Strengthen Security and Reduce Risk of Downtime
Network engineers and operations center staff can be justifiably concerned about how the inspection of live network traffic will impact network availability and application performance. Even popular and proven security devices are susceptible to unexpected power or port failures, traffic congestion, and configuration errors. These issues can increase latency to an unacceptable level or even cause security devices to fail closed, causing a self-inflicted denial of service. There is, however, a straight-forward and cost-efficient way to keep the network flowing during unexpected outages and also reduce the downtime associated with troubleshooting and maintaining security devices.
