We are asked to purchase something 4,000 times every day; that’s roughly once every 13 seconds during our waking hours. These “requests to purchase'' often come in the form of marketing messages that test the bounds of credibility. In the software industry, most of us have trained ourselves to question vendor promises vociferously. And vendors have earned this skepticism through years of launching “slideware” or incomplete products that turned customers into unwitting beta testers.
Technology decision makers are rightfully skeptical. They want proof that a solution will perform as promised and that it will work in their environment. Furthermore they need to be comfortable that the solution can be deployed without introducing security risks or performance issues. As a company pioneering a new category (network digital twins), we get that.
Our co-founder, Brandon Heller, loves it when people don’t just take our word for it about the Forward Enterprise platform capabilities. He also absolutely loves talking with people who don’t believe we can do things like:
Brandon is going to be sharing our platform and how enterprises are using Forward Enterprise to solve very complex problems and show the platform live. Bring your skepticism and your questions and put him to the test.
Because Brandon says that for him to trust applications - he needs to get his hands on the keyboard. Everyone who registers will receive a free two-week trial of Forward Cloud through AWS Marketplace - that way you can put your hands on the keyboard and experience the platform for yourself.

One lucky attendee will win a new Series 8 Apple Watch (must be present during the live session to win).
If you’re too excited to wait for the session, we got you - get a personalized demo from one of our field technicians where you can ask questions and focus on the use cases that are most important to your company (Security Verification, Cloud Modeling, Network Assurance).
A six-figure surprise is awesome when it’s a lottery win. It’s not so awesome when it’s the “Amount Due” appearing in your monthly cloud bill. But enterprises receive these “surprises” all the time, and what can sting even more is trying to explain this preventable expense to management.
Inefficient (not optimized) traffic routing to and from your various cloud instances and other services can hurt your business in other ways too. It can lead to bandwidth and latency issues that undermine network and application performance. And while your cloud users likely have no clue what network path they’re taking to get to the resources they need, if their experience stinks, you’ll hear about it.
There’s a quick and easy way for your engineers to find and fix inter-cloud routing mistakes before they become costly problems: with a proactive intent verification in Forward Networks. We recently announced that Forward Enterprise now supports all major cloud providers (AWS, GCP, and Azure) to create a digital twin of your entire hybrid multi-cloud estate. This use case has been very well received by our current customers.
The intent verification feature in Forward Enterprise lets you confirm that all the traffic patterns to, from, and between your cloud environments — and across your cloud instances from providers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and Microsoft Azure — are configured in-policy. Even if a path works, it may not be the most direct route the traffic could take which creates latency for users and/or racks up unnecessary connection charges for your enterprise.
With proactive intent verification, you can ensure your cloud traffic configurations are in-policy. And you’ll find no more big surprises in your monthly cloud bills — at least, from inter-cloud routing mistakes.
For more details on the intent check feature from Forward Networks, join our technical solutions architects for a demo of the capability in action or read this use case.
