View All Your Clouds in a Single Pane of Glass

by Chiara Regale

If your enterprise is like most of Forward Networks’ customers, then your IT shop oversees a sizable cloud estate. You probably have hundreds of accounts, projects, or subscriptions across different cloud vendors. There are tons of related objects too — virtual machines, firewalls, transit gateways, subnets, and more. And cloud-native apps? Maybe you have hundreds of those in use or development as well.

Your IT team needs to manage this complex environment efficiently and effectively. Yet, it’s unlikely they know exactly what that environment looks like and how everything in it relates to and interacts with each other. No doubt, they’re also unsure whether the company’s networking and security policies have been properly extended to the cloud. Meanwhile, your cloud estate keeps growing and changing all the time.

Given how critical cloud platforms and applications are to supporting your business, your IT team really can’t go on without access to granular, real-time, and historical insight into what’s happening in your cloud environment. They don’t have that insight for a host of reasons, from the lack of appropriate tools to insufficient knowledge about specific platforms. But they can get that insight with the Forward Enterprise platform from Forward Networks, which presents the single source of truth about your cloud infrastructure in a single pane of glass.

In Forward Enterprise, your IT team gets a comprehensive and always up-to-date view of your cloud estate from a global level down to a specific instance. The platform provides the most complete and in-depth path analysis, custom verification, and visualization capabilities for on-premises environments and multi-cloud estates that span across multiple vendors such as Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, and Microsoft Azure. And if your IT team wants to explore a specific aspect of the cloud infrastructure, they can drill down on the details with a single click.

Your organization’s multi-cloud environment is a big investment for your business, and it’s a marvel to behold. With the Forward Enterprise platform, you can take it all in — every object and traffic pattern — through a single pane of glass and make sure everything is operating just as it should be. To learn more about this eye-opening capability from Forward Networks, read this use case.
