Israeli-based security company Allot Communications has undergone a number of executive changes in the past couple of months, today announcing Erez Antebi as the company’s new CEO.
Antebi will be replacing Andrei Elefant starting Feb. 1. After 16 years with the company, Elefant will continue to work as Allot’s chief strategy officer.
Prior to joining Allot, Antebi spent more than 20 years working at Gilat Satellite Networks and most recently served as that company’s CEO. From 2003 to 2005, Antebi stepped away from Gilat to be CEO of Clariton Networks, a startup focusing on in-building cellular coverage. He serves on the board of multiple startup companies including LiveU, HiSky, NSL.com, and Effective Space Solutions.
In November, Allot announced that its board of directors elected Yigal Jacoby as its new chairman. Jacoby co-founded Allot and served as CEO until 2006.
The company also appointed Alberto Sessa as its CFO, replacing Smhuel Arvatz, who left to join application security company Checkmarx.
Allot integrates its security service with the products of big-name companies like Intel, HPE, Oracle, Ericsson, Huawei, and Nokia. Its main customer base lies in mobile, cable, satellite, and cloud markets.
