Ixia has introduced iBypass VHD, a modular, high-density, inline bypass switch that is claimed to be the highest density solution on the market today. It uses next-generation intelligence and flexibility to help ensure that security tools have continuous visibility into network traffic, and can improve security infrastructure uptime and overall reliability with consistent network visibility and monitoring.

Ixia’s bypass switches deliver fail-safe, inline protection that helps safeguard a network with automated failover, which prevents temporary tool outages from escalating into costly network outages. iBypass VHD is the first bypass switch to support both active-standby and active-active network/security architectures. Active-standby offers improved security resilience with a primary and secondary tool that helps ensure ongoing network monitoring. Active–active enables a diverse deployment of security tools to maximize existing and new IT investments.

iBypass VHD offers at least 1.5 times the density of all other bypass switches available, and provides a powerful, yet easy-to-use, interface. Its drag-and-drop functionality significantly reduces setup time and ongoing support costs. It is the only bypass switch offering preset, integrated security tool heartbeats built into the user interface. Preconfigured to automatically integrate with security tools via a single click, iBypass VHD is designed for rapid set up and delivers immediate time to value, while limiting potential errors during deployment.

iBypass VHD supports up to twelve 10G bypass switches in one unit, three times more than previous versions, to maximize valuable data center real estate and give Ixia channel partners a compelling new tool to add to their end-to-end network visibility offerings.
Ixia iBypass VHD offers centralized and simplified management, leveraging Indigo Pro. Indigo Pro is a central management tool for bypass switches that simplifies and speeds configuration and management of tens to hundreds of devices, which is ideal for any large-scale, dispersed deployments. This enables organizations to quickly implement a resilient security architecture across their entire network infrastructure.

iBypass VHD is currently available via authorized Ixia channel partners at a starting list price of $21,000.
