OpenID Connect is a wildly popular, standards-based protocol for handling authentication and authorization. It allows third-party systems and applications to trust an identity authenticated from a centralized system. This means that one user can sign on to multiple applications with just one credential.
Modern businesses of all sizes use OpenID Connect to authenticate their staff, contractors, partners and customers. In the past, setting up OpenID Connect required lots of careful planning, expensive server setup on internal networks and of course constant maintenance. Assertiv changes the game by having a ready-now OpenID Connect service in the cloud available for you to start using immediately. No more patching, no more maintenance.
OpenID Connect is becoming increasingly important when developing an Identity and Access Management strategy for your organization. In a landscape where applications are being developed at a rapid pace, it is your job to ensure authentication and access to assets is managed in a controlled manner.
Trying to maintain separate user databases for all of your applications is technically difficult. Additionally, having users remember different credentials for different systems will reduce engagement across the organization.
Assertiv supports OpenID Connect which provides you with a highly scalable (meaning: lots of users), centralized cloud authentication and authorization source. Maintain your users in one secure location and integrate OpenID Connect enabled applications and systems with Assertiv easily.
