ForgeRock announced availability of an open source stack to secure applications and services across enterprise, cloud, social and mobile environments.
With more than 250K downloads in less than 24 months, the ForgeRock Open Identity Stack is building a community of global companies working to deploy an identity management infrastructure.
Identity Management is typically overly complex, with high barriers to adoption. The number of users, devices and identities to manage continues to grow exponentially as enterprise security expands to include cloud, social and mobile environments—areas that legacy identity management solutions were not designed to protect.
The Open Identity Stack provides architects, developers and users with an “all-in-one” platform to deploy identity management through lightweight, modular and highly scalable identity services.
The developer-friendly open source platform exposes simple identity services, ensures compliance and supports developers in easily extending identity and access management solutions beyond the security perimeter to the cloud.
“Open source democratizes identity management,” said Lasse Andresen, ForgeRock founder and CEO. “It allows us to build the only integrated, all-in-one identity stack on the market, designed to work together by our developers and community, from the ground up. The beauty of open source is that you can use the parts you like—our platform works seamlessly, even paired with legacy technologies.”
