Forward Networks Adds Support for AWS

Benefits of Intent-based Network Verification Now Extend to Amazon Virtual Private Clouds

Palo Alto, CA. – November 29, 2018 – Forward Networks, the industry leader in network assurance and intent-based verification, has announced that their latest software release includes support for Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Forward Enterprise, the company's network verification platform, now delivers the benefits of intent-based networking to hybrid cloud environments, allowing IT organizations to view their AWS VPC networks as a seamless extension of their on-premises infrastructure, from a connectivity, security policy and compliance perspective.

David Erickson, CEO at Forward Networks, noted, "We've launched support for AWS in direct response to demand from our customers, who want to apply all of the advantages of our platform – reduced risk, reduced cost, and better operational efficiency – to their AWS cloud infrastructure."

Forward Networks has pioneered the ability to analyze the end-to-end behavior of networks and then verify the correctness of a network based on defined intent, security policies, and compliance requirements.

"Businesses shouldn’t have to sacrifice network visibility and control when they migrate to a cloud environment," said Alan Weckel, Founder and Technology Analyst at 650 Group. "Forward Networks has taken a huge leap in solving that problem."

Forward Networks' flagship platform, Forward Enterprise, Forward Networks' flagship product, delivers a software platform for network verification and automation designed for large, complex, multi-vendor network environments. By creating, in software, a mathematical model of the network, Forward Enterprise enables companies to quickly visualize and search large networks, debug problems, verify policy correctness at scale, and predict network behavior prior to making changes to production equipment. Network engineers can also diagnose issues in a fraction of the time and isolate potential errors before they cause network outages.
