Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"Even though we have very small business interests with them today, they see that we plan on growing drastically over the next two years. Therefore, we have excellent support and we are now at a point where we are not calling tech support. We pick up a phone and call the Account Manager and they'll get everything resolved for us. We don't have to queue along with everybody else and go through a long process.""We create and define the permissions and configurations for the users.""The solution integrates well and it is important for them to keep up with the current trends in the market quickly enough, and they have been doing a good job at it.""Their access management solution, OpenAM, is most valuable because it meets the needs of a lot of users.""The solution is very scalable. We have a lot of users that have been increasing over the years that we have been using it. We have approximately 20,000 users.""ForgeRock has CIAM, which other products didn't have, and they have DevOps ready.""I like the intelligent authentication feature."

"It's very easy to implement everything.""Some of the valuable features of the solution are the easy integration with processes, such as Single Sign-On. Overall WSO2 is straightforward and does not need customization."

Cons
"It should have a better user interface. Its flexibility should also be improved. It is not about simplifying; it is more about flexibility. Each company has its own requirements, and ForgeRock can provide more flexibility in terms of the use of existing modules to implement features for the customers.""Automatic Deployment needs improvement. it could be made easier.""We're worried about the scaling. We're told it will be okay and there won't be issues, however, I'm not 100% convinced.""The solution requires more simplified customization. However, part of the problem is my clients determining their own preferences. Technology can help and do many things, but you have to define your own policies to ensure that the solution or service works within those parameters. Helping customers understand their business and different processes is another issue not relating to the functionality of this solution.""I find that it's quite expensive for just an open-source system. Support is quite expensive.""It should be a little bit easier to implement. It is user-friendly, but there is always scope for improvement.""In an upcoming release, the solution could improve by limiting the need to do customizations."

More ForgeRock Cons »

"This solution does not have BPM workflows already integrated, we had to integrate the BPM module externally. They do not provide full-featured auditing and certification modules out of the box.""The solution could improve its development from a user perspective."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Its price is comparable to other products in the market.""The pricing of the solution is fair but I do not have the full details.""We have multiple clients we are looking at right now. We are at a very small number, however, the idea and the goal is to grow. We are looking at about $100,000 and $50,000 a minimum a month cost. That'd be minimum maybe in a couple of years.""Its licensing is on a yearly basis, but it also depends on the contract that you have with the vendor. They have multiple types of contracts. There are additional costs to the standard licensing fees. If you need some of the features, you have to pay more.""The license is purchased annually per user. However, you can negotiate if you are signing for a longer period of time. When comparing this solution to others on the market it is priced fair, it is not at the top of the price range or at the bottom end.""It's a bit pricey and could be more competitive."
