Wavelink partners with Garland Technology to bolster network security
Mon, 18th Mar 2024

Wavelink has announced a new strategic partnership with Garland Technology. The leading provider of Network Test Access Points (TAPs), data diodes and packet brokers worldwide, Garland Technology, will enable Wavelink to offer its partners a comprehensive range of critical network visibility solutions. This development will ensure partners can swiftly put in place robust security measures amidst the rising incidence of complex and pervasive cyber threats.

Effective immediately, Wavelink will distribute Garland Technology’s products via its extensive network of resellers and system integrators, which encompass multiple sectors such as mining, manufacturing, finance, healthcare, and critical infrastructure. Both firms pledge to offer steady support and training for partners from the initial implementation phase through ongoing operations. This will ensure that their network infrastructure remains firm, secure, and efficient.

Garland Technology offers fundamental solutions for network visibility which are essential for organisations seeking to ensure their data can be effectively monitored, analysed, and protected. Network TAPs provide a non-intrusive avenue for firms to gain access to data traffic for complete data visibility without compromising network integrity. Additionally, packet brokers regulate the traffic flow to monitoring tools, ensuring that systems for security and performance monitoring receive the necessary data efficiently. There are also cloud visibility solutions that extend these capabilities to cloud environments, aligning with the needs of modern data access methods. This results in enhanced network performance, improved security posture, and streamlined compliance with regulatory standards as organisations gain the capability to monitor and address issues in real-time.

Chris Bihary, CEO and co-founder of Garland Technology, stated, "The demand for network visibility solutions designed specifically for operational technology (OT) environments has grown substantially over the past 18 months." He added, "Garland Technology is excited to work in partnership with the Wavelink team and bring its Network TAP, Aggregator, and hardware data diode solutions to the Australian market."

Talking about this strategic alliance, Chris Bihary pointed out the significance of a dedicated partner like Wavelink in expanding Garland Technology's network in Australia and New Zealand and playing a pivotal role in protecting critical infrastructure assets.

Ilan Rubin, CEO of Wavelink, responded, "Garland Technology aligns perfectly with Wavelink’s mission to deliver high-quality, innovative solutions." He further added, "Garland Technology’s products complement Wavelink’s existing portfolio and empowers the organisation to offer a comprehensive solution set for partners to help customers achieve their network performance and security goals."

According to Rubin, this partnership signifies a progressive step in equipping Australian and New Zealand companies with the tools necessary to protect their digital assets and maintain operational integrity. By boosting their network visibility and security capabilities, organisations can protect against threats and optimise their network performance, leading to improved business outcomes.
