Improve Network Reliability With External Bypass Switches

IT teams need to deliver network and application services with maximum quality of experience, availability, and uptime. One way to accomplish this goal is to add external bypass switches in front of inline security and monitoring tools. These external bypass switches eliminate the pain of direct deployments of inline tools because they provide both automtic and on-demand fail-over capabilities with a barely perceptible impact to the network. Security tools placed directly in the line of data flow can be single points of failure for the network, even with integrated bypass functions.  

Read this solution brief to see how you can:

  • Eliminate single points of failures for inline device deployments
  • Eliminate downtime due to tool upgrades/removal
  • Reduce network risk with external bypass solutions that have higher MTBFs over integrated bypass functions
  • Create flexibility to add/remove inline security devices without network impacts
