ForgeRock Joins Microsoft Intelligent Security Association

ForgeRock Identity Platform Now Integrates with Microsoft Endpoint Manager, Microsoft Azure Active Directory and Azure Sentinel to Support Compliance and Reduce Risk

SAN FRANCISCO — September 21, 2020 —  ForgeRock®, a leading provider in digital identity, today announced it joined the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA), an ecosystem of independent software vendors that have integrated their solutions to better defend against a world of increasing threats. To be considered for MISA, organizations must demonstrate integrations that support the goal of improving enterprise security.

ForgeRock’s integrations with Microsoft include an authentication node that checks a device's posture against Microsoft Endpoint Manager, an authentication node that checks a user's threat risk against Microsoft Azure Active Directory and a Common Audit handler (CAUD) that acts as a bridge to push data from any ForgeRock product to Azure Sentinel, their cloud-native Security Information and Event Manager (SIEM).

“Joining MISA aligns with ForgeRock’s purpose of helping people safely and simply access the connected world,” said Ben Goodman, senior vice president, global business and corporate development, ForgeRock. “By combining the power of Microsoft Security Intelligence with ForgeRock’s identity expertise, our shared customers will be able to deliver more secure, seamless digital experiences.”

The integration capabilities include:

  • Microsoft Endpoint Manager: ForgeRock’s Intelligent Access can now query Microsoft Intune mobile device management system via the Microsoft Graph to see whether or not the end-user's device satisfies a compliance policy before it is allowed to access a protected resource. This includes checking the device posture from Microsoft to see if the phone has been jail-broken or if a machine is running the latest operating system. Microsoft Endpoint Manager is the new unified management platform including both Microsoft Intune and Configuration Manager.
  • Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD): ForgeRock’s Intelligent Access now can query the riskyUser resource type in Azure AD via the Microsoft Graph. This allows customers to take advantage of their current investments and use Azure AD Identity Protection, which processes 6.5 trillion signals per day, to identify, protect and respond to and from identity-based threats. This allows ForgeRock’s platform to see whether someone has potentially been compromised before they are allowed to access a protected resource. Depending on the risk status, the tree can branch off and do an additional authentication step or deny access. 
  • Azure Sentinel: The ForgeRock CAUD is a framework for audit event handlers that are plugged in to ForgeRock’s solutions. The handlers record a ForgeRock event, logging them, for example, into files, relational databases or syslog. Since Microsoft has a number of pre-built visualizations, dashboards, and alerts that work out-of-the-box on Common Event Format (CEF) data, ForgeRock provides a CEF-based event handler in order to seamlessly leverage the CEF artifacts Microsoft has already configured.

“I am pleased to welcome ForgeRock to the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA). Through MISA, we hope to further enable collaboration between leading security technology companies, so together we can better secure and protect our joint customers,” said Ryan McGee, Director Microsoft Security Marketing. “MISA members are the cybersecurity industry leaders, unified by the common goal of helping secure our customers by offering their own valuable expertise and making the association more effective as it expands.”
