Search network behavior, configuration and state network-wide with an intuitive and powerful tool. Find any device on your network, including its connections and all forwarding behavior for fast root-cause isolation and incident remediation. Perform complete end-to-end path analyses across your network for both on-prem and cloud infrastructure.
VERIFY NETWORK INTENT
Verify that your network is configured and behaving exactly as intended across on-prem, cloud, and virtual overlay networks. Set, check, and customize policies for your entire network. Continuously audit your network and receive alerts of non-compliance.
PREDICT NETWORK BEHAVIOR
Understand the outcome of network configuration changes for ACL and NAT environments. Proactively identify potential connectivity and security policy violations.
COMPARE WITH BEHAVIOR DIFFS
Behavior Diffs allow side-by-side comparison in one quick view of configuration file changes for any device, between any points in time.Identify what policy rules and behavior checks have changed between snapshots. Quickly see new device connections, topology changes and interface updates. Learn how routes are altered due to changes with the ability to filter results by VRF, next hop address, IP destination and more.
BLAST RADIUS DETECTION
Immediately identify compromised hosts and other potentially compromised devices and contain threats to your enterprise network — fast
Increase visibility into your network, enabling continuous monitoring for issues, and empowering teams to access network information, do their own data calls, and move swiftly to pinpoint and address compliance issues in the network
Expedite the app deployment cycle, while also reducing security risks for your users -- and your orgnianziation — through continuous monitoring and validation of the app’s security posture post-deployment.
Visualize topology and hop by hop traffic analysis on-prem, on-prem to cloud, and cloud to cloud; all in a single view. Verify zone-to-zone security policy compliance, on prem and in the cloud. Prove compliance in the cloud.
Real network engineers demonstrate how to solve everyday problems with Forward Enterprise.
STREAMLINING AND SCALING AUTOMATION WORKFLOWS [4:46]
See how Forward helps teams fully realize the benefits of workflow automation by delivering a consistent method for collecting and parsing device configuration and state information which is presented in a vendor-agnostic data model for automation workflows.
BUILDING A CUSTOM SPLUNK APP TO TRIGGER COLLECTIONS [2:39]
Forward Networks API integration with Splunk makes it easy to create custom apps and alerts that trigger new collections when events such as configuration changes take place.
NETWORK QUERY ENGINE MAKES AUDITING THE NETWORK A CINCH [3:46]
The Forward Networks Query Engine Library is a repository of common use cases that solve the most frequent customer issues. Using the library, engineers can select pre-defined queries and instantly audit the network to ensure it's behaving as expected.
SPLUNK INTEGRATION MAKES UNDERSTANDING BGP EASY [4:04]
Understanding a BGP Event on a specific device and its impact across the network is made simple using a custom Splunk app integrated with Forward Enterprise. Scot Wilson shows how to create the app which allows engineers to visualize event impact overlayed on network topology. API integration makes it easy to visualize and understand the information using assistance checks.
MERGED SNAPSHOTS [6:16]
Visualizing the detailed topology and device configuration and state information for your entire network is now one click away. Merging the snapshots allows operators to understand packet behavior across multiple networks, visualize physical topology, and investigate logical packet behavior. Technical Solution Architect Scot Wilson demonstrates how to use this feature to understand traffic in tunnels and underlay transport layers.
AUTOMATED NON-COMPLIANCE DETECTION ALERTS [6:05]
Automated Compliance checks within the Forward Networks platform provide continuous verification that the network is compliant with security policies and that configuration drift has not wormed its way into your network. Technical Solutions Architect Eric Gates demonstrates how to set them up in minutes for never-ending peace of mind.
