OverviewSuggest Edit

Forward Networks delivers a mathematically accurate network copy to simplify network operations and provide network assurance. One can search, verify, and predict network behavior with an accurate software copy of one's network to de-risk and accelerate network operations. The platform analyzes the network to identify problems one didn’t know existed and verifies changes to prevent outages.

The Company's applications include: Forward Search – instant access to questions about network behavior, Forward Verify – continuously verify that business-critical network connectivity and security policies are enforced, and Forward Predict – predict the precise outcomes of proposed changes to your network without touching production.
