Identity, security & cloud analyst KuppingerCole recognised iWelcome as a Leader in its latest Leadership Compass IDaaS ‘Identity as a Service: Single Sign-On to the Cloud’ (IDaaS SSO). iWelcome was positioned as a leader in innovation and in product features, with a ‘strong positive’ endorsement for functionality and security. This endorsement came 1 month after iWelcome was again designated Product & innovation leader in the Leadership Compass 'Consumer Identity and Access Management Platforms'.
According to the report, iWelcome has a good offering for IDaaS Single Sign-On and IDaaS Business-to-Employee, with a special mention of the support of integration of external users. “In that area, they are leading-edge due to the variety of CIAM features offered, including excellent support for the upcoming EU GDPR requirements.”
Overall KuppingerCole states the following strengths of iWelcome in the analysis:
- Strong integration back to existing on-premise IAM services
- Tight integration with Windows authentication
- Run from EU datacenters
- Well thought-out approach for covering security and privacy concerns particularly of EU customers
