Directory Services

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.
