Power failures, bursts in traffic, essential maintenance, configuration errors and cable breaks can all lead to the failure of inline security layers. And the more tool-chained devices you have sitting inline, the more chance of something going offline.

What happens next is of critical importance, but without the ability to instantly put in to practice your pre-defined course of action, how can you continue to defend your organisation from cyber-crime?

 

 

Network Visibility adds significant security resiliency

If a security layer – such as an Intrusion Prevention System – goes offline, you need a pre-defined protocol to ensure your organisation and its critical applications do not go offline as well.

A carefully designed Visibility layer gives you real options to make sure all, or only specific traffic is instantly diverted to alternative security layers for malware filtering. This provides robust continuity and allows you to clearly focus your efforts to remediate the source of security layer downtime.

Visibility-with-IPS-failure

We design, provision and manage security Visibility layers that ensure many of the communication networks and financial transaction platforms critical to the UK’s infrastructure and economy remain online, secure, and just as importantly, have the resiliency in place to continue running smoothly when things don’t go according to plan.
