Organizations will now be able to swiftly authorize and authenticate whether a user has access privileges to certain cloud applications due to the partnership.

FREMONT, CA: It is more important than ever for firms to pursue a "cloud-first" approach to enable their businesses to shift with agility and at scale. However, every new instance of public cloud has the potential to stir up a security storm, as its name suggests. Security requirements for any business are unlikely to be met by the default cloud instance settings. ForgeRock Trust Network, an exclusive technological ecosystem of more than 130 partners in authentication, risk and fraud management, biometrics, and more, has named iboss a new member. To allow employees to securely connect to any application on any device while working anywhere, the iboss Cloud Platform interfaces with ForgeRock Identity Cloud and the ForgeRock Identity Platform.

“Employees have always wanted immediate access to the applications they need to be productive. However, as the workforce continues to be remote or hybrid, organizations who havent adopted a Zero Trust security architecture have been challenged with how to best support these employees,” states Paul Martini, CEO of iboss. “With iboss and ForgeRock, organizations can apply security policies to any employee, regardless of where they choose to work or what device they are using. Together, were providing enterprises with the ability to execute a seamless, secure and accelerated cloud security transformation.”

iboss and ForgeRock can instantly authenticate and authorize whether a user has privileges to access certain cloud applications, allowing IT administrators to securely regulate user connections to applications based on user role-based zero trust policies. Users are provisioned, and policies are enforced thanks to the ForgeRock instantly interacting with iboss.

“We are always looking for innovative, best-of-breed solutions to add to the ForgeRock Trust Network and, as a leader in Secure Access Service Edge, iboss more than meets that criteria,” states Ben Goodman, SVP, Global Business, and Corporate Development at ForgeRock. “Our technology alliance partnership with iboss will help customers better support their modern workforces by ensuring users have fast and safe access to the applications they need.”
