Optimal Network Security


Profitap Bypass Network TAP is an intelligent device that keeps the network link operational even when in-line security appliances become unavailable.

Placed in front of in-line tools, it represents a fail-safe solution that continuously checks their availability. Therefore, if the tools’ availability is compromised in any way, the TAP automatically switches to a bypass mode, maintaining the network link up until the issue is fixed.

Technical Specifications

Fail-Safe Bypass & Heartbeat

Designed to support active inline network security and performance tools, our Bypass TAPs make sure these in-line devices don’t become a single point of failure in your network. By sending heartbeat packets, they can accurately track if the connected device is operational.

In the event that the in-line device fails, either due to a hardware malfunction, power loss, or software problem, the 10G Bypass TAP fail-safe protection will keep the critical link up.
