ForgeRock: Digital Identity Management From Silicon Valley

Our client of seven years, ForgeRock, is at the forefront of the the digital identity industry. Thanks to its fast, comprehensive, and developer-friendly platform and tools, ForgeRock is changing how organizations communicate with their customers and employees, as well as the devices and means they use to do so.

Headquartered in San Francisco, ForgeRock is a multinational company with offices and customers in Europe, Asia, and Australia. ForgeRock develops access management products for cloud, customer, IoT, mobile, and enterprise environments.

ForgeRock was founded in 2010 in Norway by a group of five former Sun Microsystems employees (the founders), including Lasse Andresen, ForgeRock’s CTO. Shortly after Oracle acquired Sun, it discontinued Sun’s IAM software. After leaving Sun, the founders resumed developing the IAM software, and with $40k of seed money, started ForgeRock.

ForgeRock’s core products include access management, directory services, identity gateway, and identity management. Their platform is used by companies like Vodafone, Toyota, and TomTom, as well as by state institutions in Norway, Canada, and Belgium.

This year, ForgeRock was included in CRN’s 2019 Security 100, and recognized by KuppingerCole analysts as an an Overall Leader and for the strength of its CIAM platform, market presence, and innovation.

Nine years after its founding, ForgeRock has grown from a handful of employees to more than 500. 2017 and 2018 were big years. In 2017, ForgeRock received $88m Series D funding, and this past summer, named former Symantec exec Fran Rosch as its CEO.

We’ve been with ForgeRock since our founding in 2012 and feel a great kinship with them, as their founders and ours are former Sun employees who brought the best of that culture to our respective workplaces. We look forward to continuing this collaborative partnership, and growing together.

Developers are having heated discussions about how we can utilize this technology to develop truly useful apps that provide real value instead of just copying what OpenAI does. We want to contribute to this discussion by showing you how we think about developing autonomous agents at profiq. But first a bit of background.
