About Forward Networks Stock

Forward Networks delivers an innovative platform that provides network visibility, policy verification, and change modeling. Designed to help network teams eliminate costly network outages, the Forward Networks platform enables engineers and operators to easily visualize and search complex networks, quickly debug problems, verify network-wide policy correctness, and predict network behavior prior to making changes to production equipment — for legacy, SDN, or hybrid environments. Fortune 100 financial institutions, telcos, and IT service providers use Forward Networks to de-risk business operations and drive operational efficiency. Founded by a team of PhDs who helped pioneer SDN at Stanford, Forward Networks is headquartered in Palo Alto, CA and funded by Andreessen Horowitz, SV Angel, A Capital and several luminaries in the networking and systems space.
