Security by design principle

Forum-LogoAt Forum Systems, API Security Management is our focus. We provide off-the-shelf API Security Gateway technology to create code-free APIs enabling secure access to complex enterprise applications. Many organizations tend to underestimate the potential security challenges of opening up their API’s particularly in the modern era of cyber-attacks that continue to be more sophisticated and damaging. Although enterprises realize the importance of API management, their primary focus needs to shift toward API Security Management to ensure their assets are protected against threats that can not only disrupt your business but could compromise your entire architecture and company perception.

Our flagship API gateway has always provided mission critical large scale solutions with an emphasis on the principle of “security by design”, meaning that security forms an integral foundation and was not added later as an afterthought.
