ForgeRock adds AimBrain biometric modules and expands support for cloud deployments
AimBrain’s five biometric authentication modules have been added to the ForgeRock Trust Network, bringing both visible and invisible server-side authentication to the ForgeRock Identity Platform.
ForgeRock’s digital identity marketplace recently reached 50 technology partners despite launching just a year ago, and the company has also launched cloud deployment features for its ForgeRock Identity Platform, with preconfigured cloud installation packages for 1 million, 10 million, and 100 million users. ImageWare’s GoVerifyID was added to the ForgeRock Network in September.
The rapid, open API-based deployments offered by AimBrain can fulfil ForgeRock customers’ authentication requirements and enhance their fraud prevention strategies, the company says.
“Collaboration is critical today as private and public sector organisations have digital identity requirements that differ by region, use case, regulatory obligations and channel,” says Antony Bream, Global Head of Enterprise Sales at AimBrain. “User authentication – that is protecting yourself against fraud and losses by being sure that your user is who they say they are – is complex and rarely satisfied with an out-of-the-box solution. By joining the ForgeRock Trust Network, we have effectively extended our route to market whilst adding our award-winning face, voice, lipsync, behaviour and anomaly detection modules to the armoury available to ForgeRock customers in the fight against fraud.”
AimBrain also recently introduced a free development environment for its biometric authentication technologies.
Announcing its new deployment capabilities at identity and access management conference Gartner IAM, ForgeRock says it is the first identity platform capable of deploying to any cloud, including Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, OpenShift, and Microsoft Azure to provide millions of identities in minutes. The company also says it easily protects workloads on any cloud, eliminating cloud vendor lock-in, and can support millions of instances of any kind of identity. ForgeRock’s platform can reduce implementation cost by 25 percent, and increase ROI by 50 percent, according to the announcement.
