Let There Be Visibility: See Your Entire Cloud Estate in a Single, Normalized View

by Chiara Regale

Do cloud environments really have to be so foggy? Absolutely not. Yet, many enterprises have come to accept that not having full visibility into their cloud estate is just “how it is.”

That’s a risky position, as deploying or migrating third-party cloud platforms without a complete view of network traffic patterns can easily lead to security gaps and make troubleshooting a daunting task.

Most enterprises today use multiple cloud platforms like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and Microsoft Azure as part of their hybrid cloud estate. Visualizing their environment for troubleshooting requires multiple applications and often several experts within the team. As cloud use expands and providers release new services, the visibility problem is worsening quickly — and exponentially.

Sure, network and security teams have tools to validate connectivity and security for on-premises networking. But they’re not useful for the cloud. It’s like asking your teams to use a drill to hammer a nail. Plus, each cloud provider has its own nomenclature, methodology, and toolset. What network or security pro has time to learn and master all of that?

Thankfully, they don’t even have to try (unless they really want to). Forward Networks can help your teams make sense of your organization’s cloud estate and ensure the same policies you have in place on-prem are being enforced in the cloud. We’ve extended the visualization, search, and verification capabilities of Forward Enterprise to support AWS, Azure, and GCP. The Forward Enterprise platform now enables engineers to visualize the entire cloud estate alongside the on-prem environment in a single, normalized (vendor agnostic) view.

Bring a Healthy Dose of Skepticism ….. Please

We are asked to purchase something 4,000 times every day; that’s roughly once every 13 seconds during our waking hours.
