Fuel Digital Transformation with Massive Scale and High Availability

Let’s be frank. Your identity platform is only as good as its foundation. “Identity done right” gets done wrong without a rock-solid directory to store and access all that identity data.

Born from our telco heritage, ForgeRock Directory Services is the gold standard and was designed from the beginning for massive scale. A high-performance, high availability, web-scale directory that delivers throughput in the tens-of-thousands of logins per second to fuel organizations, like yours, with the power needed for today – and tomorrow’s – digital transformation.

Zero Trust and Identity: Evolving from Castles to Cities

The common analogy for protecting computer networks has typically been that of the castle, complete with big walls and surrounding moat. Though this is a good one, the growth and innovation in security technology, including the Zero Trust Model, add complexities. Let’s take a look and see if the analogy still stands.

Augment Your Legacy IAM

Have you ever run into a situation where you know exactly what you have to do to solve the problem but can’t do it? No, I’m not talking about fixing the last season of Game of Thrones. For those running legacy identity and access management (IAM) systems, the decision to modernize isn't so much about whether there is a problem but rather how to go about solving it.

Leveraging AD Nested Groups With AM
2 months ago
This article comes from an issue raised by multiple customers, where ForgeRock Access Management (AM) was not able to retrieve a user’s group memberships when using Active Directory (AD) as a datastore with nested groups. I’ve read in different docs about the “embedded groups” expression, as well as the “transitive groups” or “recursive groups” or “indirect groups”, and finally, the “parent […]
