Engineered to fit networks of all sizes, bypass switches from Datacom Systems provide fail-safe network protection, high-availability, and redundant security for in-line monitoring deployments.
Many of today’s security solutions are designed to sit “in-line” right between two network devices where you want to monitor traffic, such as a router and a switch. Placing a monitoring appliance directly in-line can introduce several potential issues:
Example of a typical in-line appliance deployment
In-line appliances create the risk of a single point of failure
In High Availability mode, a primary and secondary appliance is implemented with a bypass switch.
The bypass will swap between the primary and secondary appliance in the event of a loss of heartbeats or link. This allows the services provided by the appliance to be maintained even in the event of an appliance failure.
