Network Bypass TAPs
for In-band Security

A Best Practice by Industry Leaders

Bypass TAPs are used to connect a monitored network segment to an in-band active appliance and monitor the appliance's health. If your appliance goes off line the bypass TAP will automatically switch to 'bypass mode' keeping your network up while you resolve the issue.

Bypass TAPs guarantee your security devices to see every bit, byte, and packet® and guarantee 100% network up-time.

  • Take your appliance offline without interrupting network traffic for updates, maintenance and troubleshooting
  • Supports breakout, aggregation, regeneration, and bypass modes

  • Available in portable, plug & play, 1U modular systems and customizable 1U and 2U chassis
  • Media conversion for 1G and 10G 
  • Jerry Dillard, CTO/Co-Founder of Garland Technology invented the bypass TAP
