Garland Technology’s Inline Edge Security is the first line of defense for security threats and breaches by providing 100% visibility for security tools like firewalls, Intrusion prevention system (IPS), Web application firewall (WAF), Data loss prevention, Distributed denial of service (DDoS) protection, or SSL decryption to protect and monitor.
When architecting your inline security tools into your network, incorporating bypass technology is a fundamental best practice to avoid costly network downtime. Simply put, 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.
Jerry Dillard, Garland Technology CTO, a pioneer in security innovation, invented the Bypass TAP.
Bypass TAPs, also referred to as a 'bypass switch', not only provide complete network visibility, by passing all live wire data to inline security devices, Bypass TAPs also provide failsafe technology, while monitoring the device’s health.
