A Foundation of Visibility

Starts with Seeing Every Bit, Byte and Packet®

See every bit, byte and packetGarland Technology network TAPs provide 100% network visibility, while providing anytime network access. A foundation of visibility starts with network TAPs that feed your monitoring and security tools all the data - every bit, byte and packet they need to successfully secure and monitor your network.

Protecting your network with a stack of security and monitoring tools is a significant investment, however they are only as good as the data they receive. Dropped packets and over-subscribed ports leave your network blind to cyber threats. A Garland Technology network TAP will ensure your tools receive all the data for optimum functionality while extending the lifecycle of your network tools.

The Garland Technology Mission

Garland is committed to educating all organizations and individuals on the benefits of having a strong foundation of network visibility and access. By providing this education we protect the security of data across your network and beyond. Read more about network TAPs.

Guided by these two principals, Jerry began developing proprietary designs for network TAPs that are deployed in enterprise solutions worldwide. Jerry’s tenure as an Electrical engineer began designing military grade solutions for General Dynamics and Lockheed Martin.

Jerry is a pioneer in securing in-line appliances and invented the bypass TAP that continuously checks the health of in-line devices to ensure the integrity of traffic flows regardless of its condition.
