We generalize the phenomenon of forced stochastic synchronization into the quantum domain within the framework of a paradigmatic spin-boson model (tunneling charge, or flipping spin 1/2 coupled to an environment) which is driven by an external periodic rectangular field. The overdamped regime of dissipative quantum tunneling is studied. Thermal noise assisted synchronization of a very high quality is shown to occur in a broad range of temperatures, driving strengths and frequencies, if the external driving frequency exceeds the zero-temperature limit of dissipative tunneling rate, the dissipation strength exceeds a critical value, and the driving is sufficiently strong. A simple criterion for such stochastic synchronization is established. Both the similarities and the profound differences with the akin phenomenon of quantum stochastic resonance are outlined.
