Recognizing the value of network visibility and superior quality testing devices, Profitap’s aim has always been to develop and manufacture hardware and software solutions that help you get complete access and visibility into your network, from 10 Mbit to 100 Gbit and on all OSI layers.
All of these network visibility solutions (from state-of-the-art network TAPs and portable capture devices to network traffic analyzers) are designed with security, forensics, deep packet capture and network & application performance monitoring sectors in mind.
They help eliminate network downtime, add security to existing and new networks all over the world, assist in lawful interception applications and reduce network complexity. Being highly performant, secure and user-friendly, Profitap’s solutions provide complete visibility and access to your network, 24/7.
Every single one of our fiber components is tested before and after assembly.
We manufacture and deliver exceptionally designed and innovative monitoring solutions.
Our products have become an integral solution for more than 1,000 clients from 55 countries.

We offer free access to a technical support desk as a single point of contact.
ProfiShark – Ethernet field troubleshooting
Part of Profitap’s family of portable and compact troubleshooters, ProfiShark series are dedicated network TAPs for network monitoring, traffic capture and analysis. Based on FPGA and USB 3.0, they are a perfect blend of performance and flexibility.
A ProfiShark is equivalent to an aggregator TAP and two NICs, all-in-one in a pocket-sized box, the only additional hardware required being a laptop or desktop PC with a free USB 3.0 port.
Profitap Ethernet TAPs seamlessly duplicate full-duplex 10M/100M/1G/10G traffic at wire speed. Our TAPs provide monitoring devices with traffic as if they were in-line, allowing them to view all 7 layers, including packets of all sizes and types, as well as low-level errors.
Designed to enable flawless in-line monitoring of 1G, 10G, 40G and 100G fiber networks, our Fiber TAPs monitor all 7 OSI layers, packets of all sizes and types and low-level errors. They are non-intrusive, have no IP address and isolate monitoring devices from the network for complete security.
Bypass TAPs can support active in-line network security and performance tools. They were designed to avoid the “single point of failure” problem with other security appliances.
In the event that an active tool fails, either due to a hardware malfunction, power loss, or software problem, a bypass TAP will keep the link flowing, while a redundant path can be activated. This way it acts as a fail-safe point of access, for in-line network monitoring tools.
Aggregation TAPs connect MANY network ports to ONE monitoring port (M:1), combining the two incoming traffic streams into a single flow of outgoing traffic.
For example, in a basic setup, there are two network ports but only one ‘output’, or monitoring, port M. Network traffic entering ports A and B from each direction is then combined or merged to form a single stream of traffic. This is especially useful when that single monitoring tool has a limited number of ports.
For situations where you want to monitor a single, critical network segment using several tools, a Regeneration TAP is what you need. Unlike an aggregation TAP, a regeneration TAP copies traffic from ONE network segment and sends it to MANY network monitoring tools simultaneously (1:M).
That crucial network segment’s traffic could then be monitored by an intrusion detection system (IDS), recorded for later forensic examination, captured for future use, or analyzed for performance issues. This type of TAP is useful when a critical segment needs to be monitored by an array of security and compliance tools simultaneously.
