LONDON – 7 January 2020 – The Auth0 Identity Platform, a product unit within Okta, today announced a partnership with systems integrator iC Consult Group. The specialist in Identity and Access Management (IAM) is Auth0’s first partner covering the German market and works with 50% of major German companies on the DAX stock index. iC Consult Group also operates globally with 12 offices across the UK, Europe, America, and Asia.
The addition of iC Consult Group and Auth0’s overall growth in DACH indicates demand for cloud-based identity management solutions that balance security and customer experience. According to a recent survey from Germany’s digital association Bitkom and KPMG, cloud is an important driver of digital transformation with 73% of German companies using some form of cloud computing. iC Consult Group introduces a tremendous opportunity for Auth0 to help German customers increase their efficiency in managing user identities across digital apps and services.
“In the area of identity management, we’re seeing more of our customers deviate from on-premise to cloud-based alternatives. Auth0 addresses this need by providing a lightweight solution that is quick to implement and does not tie up unnecessary development resources. Because at the end of the day, it’s all about accelerating the digitization of services,” said Andre Priebe, Chief Technology Officer at iC Consult Group.
In addition to the classic enterprise IAM topics of governance, provisioning, Single Sign On (SSO) and identity federation, the systems integrator wants to focus more on consumer IAM, including social media logins like Sign in with Apple, and Device Flow for the Internet of Things.
"We are thrilled to welcome iC Consult Group to our program. The move to the cloud requires a new approach and specific expertise. Combining Auth0's flexible and extensible identity platform with iC Consult Group's experience moving businesses into the cloud can be a true source of competitive advantage for our mutual customers,” said Bill Lapcevic, VP of business development at Auth0.
