High Performance, Cost Effective Bypass Switch

Inline security and monitoring tools allow network operators to prevent incidents, inspect encrypted traffic, block bad IPs and more. However, these same security and monitoring tools can become a single point of failure — bringing down the entire network, affecting users and compromising security in the process.

Bypass switches are the solution to this conundrum! They provide a fail-safe way to achieve inline security, without compromising uptime or the user experience.

Keysight's iBypass DUO is the latest, inline bypass switch to ensure operators achieve resilient security while maintaining up-time and without affecting the user experience.

iBypass DUO is different from other bypasses on the market — it has two management interfaces, two power fail options and all the other features our bypasses are known for. With the ability to deploy standalone or with a network packet broker, the iBypass DUO is incredibly versatile.

In addition, our Fabric Controller Centralized Manager, the only central management tool for bypass switches, simplifies and speeds iBypass DUO configuration and management of tens to hundreds of devices. This is a necessary requirement for any large-scale deployment and is available for all Keysight iBypass switches.

Easy to Use Interface

iBypass DUO has the most powerful and simple user of any bypass switch. It leverages the same network to tools port layout of our network packet brokers, with drag-and-drop capabilities and intuitive presets. The interface is proven to reduce setup time and lower ongoing support and configuration costs.

iBypass + Vision Network Packet Broker

iBypass + Vision Network Packet Broker

Our line of iBypass switches can be used standalone or with our Vision Network Packet Brokers (NPBs). As standalone devices, they can be used to deploy firewalls and other such gating security tools. When used with NPBs, they are a critical component of a larger security and monitoring infrastructure.

Combined with the Vision NPBs, iBypasses can open the door high-availability configurations offering the solution to complex network needs to ensure up-time in critical situations.

The Best Guard — an External Bypass

iBypass DUO is an “external” bypass switch and is fully independent of any network packet brokers. It avoids the major architectural weakness.
