EAST BRUNSWICK, N.J., April 4, 2023 – 1Kosmos, the only company that unifies identity proofing and passwordless authentication, today announced the integration of 1Kosmos BlockID with ForgeRock Access Manager which enables customers to modernize the onboarding experience for users and implement identity-based passwordless authentication on all ForgeRock protected applications with the click of a mouse.

Available on the ForgeRock MarketPlace, BlockID Passwordless Authentication enables developers, via a simple drop down menu, to add biometric and passwordless authentication to any application protected by ForgeRock Access Manager. 

“For customers using single sign-on platforms like ForgeRock, modernizing user journeys with advanced biometrics for onboarding and passwordless authentication used to require significant application development,” said Javed Shah, senior vice president of product management for 1Kosmos. “This integration enables organizations to add identity verification and passwordless to ForgeRock protected applications with just a few simple mouse clicks.”
