Identity Federation has become an essential business need to modernize capability and adapt to the evolving landscape of computing. The focus to achieving Identity Federation often revolves around product solutions that attempt to solve identity federation with agents, adapters, and rip-and-replace environment disruption. Forum Systems provides a different vision and proven capability to achieve secure identity federation.
As enterprise and government organizations rely more heavily on APIs for business transactions with partners and customers, the need for API security is greater than ever. Building a proper API security infrastructure can be a challenge for many organizations. Without the right approach, API architectures become complex, costly and expose organizations to serious security risks.
Rapidly growing demand for exposing and consuming APIs, which enables organizations to create new business models and connect with partners and customers, has tipped the industry towards adopting lightweight RESTful APIs to expose their existing enterprise services and corporate data to external consumers. Unfortunately, many organizations tend to underestimate potential security challenges of opening up their APIs without a proper security strategy and infrastructure in place.
Building the bridge between what organizations have on-premise today and what they have in the cloud is all about opening up IT in a secure way. It’s about enabling agility and the connected enterprise while maintaining control of information security.
Today, enterprise application architects and developers are challenged with providing secure access to a constantly growing number of APIs. With each new app, architectures become larger and more complex, making integration less and less scalable.
