Today’s networks are transforming at an exponential pace with higher data volumes, faster network speeds and of course newer threat vectors. Now add to that the complexity that virtualized and public cloud environments bring. So how do security and networking professionals work together to provide the best security without impacting network performance? Oftentimes they are forced to pick one over the other.
To effectively monitor today’s network infrastructures, organizations are deploying a plethora of security solutions. Although this approach may seem best, it leads to multiple points of possible network failure, degradation of network and application performance, and a lack of scalability, to name just a few drawbacks.
One way to maintain network performance is to deploy a next generation network packet broker that includes an inline bypass protection solution. Inline bypass acts as a fail-safe access port for inline security tools, such as web application firewall (WAF), intrusion prevention system(IPS), and advanced threat protection (APT) solutions.
We have recently added key enhancements to the Inline Bypass feature in the GigaSECURE® Security Delivery Platform (GigaSECURE). Among these enhancements, GigaSECURE now supports flexible inline arrangements, which optimizes inline traffic flows for ingress and egress. With this improved usability, you can now:
Secure asymmetrically routed traffic by forwarding session traffic to the same tools regardless of network link.
With these enhancements, GigaSECURE enables organizations to take advantage of a resilient, scalable and simplified architecture that:
Now that sounds like something that will help security professionals sleep better at night.
