HIPswitch 500 Series

Securely Segment
Physical and Virtual Servers

The HIPswitch 500 serves as a datacenter, campus, or plant services gateway, and can function as either a hub or aggregation point for all your connected machines. Its high performance, port density, dual power, port expansion modules (and optional FIPS) eliminate the cost, complexity, and ineffectiveness of managing VPNs, firewalls, VLANs, ACLs, and NAC for secure access and segmentation across any network.

The HIPswitch 500 also allows you to gain maximum scalability with eight standard Gigabit Ethernet ports and optional SFP and SFP+ expansion modules, as well as High availability (HA) configurations for seamless failover of mission-critical workloads.

Below is a small sample of what machines you can use the HIPswitch 500 to connect and segment.

Rapid Deployment from IoT Edge-to-Cloud

line

With a plug-and-play design, you can now rapidly connect and segment your infrastructure from edge-to-cloud, with little to no change to existing infrastructure. This eliminates the complexity, time, and costs associated with traditional networking and security solutions.

In addition, central policy orchestration is non-persistent, so all enforcement points can run autonomously for superior network resiliency and availability.

“The HIPswitch 500 allows us to instantly move traffic flows from one physical server to another, so we can deal with software upgrades and ensure high availability without relying on DNS or slow and often unreliable routing convergence across our global MPLS network.”

Simple System Failover

line

Using traditional IT solutions, system failover is dependent upon either routing convergence or DNS. However, due to the complexity, failover is typically configured at a network (macro) level and not at the individual machine (micro) level.

With the HIPswitch 500, failover is now instant and verifiable, and can easily be applied to a single machine, service, an entire data center or discreet instances in the public cloud, without the complexity of managing IP namespace collisions or DNS namespace errors.

Segmenting Legacy Systems

line

Organizations struggle with many legacy machines that use OSs that are vulnerable to malware because they are un-patchable or no longer supported, such as Microsoft Windows XP. The HIPswitch 500 delivers secure connectivity and segmentation for legacy machines and applications, making sure you can preserve your legacy investments.
