Forum Systems to Showcase Award-Winning API Gateway at AFCEA Defensive Cyber Operations Symposium

Forum Systems announced today that it will be showcasing its award-winning API Gateway, Forum Sentry, at the 2015 AFCEA Defensive Cyber Operations Symposium in Booth # 3014. Taking place June 16-18 at the Baltimore Convention Center, the event is designed to promote collaboration between government and industry partners in order to improve security and better defend the cyber mission space.

Forum Systems facilitates secure business integration for global enterprise customers in commercial, government and military sectors. Processing and securing more than 10 billion transactions per day worldwide, the company’s flagship Forum Sentry protects and accelerates data exchange and API service access across networks and business boundaries, significantly reducing the cost and complexity of centralizing security, identity and governance.

Last month in the Executive View titled, “Forum Sentry API Gateway,” leading analyst firm KuppingerCole recommended Forum Systems for companies with long-term API strategies. In the report, KuppingerCole Senior Analyst Alexei Balaganski deemed Forum Sentry worthy of “evaluation by any organization looking for the highest grade of security and reliability.”

In profiling Forum Systems, Balaganski lauds its security heritage, stating “since the very beginning, the company has focused on mission-critical large-scale solutions with a heavy emphasis on ‘security by design.’” Additionally, he commends Forum Sentry as “the only product on the market where security forms the integral foundation of the architecture and was not added later as an afterthought.”

Architected for deployment at the network edge, Forum Sentry is the industry’s only FIPS 140-2 and NDPP-certified API Gateway for enabling secure connectivity between users, applications and the cloud. In addition, Forum Systems holds the industry’s only patent for cryptographic acceleration of security processing. Notably, these and other market-leading capabilities helped Forum Sentry capture the prestigious “Recommended” designation in SC Magazine’s 2014 NAC, IDM and DLP Group Test.
