Companies using Forward Enterprise report significant time savings, cost reduction and improved ability to deploy new applications.

"We are honored that the Forward Enterprise platform is a Golden Globee recipient for Network Management solutions in the 2021 IT World Awards," said Chiara Regale, VP of product at Forward Networks.

Being recognized by the Globee Awards is validation that we are delivering on that promise."

More than 65 judges from around the world representing a wide spectrum of industry experts participated in the judging process. The IT World Awards are open to all Information Technology and Cyber Security organizations from all over the world and their end-users of products and services.
