ForgeRock Launches New Identity Relationship Management Partner Ecosystem With Nine Charter Members

Partnerships Give Customers Rolling Out Secure Cloud-Based and Mobile-Based IRM Services More Flexibility and Accelerated Time to Market

SAN FRANCISCO, CA and PHOENIX, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 06/04/14 -- ForgeRock Inc., the leading open platform provider of identity relationship management (IRM) solutions, announced today that it has launched the ForgeRock™ One Technology Partnership Program with nine new members. The company made the announcement at the First Annual America's Identity Relationship Management Summit being held at the Arizona Biltmore in Phoenix, Arizona. Joining the program are authentication providers CertiVox, Duo Security, Encap Security, inWebo, Nok Nok Labs and Toopher; cloud development platform solutions providers Canonical and Exadel; and behavioral analytics provider Guardian Analytics. Through these partnerships, ForgeRock has started working more closely with innovation leaders focused on delivering tightly integrated IRM solutions for helping organizations build stronger customer relationships by driving more dynamic engagement across any application, device or thing. These partnerships not only provide enterprises with more flexibility and accelerated time to market, but also unparalleled tools for securely extending customer reach, while simultaneously protecting brands from malicious online activity.

ForgeRock has created a disruption in the industry as more organizations are looking for ways to roll out more dynamic services to customers, prospects, partners and suppliers, with the end goal of deepening engagements and growing revenue streams. The ForgeRock One Technology Partnership Program will enable customers of the fastest-growing identity platform vendor to deploy IRM solutions across vertical industries, including education, finance, government, healthcare, insurance and other industries. The partnership will also enable customers to extend their business reach -- through the cloud, the Internet of Things, mobile devices, customer portals, social platforms and the web.

"Our agile, flexible, lightweight and scalable IRM solution facilitates increased access to external audiences. IRM provides advantages over legacy IAM solutions, shifting the focus from simply threat prevention to extending business reach and driving new consumer-facing platforms; IRM also directly impacts revenue growth," said Rich Link, vice president of business and corporate development, ForgeRock. "The launch of this new program underscores the commitment by our technology partners, who share a common vision of providing a simple and secure solution to manage customer interactions across any device or environment."

With more people, devices and things being assigned identities across networks, organizations of all sizes will require IRM services that are simple, flexible, scalable and interoperable with other solutions to help them rapidly verify identities and access privileges as well as enable them to reduce operational and security risks. To help our customers meet these challenges head on, ForgeRock has launched its first technology partner program. The partnerships we have developed with selected identity technology providers as well as leading IT infrastructure and application providers allows us to offer tightly integrated joint solutions to our customers to help them optimize their identity investments, deploy new capabilities via integrated solutions, and accelerate time to market. The benefits of the program for our technology partners include the opportunity to work with key technical resources on solution integration and testing, collaboration on joint marketing and GTM initiatives and the ability to promote product interoperability with ForgeRock's Open Identity Stack.
