ForgeRock Reports 800% Sales Growth and Continued Innovation with New Consumer and Mobile-ready Platform

SAN FRANCISCO, January 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Milestone OEM agreement, increased deal sizes and industry recognition results in fast-growing adoption of company's identity solutions

ForgeRock, the fastest growing identity platform vendor, achieved exponential sales growth in Europe and North America last year, capitalizing on the shift toward customer-focused, revenue-generating security solutions and the explosion of mobile platforms and Internet-accessible devices and things. As the leading open platform provider of identity relationship management (IRM) solutions, ForgeRock Inc. is enabling enterprises, cloud service providers, and governments to quickly deploy new customer-facing services via a secure and lightweight identity management system designed to work anywhere, anytime, on any device.

"As consumers rapidly adopt cloud services and mobile devices, demand is growing for an identity solution that manages users at Internet scale, makes context-aware decisions in real-time, supports any device and application environment, and monetizes identity across any platform, device, or thing. Organizations must now shift from traditional employee-facing platforms to flexible consumer and partner-facing platforms," said Mike Ellis, CEO, ForgeRock. "We have created an incredibly agile, lightweight, and scalable identity relationship management platform that takes enterprise security strategy beyond mere threat prevention and extends business reach, driving new consumer-facing business models and directly impacting revenue growth."

Numerous customer wins, coupled with strategic partnership agreements drove ForgeRock's growth in 2013. From GEICO's initiative to build an online customer portal to salesforce.com's OEM agreement, leading companies are choosing ForgeRock to harness the power of cloud, mobile, and SaaS to enhance customer, partner, and employee relationships. Other significant 2013 customer wins included Agfa-Gevaert, Axalta, Kabel Deutschland, Telefonica Solutions, Toronto Public Library, Toyota, Vantiv, and Yellow Pages.
