ForgeRock is bringing enhanced authentication capabilities to its identity security platform thanks to a new partnership with NoPassword.
The latter’s authentication system leverages a range of factors to identify authorized users, including biometric identification based on facial, fingerprint, iris, and voice recognition, and additional factors retrieved from a user’s mobile device including geo-location. The capabilities should help to the ForgeRock Identity Platform, whose latest iteration sports a new security feature that dynamically selects different authentication mechanisms based on the context of a given login attempt.
In a statement announcing the partnership, NoPassword CTO emphasized the complementary nature of ForgeRock’s and his firm’s solutions, asserting “[t]he real winner of this partnership is our mutual customers who can now leverage both technologies.”
News of the partnership comes soon after ForgeRock announced its ForgeRock Trust Network, a partner program aimed at promoting a variety of third party security solutions to ForgeRock clients. Partners in the curated marketplace include some big names in authentication security including FaceTec, HYPR, and Nok Nok Labs.
