Don’t Choose The Wrong Network TAP

on 12/26/19 8:00 AM By | Chris Bihary | 0 Comments | Network TAPs Network Design
If you’ve previously read the Garland Technology blog, you know the importance that network TAPs have with regard to guaranteeing your network security and visibility. These devices provide a complete copy of traffic, passing data to your critical monitoring tools and applications. It’s essential to understand that not all network TAPs are made the same. From speed and materials to functional characteristics, do you know which TAP you need to protect your network?

What’s Your Palo Alto NGFW Deployment Plan?

A firewall is a network security device that monitors both incoming and outgoing network traffic, and based on a set of rules, decides whether to allow or block that traffic, protecting the network. Whether you are replacing a legacy firewall or adding an additional NGFW (Next-Generation Firewall) for internal security, a detailed deployment plan is required.

Failsafe Deployment of 100G Inline Security Tools with EdgeSafe Bypass TAPs

on 11/12/19 8:00 AM By | Jerry Dillard | 0 Comments | Network TAPs Network Security Inline Security Appliances
Today’s networks have become sophisticated defense mechanisms, architected with numerous inline security tools such as firewalls, intrusion prevention systems, web application firewalls, data loss prevention, SSL decryption and more. While the benefits of these active tools as part of your security strategy to protect your network are inherent, the simple fact that they are inline creates some problems if not addressed properly, as they are potential single points of failure (SPOF) in the network. The use of bypass TAPs, deployed with inline appliances provides failsafe and heartbeat technology to monitor the appliance’s health, eliminating the single point of failure, while providing complete network visibility.

Making a Case for Network TAPs to Provide Digital Legal Evidence

Sometimes we come across interesting requests from customers that are outside the normal security and monitoring applications within data centers or branch office locations. Recently, a law enforcement agency reached out to Garland Technology with a question as to whether our Network TAPs could assist them in obtaining sound digital evidence for a trial. This is a great example of lawful intercept, a scenario when a government law enforcement agency is granted legal means to obtain communications network data pursuant to lawful authority for the purpose of analysis or evidence. It’s a similar concept to the examples you see in movies or television shows where the FBI gets a warrant to tap the phone line of someone under a federal investigation, except in this instance, we’re tapping the network data.

Improve Network Packet Broker ROI with an Aggregation Layer

The aggregation layer, and thus the four-tiered approach to network visibility grew out of the need to maximize the ROI of NPBs and monitoring and security tools. Before we talk about the aggregation layer and the benefits it brings, let’s take a step back to see how we got here.

Capture 100% Full Duplex Traffic with RegenTAPs

With the rise in the number of monitoring tools enterprises are using to analyze their network traffic, a new problem has arisen; how will you get network traffic to multiple out-of-band monitoring tools? Garland Technology recognized the need for a Network TAP that would allow traffic from a single network link to be sent to multiple monitoring appliances to analyze the network.
