SAN FRANCISCO — JUNE 23, 2020 — ForgeRock®, the leading provider in digital identity, today announced major updates across its ForgeRock Identity Platform. The platform powers simple, secure experiences that reduce business costs and empower users (consumers, workforce and things). Additionally, this latest platform update provides enterprises with cloud enhancements to minimize downtime and modernize DevOps practices.
Identity and Access Management (IAM) has become fundamental to enabling successful digital transformation for global organizations; deploying a cloud-enabled modern platform built for scale and flexibility is key. With dozens of new and updated features, this release of the ForgeRock platform focuses on three core areas: enabling personalized experiences, modernizing IT for business agility and advancing the next generation cloud environment. Together, the latest version of ForgeRock’s solution will radically simplify IAM, giving organizations the tools needed to provide friction-free digital experiences.
Key updates included in the ForgeRock Identity Platform:
- Tailored Experiences: to create exceptional customer journeys at every stage of authentication
- ForgeRock Go: extends the company’s passwordless authentication capabilities by adding usernameless (see separate announcement)
- Enhanced Authentication Experience: self-service trees for password resets, registration and more have been added directly inline with the authentication experience making the costs and confusion of forgotten credentials a thing of the past
- Modernizing IT for business agility
- New UI to help teams spend less time managing and configuring software
- Intelligent Access: enables IT to create and orchestrate and secure personalized login journeys with a point-and-click interface

Sean Joyce, Global and US Cybersecurity, Privacy and Forensics Leader at PwC, said, “When you move identity to a cloud-delivered service it helps accelerate innovation while optimizing value. ForgeRock has the flexibility to deploy identity and access management on any cloud platform, helping drive value for our customers. The ForgeRock Identity Cloud helps reduce deployment costs and on-going software management. Also, in the case of customers not ready for an as-a-service delivery model, out-of-the-box Cloud and DevOps capabilities can help speed deployments."
