SSH.COM and ForgeRock partner for identity-driven privileged access for the cloud era

"We are excited to work with ForgeRock to bring PrivX to an ever-widening audience." SSH.COM and ForgeRock® today announced a partnership designed to help organizations around the world to provide unified identity-driven, automated, role-based access controls for administrators, developers, DevOps teams, and third-party personnel.

ForgeRock’s Identity Platform transforms the way organizations approach identity and access management to help them deliver trusted digital relationships that improve the personalized customer experience and drive greater value. Working in concert, SSH.COM and ForgeRock bring the same unified SSO experience and seamless security to users who need privileged access (including all-powerful root privileges): admins, developers, and DevOps teams. Furthermore, the combined solution supports both employees and third-party personnel and lets them have the same experience across on-premise hosts and multiple cloud environments, including AWS, Azure, GCP, and others.

Lean Privileged Access Management 

PrivX®, SSH.COM’s patented lean Privileged Access Management solution for cloud and on-premise extends ForgeRock IAM to enable a new, more secure approach to the management of privileged access to business systems. Privileged users gain secure, role-based, on-demand access to critical development and production resources, helping improve security and reduce administration.

Tightly connected with the ForgeRock Identity Platform, PrivX is a ‘credentialess on-demand solution that solves one of the biggest concerns for CIOs and CISOs today: how to manage an endless number of privileged access credentials, usually created ad hoc, that waste resources and expand the threat surface.

“We are excited to work with ForgeRock to bring PrivX to an ever-widening audience. Working together, we empower a whole new audience to tap into the ForgeRock experience: the developers and admins who create and manage the digital customer experiences that drive the digital transformation.”
Sami Ahvenniemi, Chief Customer Officer at SSH.COM.
