    We show that for an entire function φ belonging to the Fock space F2(Cn) on the complex Euclidean space Cn, the integral operator SφF(z)=∫CnF(w)ez⋅w¯φ(z−w¯)dλ(w),z∈Cn, is bounded on F2(Cn) if and only if there exists a function m∈L(Rn) such that φ(z)=∫Rnm(x)e−2(x−[Formula presented]z)2 dx,z∈Cn. Here dλ(w)=π−ne−|w|2 dw is the Gaussian measure on Cn. With this characterization we are able to obtain some fundamental results of the operator Sφ, including the normality, the C algebraic properties, the spectrum and its compactness. Moreover, we obtain the reducing subspaces of Sφ. In particular, in the case n=1, we give a complete solution to an open problem proposed by K. Zhu for the Fock space F2(C) on the complex plane C (Zhu (2015) [30]).
