Forum Systems to Share Insights on Simplifying and Securing AMQP

By | Date posted: September 15, 2016

CTO Jason Macy to Host Industry Experts at Inaugural London AMQP Summit

BOSTON, September 15, 2016  Forum Systems Inc. today announced that CTO Jason Macy will host a panel of industry experts at their London AMQP Summit on Wednesday, September 28 at the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel. During the inaugural event, attendees will learn tips and techniques for implementing the Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP) into their enterprise architectures and experience a live demonstration that showcases Forum Systems’ award-winning API Security Gateway, Forum Sentry.

Developed by the OASIS open standards consortium, AMQP provides a platform-agnostic method for ensuring business information is safely transported between applications, among organizations, within mobile infrastructures and across cloud computing environments. Designed for security and reliability, the protocol helps global organizations avoid the pitfalls inherent in proprietary technologies, offering a means to lower the cost of enterprise middleware software integrations through open interoperability and commoditization.

AMQP’s business value is unquestioned. Deutsche Börse, JPMorgan, NASA, Google and AT&T are just some of the world’s most recognizable brands that have successfully leveraged AMQP to power their critical systems. Additionally, the UK Government is promoting their preference for AMQP-enabled products over proprietary middleware for cost savings, agility and vendor-agnostic implementations.

“AMQP has emerged as the next-generation messaging framework in place of proprietary JMS implementations, and the adoption of AMQP is growing rapidly, expanding into cloud providers and the Internet of Things,” notes Macy. “We are pleased to host this interactive session in London to discuss the principles and best practices for securing AMQP deployments.”

In June, Forum Systems announced that Forum Sentry is the world’s first secure proxy technology to support the AMQP 1.0 standard. Building on its industry-first NIST FIPS 140-2 and NIAP Network Device Protection Profile (NDPP) certification, Forum Sentry is now the only product with native secure AMQP proxy functionality, allowing organizations to perform seamless in-line, deep-content inspection and validation assurance of AMQP communications – without requiring code changes or incurring additional capital expenditure costs.

Kicking off at 11:30 a.m. BST, Forum Systems’ London AMQP Summit is a complimentary, half-day event that includes lunch. The Summit will feature live demonstrations of Forum Sentry’s built-in, point-and-click capabilities that enable the API Security Gateway to serve as the cornerstone of simplifying and securing AMQP implementations. Key topics covered by the panel of experts will include:

  • Foundations of API Security Gateway architecture design and in-line AMQP proxy.
  • The security of data privacy, integrity and threat mitigation of AMQP messaging.
  • Simplifying protocol mixing of AMQP with other protocols for easier integration.
  • Efficiency of no-code, policy-based, integrated AMQP capabilities.
