Forum Systems to Showcase Award-Winning API Gateway at SC Congress Chicago

Forum Systems Inc. will be showcasing its award-winning API Gateway, Forum Sentry, next Tuesday, November 18 at SC Congress Chicago. Taking place at Morgan Manufacturing, SC Magazine’s third annual conference and expo offers practical solutions, expert guidance and timely information to help private and public sector information security professionals effectively combat today’s cyber criminals.

The world’s first API Gateway to achieve Network Device Protection Profile (NDPP) compliance, Forum Sentry last month earned the coveted “Recommended” designation in SC Magazine’s NAC, IDM, DLP Group Test. Stating that “Forum Systems hit a home run with this product,” SC Magazine Technology Editor Dr. Peter Stephenson also selected Forum Sentry as the publication’s “Pick of the Litter.”

Declaring Forum Sentry “unmatched among its competitors,” Stephenson noted that “everything about the system was designed with security in mind.” In particular, he praised Forum Systems for being equipped with a console cable and serial port, explaining that “Sentry comes this way to enhance security: By communicating through a serial port, Sentry can completely lock down access to the kernel to make it tamper proof.”

Processing and securing more than 10 billion transactions per day worldwide, Forum Sentry significantly reduces the cost and complexity of centralizing security, identity and governance for hundreds of global organizations, including some of the world’s largest federal agencies. With the industry’s most comprehensive built-in support for data formats and communication protocols, Forum Sentry enables companies to rapidly integrate internal SOA and external RESTful systems.

The industry’s only FIPS 140-2 and NDPP-certified API Gateway for enabling secure connectivity between users, applications and the cloud, Forum Sentry is the first Layer 4-7 device to achieve NDPP security certification, and holds the industry’s only patent for cryptographic acceleration of security processing.
