Today, we’re thrilled to announce that ForgeRock, the leading open platform provider of identity relationship management (IRM) solutions, has chosen to partner with Appery.io to provide its customers with a faster path to enterprise mobilization. The partnership is part of ForgeRock’s One Technology Partnership Program and will enable our mutual customers to accelerate time to market for implementing mobile apps that leverage next-gen identity services.
Lev Shur, vice president of technology consulting at Exadel, explained the partnership as “an exciting opportunity for us to expand our unique cloud-based offer to ForgeRock customers and continue to improve the user experience. Our collaboration will deliver an accelerated method for integrating next generation identity services into mobile, social, enterprise and cloud applications for developers at all levels.”
In Forrester Research’s recent report titled Top 15 Trends S&R Pros Should Watch: Q2 2014, the firm cites identity and access management (IAM) as an area which will see increased importance across the enterprise, stating that “IAM is more than just provisioning employees with and enforcing the appropriate access to corporate resources. It’s the ability to authenticate users and oversee access by a variety of populations and protect a variety of sensitive resources (including data) that may reside on or off the organization’s premises.” As more businesses begin to adopt mobile strategies and cloud services to develop customer facing mobile apps, the market is seeing an increased emphasis on identity and access management for consumers in today’s digital world.
As a result, Appery.io’s technology was selected by ForgeRock to meet this unprecedented demand for secure mobile apps throughout the enterprise. Today’s process for developing such apps is quite slow, limiting mobile innovation. Appery.io and ForgeRock IRM solution enables “Point and Click Identity Management” which dramatically simplifies the process for creating mobile apps that use the full power of the ForgeRock suite.
“We chose to team up with Appery.io because of its visual development environment and easy integration with cloud services and enterprise systems,” said Rich Link, vice president of business and corporate development at ForgeRock. “The goal of this entire initiative is to work more closely with innovation leaders to extend identity relationship management capabilities to any application on any device. We believe Appery.io is an ideal partner to help mobilize enterprise applications leveraging our product.”
Free trials will be immediately available to ForgeRock customers while the joint platform is scheduled to be rolled out in Q3 2014.
