By Nathanael Coffing, CSO

We’re excited to announce that for the third consecutive year, leading analyst firm KuppingerCole has selected Cloudentity as a “Product and Innovation Leader” in its annual Access Management Leadership Compass

The Leadership Compass highlights the leaders in innovation, product features and market reach for Access Management for on-premise, cloud, and hybrid platforms. In the report, Cloudentity is recognized for providing a modern approach to API-driven Access Management. 

Cloudentity’s technology delivers dynamic policy automation for Zero Trust between applications, users, services and data to facilitate secure and confidential data exchange for high-value transactions. We use a microservice delivery model and infrastructure agnostic approach, which allows enterprises to seamlessly integrate API Governance into their existing hybrid and multicloud infrastructure. 

By enabling customers to Bring Your Own Identity Provider (BYOIDP), Cloudentity allows organizations to modernize existing identity investments, while seamlessly integrating Dynamic Authorization into their current identity and application ecosystem. Our Dynamic Authorization model strengthens cybersecurity using “who, what, where, when, why” contextual models to authorize users. This allows enterprises to securely authenticate employees and customers while providing a simple and frictionless experience on the front end.

With Cloudentity, enterprises can create a uniform access policy enforcement to significantly reduce the overall complexity of legacy and modern applications that rely on APIs to exchange sensitive data across hybrid IT environments. Combining API security tools with its mature Identity Access Management (IAM), Cloudentity enables enterprises to meet even the most complex and sophisticated security requirements. 

Key benefits of Cloudentity’s API-driven Access Management solutions include: 

  1. Extends existing infrastructure using open standards to manage identities for people, workloads, applications, APIs and IoT devices.
  2. Enables centralized policy management that provides continuous and contextual transactional authorization. 
  3. Significantly reduces the overall complexity of legacy and modern applications across hybrid IT & cloud environments.

This industry recognition from the KuppingerCole Leadership Compass underscores our team’s passion for creating solutions that accelerate developer innovation and modernize applications. Our team of technologists and identity practitioners have brought together decades of collective experience, along with innovative development practices, to solve problems for enterprises at the API level.
