What is Forward Networks?

Forward Networks, located in Palo Alto, California, was founded in July, 2013 by four Ph.D. graduates from Stanford University, Brandon Heller, Peyman Kazemian, Nikhil Handigol, and David Erickson.

Our four co-founders have spent their careers working to improve networking, as contributors to OpenFlow and pioneers of software-defined networking (SDN). They saw deficiencies in network operations: extreme complexity, human error, and outdated tools. These deficiencies make networks easy to break and hard to fix. Forward Networks delivers an innovative platform that provides network visibility, policy verification, and change modeling.

Designed to help network teams eliminate costly network outages, the Forward Networks platform enables engineers and operators to easily visualize and search complex networks, quickly debug problems, verify network-wide policy correctness, and predict network behavior prior to making changes to production equipment — for legacy, SDN, or hybrid environments. Fortune 100 financial institutions, telcos, and IT service providers use Forward Networks to de-risk business operations and drive operational efficiency.

Forward Networks Product Details

Forward Enterprise documents, searches, verifies, and predicts the behavior of your network by creating an always-accurate software copy of your entire network infrastructure for both on-prem and cloud. With available REST APIs, it easily integrates into your existing network management workflow and tools. Forward Enterprise can be deployed on-prem or via cloud hosting for complete implementation flexibility.

Map - Automatically create an always-accurate network diagram with full details about the topology of your environment. Access a complete inventory of your hardware and software across vendors, platforms and versions. Visualize the network-wide L2, L3 and L4 state of your network and all device configurations.

Search - Search network behavior, configuration and state network-wide with an intuitive and powerful tool. Find any device on your network, including its connections and all forwarding behavior for fast root-cause isolation and incident remediation. Perform complete end-to-end path analyses across your network for both on-prem and cloud infrastructure.

Verify - Verify that your network is configured and behaving exactly as intended across on-prem, cloud and virtual overlay networks. Set, check and customize policies for your entire network.Continuously audit your network, receiving alerts of non-compliance.

Predict - Understand the outcome of network configuration changes for ACL and NAT environments. Proactively identify potential connectivity and security policy violations.

Compare - Behavior Diffs allow side-by-side comparison in one quick view of configuration file changes for any device, between any points in time. Identify what policy rules and behavior checks have changed between snapshots.

Integrate - Use the language of your choice to implement integrations with standard REST semantics and HTTP Basic Auth. Create custom apps to show network paths, status of policy checks, or anything else from the rich database of network information.
