Agile platform revolutionizes identity and access management with highly scalable, open source, cost-effective, all-in-one model

San Francisco, CA: ForgeRock Inc., the pioneer of open source Identity and Access Management (IAM), has announced the availability of the first and only unified, 100% Open Source Stack to secure applications and services across enterprise, cloud, social and mobile environments. With over 250K downloads in less than 24 months, the ForgeRock Open Identity Stack is rapidly building a rich community of global companies working to deploy identity management infrastructure more easily and economically.

 

Identity Management is typically overly complex, with high barriers to adoption. The number of users, devices, and identities to manage continues to grow exponentially as enterprise security expands to include cloud, social, and mobile environments - areas that legacy identity management solutions were not designed to protect.

The Open Identity Stack provides architects, developers, and users with an “all-in-one” platform to deploy identity management through simple, lightweight, modular, and highly scalable identity services. The developer-friendly open source platform abstracts away complexity, exposes simple identity services, ensures compliance and supports developers in easily extending identity and access management solutions beyond the security perimeter to the cloud.

Customers Appreciate Fair Share Pricing

ForgeRock levels the playing field with fair-share subscription offerings to support any Open Identity Stack deployment. Fortune 500 healthcare services and information technology company, McKesson Corporation (NYSE: MCK), is one of the hundreds of commercial customers that have purchased subscriptions with ForgeRock for unlimited support, indemnification, real-time updates, technical expertise, and ongoing R&D investment in the Open Identity Stack.

“ForgeRock’s Open Identity Stack provides the next generation of identity management technology at a rational price,” said Michael Wilson, VP and CISO at McKesson Corporation, a global health industry leader. “Our developers appreciate the inherent flexibility and scalability of this platform, which allows us to grow and build out over time.”

Roger Holmes, Head of Software Engineering at BSkyB (LSE:SKY), a leading pay-TV and home communications provider in the UK and Ireland, chose ForgeRock “because of the straightforward implementation and the integrated platform. We needed a solution suited to our specific needs, but with the capacity to handle identity and access management across all our environments at Internet scale.”

“Proprietary technologies can preclude innovation that is inherent in open interfaces. ForgeRock, open source and scalable, addresses the full potential of identity management in the new, often virtual and always dynamic enterprise,” said Scott McNealy, Chairman/Co-founder of Wayin, Co-founder of Curriki.org, Advisor/Investor in ForgeRock. “As an open source technology company, ForgeRock has created a robust and innovative community of vendors, developers and customers that ensures low barriers of entry and exit while providing trusted and reliable implementations of IDM."

“Open source democratizes identity management,” said Lasse Andresen, ForgeRock founder and CEO. “It allows us to build the only integrated, all-in-one identity stack on the market, designed to work together by our developers and community, from the ground up. The beauty of open source is that you can use the parts you like—our platform works seamlessly, even paired with legacy technologies.
