Forum Systems to Explore the Fundamentals of API Security at Orlando Summit

By | Date posted: October 5, 2017

BOSTON, October 5, 2017 – Forum Systems Inc., a pioneer in API security technology, today announced the Orlando API Summit, the latest event in a series dedicated to examining the fundamentals of API security.

Taking place Thursday, November 9, from 9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. EDT at the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel, the Orlando API Summit will feature Forum Systems CEO Mamoon Yunus and other industry experts exploring the best practices in securing API-based architectures. During the event, Forum Systems will showcase how its Forum Sentry API Security Gateway is providing businesses with award-winning solutions for defending against API threats and vulnerabilities.

“APIs are the foundation of innovation in architecture design and modernization, including mobile, cloud, IoT and other key enterprise initiatives. But as evidenced by the recent Instagram vulnerability, despite their role as strategic business enablers, there’s still a dearth of security mechanisms employed to protect APIs,” said Yunus. “As such, we’ve established our yearlong ‘Summit Series’ – London, Amsterdam, and now, Orlando – as collaborative venues for sharing real-world API security strategy and insights, particularly through case studies from leading organizations like WellCare.

At Forum Systems’ Orlando API Summit, attendees will learn the best practices and common deployment scenarios of API Gateways – and why they are an essential component of a secure, robust and scalable API infrastructure. Additionally, the event will feature informative discussions on how to achieve flexible and secure API integration – without coding; simplifying Identity Federation and extending trust of identity management systems to cloud services; and combining identity and data inspection to unify authentication and access control.

Notable Orlando API Summit sessions include:

  • Content- and Context-Based Access Control
  • Migrating to the Cloud in a New API Era
  • Cybersecurity in an API Economy

The complimentary event will include lunch and be followed by dinner at Epcot. For more information and to register, please visit: http://info.forumsys.com/forum-systems-api-summit-orlando-2017.
