FE takes data that it collects from the network and normalizes it into a searchable database that you can also access via an API. This one aspect of FE is incredibly powerful for our team. It allows us to extend the capabilities of FE to meet out own needs quickly and efficiently. While the tool provides an incredible interface for searching through our network data and visualizing our network layout, it is the ability to use the API and automation to solve our own specific set of problems that makes FE stand out from all the other tools I have worked with.
Forward is a fantastic tool, enabling the ability to analyze flows end to end. With the very detailed output, we were able to better analyze the traffic in all directions.
In complex network operation work, it becomes a super powerful tool.
Forward Enterprise features a very user-friendly interface that makes it simple to understand and operate. I also admire how quickly it can return results from queries across a huge network. Working with their support engineers has been a great pleasure as well. They are really responsive and can swiftly implement fixes. They are also highly receptive to suggestions and prepared to put them into action if they benefit the overall client base. It's incredibly valuable because it can track packet flow from source to destination. For my job of auditing different areas of the network, finding network devices and their model information as well as their configuration has saved me a lot of time.
