ForgeRock was founded in 2010 on a mere $40,000 in seed capital and the vision of five friends.
The frontman of the open identity stack, ForgeRock — backed by Accel Partners — powers the world's largest companies and government organizations with the most disruptive identity solutions. Our goal is simple: to deliver the best open source identity stack for securing anything, anywhere, on any device.
We are dedicated to open source because it drives innovation and fuels the information economy.
We believe a great band can jam wherever they are with a healthy work-life balance empowered by full family support.
ForgeRock is the result of an overdose of can-do attitude.
Forge. As a noun, a forge is used by craftsmen to create strong, durable metal. As a verb, it means to build something with great effort, whether it be metal or a relationship built on trust. It's also the name of the pub in London where we drank Steve Ferris into a partnership.
Rock. Two of our passions: music and Kjerag, a Norwegian mountain near the company's founding headquarters where a boulder sits wedged between two rocks thousands of feet in the sky above water. This boulder inspired the ForgeRock logo and is a metaphor for the founding of the company: BASE jumpers from all over the world come here to take a chance and dive off the high cliffs.
