ACCURATE ZONE-TO-ZONE CONNECTIVITY MATRIX 

Knowing which devices and applications can communicate with one another is foundational to security  yet most teams work from out-of-date spreadsheets and tribal knowledge to make this critical determination. 

By correlating routing information and security policies, Forward Enterprise offers an always current zone-to-zone connectivity matrix. Security operations professionals now have full confidence of zone-to-zone connectivity posture.

DATA CALLS AND AUDITS— 
NOW A (PAINFUL) MEMORY 

Audits are time-consuming and frankly annoying. 
But they are unavoidable. Or are they?

Using regularly scheduled collections and snapshots, Forward Enterprise delivers an always-on audit. Security Operations professionals no longer need to work the phones and email to gather the evidence needed to respond to an audit. The platform immediately serves up historical configuration and state information. Forward Enterprise's diffs feature identifies changes, including when they were made and their impact.

Audit responses are just a mouse click away.

COMMON VULNERABILITY 
AND EXPOSURE MITIGATION 

Using information from the NIST National Vulnerability Database and the specific device and configuration data collected from your network, Forward Enterprise automatically analyzes your network for vulnerabilities and presents information in an actionable format.

Our API integration with ServiceNow can automatically generate tickets automating the entire process.

Forward Customers

Forward Enterprise improves security posture management and reduces cyber exposure for thousands of users every day
Is this the thing we’ve always wanted?  Yes.  Have we had the resources to make this?  No.  I’ve built from l2, L3 down… throwing in PAN and FW is unique.

DIRECTOR @ FORTUNE 200 SERVICE PROVIDER

This is something I’ve never seen to this depth. This is cool. I love the L7 functionality. Other tools do similar things, but not like this. This has always been the end goal of what we want and you guys are hitting it.
