The back panel contains all the network interface ports. These ports are grouped into the
management interface ports and the data interface ports.
Deep Edge
Routing Mode
In Routing mode, each Deep Edge unit is visible to the network to which it is
connected. All of its interfaces are on different subnets. Each interface connected to
a network must be configured with an IP address that is valid for that network.
You would typically use Routing mode when the Deep Edge unit is deployed as a
gateway between private and public networks. In the Routing mode configuration,
the unit functions as a firewall. Firewall policies control communications through the
Deep Edge unit. The Deep Edge unit scans traffic for malware using the default
policy until you create a custom policy.

Planning your traffic flow
Before configuring the Deep Edge appliance, plan how to integrate the unit into your
network. Your configuration plan depends on the operating mode you select: Inline
Mode (Routing Mode or Bridge Mode) or Monitoring Mode.
Your package should include the following items
Bridge Mode
In Bridge mode, the Deep Edge unit is invisible to the network. All of its interfaces are
on the same subnet. You only have to configure a management IP address so that you
can make configuration changes.
You would typically use Bridge mode on a private network behind an existing firewall or
behind a router. Position Deep Edge between layer 2 and layer 3 switches to scan all
packets entering and leaving that section of the network. In the default Bridge mode
configuration, the device functions as a firewall. The Deep Edge unit scans traffic for
malware using the default policy until you create a custom policy. Under the default
 Deep Edge scans and blocks malware on all traffic.
 Deep Edge also monitors and detects all types of violations in the network traffic.

Monitoring Mode
Before connecting the Deep Edge unit:
1. Place the unit on a stable surface or rack.
2. Review the interfaces on the front and back panels of the Deep Edge device.
In Monitoring mode, Deep Edge is invisible to the network. Establish the settings for
your switch and mirror the traffic to the port that connects to the Deep Edge. Deep
Edge monitors your network traffic and only logs violation‐related information.
Network traffic is never blocked in this mode even if policies exist.

In Monitoring Mode, network traffic does not pass directly through the Deep Edge
device. Traffic goes outside of Deep Edge, and Deep Edge runs independently
outside the network (logically) aided by the switches of the network which mirror the
specified traffic to interface(s) on which Deep Edge listens. Deep Edge monitors the
status of the traffic and presents the information to the Deep Edge admin.

Test your deployment and define your own policies
The default policy rules allow network traffic to pass. Try accessing the Internet from the
internal client to test the deployment.
You can define your own policies rules after successfully testing the deployment. Refer to
Deployment Guide for setup details or Administrator's Guide for the policy-creation
Configuring the Device Settings
After updating components, use the Deployment Guide to deploy Deep Edge in your
network. You can create multiple policies directed at different types of endpoints and
traffic. You can check your defined policies for different IP address ranges, ports, and
users. If you have multiple policies, only the first policy that matches an endpoint will
apply to the endpoint.
Connecting the device to the network
How you connect the Deep Edge unit depends on the mode selected in section 3.
To connect Deep Edge to your network:
1. Connect one end of a network cable to a port in the data interface.
2. Connect the other end of the cable to a segment of your network.
To get a better understanding of component updates and policy enforcement, consult the
Administrator’s Guide.
Note: For information on selecting the right ports and High Availability modes, see the
Deployment Guide.
Connecting for Inline Mode (Bridge or Routing)
To set the Deep Edge management IP address and netmask:
1. Connect your laptop or computer to the Deep Edge eth0 port.
