Amazon Cognito vs ForgeRock in our news:
2020. ForgeRock nabs $93.5M for its ID management platform
ForgeRock, which has built a platform that is used to help make sure that those accessing services really are who they say are, and help organizations account for how their services are getting used, has raised $93.5 million in funding. It operates in an industry heavy with competition, with some of the others vying for pole position in the various aspects of identity management including Okta, LastPass, Duo Serurity and Ping Identity. But within that list it has amassed some impressive traction. In total it has 1,100 enterprise customers, who in turn collectively manage 2 billion identities through ForgeRock’s platform, with considerably more devices also authenticated and managed on top of that.
2017. Identity management startup ForgeRock raised $88 million
Enterprise identity startup ForgeRock announced an $88 million Series D investment round. Unlike alternatives ForgeRock allows to authenticate not only users, but also machines and sensors attempting to access your systems. CEO Mike Ellis sees his company’s approach to identity as a natural extension of what’s happening the industry. “The relationships between humans, devices, things and services is driving security,” he says. It’s something the company has been building towards from the earliest days, a platform than can scale to deal with identity from a variety of sources beyond just human users. “We believe you have to exist everywhere — at the device and gateway level like a connected car, but also on prem and in cloud,” he said.
