Inline Tool Chaining

Financial Solutions

Challenge: How to manage multiple inline security tools

Our team is tasked with deploying and managing a growing list of security tools, including SIEM, logging, IPS, DDOS, encryption, firewalls, web application firewall and threat detection.

We are supposed to deploy all of these to two critical links within the core of our network. How do we deploy and manage all of these without creating multiple points of failure?


Financial IT teams managing multiple security solutions need an easy way to connect all of their inline and out-of-band tools, so they can effectively keep the network up and running but secure at the same time.

Chaining allows you to pass traffic through multiple inline tools, while being able to independently monitor the health of each inline tool with bypass heartbeats. In the case of failed heartbeats, you can manually or automatically move your inline device out-of-band to manage, update or optimize.

Garland’s EdgeLens line of bypass TAP packet broker hybrids, provides an easy, hardware base chaining solution, that allows you to plug and play multiple inline and out-of-band tools between multiple network segments. If one of the tools in the chain can't keep up, load balance to the other tools 1:1 or 1:N tools.

Bypass TAP “inline lifecycle management” allows you to easily take tools out-of-band for updates, installing patches, maintenance or troubleshooting to optimize and validate before pushing back inline.
