IT teams deploy inline security tools to prevent, block, inspect and protect their network, whether at the edge, data center or enterprise. Since these tools sit in the active network traffic, ensuring their performance and optimization is as critical as the tasks they perform. Active inline devices present a set of challenges, including becoming a single point of failure — leading to network downtime. Even deploying new inline tools and managing updates introduces risk.

Garland’s new EdgeLens® is a bypass TAP, network packet broker hybrid, purpose-built to provide the ultimate failsafe traffic management device to future proof your network. Eliminate single points of failure, manage multiple tools, reduce network downtime, cut deployment time and save money, without compromising the network.

Inline Security Packet Brokers, like the EdgeLens, are connected between network segments (router and switch or firewall) and active inline tools, like a firewall or intrusion prevention systems (IPS). Allowing you to monitor the health of multiple tools and effectively manage the devices through deployment, updates or troubleshooting. If your tools go off line for any reason the Bypass TAP functionality will automatically ‘bypass’ the tool, keeping your network up while you resolve the issue.
