MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 27, 2006 -- Allot Communications has announced that Rami Hadar will assume the position of chief executive officer and president for the company. Hadar will take up his new duties immediately and join Allot's board. Current CEO and Chairman of the Board, Yigal Jacoby, will maintain his chairman duties and will continue to participate in the ongoing development of company strategy, vision and direction.

Hadar joins the existing management team at an exciting time. Allot has enjoyed tremendous growth in terms of revenue, company size and market awareness, and has taken this step to further strengthen its top management team.

"I'm very pleased with the addition of Rami Hadar and am confident that his experience and management skills will help us scale the company to the next stage," said Yigal Jacoby, chairman of Allot's board of directors. "His experience in the broadband space and ability to deliver new services will help solidify our leadership position in this growing market."

I'm excited by the opportunity to help Allot achieve its business goals and feel that my experience in this market will be beneficial to the long term strategic growth of the company."

Hadar founded and served as CEO of CTP Systems (micro cellular networks) until its acquisition by DSP Communications. Hadar continued with DSPC's executive management team for two years, and thereafter, the company was acquired by Intel.

Hadar went on to co-found Ensemble Communications, a pioneer in the broadband wireless space and the WiMax standard, where he served as executive vice president, sales and marketing. Following as CEO of Native Networks, Hadar was instrumental in successfully shaping the company into a market-driven provider of MPLS-based solutions to tier-1 telecoms and in orchestrating the company's ultimate acquisition by Alcatel.
