ForgeRock Identity for Canadian Government Organizations

Modernize Government Identity Systems to Deliver Exceptional Experiences and No-Compromise Security

The world’s social and technological landscape is shifting at an unprecedented rate. Within this reality, governments, agencies, and public sector organizations within Canada are faced with several challenges:

  • Legacy systems and complex environments comprising numerous point solutions have created data, process, and communication silos, slowing government workforces.
  • Citizens are demanding the same easy, personalized digital experiences they enjoy within the private sector.
  • Cybercrime and cyber warfare are at an unrelenting, all-time high.
  • New technologies such as AI and ML are pushing existing identity systems to their limit.

Addressing all of the above relies heavily on modern identity and access management (IAM) and identity governance and administration (IGA) capabilities. With ForgeRock’s comprehensive suite of identity solutions and deployment options, you can quickly modernize, integrate, and consolidate legacy IAM and IGA systems to meet fast-evolving public sector trends and support digital transformation, innovation, and security requirements for all use cases (citizens, employees, contractors, things) as you need with ease.
