Global Brands Select ForgeRock's Open Identity Stack to Protect
Enterprise, Cloud, Social, and Mobile Applications 
Agile Platform Revolutionizes Identity and Access Management With
Highly Scalable, Open Source, Cost-Effective, All-in-One Model 
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/15/12 --  ForgeRock Inc., the
pioneer of open source Identity and Access Management (IAM), today
announced availability of the first and only unified, 100% Open
Source Stack to secure applications and services across enterprise,
cloud, social and mobile environments. With over 250K downloads in
less than 24 months, the ForgeRock Open Identity Stack is rapidly
building a rich community of global companies working to deploy
identity management infrastructure more easily and economically.  
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
simple, lightweight, modular, and highly scalable identity services.
The developer-friendly open source platform abstracts away
complexity, exposes simple identity services, ensures compliance and
supports developers in easily extending identity and access
management solutions beyond the security perimeter to the cloud. 
Customers Appreciate Fair Share Pricing
 ForgeRock levels the playing

chose ForgeRock "because of the straightforward implementation and
the integrated platform. We needed a solution suited to our specific
needs, but with the capacity to handle identity and access management
across all our environments at Internet scale."
