Eliminate single points of failure

Bypass Solutions

Challenge: How do I eliminate single points of failure in my client's network?

Our MSSP team is tasked with adding IPS active blocking throughout our client's network on all critical links. Before we deploy these, we want to ensure we aren’t adding additional risk into our security strategy.

Inline tools designed to inspect and block threats in real time, such as Firewalls (NGFW, WAF), Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), and Data Loss Prevention (DLP), must sit on the live network circuit.

Because of this, deploying inline security tools create a possible single point of failure (SPOF) in the network. Should one of these inline tools become unavailable for any reason such as power loss, traffic congestion, or processing errors, it will bring down the link or even the network and create general connectivity problems on the production network. 


When architecting inline security tools into your network, incorporating bypass and failsafe technology together with network redundancy are three fundamental best practices to avoid costly network downtime, eliminating single points of failure in your network.

Incorporating a bypass TAP provides the ability to manage your inline tool any time without having to take down the network or impact business availability for maintenance or upgrades -- ensuring this inline security tool is not a point of failure in the network.

In the case of a failure, a bypass TAP offers flexibility to either bypass the tool and keep the network up, failover to a redundant link, or leverage an HA solution.
