Adaptive Authentication: ForgeRock Named Leader
Adaptive Authentication is the process of gathering additional attributes about users and their environments and evaluating the attributes in the context of risk-based policies. We’re excited to share that ForgeRock has been named an Innovation Leader in the latest KuppingerCole Leadership Compass in this application. Also called ‘Adaptive Risk’ in the ForgeRock Identity Platform, it leverages contextual information including time of day, location, and if the request is from a known device to assess the risk of connections and apply the proper policies. This allows organizations to have greater control over the conditions in which they allow access to a resource. Adaptive authentication provides an ideal checkpoint to require additional authentication when risk is high or to streamline the experience when risk is low, reducing friction in common scenarios. Organizations in all industries are looking to these types of technologies to help secure personal data, protect against fraud and breaches, and deliver a seamless user experience.
