Designed to meet the security 
needs of federal agencies

  • ACCURATE SECURITY POSTURE MATRIX FOR ZERO-TRUST VERIFICATION AT A GLANCE

    Get real-time visibility into policy-driven security. 

    Audit zero-trust policies across agency networks with mathematical certainty.
    VALIDATE AND VERIFY ZERO TRUST

    CONTINUOUS ATOS WITHOUT TIME-CONSUMING DATA CALLS AND AUDITS

    Audits are unavoidable and consume valuable resources with questionable results. Now they don’t have to be time-consuming or have data-fidelity questions. Relieve this burden with Forward Enterprise
    PROACTIVELY VERIFY COMPLIANCE
  • VERIFY SECURITY POLICIES 
    IN THE CLOUD

    Visualize your cloud estates alongside your on-prem environments in a single, normalized view. Make sense of your networks and verify the same policies you have in place on-prem are being enforced in the cloud.
    EASILY ENFORCE SECURITY POLICIES ACROSS CLOUDS

    IMMEDIATELY IDENTIFY COMPROMISED HOSTS AND DEVICES WITH BLAST RADIUS

    The Blast Radius feature is an “easy button” that allows users to localize a compromised host and analyze its network reachability to a potential target in seconds. 
    QUICKLY INVESTIGATE CYBER ATTACKS
  • Network OS

    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 agency networks for vulnerabilities and presents information in an actionable format.
    AUTOMATICALLY ANALYZE VULNERABILITIES
    Forward fix automated non-compliance

    INSTANT VERIFICATION WITH AUTOMATED SECURE APPLICATION PROVISIONING

    Move from examining each new application individually to automatic intent checks to ensure applications are within policies. Once the intent check is written, DevOps can run automated intent checks as a self-service without networking knowledge.

Zone-to-zone connectivity matrix

CONTROLLED UNCLASSIFIED INFORMATION

Knowing which devices and applications can communicate with one another is foundational to security and proving zero-trust postures – especially for federal agencies working with Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) and classified data. Yet most agency teams work from out-of-date spreadsheets and historical knowledge to make this critical determination.

INTERZONE CONNECTIVITY AT A GLANCE

By correlating routing information and security policies, Forward Enterprise offers an always-current security posture matrix to display interzone connectivity at a glance. Agency teams can verify if a device is able to reach the internet and is vulnerable to data exfiltration.

Forward Customers

Forward Enterprise improves security posture management and reduces cyber exposure for thousands of users every day
Forward shortens timelines for our valuable contractor and government staff. Also we need to address network hygiene and Forward helps us focus on a quality network for our mission instead of focusing on the status of the network and worrying if it is up.

ITDIRECTOR @ FEDERAL AGENCY

Before Forward, if I needed to track an IP down it would take around 3 days and I would have to speak to about 30 people. Now I can just access Forward directly and get the information in 2-3 minutes.

SECURITY DIRECTOR @ FEDERAL AGENCY

No other platform allows us to model the entire network including ACI and AWS. We're migrating to AWS, ACI and Cisco SD Access... this transition adds risk to the network team and having a digital twin of the network allows us to verify connectivity and isolation.

Can your system...

SCALE?

...collect, process, and support search on an entire network of 50K or more core network devices in a single view?

IDENTIFY?

...filter identified paths based on any specified Layer 2 through 4 headers? (Including Ethertype, Src/Dst MAC, VLAN, VXLAN VNI, IP Protocol, Route Target, L4 Src/Dst Ports, TCP Flags, …)?

MAINTAIN?

...expose a normalized, vendor-independent data model to query network configuration and state without requiring a user to define or maintain that model?
Instead of emulations, simulations, and maps, Forward Enterprise is the only digital twin that creates a network behavior database and intelligently traces and analyzes all possible traffic flows.
