ForgeRock Recognized on CRN’s 2018 Security 100 List
The Channel's definitive roster of top security tech suppliers names ForgeRock in the “Identity Management and Data Protection” category
SAN FRANCISCO, March 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ForgeRock®, the leading platform provider of digital identity management solutions, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named ForgeRock to its annual Security 100 list. This project recognizes the coolest security vendors in each of five categories: Endpoint Security; Identity Management and Data Protection; Network Security; SIEM and Security Analytics; and Web, Email and Application Security. ForgeRock is listed in the “Identity Management and Data Protection” category.
The companies on CRN’s Security 100 list have demonstrated creativity and innovation in product development as well as a strong commitment to delivering those offerings through a vibrant channel of solution providers. In addition to recognizing security technology vendors for outstanding products and services, the Security 100 list serves as a valuable guide for solution providers trying to navigate the IT security market. The list aids prospective channel partners in identifying the vendors that can best help them improve or expand their security offerings.
The ForgeRock Identity Platform was developed to integrate with any digital service. Unlike legacy identity management applications, the ForgeRock platform is designed for the distinct needs of organizations building out businesses in the internet of things, and for large-scale customer-oriented implementations where CIAM capabilities are a must. By securely connecting people, devices, and things, ForgeRock makes it possible for everyone and everything to interact in today’s IoT world. With billions of devices coming online every year, organizations need a flexible platform that scales. Global organizations rely on the ForgeRock Identity Platform to manage billions of digital identities on new cloud, mobile, and IoT services, all with one unified platform.
“The core elements of today’s businesses, both large and small, depend upon robust and reliable cybersecurity solutions,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “Unprecedented streams of data, the sweeping transition to cloud computing, vast networks of wireless systems, the rapidly growing internet of things—all these advances necessitate increasingly complex and adaptive security measures. CRN’s 2018 Security 100 list recognizes top vendors that are meeting this extraordinary demand with the most innovative security technologies on the market, enabling businesses to grow uninterrupted.”
“We’re excited to once again be named to CRN’s Security 100 List,” says ForgeRock interim CEO and Chief Financial Officer, John Fernandez. “Inclusion on the list is validation of ForgeRock’s commitment to innovation in driving the digital identity space, as well as demonstration of our commitment to the channel, which has never been stronger.”
The Security 100 list will be featured in the April 2018 issue of CRN and online at www.crn.com/security100.
