Federal Resources

Forward Enterprise provides network documentation, reporting, and analytics that can ensure policy compliance and error-free change management in the federal space. The accurate software copy, or digital twin, of network infrastructure is used to document, search, verify and predict network behavior

Federal agencies depend on Forward Enterprise
to understand, automate, and analyze their mission-critical networks.

The Challenge of Effective Network Operations

To effectively operate, agencies need to:.

‣ Know what they have
‣ Know how it's connected
‣ Know where the traffic goes
‣ Know whether it's working
‣ Know what to change

A fundamentally different approach is needed to see, understand, and confidently act on network behavior.

Zero Trust

Federal agencies use Forward Enterprise to modernize their mission-critical networks. Verification is essential to reducing cybersecurity risk-- Forward allows network managers to verify every transaction before access is granted. Operators can verify the network is configured and behaving exactly as intended across on-prem, cloud and virtual overlay networks. Forward also allows users to set, check and customize policies for the entire network.

Continous Monitoring

Federal IT management demands protective monitoring of network infrastructure. Forward Enterprise provides a network model, or 'digital twin' of the network, giving network managers key insights with visualizations that are easily consumable and exportable. The dashboard feature includes insights on device models, OS versions, device by type, and several key metrics like number of links, number of configuration lines, number of VLANs, and number of VRFs with an indication of how they changed in recent history.

Secure the Network

As federal networks have grown, the need to gain access has changed from a tightly controlled access method to an open architecture environment that supports flexibility. Deep network awareness and fast forensic capabilities are necessary to provide the most advanced, end-to-end network security.

"It's a complete game-changer."
