The Leadership Compass provides an overview of the industry and evaluates vendors based on the use cases, experiences, business rules, and technical capabilities required by B2C companies today, and their anticipated needs in the future. The criteria also involved evaluating overall functionality, security, partner ecosystem, licensing models, as well as specific features such as authentication options, APIs, IoT integration, and Single Sign On (SSO).

Auth0 is a strong contender in the CIAM space, especially for organizations that need quick-to-deploy CIAM solutions. Those that have programming expertise alongside major consumer-facing applications should strongly consider Auth0 when doing RFPs.”
