WSO2 Named a Strong Performer in “Customer Identity and Access Management, Q4 2022” Report by Independent Research Firm

Nov 17, 2022

Mountain View, California, UNITED STATES Santa Clara, CA, Nov. 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WSO2 , the leader in digital transformation technology, today announced that it has been named by Forrester Research, Inc. as a Strong Performer in The Forrester Wave™: Customer Identity and Access Management, Q4 2022 report1 published on November 7, 2022. The report’s findings were based on a 22-criteria evaluation of the 15 software vendors that Forrester identified as the most significant customer identity and access management (CIAM) providers. The report is available from Forrester Research here . The Forrester Wave™: Customer Identity and Access Management, Q4 2022 report observed that, “More and more, a goal of CIAM is to support customer acquisition and retention through outstanding user experience and identity orchestration, while keeping these processes invisible to the end user. Vendors are responding to these requirements by exposing CIAM workflows and making self-services and authentication journeys more configurable and exposed as APIs.” Evaluating WSO2’s CIAM Suite In the Current Offering category of The Forrester Wave™: Customer Identity and Access Management, Q4 2022 report, WSO2 received scores of 5.0, the highest rating possible, in five criteria: data orchestration, users and roles, customer IDV (identity verification) and registration, authentication methods, and business systems integration. The report also gave WSO2 the highest scores possible for three criteria within the Strategy category: market approach, innovation roadmap, and delivery model. The Forrester Wave™: Customer Identity and Access Management, Q4 2022 report states, “WSO2 has invested in access management, identity management, administration, and identity verification to complement its traditional workflow-centric approach to business process mapping. In its strategy, the vendor shows a convincing market approach: tracking digital journeys on multiple channels, vertical accelerators, and regional hiring. Its spend on R&D is healthy, and its delivery model is strong at both on-premises and cloud-delivered CIAM solutions.” Empowering Developers to Deliver Secure, Personalized Digital Experiences WSO2’s CIAM Suite is a world-class, developer-focused solution that simplifies the process of creating unique and compelling digital experiences while minimizing the risks that can impede the success of a customer experience (CX) program.
