Daon and ForgeRock have extended their partnership, with the former’s IdentityX platform being integrated into the ForgeRock Identity Cloud.
The integration means that ForgeRock customers can add Daon’s multi-factor authentication technology – including support for multimodal biometrics – to any ForgeRock Identity Cloud workflow. And they can do through a streamlined, no-code interface, allowing administrators to implement passwordless MFA easily and quickly.
The news comes after Daon first tailored its biometric platform for compatibility with the ForgeRock Identity Platform in 2020. The ForgeRock Identity Cloud, meanwhile, played an important role in helping ForgeRock to obtain ISO certification in 2021, before the solution went on to be listed through the Google Cloud Marketplace.
“As cloud-based initiatives continue to expand, we have positioned our IdentityX platform to grow with the industry,” explained Daon’s President of the Americas, Conor White. “Integrating IdentityX with ForgeRock’s cloud platform will provide customers with a frictionless user experience while increasing overall security.”
Daon’s IdentityX platform made its debut on the Amazon Web Services marketplace earlier this month, making face, fingerprint, and voice biometrics tools immediately available to AWS customers. Daon CEO Tom Grissen spoke about IdentityX in detail in a recent interview with FindBiometrics.
