Forward Networks: Verifying Network Intent with Forward Enterprise
Integrating devices from multiple vendors, virtualization, and cloud services into large networks have increased their complexity. Verifying network intent in light of this complexity can be a tedious and expensive exercise. With Forward Enterprise, ESG validated that organizations can learn physical and virtual device configurations automatically, collect current state information on those devices, identify the impact of network issues on end-to-end network behaviour, and assess the potential unintended side effects of solving those issues. Forward Enterprise can greatly reduce the time and effort required to determine how well networks operate as intended, thus decreasing network operations and administration costs.
