GEICO Selects ForgeRock to Support Online Customer Portal Initiative

One of the fastest-growing major auto insurers in the US leverages ForgeRock’s Open Identity Stack to create a secure, modern online experience

SAN FRANCISCO — July 18, 2013 — ForgeRock Inc., the leading open platform provider of identity and access management (IAM) solutions, today announced that it has been selected by GEICO to support their initiative to build an online customer portal and provide a secure, modern online experience with ForgeRock’s Open Identity Stack products. GEICO, the third-largest private passenger auto insurer in the United States, provides 24-hour service, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, and is transforming their business to meet customer demands by offering state-of-the-art, next generation Web services.

Security and identity management are critical in providing a modern online experience. The ForgeRock Open Identity Stack, including OpenAM, OpenDJ and OpenIDM, will serve as the foundation of GEICO’s online customer portal. With Open Identity Stack, GEICO is able to quickly integrate the lightweight, modular, open source ForgeRock technology with their architecture and Web services to seamlessly scale to meet the needs of today’s modern Web strategy, including mobility.

“Initially, we considered traditional, closed source enterprise IAM vendors to help us drive our vision forward, but it quickly became evident that they would not be able to offer a solution that would be able to integrate or scale as quickly as we needed,” said Greg Kalinsky, senior vice president and chief information officer, GEICO. “We selected ForgeRock as our IAM technology partner because of their success in delivering the Open Identity Stack in an easy-to-deploy, highly scalable approach to enterprise, cloud and mobile environments. To us, ForgeRock understood what it meant to create a modern, best-in-class Web experience for our large and exceedingly diverse customer base.”

The ForgeRock Open Identity Stack is the only unified, 100 percent open source identity stack to secure applications and services across private, hybrid, and public clouds, as well as SaaS, mobile, and enterprise systems. ForgeRock’s simple-to-deploy architecture provides the power, economics, and agility required for GEICO to establish secure access controls for mission-critical applications at scale across any population, whether they’re consumers or employees, as they deploy their online customer portal.

“With GEICO choosing ForgeRock, they further validate the fact that IAM is not just a tool for security, but also for business agility,” said Mike Ellis, CEO, ForgeRock. “Our unique approach to identity and access management provides GEICO with the flexibility and scalability necessary to tightly control their systems as they globally expand their reach to consumers and agents through their new online customer portal.”
