ForgeRock releases Autonomous Access solution powered by AI

By Catherine Knowles
Fri 13 May 2022

ForgeRock has officially introduced ForgeRock Autonomous Access, a new solution that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to prevent identity-based cyber attacks and fraud.

The new solution monitors login requests in real time to block malicious attempts, adds authentication steps for anomalous behaviours, and streamlines access for known users, the company states.

Organisations worldwide have gone through a rapid digital transformation over the past two years which has increased their risk of cyber attack, ForgeRock states. In fact, 82% of organisations believe that they have experienced at least one data breach as a result of their transformation.

ForgeRock is driven by the belief that AI-driven solutions have the ability to protect organisations and their customers from costly security breaches. The company first introduced AI into its platform in 2019 to automate the provisioning of identities to ensure that users had the right level of access within an organisation.

With the availability of ForgeRock Autonomous Access, the company is now building the identity platform for coming years by infusing artificial intelligence into the entire identity lifecycle.

The introduction of the AI-driven solution is a significant step forward in helping organisations prevent cyber attacks and fraud such as inappropriate access and account takeover. According to the company, the new solution is designed to empower teams to detect and prevent attacks faster and allows them to refine customer access to make online experiences for legitimate users feel more effortless.

ForgeRock chief product officer Peter Barker says, “We continue to invest in AI to make the authentication process safer and smoother for users. What makes our approach distinct is the unique combination of AI, machine learning, and advanced pattern recognition.

"This triple-threat gives enterprises the ability to strengthen their identity perimeter, thwart bad actors, and even catch threats we didn't know to look for, all with the click of a button.”

ForgeRock Autonomous Access is designed to eliminate costly deployment and integration of disparate point solutions. It also enables IT admins to create any number of personalised user access journeys with a simple drag-and-drop, no-code interface. This flexibility makes it possible for IT admins to design tailored experiences for every login attempt based on the level of risk.

For instance, a known user with a low risk score can move through with options such as passwordless authentication, while a known user exhibiting anomalous behaviour, such as an unusual location or device, can be given added authentication steps. Finally, login attempts that exhibit high risk scores can be blocked or sent on different journeys for further analysis and remediation.

KuppingerCole founder and principal analyst Martin Kuppinger says, "ForgeRock's continued investment in AI across its platform helps customers with what they need the ability to make intelligent decisions quickly and with confidence.

"Anti-fraud capabilities are important and need to complement existing services that customers use. Autonomous Access is a complementary solution that comes fully integrated with ForgeRocks user journey orchestration."
