About Forward Networks
The software used to manage networks hasn’t kept up with the dramatic expansion of networks themselves.
Our four Stanford PhD co-founders have spent their careers working to improve networking, as contributors to OpenFlow and pioneers of software defined networking (SDN). They saw deficiencies in network operations: extreme complexity, human error, and outdated tools. These deficiencies make networks easy to break and hard to fix.
The Forward Platform simplifies operation of the world’s largest networks to increase visibility and reduce the risk of errors and outages. Our mission is to help identify and fix potential network issues with a straightforward, intuitive, and modern software interface.
We are building a team of the smartest network engineers and problem-solvers, all dedicated to advancing network operations. While you build the future, we’ll keep your network healthy and running.
