You may have heard of ForgeRock, the providers of open identity solutions. But if you have been busy (and who hasn’t been?) you might not have realized the rapid uptake of their solution among a diverse, global customer base. I spoke with their CTO and founder Lasse Andresen today and was happy to hear the great penetration these solutions are seeing.
Forgerock benefits from Billions of dollars of R&D into open source solutions by a large community including many commercially supported developers. what do they provide? A new and simple approach to delivering identity services. Here is more from their website:
Our open identity stack delivers identity and access management solutions to your enterprise, cloud, social and mobile systems.
Consisting of three core products — OpenAM , OpenDJ and OpenIDM — the platform enables agile business innovation through a scalable, lightweight infrastructure and active collaboration within the ForgeRock community.
For technical staff, this is an entirely new and simple approach to delivering identity services for enterprise, social, cloud and mobile applications. For business owners, it means creating innovative services that run faster and cost less and gaining efficiencies using a common identity services platform to build reusable business processes and controls.
How our open identity stack sets the ForgeRock stage:
Our open identity stack works as an efficient, cohesive whole to enable organizations to innovate anywhere — enterprise, social, cloud or mobile — to address global growth initiatives.
Our open identity stack connects enterprise, cloud, social and mobile security strategies into a single, common platform while maintaining enterprise-level security.
Our open identity stack provides the flexibility to implement only what is needed when it matters most — nothing more, nothing less.
Traditional, closed-source identity management software is complicated, expensive and incompatible with cloud and mobile devices.
Built by acquisition rather than design, these legacy products saddle businesses with a complex migration and integration process and burden developers with multiple user interfaces, APIs, libraries and documentation — we’re changing that.
Our open identity stack is democratizing identity management.
Pay at Point of Value
Our open identity stack is delivered to you straight out of the box. If you like what you see, we offer unlimited support. We develop and support our products ourselves so you never pay for the cost of acquisition.
We’re the first company to design an integrated, open-source identity platform for enterprise, cloud, social and mobile environments. Our products are purpose-built to work together anywhere.
Our identity solutions are unified, designed for the developer using a single, common programming interface (REST) and architected from the ground up for Internet scale.
