Forward Networks Named 2023 Hot Company In Compliance By Cyber Defense Magazine's Top InfoSec Innovator Awards
Forward Networks announced that it has been named the winner of the 2023 Hot Company in Compliance award by Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM)'s Top InfoSec Innovator Awards.

Forward Networks is modernizing the way large networks are managed by providing actionable, accessible, and insightful data that puts operators back in control of the network. Forward's advanced software creates a mathematical model, or digital twin, of the network by collecting and analyzing state and configuration data across all network devices and public cloud environments. The digital twin delivers an always-accurate topology, calculates all possible paths within the network, analyzes detailed behavioral information, makes network configuration and behavior searchable and verifiable, and proves security compliance. Forward Networks' digital twin supports devices from all major networking vendors and cloud operators, including AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform.

"We're honored to be named the Hot Company in Compliance from Cyber Defense Magazine's 2023 Top InfoSec Innovator Awards," said Chiara Regale, senior vice president of product management, Forward Networks. "Manually verifying compliance is nearly impossible given the scale, complexity and constantly evolving nature of enterprise networks. Through our collection of security data and custom policy checks, the Forward platform automates compliance processes and audits to provide companies with mathematical certainty that their network is in-policy."

Forward Enterprise's compliance features include:

  • Cloud Security Posture Management -IT professionals can be alerted any time a cloud configuration is outside of the network compliance policy. Timely alerts enable teams to quickly remediate situations before there's an incident.

  • Cybersecurity Vulnerability Analysis-Using information from the NIST National Vulnerability Database and the various vendors, along with specific device and configuration data collected from the network, Forward Enterprise proactively identifies every device vulnerability and presents information in a prioritized, actionable format.

  • Always-On Audit and Proof of Compliance-Through regularly collected snapshots and verification, Forward Enterprise delivers an always-current audit of the network that ensures network behavior complies with security policies and delivers proof of compliance for forensic or auditor analysis.

"We scoured the globe looking for cybersecurity innovators that could make a huge difference and potentially help turn the tide against the exponential growth in cyber-crime. Forward Networks is worthy of being named a winner in these coveted awards and consideration for deployment in your environment," said Yan Ross, Editor of Cyber Defense Magazine.
