Ubisecure launches IDaaS solution for identity management applications
Ubisecure, a Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM) software provider and cloud identity services enabler, has released a B2B/B2C Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) solution for developers to quickly add its digital identity management capabilities to cloud-based applications, the company announced.
The new IDaaS is API-based, allowing companies to deal with sophisticated challenges in identity management, the company says, and deliver streamlined and secure digital identity functionality in web, mobile and single page applications. Ubisecure further states its new cloud-based IDaaS solution is pertinent to B2C/B2B Single Sign-On (SSO) use cases, which require fast integration and standardized feature sets.
“With the current rate of digital transformation advancing at a rapid pace, adoption of cloud services is beginning to reach maturity,” said Simon Wood, CEO of Ubisecure. “With that in mind, we must ensure our products and services meet today’s digital identity requirements and cater to ever-evolving customer needs.”
“The new IDaaS solution has been created as a response to demand from developers for simplified use cases and also to an ever-upwards trend of SaaS adoption,” Wood continued. “Ubisecure has always deployed solutions to the cloud, but this approach offers a simplified, standardized deployment that allows developers to implement features like SSO, much faster and easier.”
“Ubisecure has demonstrated its value specifically in scenarios with complex B2B2C relationships, where its strength in delegating access is a differentiator to other providers in the market,” said Martin Kuppinger, founder and principal analyst at KuppingerCole.
Ubisecure IDaaS offers Identity Provider support for authentication, such as BankID, as well as integration of unlimited social Identity Providers and with enterprise or custom applications, log retention, hosting options, and onboarding via in-house customer success team and world-class SLAs, all as standard features. Optional add-ons are also available, including such as advanced delegation capability and multi-factor authentication (MFA).
Ubisecure is a Europe-based company with offices in the UK, Finland, Sweden, and Germany. In 2018, the company had launched a new version of its Identity Platform, which included a new Authentication Adapter to extend support for “bring your own identity” workflows.
