DATA SECURITY, ENTERPRISE IDENTITY, NETWORK THREAT DETECTION
ForgeRock | March 21, 2023
ForgeRock®, a global digital identity leader, today announced ForgeRock Enterprise Connect Passwordless, a new passwordless authentication solution that eliminates the need for users to interact with passwords inside large organizations. Enterprise Connect Passwordless is the latest addition to ForgeRock’s industry-leading, passwordless authentication portfolio for consumer and workforce use cases.
Developed through ForgeRock’s strategic partnership with Secret Double Octopus, the new solution, integrated into ForgeRock Identity Platform, protects the most commonly used and vulnerable enterprise resources such as servers, workstations, remote desktops, and VPNs. It helps large enterprises proactively defend against costly cyber-attacks and unauthorized access by providing a passwordless experience to legacy applications, systems and services. In turn, organizations can deliver an employee experience that empowers people to access their information without needing to know a password.
“The move to passwordless authentication will fundamentally change every digital experience on the planet, starting with the most common experience of all - logging in,” said Peter Barker, Chief Product Officer, ForgeRock. “With the addition of Enterprise Connect Passwordless, ForgeRock is the only solution to offer a full spectrum of passwordless capabilities that help employees and consumers say goodbye to remembering their passwords.”
Organizations deploying ForgeRock Enterprise Connect Passwordless become a more secure enterprise by removing employee interaction with passwords, and reducing the risk of compromise. Benefits include eliminating employee account lockouts and reducing the volume of IT tickets, which can lower operational costs from help desk interactions, increase workforce productivity and enhance the user experience.
Removing Passwordless Orchestration and Deployment Complexities
ForgeRock Enterprise Connect Passwordless uses next generation identity orchestration capabilities that allow enterprises to easily design and implement passwordless login and access journeys tailored to their unique security and experience needs. With ForgeRock, organizations now have the freedom to move to passwordless at their own pace – without it being an “all or nothing” experience.
“When an organization decides it wants to go passwordless to improve user experiences, that can be a heavy lift, made lighter when accompanied by user journey orchestration technology,” said Jay Bretzmann, Research Vice President, Security Products, IDC. “The ability to rapidly create login experiences tailored to groups of diverse individuals is an imperative for modern enterprises. Orchestration not only provides the tools to do this, but also the ability to ‘fine-tune’ journeys in real-time. What used to take programmers and developers weeks or months can now be accomplished by non-technical IT or identity staff for a fraction of the time and cost.”
Available in Q2, Enterprise Connect Passwordless augments the company’s existing passwordless capabilities, adding to the ongoing work ForgeRock has been doing to eliminate consumer passwords for more than a decade.
A History of Paving the Passwordless Path for Enterprises
The ForgeRock Identity Platform has an extensive history of providing organizations several options to help deploy passwordless authentication for mobile and web applications to reduce fraud and improve the user experience.
ForgeRock can accelerate passwordless deployment with integration for applications, support for identity standards, easy to use workflows to enable workforce and CIAM passwordless user journeys, and web-based passwordless authentication through a browser using passkeys in their mobile devices. ForgeRock already supports passwordless authentication capabilities through FIDO2 WebAuthn standards and passkeys within the ForgeRock Identity Cloud, low-code, no-code access orchestration with ForgeRock Intelligent Access and AI-driven threat protection within ForgeRock Autonomous Access. ForgeRock also has alliances with partners that have developed curated FIDO solutions for many different types of applications.

Noname Security, the leading provider of complete API security solutions, today announced major enhancements to its market-leading API security platform to help organisations protect their API ecosystem, secure their applications, and increase cyber resilience. With the fastest, most flexible, and most comprehensive solution on the market, Noname Security continues to define API security.
Noname Enables Secure Growth with API Security Innovation
Today, APIs drive business, delivering value to customers, clients, patients, users, shareholders, and more. However, securing APIs – and all of the critical assets they connect – has become more difficult than ever as APIs attacks have increased exponentially. IBM Security X-Force reported that two-thirds of its analysed incidents were due to unsecure APIs.
"APIs are the connective tissue for the digital world, but the explosion in API use has created new and rapidly growing threats to organisations across the globe. We created the Noname API Security Platform to uniquely address the modern API ecosystem, with discovery, insight, protection, and testing capabilities," said Shay Levi, Co-Founder and CTO at Noname Security. "Doing so means not only securing APIs and their use, but also improving the speed at which our customers can expand their business."
The Noname API Security Platform Continues to Define API Security
Noname's latest major release delivers new capabilities across the entire platform – covering discovery, posture management, runtime protection, pre-production testing, and deployment – to help customers:
Discover More & Strengthen Security Posture
Noname Security's Discovery and Posture Management solutions locate and provide insight to every API in an organisation's ecosystem, uncovering vulnerabilities (including the most recent OWASP API Top Ten), protecting sensitive data, and proactively monitoring for changes, including in OpenAPI and other specifications. New capabilities enable customers to:
Gain complete visibility and detailed insights to protect APIs with customisable discovery, flexible tagging, and datatype assignments – including PII, PCI, PHI, and custom categories – for grouping APIs by application, business unit, and more.
Understand APIs in rich context with visualisations of business logic, physical network infrastructure, and API traffic to understand specific interactions and behaviour patterns.
Secure containerised applications with enhanced discovery and detection for Kubernetes (k8s).
Prioritise resources and eliminate blind spots with extensive infrastructure inventories for AWS and Azure, enabling organisations to find unprotected APIs, map the connections between APIs and infrastructure resources, pinpoint resources that could increase the attack surface, and resolve potential issues with full context.
Stop Attacks with Runtime Protection
Noname Security Runtime Protection detects and blocks API attacks with real-time traffic analysis, out-of-band monitoring, inline remediation options, and workflow integrations to increase SOC effectiveness. New capabilities enable customers to:
Identify business-logic-based attacks immediately with updates to the industry's most advanced anomaly detection engine using artificial intelligence & machine learning (AI/ML), including unsupervised online learning.
Reduce Mean-Time-To-Resolution (MTTR) with more context on issue records, including detailed remediation guidance and tools for deeper investigation.
Fully align with security operations center (SOC) processes with automation, custom workflows, and integrations with existing systems such as ITSM, SIEM, SOAR, and more.
Deliver Secure APIs Faster with Active Testing
Noname Security Active Testing is a purpose-built API security testing solution that helps organisations easily add security into the CI/CD pipeline without sacrificing speed. The newest version of Active Testing enables customers to:
Shift left with integrations into the entire software development lifecycle (SDLC). Teams get dynamic API visibility across multiple states and environments throughout the CI/CD process.
Leave no API untested with a unique ability to find and test every API based on an understanding of the application's business logic.
Empower developers with best-in-class usability such as simple setup & automation, in-line test results, and contextual guidance for request failure mitigation.
Continuously Adapt to Changing Environments
Noname Security offers the most flexible and comprehensive set of deployment and integration options available. New capabilities enable customers to:
Rapidly realise value with simplified step-by-step onboarding and in-app guidance.
Meet any deployment requirement with both agentless and agent-based options, including eBPF, and both out-of-band and inline protection options.
Easily manage complex deployments with automatic updates across cloud-hosted, self-hosted, hybrid, and distributed deployments.
Maintain data residency and reduce overhead with remote engines to aggregate traffic into a centralised console, allowing you to keep data within your control and reducing traffic.
Meet strict public-sector compliance requirements with a new hardened virtual appliance.
See the entire attack surface with additional integrations and improvements to Akamai, AWS ECS, Cloudflare, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, Citrix, and other connectors.
Staying Ahead of Attackers
Built by the largest team of API security researchers and developers in the industry, the Noname API Security Platform helps organisations proactively find vulnerabilities, stop attacks, reduce the risk of costly incidents, and ensure business continuity.
"Improving security posture and shifting from reactive to proactive does more than reduce risk. It allows the entire enterprise to change its position in the market from follower to leader," said Oz Golan, CEO and Co-Founder of Noname Security.
