extract knowledge on the actual content of traffic, he said.
Allot’s corporate policy is to comply with Israeli and non-Israeli laws, but the company strongly believes its equipment is not regulated by Israeli defense export laws, Hadar said.
Lastly, he added that Allot sells its products through a network of distributors and resellers worldwide, but that beyond contractual measures it has no electronic way to locate or disable its products after shipment.
