What is a 'digital twin tool'?

Networks are becoming larger and more complex. Digital twin tools allow enterprise network managers and operators to get full visibility, with mathematical-accuracy into every device on their network.

Worried about cybersecurity? With a digital twin, you can ensure implemented security boundaries match your intent, and find where a compromised host can reach. A digital twin like Forward Enterprise can indicate malware’s entry-point using its mathematically accurate network modeling algorithm.

Forward Enterprise creates a digital twin of an entire enterprise network, by using a mathematical model to analyze how every possible packet could traverse the network, across all technologies seen in enterprise networks (L2, L3, L4, overlays, underlays, etc) and environments (on-premise, hybrid, and public cloud).

Make sure your network changes have the intended effects. Learn more about digital twin tools below.
