Inline Edge Security

Bypass Network TAPs

The First Line of Defense is Complete Network Visibility

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 NGFW, IPS, DDoS to protect and monitor.

Unlike SPAN/mirror ports, Bypass TAPs, also referred to as a 'bypass switch',  provides complete network visibility, by passing all live wire data to active, inline security devices. Bypass TAPs also provide fail-safe technology, while monitoring the device’s health. If your security tool goes off-line, the bypass TAP automatically ‘switches to bypass mode’ keeping your network link up while you resolve the issue.

Jerry Dillard, Garland Technology CTO, a pioneer in security innovation, invented the Bypass TAP.
