Summary

On the Device Configuration (HA (High Availability)) screen, you can configure the following:

Intrinsic HA: Directs the flow of network traffic between devices and ports when the current device fails-over.

Transparent HA: Provides the same traffic management as INHA without the time and performance spent building a connection table from scratch. TRHA actively updates the connection tables between the devices for possible fail-over.

Zero Power HA: Zero Power High Availability (ZPHA) that ensures constant, non-interrupted flow of network traffic. If the power is interrupted, the ZPHA bypasses the IPS device, thus providing continuous network traffic.
