There’s a TAP for that.
There’s a TAP for that.
Palo Alto Networks Next Generation Firewall has a flexible deployment, meaning different methods of deployment will work. Our partner, Cloud Harmonics recently authored a blog for us on this topic.
In this demonstration video we dig a little deeper and show you how to deploy your NGFW in Vwire mode, which allows it to be active, in-line, while still invisible to the network.
I love talking with people and listening to what they say and how they say it. The IT world loves acronyms, tech terms and jargon, but what surprises me is that manufacturer’s, resellers, technology partners and end users all define terms a little differently.
For example, let’s dig into the difference between a Bypass Switch - and a Bypass TAP.
As if presidential candidates didn’t have enough on their plates defending themselves against their opponent’s attack ads, James Clapper has warned that they should expect to deal with cyberattacks.
The Director recently went on record saying that intelligence agencies “have already seen an indication” of threats and “as the campaigns intensify, we will probably have more of them.”
These predicted cyberattacks for the 2016 president election are now a network security fact. Besides the recent attacks of the DNC and Anonymous doxing attack on Donald Trump, who and what motives are behind this recent announcement?
It's hard to remember that the commercial firewall, as we know it today, has only been around since 1994. This was the first firewall that could monitor every layer of the OSI stack—a formidable obstacle to hackers.
With more and more network traffic moving towards the edge, as with cloud-based services and ever-expanding in-house app platforms, administrators must be prepared to introduce additional in-line devices to their security operations centers. Today, networks are shouldering far more traffic than the application firewall was first thought up.

The state of the firewall is strong, and the state of next-generation security appliances including firewalls and intrusion prevention systems is growing stronger. At Palo Alto’s recent Ignite Conference one of the main messages was Protect Everywhere - including your internal network, which is no longer safe.
Whether you are replacing a legacy firewall or adding an additional NGFW (Next Generation Firewall) for internal security, a detailed deployment plan is required.
Let me explain the benefits of Vwire (in-line) deployment and why Cloud Harmonics, the fastest growing distributor in the US has partnered with Garland Technology to educate, engage and enable the industry on this best practice.
