Garland Technology and Cloud Harmonics Launch Partnership at Ignite 2016

March 31, 2016: Buffalo, NY - Garland Technology, the leading manufacturer of network TAPs has announced today a technology partnership with Cloud Harmonics, the leading next-generation distributor of cybersecurity and cloud technologies. The official launch of this partnership begins at Ignite 2016, hosted by Palo Alto Networks in Las Vegas on April 3-6, 2016.

The joint partnership began with the need for next-generation security technologies to ensure 100% data access and visibility, while maintaining 100% network uptime. With Garland Technology's bypass network TAPs, all data - every bit, byte and packet - is copied and delivered to the security appliance, whether it's a next-generation firewall (NGFW) or next-generation intrusion prevention system (NG-IPS).

"I am very excited to announce this partnership. Cloud Harmonics is an exceptional example of a complete distribution and service solution. They offer superb technology, in-depth training and advanced services to their customers." said Chris Bihary, CEO/Co-Founder of Garland Technology.

Garland Technology's bypass network test access points (TAPs) were designed specifically as connectivity tool for active, in-band security devices, these purpose built hardware devices do not introduce additional points of failure or unneeded infrastructure into the network.

"By aligning with Garland Technology we are able to deliver a guaranteed, turn-key visibility solution for Palo Alto Networks NGFW users, as well as ensure 100% network uptime - even during times of network maintenance, updates or trouble-shooting." said Doug Chalmers, COO, Cloud Harmonics.

Network TAPs are considered the best practice by IT professionals when 100% network access and visibility is required. Companies that rely on traditional SPAN ports experience lost packets and higher latency due to oversubscribed ports, thus making their network monitoring and analysis appliances ineffective.
