Avoid Downtime with Intelligent Bypass
Application and monitoring traffic often passes through multiple security elements – firewalls, next-gen firewalls (NGFWs), intrusion prevention or detection systems (IPS/IDS) – which can increase vulnerability and obscure performance issues. With high speed and availability at a premium, Ixia's Net Optics family of iBypass Switches provides complete redundancy for inline security and monitoring tools, without adding complexity or new points of failure. The suite introduces the industry's first serial inline solution and delivers faster monitoring for higher bandwidths. During link, application, or power failure, intelligent bypass switches reroute traffic, effectively removing the inline tool from the data stream. The industry’s fastest heartbeat technology detects failures and re-routes traffic within nanoseconds, while redundancy allows tools to be taken down for planned or unexpected maintenance without bringing down the entire link.
eBook: The ABCs of Network Visibility
The concepts of network visibility, network monitoring, and network blind spots help you understand what is happening on your network. While some of the terms can be intimidating at first, straightforward definitions eliminate the confusion. Read this book, which is a compilation of blog posts from Ixia network visibility experts, to get a quick and clear understanding of the terminology associated with network monitoring. Over 20 terms are explained. In addition, examples throughout the text provide ideas on how the concepts can be useful to IT networks. See for yourself how easy it is to become a network monitoring expert.
White Paper: Plan Your Firewall Migration to Increase Security Resilience
If you will be upgrading or migrating to a next generation firewall, take the opportunity to also review your overall security architecture. You spend significant time and money to implement, maintain, and upgrade your security infrastructure. Make sure your security tool architecture is designed to maximize value and efficiency. Limit the risk of downtime to your network. Keep your applications strong. All these benefits start with the simple addition of a bypass switch. For more advanced architectures, add a network packet broker. This paper examines how you can achieve these goals and implement a resilient security fabric—one that delivers a selfhealing, highly-available security architecture to complement your next-generation firewall (NGFW).
White Paper: Ixia 360 Degree Security
When it comes to security, the industry focuses primarily on layers of defense against cyber-attacks. While a good defense is essential, it crumbles under pressure when not balanced with a good offense. Testing and training against realistic loads and cyberattacks before a product or service is deployed uncovers performance and security issues early. Prevent attacks from occurring in the first place and your operational costs will drop. Discovering vulnerabilities at earlier stages is much less expensive for both your products and your business.
Improve your visibility and security with an Ixia visibility architecture consisting of 3 design frameworks.
White Paper: IxVision Eliminating Visibility and Security Blind Spots
Every business relies on critical applications that are connected in some way. Business customers and users simply expect anytime, anywhere access to all these applications. IT’s challenge is to make sure the infrastructure that delivers these critical applications is reliable, fast andsecure. But this level of reliability, performance, and security can be a real challenge. It requires changes to the way IT monitors, manages, and ultimately controls the infrastructure used in application delivery.

Continuous investment is what drives today’s network security. Threats evolve rapidly so enterprises must add, maintain, and upgrade their frontline security multiple times per year. What was once a firewall now also includes a next-gen firewall, web-application firewall (WAF), intrusion detection and prevention system, forensics tools and more. You purchase security tools to protect your network, but what have you done to protect your tools?
White Paper: External Bypass Switches
Security is at a premium today for both the enterprise and the consumer. The consumer needs to trust the networks they use, and therefore the enterprise must make securing networks a priority in order to maintain business and brandfidelity.Inline security resources can themselves actually become points of failure and vulnerability. They bring concerns about network uptime, performance, operational ownership, security flexibility and overall costs. Despite redundancy and other protections, they must be taken offline for upgrades and scheduled or unscheduled maintenance. Further, if a tool loses power or becomes overprovisioned, the network link can break and traffic cease to flow.

White Paper: Creating A Visibility Architecture
Networking is a rapidly evolving and changing landscape. We’ve quickly moved from merely moving bits and bytes from workstation to workstation to providing powerful applications and services to millions of consumers. Speed and bandwidth requirements have grown exponentially, new traffic types appear daily, and now a functioning network is a crucial and necessary part of running a successful large or small business in any market.
Data Sheet: Ixia Net Optics iBypass HD
Ixia Net Optics iBypass HD (High Density) provides a 1U, high port density bypass switch solution for in-line network security appliances such as intrusion prevention systems (IPSs) and firewalls. Each of the two to eight segments operates independently to ensure link protection when monitoring up to eight critical network links at any one time. Individual and multisegment IPS appliances can be connected, maintained, or removed without affecting traffic through the links or the operation of the remaining segments. In addition, pairs of bypass switches can be linked in a high-availability configuration, where failure of one appliance results in switching the traffic to the other appliance.
Data Sheet: Ixia Net Optics iBypass 3
Ixia Net Optics 10/100/1000 copper bypass switches provide a permanent and trouble-free access port for in-line network security and monitoring devices. The bypass switch automatically switches network traffic through added in-line devices or bypasses devices that are about to be removed. Prevent link failure when attached IPS and IDS devices lose power by powering the bypass switch and in-line device from the same power source.
