API-driven vulnerabilities and hacks continue to make headlines, as seen with Coincube, Reddit/Mailgun and Roku. As a result, more people and organizations are (finally) awakening to the seriousness of the threat.
API security is critical to businesses with any type of digital presence, and the stakes are critical for the federal and public sector to protect data and applications. That’s why Forum Systems has continued to champion our unparalleled security-first pedigree and industry-first certifications with rigorous standards such as NIST FIPS 140-2 Level 2 and Common Criteria NDPP.
On the heels of the company’s entrance into the AFCEA community, Forum Systems is once again demonstrating its dedication to the government sector by joining Carahsoft’s partner network. Serving as a “master government aggregator and distributor for the industry’s leading manufacturers,” Carahsoft is a top-ranked GSA Schedule contract holder and is listed annually among the industry’s fastest-growing firms by Washington Technology, CRN and The Washington Post, among others.
Carahsoft’s network of vendors and level of support is truly top-notch. So, we’re thrilled that the Forum Sentry API Security Gateway is now available for procurement via Carahsoft’s GSA Schedule.
As you know, we recently announced the latest version of the Forum Sentry API Security Gateway. Forum Sentry is now available as an Amazon Machine Image form factor to enable secure API architectures utilizing the Amazon Cloud. Additionally, Forum Sentry now features a robust REST API for automated and elastic deployments in virtual, cloud and containerized environments.
To learn more about Forum Systems’ federal government compliance standards, certifications and API Security and Identity capabilities, we’ll be showcasing our award-winning API Security Gateway technology at the 2018 GEOINT Symposium. The demo will highlight how to deploy your mobile, cloud, B2B, or IoT API strategy easily and securely using COTS technology.
Hosted and produced by the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF), the annual GEOINT Symposium is the premier gathering for the defense, intelligence and homeland security communities. The 2018 event will take place April 22-25 at the Tampa Convention Center in Florida.
For a demo of our state-of-the-art API Security Gateway technology, please stop by and visit us in the Carahsoft pavilion #1319.
Hope to see you there!
