Identity Defined Security Alliance reaches two dozen member companies as ForgeRock joins
“ForgeRock is thrilled to join the IDSA, working with other industry leaders to promote and demonstrate the value of taking an identity-centric approach to security,” said in a prepared statement Ben Goodman, senior vice president, global business and corporate development, ForgeRock. “The ForgeRock Identity Platform is a comprehensive digital identity solution for customers, employees and things, and our goal is to help people simply and safely access the connected world. ForgeRock’s participation with the IDSA gives our customers access to even more best practices, frameworks and common use cases to extend their identity strategies.”
IDSA members include identity and security vendors, solution providers and practitioners. Together they share expertise and provide guidance to help companies achieve a stronger security posture. ForgeRock brings to the table extensive experience with Identity Governance and Administration mixed with cloud-first approach to Identity and Access Management. The IDSA was established in 2015 by Ping Identity before relaunching as a non-profit. There are now two dozen member companies of the IDSA.
“As our State of Identity report indicated, organizations are overwhelmingly concerned about identity-related breaches and believe that strong workforce and customer identity management practices can help mitigate the risk,” said Julie Smith, Executive Director of the IDSA. “The addition of ForgeRock to the Alliance, brings another leading voice to the conversation and helps us expand our thought leadership and resources to the customer identity management and IoT security challenges that organizations are facing.”
ForgeRock has recently named David Hope as Senior Vice President for Asia-Pacific and Japan to capitalize on regional growth.
In December, ForgeRock stepped up its Google partnership for identity and access management, won an Open Finance award, and partnered with Accenture and Onfido to bring new identity governance and onboarding tools to ForgeRock platforms.
