Fail-safe, Production Network Security
The IntellaFlex Bypass Switch provides five fail-safe 1/10G optical bypass taps for in-line security appliances as well as support for load balancing, appliance redundancy and advanced network monitoring.
Protecting today’s network requires advanced security systems such as Intrusion Prevention (IPS), Data Loss Prevention (DLP) or efficiency gain like WAN Acceleration appliances, however the complexity and maintenance of these systems can lower network availability. The IntellaFlex Bypass Switch maintains high network availability including intelligent heartbeat by providing optical bypass when in-line systems crash, degrade in performance, require security updates or need maintenance.
The five network bypass taps can connect up to seven in-line appliances including load balance and support for appliance redundancy. For example a network could load balance traffic across three IPS security appliances, and if one system is down, the Bypass Switch will automatically redistribute traffic across the remaining two systems providing IPS appliance redundancy.
