Leading the Way in Network Technology

Lights, Camera, Security! Cisco Shines a Spotlight on Garland Technology With Threatwise TV

Posted by Jason Drewniak | 10/24/19 8:00 AM

The strong relationship with Cisco and Garland Technology encompasses a host of supported products. At this year’s CiscoLive in San Diego, our alliance laid the foundation for an interview with Jason Wright on Cisco’s Threatwise TV. Covering the latest developments in Cisco cybersecurity, this video series featured Garland’s extension of specialized products, focused on ensuring 100% network uptime and visibility. Our Regional Sales Manager, Juan Garza, eloquently voiced why Garland leads in the network visibility space. 

The purpose of a TAP is to gain full visibility into network links. Garland’s breadth of network TAP and packet broker technology retrieves packets from the network enabling a set of security application performance and network performance tools, which ranges from 1G Copper to 100G Fiber networks. Using Garland’s EdgeSafe™: Bypass TAPs, inline tools including SSL decryption, next-generation firewalls, and IPS's can mirror traffic to out-of-band tools.  

Innovation for an Existing Technology 

Network TAP technology has been around for a very long time and heavily used in a security infrastructure. As technology and lines rates continue to change, innovations are necessary to support growing speeds. Garland Technology not only brings a seamless customer experience with our Design-It solution, but also pilots innovative technology by: 

  1. Offering solutions that allow you to migrate your network from 1G copper to 10/40/100G to meet the needs of changing networks infrastructures. 
  2. Providing a modular set up that allows users to mix and match what’s needed, when they need it, so they don’t have to overspend during an upgrade. 
  3. Provide a packet broker technology to aggregate, deploy, and manage data, sending traffic to the right tool for the right application. 

Discussing the Garland Prism Cloud TAP

Garza also touched on our reaction to seeing movement to the cloud, since Garland Technology just launched a fully compatible Cloud TAP, Garland Prisms. This cloud native TAP can perform in public clouds like AWS, Azure, or Google, or used in a private cloud set-up. 

Garland Prisms uses SaaS technology in the cloud to send data to cloud tools or through GRE tunneling to on-prem devices in your data center. Garland can receive traffic in the cloud or in a private cloud and channel it back to packet brokers. 



In the words of Jason Wright: 

“As a Cisco partner, we’re grateful for the relationship and I know these are still important and still relevant to people who are deploying these technologies who want to get things out of band or aggregate into that packet broker fashion that you explained. Thank you so much for the partnership and we appreciate you.”
