GEICO selected the Open Identity Stack products from ForgeRock Inc., an open platform provider of identity and access management (IAM) products, as the foundation of its online customer portal. ForgeRock said the private passenger auto insurer is transforming its business to meet customer demands by offering state-of-the-art, next-generation Web services.

GEICO is looking to quickly integrate the ForgeRock Open Identity Stack, which includes OpenAM, OpenDJ and OpenIDM, with its architecture and Web services in an effort to meet the needs of today’s modern Web strategy, including mobility, according to ForgeRock.

“Initially, we considered traditional, closed-source enterprise IAM vendors to help us drive our vision forward, but it quickly became evident that they would not be able to offer a solution that would be able to integrate or scale as quickly as we needed,” said Greg Kalinsky, SVP and CIO, GEICO. “We selected ForgeRock as our IAM technology partner because of their success in delivering the Open Identity Stack in an easy-to-deploy, highly scalable approach to enterprise, cloud and mobile environments. To us, ForgeRock understood what it meant to create a modern, best-in-class Web experience for our large and exceedingly diverse customer base.”

The ForgeRock Open Identity Stack is a unified, 100-percent open-source identity stack to secure applications and services across private, hybrid and public clouds, as well as SaaS, mobile and enterprise systems, the company said. ForgeRock’s architecture is expected to provide the power, economics and agility required for GEICO to establish secure access controls for mission-critical applications at scale across any population, whether they’re consumers or employees, as they deploy their online customer portal.

“With GEICO choosing ForgeRock, they further validate the fact that IAM is not just a tool for security, but also for business agility,” said Mike Ellis, CEO, ForgeRock. “Our unique approach to identity and access management provides GEICO with the flexibility and scalability necessary to tightly control their systems as they globally expand their reach to consumers and agents through their new online customer portal.”
