ForgeRock, the platform provider of digital identity management solutions, has announced an extension of the ForgeRock Trust Network partner program designed to unify its extensive community of technology partners, making it possible for new and existing customers to seamlessly integrate complementary technologies to extend and derive the highest value from their ForgeRock Identity solutions.
The program establishes a marketplace where customers can discover third-party identity and access management technologies that are commonly used in conjunction with each other. Clients and partners using the ForgeRock Trust Network also have access to supporting documentation and implementation information to enable easier integration of these solutions.
Participating partners can access tools and support from ForgeRock to build and validate integrations of their technology with the ForgeRock Identity Platform. Higher tier members are required to submit integrations for validation via ForgeRock's own Quality Assurance process in order to receive a ForgeRock certification.
"As the concept of digital identity has grown beyond employees, citizens and customers, to include services, devices and IoT connected 'things', ForgeRock's unique identity platform has become pervasive across industries worldwide," explained Ben Goodman, Vice President, Global Strategy and Innovation at ForgeRock. "The ForgeRock Trust Network is about enabling trust beyond our own identity platform to include some incredibly inventive third party technologies, which together enable the future of digital identity from end-to-end."
Launch partners for the ForgeRock Trust Network include biid, Biometric Signature ID, Callsign, Duo, Entersekt, FaceTec, HYPR, InAuth, iovation, Intensity Analytics, InWebo, Nok Nok Labs, NoPassword, ProxToMe, SecureAuth, VeriClouds, Winkk. ForgeRock expects to add more technology partners in the future.
InAuth, provider of device authentication solutions, will be able to provide existing and prospective clients complementary services through its participation in the ForgeRock Trust Network. "Many of our clients today also work with ForgeRock as part of their overall approach to security and identity management," said Lisa Stanton, President of InAuth. "By joining the ForgeRock Trust Network program, we will be able to help our clients more easily integrate and deploy leading identity solutions, enabling them to further reduce risk, remove friction and combat fraud across their digital channels."
Callsign provides adaptive, multi-layered security that uses AI and deep learning to protect identities and minimise the impact of compromised credentials. "Aligning with ForgeRock's identity platform brings many benefits for all parties," says Paul Anderson, Head of Strategic Alliances at Callsign. "Authentication and identity go hand-in-hand, and teaming with the leading customer identity and access management vendor means we can offer customers the ability to easily and seamlessly connect Callsign's Intelligence Driven Authentication with their ForgeRock CIAM".
Satya Yenigalla, COO of FaceTec, explained their rationale for joining. "This new program promises to provide distinct go-to-market advantages. First, our team can utilize the direct communications channel with ForgeRock's support portal and sample code, providing high levels of customer assistance on demand. The partnership also helps customers select us confidently, knowing our advanced 3D mobile face login SDK, ZoOm with TrueLiveness®, has been developed through a closely-aligned technical relationship with ForgeRock. This is particularly important in use cases where ZoOm's unparalleled, AI-driven liveness detection is proving valuable by providing consistently reliable, highly secure account access on mobile."
