ForgeRock has demonstrated innovation leadership by enabling near-instant deployment of its identity platform in multi-cloud environments.
ForgeRock, a leading platform provider of digital identity solutions, released its full ForgeRock Identity Platform deployable on any cloud (including bring-your-own-cloud, hybrid-cloud and multi-cloud models), with preconfigured cloud installation packages for one million, 10 million and 100 million identities.
Increased competitive advantage and productivity
Modern global organisations face three key identity challenges – an ever-growing skills gap and fight for top talent, the requirement to quickly move workloads to multi-cloud environments and the need to maintain an identity platform that enables both friction-free and highly-secure authentication. The latest version of the ForgeRock Identity Platform aims to deliver against these challenges.
Recent Gartner research indicates that by 2020, 75% of organisations will have deployed a multi-cloud model or hybrid-cloud model.
This is largely in response to over-burdened IT teams and resources, as well as rapid, evolving demands of the digital business that require identity management at scale.
To accelerate time-to-market for new initiatives and operational efficiency, global organisations are looking to speed and streamline the deployment, maintenance, and management of a comprehensive identity platform with the latest DevOps models and best practices.
The entire ForgeRock Identity Platform is cloud and DevOps ready, enabling global organisations to build and maintain a production-grade, DevOps-enabled, referenceable, cloud ready architecture, and automate multi-cloud deployments, with supporting DevOps practices using Docker (for containers) and Kubernetes (as the orchestration platform). The release also includes a cost and performance profiling reference guide on cloud vendor offerings as well as dramatically enhanced developer friendly documentation.
Peter Barker, Chief Product Officer for ForgeRock, said: “Multi-cloud deployments are at the heart of digital business and today we have changed the game with true options. ForgeRock will save organisations time and resources and enable them to accelerate new business initiatives by providing turnkey DevOps support for multi-cloud deployments.
“Also, ForgeRock’s innovative features like Intelligent Authentication and FIDO Web Authentication, and our proven scale of hundreds of millions of identities, organisations can now rapidly modernise their identity and access management platforms and realise value quicker than ever before. We’re thrilled to deliver this innovation to the market.”
