ATARC Zero Trust Presentation

ATARC and Forum Systems presented the ATARC Zero Trust Lab Scenarios where the ATARC Zero Trust Lab showcases technical architectures and Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) hardware and software solutions to address the Zero Trust use cases as defined by CISA. By enabling this hardware and software evaluation environment, ATARC has created a unique space for Federal agencies to better assess software products.

The Forum Sentry product from Forum Systems is a state-of-the-art, rapidly scalable, rules-based security technology that will allow Federal organizations to deploy a best in-class, nimble, agile, and highly performant enterprise Policy Enforcement Point (PEP) solution for a Zero Trust network model. Forum Sentry unifies information assurance, continual dynamic authentication, and deep-content data analysis to achieve Zero Trust security. This comprehensive approach provides capabilities across the core pillars of the Zero Trust Capability Model.

Forum Sentry is a uniquely qualified product built as a security hardened technology from the ground up. It combines authentication, authorization, data security, data privacy, data leakage, intrusion prevention, and full transaction audit logging. Forum Sentry is deployable in hardware or virtual formats (such as hardware appliance, VMWare Image, Amazon Image, Azure Image, Docker Image, Linux Image, and Windows Image).

We deliver Zero Trust by using Forum Sentry as the secure Information Assurance PEP to ensure continual authentication, authorization, and inspection of the devices, applications, and users. The technology provides a logical abstraction of the application and performs traffic flow analysis and enforcement without impacting the existing applications. This approach delivers on the NIST SP 800-207 Zero Trust tenants.
