ForgeRock has expanded its partnership with Google Cloud in a bid to extend the company's reach and customer service.

More specifically, the company has announced that its Identity Cloud platform is available for purchase on the Google Cloud Marketplace.

ForgeRock's Identity Cloud is a comprehensive identity platform. Being available on the Google Cloud Marketplace means customers will benefit from deeper product integration, unified billing and an expanded relationship to better serve their needs globally, the company states.

Furthermore, it enables joint customers to integrate identity solutions into their existing infrastructure while reallocating a portion of their committed investment with Google Cloud, the company states.

According to a recent study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of ForgeRock and Google Cloud, more than 50% of enterprises plan to adopt or expand their use of hybrid cloud and multi-cloud within the next two years.

Essentially, today it is crucial to have simple and safe access to the connected world.

Speaking of safe, the addition of ForgeRock to the Google Cloud Marketplace gives Google Cloud customers the ability to leverage a single platform across their hybrid IT environment for all of their identity needs, extending cloud security and protecting cloud and on premises applications quickly and easily, the company states.

In addition to elevating user experiences without compromising security for consumer and workforce identities, Identity Cloud extends these capabilities to secure APIs, services, devices, and things.

ForgeRock Global Business and Corporate Development SVP Been Goodman says, “ForgeRock Identity Cloud is built on Google Cloud so we have real-world insight into the value of its platform and infrastructure for creating successful digital businesses.

"Like us, our customers need the very best cloud resources for their applications and infrastructure, and the addition of ForgeRock Identity Cloud to the Google Cloud Marketplace gives customers the ability to run, manage, and unify digital identities across cloud and on-premises environments."

Google Cloud Marketplace global head Amy Bray says, “We are excited that ForgeRock is now available on Google Cloud Marketplace.

"Google Cloud makes it very easy for companies to deploy ForgeRock Identity Cloud on a global scale, helping them deliver exceptional digital experiences for employees and customers.

ForgeRock delivers modern and comprehensive identity and access management solutions for consumers, employees and things to simply and safely access the connected world.

Using ForgeRock, more than a thousand global customer organisations orchestrate, manage, and secure the complete lifecycle of identities from dynamic access controls, governance, APIs, and storing authoritative data consumable in any cloud or hybrid environment.
