Learn More About ForgeRock Identity Cloud Express

Quick. Easy. ForgeRock

 

ForgeRock Identity Cloud Express increases productivity and reduces costs by speeding development time for identity needs while saving administrative and IT resource time. With Identity Cloud Express, you can empower developers to build rich applications in minutes with integrated and secure registration, account recovery, and modern multi-factor authentication. Built on top of the full ForgeRock Identity Platform, Identity Cloud Express enables developers to quickly and easily integrate future-proof identity based on OAuth 2.0, OpenIDConnect (OIDC), and WebAuthN into customer-facing applications with minimal configuration.

Accelerate Development

Identity Cloud Express includes preconfigured code designed for the most common customer identity and access management (CIAM) use cases. Both internal and external developers can customize and paste the code directly into any application. Express also features an embeddable JavaScript SDK that abstracts many of the rote operations of token management, such as token exchange, refresh, and version management. Developers and administrators can easily manage individual scopes or features of OpenID Connect (OIDC) from the administration panel for flexible application customization.

Express leverages ForgeRock’s API-First Model, providing one common REST API framework across the entire platform. This results in less complexity for internal and external developers and organizations by providing a single, common method to invoke any identity service.

 

 

Improve Security, Privacy, and Compliance

Identity Cloud Express has multiple features that improve security, privacy, and compliance. These include Intelligent Authentication Flows, multi-factor and strong WebAuthn authentication, and mobile authentication for iOS and Android apps.   

In the cloud, Identity Cloud Express uses tenant isolation in a multi-tenant environment, along with trust zones, to create a strong multi-layered defense. This foundation — combined with secure coding practices and least-privilege management — increases the security and quality of the cloud service. Additional technologies and processes that quickly detect, mitigate, and recover from attacks are also integrated into the service design and operation.

Never Update Again

With  Identity Cloud Express, you’ll never need to update again. The ForgeRock Identity Cloud always has the latest security updates, versions, and features of the ForgeRock Identity Platform. 

Because  Identity Cloud Express is built on top of the full ForgeRock Identity Platform in the cloud and uses identity standards, such as OIDC and OAuth, you will avoid vendor lock-in and focus on meeting your business demands. When your needs become more complex, you can simply and seamlessly unlock the full platform without having to migrate existing user data and configurations.

Identity Cloud Express Components and Capabilities

 

User Self-Service

ForgeRock Identity Management provides a straightforward, customizable web interface and REST API so users can view and change their personal information. Empowering users to control their own data improves their experience and reduces the amount of time they may otherwise spend with IT administrators or support teams. This controls IT and support costs and increases user productivity. Changes to user profile information, such as  passwords, can be synchronized to the user’s target accounts, keeping the data in all of those systems consistent.

Intelligent Authentication

ForgeRock Intelligent Authentication makes building dynamic authentication flows for your users and applications easy with a centralized access design interface.

API Management

Developers or administrators can manage individual OIDC scopes or features easily from the administration panel for greater application customization.

Smart APIs

Identity Cloud Express leverages ForgeRock’s API-First Model, providing one common REST API framework across the entire platform. The common framework abstracts many rote token management operations, such as token exchange, refresh, and version management. This reduces complexity for internal and external developers and organizations by providing a single, common method to invoke any identity service.

Scalability

As your business grows more complex, you can simply and seamlessly unlock the ForgeRock Identity Platform-as-a-Service, without having to migrate existing user data and configurations.

No Vendor Lock-In

Because Cloud Identity Express uses identity standards such as OIDC and OAuth 2.0, you can avoid vendor lock-in and continuously meet your business demands.

Standards-Based Authorization Using OAuth 2.0

Modern applications, APIs, and microservices require modern standards-based approaches to authorization. ForgeRock Access Management platform is a leader in providing OAuth2 and OIDC provider and relying party (RP) capabilities. Whether issuing stateful or stateless JWT-based tokens, ForgeRock Access Management provides a range of out-of-the-box, easily customizable flows and capabilities to protect APIs and microservices at scale.
