Forward Networks is a Palo Alto-based company that has created software to provide solutions for networks, such as alleviating network outages, search complex networks, debut configuration problems, implement network-wide policies, and more. Its stated mission is to help identify and fix potential network issues.
The company's software is known as "Forward Enterprise" and it documents, searches, verifies, and predicts the behavior of the client's network by creating a software copy of the entire network infrastructure for both on-premises software and cloud. It can map the topology of the network's environment and the network team can utilize the search function to find information such as network behavior.
There is also a verification function which allows for the network to be continuously audited and sends alerts to team members in the event of non-compliance. The software is capable of utilizing the data from the network to predict issues, such as connectivity and security policy violations. It can be integrated with other software including Cisco, Arista, and Azure.
