Our mathematical model creates a complete and always-current digital twin of your physical, virtual, and cloud network estate including config and state information for all devices. The digital twin provides a complete view of all network behavior, with visibility into every possible path in your network. It brings mathematical certainty to network security validations by enabling security operations teams to:
VISUALIZE network layer 2 – 4 topology and all possible traffic paths within a single-pane view for on-premises, Cloud (AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform), and virtualized environments. Then, drill down to specific devices and traffic flows, including configuration and state data.
SEARCH the network as simply as a database. Our browser-like search feature performs complete end-to-end path analyses across the network for both on-premises and cloud infrastructure. This enables you to locate devices and access detailed information on their location, configuration, and state in milliseconds.
VERIFY that the security controls in the network are working as intended by using purpose-built (custom) intent checks. Continuously audit the network and receive actionable alerts for noncompliance with your security policies.
PREDICT the effect of proposed changes, so you can deploy updates without the fear of unintended connectivity changes by using the network digital twin as a sandbox.
COMPARE network changes over time to understand their impact on the network and prevent incidents from reoccurring. The network collector frequently scans the network taking and saving snapshots of network configurations, topology, and device state. These “snapshots” become a searchable historical record of network behavior and compliance at any point in time. And the behavior diffs feature makes it easy to quickly find and compare snapshots to identify changes that may violate your security policy.
See for yourself how the blast radius feature in the Forward Enterprise platform can help security operations professionals immediately identify compromised hosts and other potentially compromised devices and contain threats to your enterprise network — fast.
