Ubisecure launches ‘Identity-as-a-Service’ solution

The Finnish-headquartered company says its solution will make it easy for service users to sign in only once across multiple applications and resources, providing a greatly enhance user experience and increased security

European Digital Identity leader Ubisecure has announced a new ‘Ubisecure Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS)’ solution – a move it claims offers users the core functionality they need to build Single Sign-On (SSO) into their customer or citizen-facing applications quickly cost effectively.

Noting that organisations are increasingly choosing cloud-based Identity Management solutions instead of building in-house, and that, according to Gartner, as many as 80% of core SSO projects will be SaaS instead of developed in-house in the next few years, the Finnish-headquartered company says its solution will make it easy for service users to sign in only once across multiple applications and resources, providing a greatly enhance user experience and increased security.

“Identity management is complex, and the risks of identity data breaches are higher than ever,” claims the firm.

Ubisecure CEO Simon Wood: “This new Identity-as-a-Service 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”

“Ubisecure IDaaS lets you focus on what you do best, running your business and not spending cycles integrating standards and reinventing identity management.

“And being API-first, IDaaS empowers your developers to benefit from standards-based identity management functionality without the cost or risk of building in-house.”

Ubisecure’s CEO, Simon Wood, also told Think Digital Partners that, “With the current rate of digital transformation advancing at a rapid pace, adoption of cloud-based identity services is beginning to reach maturity. 

“With that in mind, we must ensure our products and services meet today’s digital identity requirements and cater to ever-evolving customer needs. This new Identity-as-a-Service 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.”
 
He added, “Ubisecure has always deployed solutions to the cloud, but our new IDaaS approach offers a simplified, standardised deployment that allows developers to implement features like SSO, much faster, much easier and, being SaaS, at an OpEx subscription level, not a CapEx investment one.”
