Forum Systems to Share Insights into API Security Management Best Practices at Key London Events

CTO Jason Macy to Discuss Security for Today’s Enterprise Architectures at SC Congress London; Will Host Industry Leaders at Company’s Fifth-Annual London API Summit

BOSTON, February 3, 2016 – Forum Systems Inc. today announced that CTO, Jason Macy, will be providing tips and techniques for deploying best-in-class API Security Management at key events in London. A recognized global leader in the sector, the company will showcase its Forum Sentry API Security Gateway during the presentations.

“Now more than ever, organizations must harness the power of APIs to rapidly connect with business partners. But traditional solutions are woefully inadequate in securely integrating the legacy, hybrid cloud and mobile platforms that comprise today’s enterprise environments,” said Macy. “London is a world hub that has long recognized the need for modern API security-driven architectures. I look forward to discussing and demonstrating the criticality of API Security Management technology when delivering applications and services beyond enterprise borders, while protecting the security and integrity of corporate data on premises.”

At SC Congress London 2016, Macy will present “API Security Management – Cyber Protection for Modern Enterprise Architecture,” taking place at the ILEC Conference Centre on Wednesday, February 10 from 1:55 – 2:25 p.m. GMT. Macy’s session will explore how mobile and cloud computing adoption and the explosion in cyber attacks have combined to fundamentally transform network architectures, rendering traditional cyber security solutions ineffective. He will also discuss how enterprises must adapt to ensure secure, rapid integration to data and services, and explain how API Security Gateway technology provides the foundation for today’s agile architectures through centralized identity enforcement, access control and data security.

Following SC Congress London, Macy will host industry leaders at Forum Systems’ fifth-annual London API Summit at The Grange St. Paul’s Hotel on Thursday, February 11. The event will be moderated by KuppingerCole Founder and Principal Analyst Martin Kuppinger, and will feature talks by Macy and API security experts from Trustis and Spargonet. Together with their industry peers, attendees will benefit from education and information about, as well as solutions for, API-based architectures from organizations using Forum Sentry as the foundation of their API Security Management solution.

Notably, Forum Systems and Trustis recently announced their strategic partnership to deliver API Security Management solutions to UK public sector organizations on the G-Cloud 7 framework. Further information can now be obtained by UK government entities in the Crown Commercial Service’s online catalog, the Digital Marketplace.

Forum Systems’ London API Summit is a complimentary, all-day event and will be followed by dinner at the Bread Street Kitchen. Key topics covered will include

  • Simplifying identity federation and extending trust of internal identity management systems to cloud services
  • Combining identity and data inspection to unify authentication and access control
  • Implementing agile DevOps concepts for efficient and repeatable deployments
  • Preventing insider threats through cloud-based and software-defined network (SDN) information assurance concepts
