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.
