TOKYO, Japan (PRWEB) June 14, 2010
ForgeRock, an open source software company started by former Sun Microsystems executives in February 2010, and Open Source Solution Technology (OSSTech, CEO: Koji Odagiri) have reached an agreement on joint development of OpenAM Identity Management software. ForgeRock OpenAM (based on OpenSSO) is an open source access management, entitlements and federation server platform that was initially created by Sun Microsystems.

OSSTech will submit all newly created OpenSSO improvements/contributions to the ForgeRock maintained OpenAM project. Moving forward, all future contributions and collective work will be focused on one single project, OpenAM.
"Developments previously done independently will be combined and as a result more quality improvements and feature enhancements are expected. It will also benefit the open source community," said Lasse Andresen, CEO, ForgeRock.
ForgeRock and OSSTech will work jointly to provide OpenAM support services and training globally to customers requiring integrated authentication authorization systems for today's cloud environment. The first steps will be that both companies will provide co-ordinated local-language product support to mutual customers that have offices and branches in Japan and worldwide. Global companies can take advantage of this service when adopting OpenAM.
ForgeRock AS, based in Norway with subsidiaries in the US and the UK, is committed to continuity of innovation and service for the existing and new open source interaction, identity, and integration software found within the I3platform. ForgeRock will provide customers with enterprise-class subscriptions for the platform as well as training and access to an extensive partner community.
