Alma Media Cut Months From Their Time to Market
In the end, Alma Media brought their ecosystem to market 50% faster by streamlining identity management and reducing the amount of time the team has to spend on maintenance and security. Every day, the company uses Auth0’s Anomaly Detection to prevent malicious login attempts. “Without Auth0, we would have to develop that feature on our own,” Syrjänen says. “Anomaly Detection helps us identify bad actors and prevent attacks.”
Auth0 is currently on two-third of all Alma media sites, including all of their largest sites. Alma Media will implement Auth0 on the remaining sites by the end of 2021 to support their plans of doubling the number of registered Alma Media users in the same time frame.
Part of this growth strategy involves targeting a younger audience. Syrjänen says Auth0’s social logins will play an important role in converting younger users.
Faster scaling and time to market weren’t the only benefits of using Auth0. Alma Media cites a 10% reduction in licensing charges from reduced maintenance burden and 30% total cost-of-ownership savings as part of their Auth0 return on investment. Syrjänen also commented on Auth0’s reliability and lack of downtime as a benefit. “I sleep better at night knowing we have a service where we can trust that it stays up.”
