ForgeRock Delivers Industry’s Fastest, Most Comprehensive and Developer-Friendly Identity Management Solution for Multi-Cloud Deployment

Features Pre-Defined Cloud Installation Packages – 1 Million, 10 Million and 100 Million – for Deployments in Minutes

LAS VEGAS, Dec. 03, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ForgeRock again demonstrates innovation leadership by enabling near-instant deployment of its identity platform in multi-cloud environments. At Gartner IAM, the leading Identity and Access Management conference, ForgeRock®, the leading platform provider of digital identity solutions, today is releasing its full ForgeRock Identity Platform deployable on any cloud (including bring-your-own-cloud, hybrid-cloud, and multi-cloud models), with preconfigured cloud installation packages for one million, 10 million and 100 million identities.

The company is at Gartner IAM in Las Vegas to demonstrate the ease of deploying 100 million users on the ForgeRock Identity Platform on any cloud – in booth #301. A video demonstration of this new capability is also available.

Increase Competitive Advantage and Productivity
Today’s global organizations face three key identity challenges: an ever-growing skills gap and fight for top talent, the requirement to quickly move workloads to multi-cloud environments, and the need to maintain an identity platform that enables both friction-free and highly-secure authentication. The latest version of the ForgeRock Identity Platform delivers against these challenges.

Recent Gartner research indicates that by 2020, 75% of organizations will have deployed a multi-cloud model or hybrid-cloud model.* This is largely in response to over-burdened IT teams and resources, as well as rapid, evolving demands of the digital business that require identity management at scale. To accelerate time-to-market for new initiatives and operational efficiency, global organizations are looking to speed and streamline the deployment, maintenance, and management of a comprehensive identity platform with the latest DevOps models and best practices.

Enter ForgeRock, as the leading identity platform:

  • the first capable of deploying on any cloud (including Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, OpenShift and Microsoft Azure) for millions of identities within minutes
  • the first to easily protect workloads on any cloud (including bring-your-own-cloud, hybrid-cloud, and multi-cloud models), eliminating cloud vendor lock-in
  • to support millions of any type of identity (people, devices, and ‘things’)
  • to enable rapid solution development in a repeatable way
  • to conduct a fast, simple, highly available deployment without sacrificing rich features and extensibility
  • to reduce implementation costs by 25% and increase ROI by 50%

The entire ForgeRock Identity Platform is cloud and DevOps ready, enabling global organizations to build and maintain a production-grade, devops-enabled, referenceable, cloud ready architecture, and automate multi-cloud deployments, with supporting DevOps practices using Docker (for containers) and Kubernetes (as the orchestration platform). The release also includes a cost and performance profiling reference guide on cloud vendor offerings as well as dramatically enhanced developer friendly documentation.

Peter Barker, chief product officer for ForgeRock, said, “Multi-cloud deployments are at the heart of digital business, and today we have changed the game with true options. ForgeRock will save organizations time and resources, and enable them to accelerate new business initiatives by providing turnkey DevOps support for multi-cloud deployments. Also, ForgeRock’s innovative features like Intelligent Authentication and FIDO Web Authentication, and our proven scale of hundreds of millions of identities, organizations can now rapidly modernize their identity and access management platforms and realize value quicker than ever before. We’re thrilled to deliver this innovation to the market.”

President acknowledges improved communication among economic actors

Jakarta, (ANTARA News) – Communication among economic players across Indonesia is getting better and has had a positive impact on the economy, according to President Joko Widodo (Jokowi).

“I have seen that communication and consolidation among economic actors and market players in the monetary, fiscal, and market sectors are getting better,” President Jokowi remarked while attending the opening ceremony of CEO Networking 2018 at the Ritz Carlton Pacific Place here on Monday.

The president noted that Indonesia currently also requires leaders in all open sectors, including the economic sector, adding that they should be able to respond quickly to global changes.

“If we are still rambling on bureaucracy and still make things complicated, we will be left behind,” Jokowi noted, highlighting that the nations competitiveness needs to be boosted swiftly.

The head of state also explained that Indonesia must improve the quality of its human resources through vocational training and vocational schools.

“(Improving the quality of human resources holds significance since) global changes are now occurring at a very fast pace. The government, private sector, and state-owned companies, all of them, must conduct it on a massive scale, and there are a million other things that we also have to upgrade,” the president stated while referring to the improvement in the quality of human resources.

Furthermore, the head of state elaborated that Indonesia needs agents of transformation at the village, district, provincial, and also national levels.

Jokowi then called for a shift in strategy from infrastructure development to human resource development.

The president emphasized that this must be done to avoid the middle-income economic trap.
