In the past, the industry of Identity Management was focused on managing the identities of employees. Nowadays, Identity & Access Management involves consumers too. As many organizations are discovering IAM for consumers, they find out that this new space is providing them with strategic opportunities. Onegini has proven this by implementing Consumer Identity Management (CIM) for large global insurance companies with astonishing results such as:
The big difference between IAM for employees and consumers is the number of users. Your company may have thousands of employees and millions of consumers. Consumers want to decide on their own how they do business with you. Some key characteristics:
As your company’s online strategy grows, so does the functionality around Consumer Identity Management. In fact, you find yourself building a foundation that requires decades of human labor. The good news is that it doesn’t need to be like this. Onegini delivers a complete solution for securing web and mobile for consumers out of the box.Onegini allows you to:
CIM and MSP extend your current infrastructure landscape. With one click deployment through Docker technology you can deploy the complete stack.
By pressing a button you can scale up and multiply components. The good thing is you can install the components in your landscape and start building portals and mobile applications using the Onegini components. Users can easily migrate from “old identity stores” towards CIM allowing your company to have one Consumer Identity Store. The API’s and SDK’s allow developers to create business functionality for web and mobile without having to worry about security, as the Onegini infrastructure takes care of this.
For example, a portal can trigger CIM by requiring a second factor authentication. CIM and MSP will take complete care of this.
Another example, the app wants to get consumer data from the backend, MSP will:
1. Ensure the user has the rights (token) to do so.
2. Transport the data from the backend in a secure way, using the out of the box feature: Payload encryption.
3. Will provide it to the app.
