LONDON - July 29, 2019 - Auth0, a global leader in Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS), today announced it has been selected as the identity management platform of choice for Arduino®, the world's leading open-source hardware and software ecosystem. With a global community of 30 million "makers", Arduino will use Auth0 to replace its own Single Sign On solution for all of its public facing web properties, including Arduino Create and community apps.
Arduino is on a mission to enable anyone to innovate by making complex technology simple to use. Its simple and accessible electronic boards, open-source software, and user community have powered thousands of projects, from everyday objects to complex scientific instruments. Educational institutions around the world also use Arduino as a resource for STEAM programmes – integrating Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math.
Arduino discovered its homegrown authentication solution would not scale to meet the rapidly developing needs of its growing global community, and reached out to Auth0. In addition to Single Sign On, Arduino will take advantage of Auth0's new Universal Login, which enables developers to completely customise their branded authentication experiences quickly, and Device Flow for browserless or input-constrained devices.
"We wanted a robust platform to replace our SSO solution but also give us the flexibility to do cool, new things in the device authentication space. Auth0 is a brand we admire, and their API-based approach makes it easy to migrate our login data in a way that's completely transparent for the customer," said Gianluca Varisco, CISO at Arduino. "We are excited to welcome them to our global community."
Auth0 and Arduino plan to leverage the combined power of their communities and events, and explore a technical partnership in the IoT domain. Auth0 currently secures more than 2.5 billion logins per month for 21 million users.
"I have been using Arduino for years as the brain for my personal projects, so working with them in a business capacity is really rewarding," said Eugenio Pace, CEO and co-founder of Auth0. "When you empower the developer with simple, powerful tools, the whole business benefits. We are excited by the reach of the Arduino community and aligned in our mission to help the developer in their journey to innovate."
The Auth0 Identity Platform, a product unit within Okta, takes a modern approach to identity and enables organizations to provide secure access to any application, for any user. Auth0 is a highly customizable platform that is as simple as development teams want, and as flexible as they need. Safeguarding billions of login transactions each month, Auth0 delivers convenience, privacy, and security so customers can focus on innovation. For more information, visit https://auth0.com.
