ForgeRock Access Management Features

ForgeRock Access Management is just one component of the comprehensive, artificial intelligence (AI)-powered ForgeRock Identity Platform. It includes all the capabilities you need to create dynamic access experiences that will delight your users and keep them coming back for more.

Intelligent Access

An intuitive drag-and-drop interface allows you to orchestrate authentication flows with more flexibility, choice, and security than traditional authenticators. With ForgeRock Intelligent Access, you can easily configure, measure, and adjust multiple login journeys within Zero Trust and CARTA security models using a variety of methods. These include digital signals like device, contextual, behavioral, user choice, analytics, and risk-based factors. When additional use cases arise or logon security needs to be strengthened, you can design and implement new user journeys in record time.

Single Sign-On

The federation services in ForgeRock Access Management can securely share heterogeneous systems or domain boundaries using standard identity protocols (SAML, OAuth2/OpenID Connect). Users can access services that span the cloud and mobile devices, both on premises and off. No more multiple passwords, user profiles, and the added complexity that frustrates users and slows adoption. You can leverage SAML-based federation to provide a range of flexible single sign-on options to many cloud-based providers, like Salesforce and Google.


Using standard identity protocols (SAML, OAuth2/OpenID Connect), the federation services in Access Management can securely share heterogeneous systems or domain boundaries. Modern enterprises like yours have numerous partners and supply chain federation boundaries. Today’s network perimeters and user boundaries are blurring, requiring federation and attribute exchange services that support agile and enabled workforces. As part of the ForgeRock Identity Platform, OpenID Connect and SAML2 services allow multiple organizations to act as one.

Passwordless Logins

ForgeRock Go helps you secure your organization and your users with low-friction passwordless and usernameless authentication, with the added convenience of biometrics. Users – especially consumers – are increasingly seeking passwordless options that allow them to easily access applications using their mobile device biometric or other light touch methods. ForgeRock supports an omnichannel approach that allows for connectivity through virtually any digital device. You can create a secure and seamless login experience by authenticating with any credential on the user’s device that supports FIDO2 WebAuthN.

IoT Identity

Internet of Things (IoT) devices are being added at scale to networks and built into industrial equipment. The opportunity to add new personalized services and create new pathways for revenue are there, but only if these devices are properly managed and secured. ForgeRock Access Management lets you manage the identity of things the same way you manage your human users – with onboarding, authentication, and full lifecycle management. These devices can then participate as fully managed and trusted identities in any digital domain.


ForgeRock Access Management provides authorization policies, from simple, coarse-grained rules to highly advanced, fine-grained entitlements. With ForgeRock Access Management, you can deliver controlled access to resources using simple point-and-click, drag-and-drop operations. You can also use scripting to extend logic during policy evaluation to any resource type. Management is easily extensible to cover today’s massive array of intelligence sources so you can make more informed access control decisions. This includes URLs as well as external services, IoT devices, and things.
