Sponsored by Businesswire

RF IDeas, Inc. and ForgeRock® have announced the availability of seamless authentication solutions, consolidating all secure services into a single user profile with no passwords required.

RF IDeas is a leading innovator and manufacturer of employee credential readers for logical access applications such as computer and network access, identification, secure pull print, and time and attendance. ForgeRock’s mission is to transform the way organizations approach identity and access management so they can deliver trusted digital relationships that improve the personalized customer experience and drive greater value.

The new partnership benefits users of the ForgeRock Identity Platform by making an authentication node for RF IDeas readers available in the ForgeRock marketplace. “Challenges with data and application security in today’s enterprise have driven the need for secure yet user-friendly multi-factor authentication and leveraging an employee’s badge has always been a desirable option for such implementation. An integration with ForgeRock, a leading IAM solution provider, brings seamless, yet secure authentication to users across industries and applications”, said Tod Besse, Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing, RF IDeas, Inc.

With one employee badge, users now have tap-and-go access to all the secure network resources they need throughout the workday. The RF IDeas and ForgeRock solution eliminates the need for passwords that are cumbersome to enter, easily forgotten and susceptible to theft. ForgeRock’s Authentication Trees provide the ability to create a variety of authentication scenarios, using the employee badge either as one factor in multi-factor authentication or as a standalone authentication credential.

“We are very excited that the integration with RF IDeas readers is now available,” said Ben Goodman, Senior Vice President for Global Business and Corporate Development at ForgeRock. “RF IDeas is a recognized leader in employee badge authentication solutions; their technology paired with our Intelligent Authentication capability will enable unprecedented capability to authenticate users across digital and physical channels.”
