Pain point

For enterprises competing in the "borderless and digital world", protecting sensitive systems and customer confidential data is crucial. However, the current network security situation is not optimistic. According to Forbes, there were 4.1 billion records of data leakage in the first half of 2019 alone. In 2020, many illegal elements use enterprise security loopholes to commit cybercrimes, causing social and economic chaos.

Protecting and utilizing digital identity information is crucial. When customer data is abused or stolen due to improper maintenance, the enterprise will not only suffer business losses but also may face huge compliance fines and other legal penalties.


Security and identity are complementary. An identity-centric security approach can better manage people, devices and applications. Now more and more enterprises begin to use IDaaS services. These services not only help them to manage their identities efficiently but also protect their sensitive systems and confidential information from infringement.

Investing in IDaaS will greatly help protect enterprise data from attacks, while enabling employees to work more effectively and providing more value to enterprise customers.

Besides, according to a recent study by Zsclarer, to cope with the new epidemic in 2020, 75% of enterprises have accelerated their digital transformation plan to meet the needs of fast-growing customers, and the digital transformation will continue.

As companies accelerate their digital transformation, they find that "identity and access management" is critical to business success. But at the same time, the implementation of identity and access management is complex and full of risks. In short, a sound identity and access management solution can determine the success or failure of a digital transformation project. A successful digital transformation project includes identity and access management solution from the beginning.

According to the data from 2016 to 2019, the proportion of its expenditure of Chinese enterprises in the world, and the relative ratio of GDP, the digitization degree of Chinese enterprises is in rapid growth. As companies gradually recover from the global epidemic in 2020, they will also face a large backlog of its projects. However, the funds used to complete these projects are limited. The Gartner report predicts that CIOs may focus their spending on "subscriptions" and "cloud services" to reduce costs. By 2020, infrastructure as a service (LAAS) space is expected to grow by 13.4% to $50.4 billion, and 27.6% to $64.3 billion by 2021.
Therefore, the construction of identity cloud IDaaS will help enterprises realize digital transformation faster, reduce financial burden, and effectively avoid creating obstacles for enterprise development, and increase unnecessary costs.
Self-built or purchased third party identity cloud IDaaS ?
Reduce development costs
Third-party IDaaS accelerates enterprise innovation
Many companies choose to build an internal identity management system from scratch, but this is often difficult to adapt to today's business needs. It takes at least a few months from design to online identity system, which is expensive and labor cost is high. Purchasing a complete third-party identity authentication solution can save the manpower and material resources spent on self-construction, and IDaaS vendors represented by Authing support monthly subscription payments, which can greatly reduce expenses.
More and more companies find that adopting third-party identity authentication solutions is faster and easier than building their own. By removing the "identity authentication" from the "plate" of the project, valuable R&D time can be freed, and R&D personnel can focus more on building business logic and enhancing the value of core products instead of building and maintaining corporate identity solutions .
Every business has its own identity provider and infrastructure. Using third-party identity authentication solutions, companies can complete the integration with any identity provider in an hour or less. By saving thousands of hours of time, companies can focus more on core competitiveness, which speeds up the pace of innovation and enables companies to create more value for customers.
