Open Source Identity & Access Management for Agile businesses

WSO2 Identity Server, a core component of the open source integration agile platform, facilitates single sign on between applications and federates identities between multiple heterogeneous systems. It is optimized for securing APIs, microservices, and CIAM projects. Its enterprise-grade pedigree offers advanced capabilities including identity federation, SSO, ID bridging, strong & adaptive authentication, and regulation compliance.

Unlike competitors, it is unique due to its inherent extensibility to meet use ‘corner cases’. And can be deployed locally, as a hosted service by WSO2, or in a distributed microservices environment.

The Identity Server also comes with a rich set of connectors, [enabling/empowering it to be a part of a larger ecosystem].  And the open source nature of WSO2 IS further ensures customers benefit from community innovation, and extensibility while helping avoid vendor lock-in.
