WSO2 Unveils Asgardeo Next-Gen IDaaS
As more consumers demand great digital experiences, enterprises must compete for customer loyalty via online interactions that are both inviting and secure. Customer identity and access management (CIAM) is a critical part of the experience, yet application developers often lack the expertise to incorporate CIAM into their client-facing applications. WSO2 addresses this challenge with the introduction of its next-generation identity as a service (IDaaS) solution, Asgardeo.
“Organisations 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,” said 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.”
The early adopter release of Asgardeo, available now, sets a new industry standard for enabling developers without security expertise to easily embed advanced CIAM features into their apps within minutes. The IDaaS provides 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. In addition, the cloud native infrastructure of Asgardeo offers the cost-effective scalability, reliability and agility that organisations creating digital experiences need while providing the privilege access control capabilities so critical to cloud native computing.
Asgardeo builds on the comprehensive CIAM capabilities of WSO2 Identity Server. It inherits rich authentication and access management functionality from WSO2 Identity Server.
The early adopter release of Asgardeo by WSO2 is available now. The free entry-level edition contains robust capabilities including single sign-on (SSO), multi-factor authentication (MFA), social login support, adaptive authentication, a user self-care portal, and much more. Additional subscription options are also available.
WSO2 will demonstrate the capabilities of Asgardeo at GITEX 2021, which is being held October 17 – 21, 2021 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre. Attendees can view the demos in WSO2’s booth, CC2-5 (Concourse 2, Booth 5).
