“Over the past couple of years, we have seen exponential growth in client adoption of microservice-based applications, zero-trust architectures and CIAM. These trends are forcing identity professionals to view IAM very differently than in the past and devise radical new strategies to serving an increasingly complex client base.”— Toby Emden, Managing Director at Edgile
CIAM.next is designed for zero-trust security by integrating Identity Access Management with consumer-focused progressive consent enforcement for legacy and hybrid cloud applications
SEATTLE, November 05, 2019 – Cloudentity’s new CIAM.next platform provides a generational shift in the consumer identity and access management market. Featuring a privacy-first platform built specifically for enterprises to enable strong data security while reducing the time IT development staff spend on managing security systems.
Intelligent and continuous authentication and authorization allows organizations to build secure Hybrid-Cloud applications leveraging Open Standards and microservices that enforce security policies on a transactional basis. The cloud-native CIAM.next platform helps customers protect billions of transactions with a focus on authorization as the security control plane.
“Privacy and data security technologies have not kept pace with the growing demands of consumers to control their own data,” said Cloudentity CEO Jasen Meece. “Cloudentity is solving the authorization problem in hybrid cloud environments with progressive consent tied to consumer choice.”
CIAM.next combines secure identity interactions between users, services and things with Cloudentity’s policy enforcement tools at the API level. With centralized policy management and distributed security enforcement, the platform meets the hyper-scale and performance capabilities of today’s global enterprises.
Features of the CIAM.next platform include:
- Customizable User Journey: Cloudentity provides the first dynamic user journey with fully Configurable UI and CIAM.next’s microservice architecture, building registration and privacy data flows with a drag and drop process to easily enhance the user experience.
- “Bring your Own IDP” Identity management: The platform allows a user to combine identities from multiple upstream providers, such as legacy IDPs or modern social logins, generating a uniform source of truth to inform security policies.
- Multi Organizations/Delegated Admin: Modern organizations require the ability to quickly roll out new business processes via B2C, B2B2C and B2B2P relationships. next allows segmentation of administrative responsibility, security policies, privacy management and risk governance, all to mitigate the risk of data overexposure.
- Passwordless Login and MFA: next supports a range of MFA tools out of the box, including two types of passwordless and a “bring your own MFA” model, which are tightly integrated with Cloudentity’s API security. This simultaneously allows for more security and convenience for the consumer.
- Enhanced Identity and Enforcement: The platform supports industry standards such SAML, OAuth and OIDC and when coupled with Cloudentity’s API security tools, it provides out-of-the box support for granular security policies that protect application entitlements and individual customer.
- 360° Audit: Combining CIAM data with policy enforcement data allows for end-to-end transaction logging, providing a clearer view to help refine security before a breach occurs and provide more visibility and a tamper-proof audit trail when evaluating a breach.
- Developer Tools and Integration: With a flexible developer portal, service identity support, open APIs and microservices, developers no longer have to compromise between security and convenience.
