Many security tools need to be connected inline on production networks to realize their full value. This means that all traffic must flow from the network segment through the tool and then back onto the production network. This introduces various operational risks and challenges including the impact of a failure of the inline device and the potential performance degradation as the volume of traffic and speed of the network increases.
A 10Gb stream of traffic will quickly render a 1Gb inline device over-subscribed and potentially obsolete. Gigamon® developed the G-SECURE-0216 Inline Traffic Distribution Node to specifically address these two challenges, availability and performance.
