What is Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM)?

We’re glad you asked. Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM) authenticates, stores, and manages customer identities within an organization’s external-facing system. In action, CIAM looks like: self-registration, social login, profile generation, profile management, credential management, reporting and analytics, secure identity archives, and a few other things.

Who needs CIAM?

When it comes to CIAM, size and industry are non-factors. Security and data management should be the imperative for any organization with customer-facing systems. This includes any application that requires customer users to create an account and log in.
What are the benefits?

● CIAM enhances the customer experience with seamless, consistent identity-based access and tools for self-sufficiency.

● Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) ensures profile and data security for customers and the organization.

● Reporting and analytics capabilities deliver actionable insights that help understand user trends and improve customer experience.
