Digital transformation is the key word in today’s businesses. Identity Management is a pivotal element of this transformation, however traditional IAM does not suffice. iWelcome’s Identity & Access Management as a service, provides all the capabilities for organizations to interact with their employees, being inside or outside the organization, towards both internal and cloud applications.
iWelcome’s IDaaS also supports and scales for organizations that need to acquire and interact with their customers across all devices, omni-channel, during all the phases of a customer’s life cycle. That market is called Consumer Identity Access Management (CIAM) and iWelcome offers also that, as-as-service. Proof is delivered on a daily basis for millions of consumers in all kinds of industries: healthcare, media, publishing, retail and logistic services.
iWelcome provides a role based provisioning capability to automate the provisioning and deprovisioning of user accounts, groups and group memberships to on-premise and cloud applications. Embedded in our service we leverage for basic provisioning purposes, Apache Syncope, an Open Source system for managing digital identities in enterprise environments. For consumer business cases (CIAM), the same basic provisioning is used, but at much higher scale, to provide identity creation and constantly support the customer’s life cycle.
Welcome provides Identity as-a-Service for frictionless privacy-protected consumer services and security-enabled workforce processes. iWelcome is the only European born Identity Platform, headquartered in Europe and backed by European investors.
Millions of consumers and hundreds of thousands of employees across various industries rely on iWelcome on a daily basis. Analysts as Gartner and KuppingerCole have recognised iWelcome as a worldwide Product and Innovation Leader with “Excellent” ratings.
Building truly winning partnerships with its customers, iWelcome offers lowest TCO and a time-to-service in weeks. Applying best-of-breed Private Cloud Technology, customers benefit at both ends: using a SaaS service while not having to share critical resources.
The Open Source selection resulted in Apache Syncope and Tirasa, which provided ts activities to support the Army staff in building the best IdM system possible, for their own specific needs.
After a PoC built by Tirasa and based on Apereo CAS and Apache Syncope, the Institute decided to proceed on this path by engaging Tirasa itself to realize the whole infrastructure.
Tirasa built for Nivo1 a full-blown, integrated, IAM platform based on the Open Source tools as Apache Syncope and Apereo CAS, granting full control, on customer base, to both user lifecycle and differentiated authentication and authorization. This combination of tools gives Nivo1 a distinct competitive advantage.
Currently the whole infrastructure, based on Apache Syncope, manages about 5.000 users, periodically synchronized with HR.
We choose Apache Syncope to carry out the provisioning and account management role as part of our authorization platform, due to its simplicity and flexible adoption to the product needs. Another important consideration was the knowledge and excellent support provided by the Tirasa team
Tirasa provided timely support and always followed up to ensure that all issues were resolved to satisfaction.
Stichting Bibliotheek.nl is very content with Apache Syncope as a product and intends to extend its services based on it.
SURFnet is currently planning how to include Syncope it in its identity management and collaboration middleware for provisioning / deprovisioning needs.
SWM is very satisfied with both the community and the commercial support of Tirasa.
We have had a few years to get to know Apache Syncope and have gained some in-depth knowledge of its use. For this, the support provided by Tirasa has been a vital aid. We have received help in the form of, for instance, code examples providing a preview of the implementation, as well as solutions to configuration problems and quick fixes to any errors we have discovered.
Users can log in via SPID, thanks to the functional extension developed by Tirasa.
Currently, the U.Porto is the most international of Portugal’s universities thanks to its active cooperation with hundreds of higher education institutions worldwide. The ambition now is to establish the U.Porto as one of the top 100 universities in the world by 2020.
The UShareSoft UForge Identity management service, is based on Apache Syncope, which was expressly chosen for it's richly defined and complete RESTful API.
