ForgeRock Receives Positive Rating in Leading Analyst Firm’s Web Access Management MarketScope Report

SAN FRANCISCO — Dec. 4, 2013 – ForgeRock Inc., a leading provider of identity relationship management solutions, today announced that its product OpenAM received a “positive” rating in Gartner’s report entitled “MarketScope for Web Access Management”[1]. Among other criteria, a “positive” rating includes, “a technology provider’s approach to product development and delivery that emphasizes innovation, differentiation, functionality, methodology and feature set as they map to current and future requirements.”

“With enterprise, cloud, mobile and social technologies colliding, the Web access management market has shifted from on-premises, employee-facing identity and access management to a business world where identity is used to forge relationships with consumers to drive top line revenue,” said Mike Ellis, CEO, ForgeRock. “As a result, customers seek scalable device agnostic solutions that support this new framework of flexible identity and access management. We feel a positive rating from Gartner in their annual MarketScope Report reflects how we’re meeting our customers’ needs by developing cutting-edge solutions like OpenAM that answer the call for relationship centric identity management.”

According to the Gartner report, “By 2016, the traditional Web access management (WAM) market will become a full-fledged access management market as mobile application support, adaptive authentication and fine-grained authorization needs force WAM vendors to provide converged access management products.”

Designed from inception to address the emerging needs of organizations looking to embrace the modern Web, ForgeRock OpenAM is the only “all-in-one” open source access management solution that provides comprehensive consumer-facing identity relationship management (IRM) services, as well as traditional access management capabilities. With OpenAM, organizations are able to address today’s “Internet of Things” by supporting millions of users, devices and “Internet-connected things” across cloud, social, SaaS, and mobile networks.
