GEICO Prepares To Take IAM To New Levels

Peter Cummings | ForgeRock | July 19, 2013

GEICO the third-largest private passenger auto insurer, serving more that 12 million private passenger customers, have selected the Open Identity Stack from ForgeRock to help them take IAM to the next level. The ForgeRock Open Identity Stack is a 100 percent open source identity stack to secure applications and services across clouds, SaaS, mobile, and enterprise systems. GEICO intends to use the stack to support the building of an online customer portal while providing a secure and modern experience for their customers.

So what is the important thing to notice in this? Well firstly the message that we kept repeating the the EIC this year was about having to consider the extended enterprise when planning IAM. This is clear that when the number of users we need to support starts growing exponentially, as we no longer can take in to account our employees and business partners. We have an even bigger community we need to serve, namely the end-users and we need to keep them happy.
