Strategic Partnership Enables Government Agencies to Procure Industry’s Only FIPS 140-2 Certified API Gateway Through immixGroup’s Contract Vehicles
WASHINGTON and BOSTON, Dec. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — GOVERNMENT IT FORUM, BOOTH #201A — Forum Systems, Inc. is partnering with immixGroup, Inc. to deliver its FIPS-certified Forum Sentry API Security Gateway to public sector IT organizations through immixGroup’s contract vehicles. The announcement comes in conjunction with the Government IT Forum where Forum Systems is showcasing Forum Sentry in Booth #201A.
Processing and securing more than 10 billion transactions per day worldwide, Forum Sentry significantly reduces the cost and complexity of centralizing security, identity and governance for hundreds of global organizations, including some of the world’s largest federal agencies. The industry leader in SOA, XML and Mobile Gateway technology, Forum Sentry provides FIPS 140-2 level security, has been independently certified by NIST, DoD and the U.S. Treasury, and holds the industry’s only patent for cryptographic acceleration of security processing.
Since 1997, immixGroup has helped technology companies do business with the government. Its public sector aggregation programs give software and hardware manufacturers the resources and expertise they need to grow their public sector business. Government agencies rely on immixGroup to provide them with reliable access to the leading technologies needed to complete their mission objectives.
“Opening up communications between government entities has been a boon for conducting business – but in exposing their critical back-office systems and processes to external partners, those agencies have created a larger attack surface area. That, in turn, is increasing their cyber security risk,” said Bruce Herron, Vice President of Worldwide Sales for Forum Systems. “By partnering with immixGroup, we are reaffirming our long-standing commitment to the public sector in delivering patented, industry-leading gateway technology that accelerates and secures the interagency communication that drives efficient, effective and safer B2B exchange.”
In October, Forum Systems unveiled the latest version of its flagship Forum Sentry. Expanding on its market-leading capabilities, Forum Sentry features intelligent edge caching for network optimization, Amazon S3 integration for secure enterprise-to-cloud storage and expanded OAuth 2.0 support to simplify mobile SSO. Notably, Forum Sentry is the industry’s only FIPS 140-2 secured edge caching solution that provides tight integration with all enterprise-class identity stores to satisfy mobile users’ demand for anytime, anywhere access while ensuring the highest levels of network security.
“Forum Sentry is a FIPS-certified security gateway that meets the unique, exacting requirements of public sector IT organizations,” said Chris Wilkinson, Director of Cyber Security Technologies at immixGroup. “We are pleased to partner with Forum Systems and offer the company’s API Security Gateway through our contract vehicles, enabling government agencies to procure this technology to help meet their business and organizational objectives.”
