Why Is It Time for Government to Modernize IAM?

With the rise of security risks, online services, citizen and workforce user demands, and mandated initiatives, modernizing digital identity to provide exceptional digital experiences is an urgent priority for governments and agencies. 

Unfortunately, most government agencies’ identity and access management (IAM) solutions result in limited capabilities, siloed data, fragmented security, expensive maintenance, and less-than-ideal user experiences. 

The complexities of today’s government agencies require IAM technology that can seamlessly interoperate across ecosystems and provide secure access to citizens, workforce, and things at any touchpoint. What’s needed is a comprehensive and flexible identity platform that can both work within current system environments and enable easy integration and migration from legacy systems while supporting any use case at scale. With ForgeRock, government organizations can do just that.

ForgeRock helps people safely and simply access the connected world by enabling exceptional digital experiences with no compromise on security.

Podcast: FICAM Drives an Imperative for Modernized IAM
