CrossGEN establishes a consulting partnership with ForgeRock
October 27, 2020 — CrossGeneration (“CrossGEN”) Security LLCˇ has established a consulting partnership with Digital Identity leader ForgeRock®. In addition to deep Data Protection and Data Privacy expertise with Oracle database clients, our heritage reflects two decades of consulting experience in Oracle and IBM Identity and Access Management products. We will assist these respective client bases as they modernize, re-platform or pursue a coexistence strategy with ForgeRock — while extending the life of their existing implementations during this transition. CrossGEN’s Digital Identity offerings span assessment, strategy, architecture, design, and deployment services.
Ray Neucom, an Architect with 20 years of experience in IAM, will lead the Digital Identity Practice.
“Modern businesses are looking for their IAM platforms to provide an increasingly diverse set of Digital Identity capabilities, while still supporting their investment in heritage architecture and applications. A key driver in the choice of ForgeRock as our strategic IAM partner was their comprehensive range of capabilities, including flexible support for emerging use cases in IOT identity, consumer identity, micro-services based architectures, and privacy regulations, while still supporting reverse proxy and plugin solutions for heritage applications. ForgeRock continues to invest in their platform, with recent releases of intelligent governance and a platform-as-a-service offering that leverages the same software base as their on-premise offerings. We believe ForgeRock will provide our clients with a solid foundation for supporting the growing demands of Digital Identity over the coming decade.”
Ray Neucom, Digital Identity Practice Leader
“I am thrilled to join forces with former colleagues with whom my team collaborated on many successful IAM deployments over the past decade. ForgeRock checks all the boxes. Leadership that strikes the right balance between vision and execution, a compelling new product portfolio, and a great team — at the right time in the market. A tremendous value proposition, whether a midmarket firm or a global enterprise.”
