Protection from Threats, Intrusions and Attacks, Plus Regulatory Compliance Support

The Cisco Systems and Net Optics partnership delivers to customers a highly reliable and transparent threat prevention solution. In a high-availability network, the loss of a single device or power source must not be allowed to disrupt network connectivity. At the same time, adding a network security device to protect the network should not introduce a single point of failure. By combining Cisco’s growing spectrum of industry-leading Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPSs) with Net Optics’ rich array of Bypass Switches provides the security of accurate, comprehensive threat prevention—transparently and without reducing reliability. http://www.netoptics.com

  1. 1. Partner I Solution Brief Cisco IPS Solutions and Net Optics Protection from Threats, Intrusions and Attacks, Plus Regulatory Compliance Support reliable and transparent threat prevention solution. In a high-availability network, Highly Reliable, Comprehensive and Transparent Threat Prevention the loss of a single device or power source must not be allowed to disrupt • Network-level, end-to-end outbreak and loss protection • Granular policy control of applications and content with Net Optics’ rich array of Bypass Switches provides the security of accurate, • Wide range of deployment options comprehensive threat prevention—transparently and without reducing reliability. • Defense against power, link, or application failure The Cisco Systems and Net Optics partnership delivers to customers a highly network connectivity. At the same time, adding a network security device to protect the network should not introduce a single point of failure. By combining Cisco’s growing spectrum of industry-leading Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPSs) Cisco’s proven range of IPS solutions, along with Net Optics’ pioneering leadership in Bypass technology make for a solid wall of protection against proliferating A Powerful Regulatory Compliance Resource threats. Now, customers can be confident in having the combined vigilance of • Accurate coverage across PCI-DDS, HIPAA, SOX, GLBA, FISMA and more • Constant updating to reflect most recent regulations firewall, VPN and optional content security. Protection ranges from smaller • Simplified management businesses to large global enterprise networks at the Internet edge, campus • Comprehensive security and compliance architecture two trusted leaders safeguarding their critical networks and applications. In addition, next-generation IPS solutions can now be deployed with complete transparency, while delivering full protection. Cisco’s wide range of IPSs includes and data center. The comprehensive range of form factors, plus a growing cohort of new solutions offer unrivaled options for meeting a company’s specific challenges. Net Optics Bypass Switches Whether deployed in Layer-3 mode, Layer-2 mode, or Virtual-Wire (Layer-1), Cisco IPSs are highly resilient, with redundant power supplies. However, in the event of an unplanned outage or scheduled maintenance, Net Optics Bypass Switches allow traffic to be rerouted, providing a trouble-free access port for in-line network security and monitoring devices. The Bypass Switch, with its vital Heartbeat functionality, sends a “test” packet to the device that protects Figure 1: Bypass Switch and IPS under normal operation network traffic against link, application, and power failure. This Heartbeat adds automated link fail-open protection and provides support for 10Mbps to 10Gbps connectivity and managed models Figure 2: Bypass Switch re-routing traffic around IPS
  2. 2. Partner I Solution Brief When an IPS is taken offline, a Bypass Switch will immediately detect the change, either by link-state or by loss of the Heartbeats, and will reroute traffic around the IPS. Once the IPS is brought back on-line, traffic automatically resumes through the appropriate ports. Net Optics offers a wide range of Bypass Switches, with copper or fiber ports, and speeds of 10/100/1000 Mbps and 10 Gbps. The Bypass Switches provide redundant power to maximize reliability of the network. Now, the joint solution from Cisco Systems and Net Optics provides next-generation IPS security Net Optics Bypass Switches without compromising on reliability.
