Fail-safe Inline Protection for Network Monitoring The IntellaFlex Copper Bypass TAP combines an inline fail-safe security solution and intelligent network monitoring in one appliance to protect traffic flows and increase visibility.
Today’s escalating security threats continue to drive network operations to incorporate more inline security devices such as Data Loss Prevention (DLP), Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) and firewalls. Whenever any networking tool is connected in line, another possible point of failure is added. If the tool fails, it could result in significant network traffic loss and downtime.
The Copper Bypass TAP can be installed directly on the network and connected to any tool that receives live network traffic. The Copper Bypass TAP maintains high network availability by allowing traffic to flow unimpeded when inline security tools lose power, have a software failure, degrade in performance or require maintenance.
Load Balancing Supports Redundancy With load balancing across multiple IPS security tools, if one system goes down, the Copper Bypass TAP will redistribute traffic across the remaining systems. This results in minimal loss of network traffic and recovery would be automatic.
High Density Bypass TAP APCON’s Copper Bypass TAP provides five individual bypass TAPs to connect up to five inline network security tools in a single standalone unit. The five TAPs operate independently allowing individual tools to be configured, maintained or removed without affecting operations of the remaining TAPs.
Remote Management The WebXR graphical user interface lets the user monitor a bypass TAP, as well as the status of the attached tools and links. Changes can be implemented without having a technician on site. This is especially useful for updating security devices with the latest software updates and releases.
