ForgeRock has joined the Google Cloud Partner Advantage Program at the Premier level, becoming the first Premier identity management vendor. This announcement follows many years of collaboration between the two companies.

Google Cloud specialises in delivering a secure, open, intelligent enterprise cloud platform. It has the ultimate aim to help bring people, insights, and ideas together, and to bring new services to market faster and drive commerce.

Google Cloud Platform (GCP) has been a natural fit for ForgeRock's development in the cloud, the company states.

Last month, ForgeRock delivered its Identity Cloud, built on GCP, which includes the industry's first Identity Platform-as-a-Service (IDPaaS) as well as ForgeRock Identity Cloud Express - a SaaS, developer-focused solution for embedding modern identity capabilities into apps.

ForgeRock has also demonstrated deploying 100+ million users on its platform with GCP. Additionally, organisations worldwide deploy the ForgeRock Identity Platform which is fully cloud deployable, with an enterprise-grade, DevOps-enabled, and cloud-ready architecture.

ForgeRock automates multi-cloud deployments with supporting DevOps practices using Docker (for containers) and Kubernetes (as the orchestration platform).

Google Cloud director of partnerships Manvinder Singh says, “We are delighted to welcome ForgeRock as a Google Cloud Premier Partner. This builds on our extensive prior collaboration delivering Identity and Access Management solutions to our joint customers and building on Google Cloud.

"We look forward to growing our partnership with ForgeRock even further on behalf of customers.

ForgeRock senior vice president of corporate and business development Ben Goodman, says, “ForgeRock and Google Cloud share a commitment to performance, innovation and customer success, and our product team has worked with GCP to leverage DevOps and Kubernetes as core capabilities in powering all of our cloud solutions, so were thrilled to become Premier Partners in the GCP program.

The ForgeRock Identity Platform offers capabilities for identities including workforce, consumer, and things, fueled by identity orchestration with adaptive and contextual authentication, integration accelerators, and security, privacy, and consent features.

The platform is cloud and DevOps ready, enabling customers to automate cloud deployments and to deploy identities on any cloud. ForgeRock protects workloads on any cloud including bring-your-own-cloud, hybrid-cloud, and multi-cloud models, eliminating cloud vendor lock-in.
