Forum Systems CTO to Share Insights into API Security at SC Congress London

Delving into the most pressing technical and corporate dynamics facing organizations deploying effective security while ensuring business integration, Forum Systems Inc.‘ today announced that its Chief Technology Officer, Jason Macy, will be speaking at SC Congress London. His presentation, “Innovate and Integrate – Modernizing API Security,” will be held on Tuesday, March 3 from 1:55-2:25 p.m. GMT at the ILEC Conference Centre in Theatre 2.

In its second year, SC Congress London comprises innovative programming, cutting-edge insights, superior solutions and an opportunity to network with cyber-security leaders and luminaries. At the conference, Forum Systems will be showcasing its award-winning API Gateway, Forum Sentry, in Booth #5.

In today’s breach-ridden environment it’s critical that security not be compromised. What many organizations are still realizing is that it is possible to be secure while streamlining network accessibility. In his session, Macy will explore best practices on how IT professionals can achieve a balance between necessary business integration and protection of business assets.

Topics covered will include:

  • Architecture design – the key to enabling business agility.
  • How to combine identity access control with data security.
  • Simplifying architecture to reduce costs.

A recognized industry leader setting new benchmarks in security, Forum Systems offers the world’s first API Gateway to achieve Network Device Protection Profile (NDPP) compliance. Notably, its Forum Sentry solution last October 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 lauded Forum Sentry as “unmatched among its competitors.”

Bridging the gap between interoperability and security, Forum Systems’ 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. 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.
