ForgeRock Trust Network Unveiled

Today we’re announcing the launch of the ForgeRock Trust Network, our new global partner program that will help our sales and services teams to collaborate more closely with our system integrator and technology partners to accelerate profitable growth and deliver successful customer outcomes.

What’s New & Different?

Simply put, the ForgeRock Trust Network is designed to make engagement with ForgeRock easier for our partners. Working with ForgeRock will become simplified, consistent and reliable. Trust is the key word here, and serves as the foundation on which we’ll build out our business with our existing partners. At the same time, we are attracting new partners that will enable ForgeRock to extend our ecosystem, and add capabilities and new specializations. This added reach is good news for our customers who will now have access to a wider range of digital identity technologies and services than ever before – a package of offerings that will enable ForgeRock customers to simultaneously master business, organizational and technological challenges. The new ForgeRock Trust Network will enable ForgeRock to respond in collaboration with our partners to the increasing market demand for next-generation identity management technology and solutions.

What Does the ForgeRock Trust Network Mean for Our Customers?

In partnership with ForgeRock, and through the use of the ForgeRock Identity Platform™, our partners can help private companies and public organizations build secure, trusted relationships with customers, employees and citizens anywhere, through any device or connected thing. The next-generation ForgeRock Identity Platform is designed to empower enterprises to rapidly establish new revenue-generating services anywhere and in any environment, via a secure, lightweight identity management system. Our platform also transforms government organizations, by enabling the secure delivery of online services to millions of citizens and workers – services that maximize access, improve transparency, and boost productivity. By working collaboratively with our valued partners we can jointly meet the needs of our ever-expanding list of customers, and grow our businesses together.

How Is the New Program Structured?

The ForgeRock Trust Network provides opportunities for both resell and sales referrals across the EMEA, Americas and Asia Pacific regions, and will help customers to discover and engage with partners that have invested in the domain and solution expertise needed to build highly scalable, secure and personalized digital services on the ForgeRock Identity Platform. The ForgeRock Trust Network partnership framework is built around three core partner categories:

  1. Delivery Partners work within defined geographies to offer ForgeRock-related consulting and implementation services to customers.
  2. Registered Partners work with ForgeRock field teams on a deal-by-deal basis to proactively position and sell ForgeRock solutions to prospects within defined geographies around the world.
  3. Strategic Partners work with ForgeRock field teams to proactively position and sell ForgeRock solutions to prospects within defined geographies around the world. They may also provide consulting and implementation services as needed to clients as part of their offerings.

How Will Partners Benefit from Joining the ForgeRock Trust Network?

Partners enrolling in the ForgeRock Trust Network will profit from a tiered benefit structure that will enable them to access software licenses, technical support, consulting and professional services packages, sales, training and marketing resources, as well as a simplified discount structure for resellers and a fee structure for sales referral partners. The ForgeRock Trust Network offers partners the opportunity to establish and grow profitable new revenue streams by incorporating the ForgeRock Platform into their solution offerings. It will also enable partners to address legal requirements for user consent. Finally, ForgeRock has committed to a “partner first” business model and made significant investments in growing and enabling the partner ecosystem.

Several of our partners are committing to the ForgeRock Trust Network right from its inception, and are lending their voices to our launch:
