Profiling a Successful IAM Program

Editor’s note: Ashley Stevenson, Identity Technology Director in ForgeRock’s office of the CTO, and head of our Federal business unit, was a panelist on the Federal Executive Forum radio show in late 2015. He appeared on the Identity & Access Management In Government Progress & Best Practices panel alongside execs from Dell, Symantec and immixGroup, and officials from the Department of Homeland Security, Department of Defense and the NIST. We’re running excerpts from Ashley’s remarks alongside clips from the show. Here's the third clip:

Profiling a Successful IAM Program

So I would add onto what Tom said, and also with the cyber sprint and the activities that took place in DHS to actually implement Single Sign-On that is tied cryptographically to a smart card log-on. Our ForgeRock stack was used within US CIS so that at the time that they needed to onboard a whole bunch of applications as part of cybersprint to translate them from user name and password into a strong single sign-on based on PIV log-on, they were able to quickly and rapidly onboard a whole bunch of their applications, a large percentage in fact, and were able to meet that goal quickly, more quickly than most agencies. So that was definitely a picture of success for us.
