An integral component within the ForgeRock Identity Platform, ForgeRock Edge Security supports trusted authentication and granular relationship-based authorization decisions for common IoT design patterns, including device-to-device, device-to-service, and user-to-device.

“Innovating new ways to secure IoT devices, services and things is a core product focus and business imperative for us at ForgeRock, so winning a 2017 IoT Excellence Award is meaningful to the entire ForgeRock team,” said ForgeRock CTO and co-founder Lasse Andresen. “ForgeRock Edge Security is helping our customers to close the IoT security gap and build trusted identity relationships. It’s a secure solution that includes contextual security, open standards, and scales to meet IoT-level demands. Many thanks to TMC and Crossfire Media.”
