"I like the intelligent authentication feature."
"The solution is very scalable. We have a lot of users that have been increasing over the years that we have been using it. We have approximately 20,000 users."
"The solution integrates well and it is important for them to keep up with the current trends in the market quickly enough, and they have been doing a good job at it."
"Even though we have very small business interests with them today, they see that we plan on growing drastically over the next two years. Therefore, we have excellent support and we are now at a point where we are not calling tech support. We pick up a phone and call the Account Manager and they'll get everything resolved for us. We don't have to queue along with everybody else and go through a long process."
"ForgeRock has CIAM, which other products didn't have, and they have DevOps ready."
"Their access management solution, OpenAM, is most valuable because it meets the needs of a lot of users."
"This is a user-friendly solution."
"It's pretty stable as a product."
"The solution requires more simplified customization. However, part of the problem is my clients determining their own preferences. Technology can help and do many things, but you have to define your own policies to ensure that the solution or service works within those parameters. Helping customers understand their business and different processes is another issue not relating to the functionality of this solution."
"In an upcoming release, the solution could improve by limiting the need to do customizations."
"We're worried about the scaling. We're told it will be okay and there won't be issues, however, I'm not 100% convinced."
"It should be a little bit easier to implement. It is user-friendly, but there is always scope for improvement."
"It should have a better user interface. Its flexibility should also be improved. It is not about simplifying; it is more about flexibility. Each company has its own requirements, and ForgeRock can provide more flexibility in terms of the use of existing modules to implement features for the customers."
"Automatic Deployment needs improvement. it could be made easier."
"I think that the connection with like Microsoft Word, especially for Office 365, is a weak point that could be improved."
"The timing of the token validity, if it could be extended, would be great. I'm not sure if there is even an option to configure these types of settings."

ForgeRock Benefits and Key Features
Reviews from Real Users
ForgeRock stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Two major ones are its robust identity and access tools and its being easy to manage and scale with one central dashboard.
PeerSpot users note the effectiveness of these features. A technology solutions leader at an outsourcing company writes, “We need it for multiple clients, multiple implementations. Not all of them are necessarily a multi-tenant solution. We need a very versatile solution that can do a lot of work, but from a single instance that we can centralize authentications and we don't duplicate the efforts and that's where ForgeRock seems to do better.”
Mohamed B., a cyber security consultant at a tech company, writes, "Their access management solution, OpenAM, is most valuable because it meets the needs of a lot of users. ForgeRock secured our system so that it is accessed only by authorized people, and it implemented the SSO."
