WSO2 Demos Open Source IAM Solution Featured in New KuppingerCole Report
The WSO2 booth at EIC 2019 will have identity experts available to demonstrate how WSO2 Identity Server provides a comprehensive, open source IAM solution for managing customer, partner, and employee identities. The software is optimized for identity federation and single source sign-on (SSO) with comprehensive support for adaptive and strong authentication. It helps identity administrators to federate identities, secure access to web and mobile applications and endpoints, and bridge versatile identity protocols across on-premises and cloud environments.

WSO2’s IAM solution is highlighted in the recently published KuppingerCole Executive View report on WSO2 Identity Server, which observes that “Identity Management solutions need to address the growing number of identities associated with applications and endpoints, as well as the ability to integrate with the diversity of application and service APIs.”

In evaluating WSO2 Identity Server, the KuppingerCole report states that, “Using an open source model allows organizations to innovate by extending the open source code base and help avoid vendor lock-in, although it does require an annual subscription to get the full support an enterprise will need.” The report further notes that WSO2 Identity Server “takes some innovative approaches to solve identity challenges in the market today making it a product worth being evaluated.” The full report can be downloaded here: About KuppingerCole Analysts AG
