New software streamlines customer access management

As more customers use apps and online portals, businesses need to ensure that these day-to-day interactions that are both inviting and secure.

However, developers often lack the expertise to incorporate CIAM (Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM) into their applications. WSO2 is addressing this challenge with today's introduction of its next-generation identity as a service (IDaaS) solution, Asgardeo.

It allows developers without security expertise to easily embed advanced CIAM features into their apps. There are built-in CIAM best practices and workflows via a range of templates and other no code/low code options. It also lets developers integrate security code while working within familiar software development environments.

"Organizations are accelerating their digital initiatives, but they often lose traction when applications fail to meet the company's security policies. With Asgardeo, enterprises can now encode their security policies and standards to reduce development time and transform security reviews into simple check-the-box exercises," says Eric Newcomer, WSO2 CTO. "At the same time, using Asgardeo, it's easier than ever for development teams to foster customer loyalty by giving them a great enrollment experience and building these users confidence in the protection of their personal information."

For the customer this means a simplified experience, letting them use the same log-in credentials no matter what part of the system they are connected to. For the business it protects sensitive APIs and integrations in the cloud and offers streamlined security reviews and approvals by codifying policies and standards, freeing developers to concentrate on building out their core applications. It also focuses team resources on delivering superior customer experiences instead of managing the underlying infrastructure.

An early adopter release of Asgardeo is available from today. There's a free entry-level edition which contains robust capabilities including single sign-on (SSO), multi-factor authentication (MFA), social login support, adaptive authentication, a user self-care portal, and more. Additional options are also available via paid subscription.
