The Analysts of KuppingerCole acknowledge iWelcome’s position as the Innovation Leader and Product Leader in the rapidly growing market of Consumer IAM (CIAM). This accolade follows the Gartner ‘Excellent’ rating for its CIAM offering last month.
Frictionless and privacy protected personal engagements at scale form the basis of our CIAM vision. This has led KuppingerCole to name iWelcome as the company that is setting the industry scene with its robust cloud identity platform that enables large enterprises to effectively target and securely service millions of consumers. This supports iWelcome’s customers in their digital transformation journeys.
The only IDaaS built for GDPR
We have built the first GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) compliant IDaaS for managing consumer identities. Multi-layer encryption to protect all privacy related identity information, a continuous consent mechanism, the ‘right to be forgotten’ and the Consumer’s right to fully access, view, alter and export his/her information are all standard parts of our service. The marketing departments of iWelcome clients can therefore rely on a fully compliant identity service.
One platform for CIAM and Workforce IAM
iWelcome received industry recognition as Innovation Leader in KuppingerCole’s Leadership Compass for Cloud User and Access Management in 2014 for its support of complex enterprise Workforce, eGovernment and Consumer use cases.
Further development of consumer identity capabilities include a flexible data model for identity profile information, validation mechanisms for attributes, extensive export and reporting for Know Your Customer analysis, a micro-services architecture and a host of infrastructural components to bring agility, scalability and security to the next level. These features span both workforce and consumer identity scenarios all facilitated by a unified cloud platform.
