Your Passage to the Future
Protect Against Malicious Activity With API Security
The volume of cyber attacks has exploded over recent years, as hackers continuously evolve techniques, launching more sophisticated attacks that impact organizations and customers. Fraud and malicious activity aren’t limited to authentication exploits. Unsecured APIs are also targets. API breaches are often caused by a lack of authorization and insight into system health.
With ForgeRock Identity Gateway, you can quickly protect your APIs and users by leveraging a gateway to front APIs. Identity Gateway serves as both a reverse proxy and as an authorization enforcement point for any type of traffic. To help maintain healthy services and protect against breaches and distributed-denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, leverage Identity Gateway to monitor API traffic, throttle traffic volume, and detect anomalies.
ForgeRock Is the Leading Identity API Platform Vendor
ForgeRock is recognized by KuppingerCole as the overall Identity API Platform Market Leader in all categories including Product, Innovation, and Market Leadership.

Support a Zero Trust Security Model
Organizations struggle to deliver real-time, continuous authentication and authorization that leverage a Zero Trust Security and continuous adaptive risk and trust assessment (CARTA) model. ForgeRock supports these deployment architectures, capturing context at authentication and storing it on the user’s session. Whenever a user attempts to access a protected resource, the context is reassessed to determine the level of trust. A change in context — such as IP address or geolocation — triggers events such as re-authentication, and can be used by Identity Gateway for contextual data redaction.
To allow or deny access based on context, risk, and behavioral data, configure Identity Gateway to work with ForgeRock Access Management. Identity Gateway also enables you to contextually redact data in real time to better protect user privacy and secure the experience when risk levels are high.
Integrate and Modernize Legacy Apps
Not all organizations have the ability to immediately migrate to modern systems. That’s why it’s critical to have the flexibility to coexist with legacy systems and apps, so you can modernize and migrate at your own pace. Whether you are making a quick move or migrating gradually, Identity Gateway enables legacy and greenfield systems and apps to talk to each other fluidly and securely, so you can focus on modernization efforts.
In some cases, there are apps where no code changes are permitted, like those using web policy agents or owned by third parties where no agents are available. ForgeRock Identity Gateway establishes a virtual perimeter around these apps and acts as a reverse proxy, enforcing authentication and authorization. This provides better security and enables organizations to use the latest industry standards to consistently enforce authorization across apps, APIs, and microservices.
