What the experts say about Ubisecure and CIAM
“The Ubisecure Identity Platform is a critical component of the eHealth service as its functionality provides Swedish citizens with very easy to use process for accessing their health records.”
“The Ubisecure Identity Platform is delivered as a single integrated IAM suite that provides both Web Access Management and Identity Federation capabilities with a fully integrated database and application server.”
“The Ubisecure Identity Platform has helped us realise a unified IAM solution for both consumers and corporate customers, creating an environment where you only need one identity.”
According to Gartner, “there is an increase in demand for CIAM technologies due to its importance to combining successful UX to attract and retain more customers with security and privacy capabilities. Commercial technologies are now more popular than “homegrown” solutions.” Further, “CIAM technology popularity has surpassed homegrown solutions, but integration with adjacent technologies is still key to address digital experience and risk management needs.”

- RapidLEI Partner Spotlight – Vorna IDJanuary 21, 2021In December 2020, the Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF) announced the development of its verifiable LEI development programme. The vision of the programme is for collaboration on the development of a verifiable LEI (vLEI) – a cryptographically verifiable credential containing the LEI. Against this background, I sat down with RapidLEI partner Vorna ID’s board member and experienced financial markets leader, Matias Johansson, to discuss his take on the vLEI programme, and how Vorna ID plan to take part. Vorna ID is an LEI-based B2B customer authentication and authorisation service, leveraging RapidLEI’s automation technology. Read more about the partnership in our press release here (March 2020). F: First, how’s it all going at Vorna ID? Tell us a little bit about your journey in 2020. M: It’s going well, thank you. We were fortunate to secure initial funding for the identification of market opportunities by Business Finland’s Digital Trust programme. The programme helps Finnish companies build global business on digital trust and security. In June, shortly after the press release you mentioned, we launched Vorna ID in the Finnish market with multiple partners at our own Digital Live event. Chris Hudson from RapidLEI also gave a great presentation introducing the LEI to the many digital identity professionals. And since then we’ve been working on national-level B2G (business-to-government) and B2B (business-to-business) customer opportunities in several sectors, such as manufacturing and financial services. So all round, an exciting year despite the obvious challenges. F: How exciting is the vLEI programme? M: It’s very exciting for us especially given all the activity now in B2C Self Sovereign Identity and what it could mean for future B2B use cases. For example, the vLEI could provide reliable information about the organisation’s decision makers, which could be used in defining the organisation’s main users for a given digital resource. Vorna ID already has experience in trust services requirements and with remote identification, made possible by the new eIDAS regulation, this opens up opportunities for further advances in the automation of onboarding processes. F: What do you see as the opportunities from the vLEI? M: We all know that B2B relationships can be fairly complex when it comes to sharing and using confidential data. There’s an obvious market opportunity in leveraging verifiable credentials, such as the vLEI, in identity management to streamline online transactions. This kind of digital identity information could be used online, for example, over an OpenID Connect claim or in off-line transactions in decentralised identity networks, for example in blockchain transactions. F: What about Vorna ID specifically – how are you responding to this news? M: We’re working alongside RapidLEI, as our LOU (Local Operating Unit), in a strategic partnership to enable new digital identity use cases. Our target for this year is to execute pilot projects for governmental and financial services use cases. For us, the vLEI could also enable automated business partner onboarding and identity governance, which were also looking into. F: What else does 2021 hold for Vorna ID? M: Naturally, a big part will be working with current customer cases with our reseller and consulting partners here in Finland. In addition, we’re planning to participate in development projects within a Finnish manufacturing co-creation ecosystem, DIMECC. Look out to our upcoming online events and find out more about Vorna ID at vornaid.com...
- Digital identity in the UK in 2021 with TrueProfile.io’s René Seifert – Podcast Episode 37January 20, 2021https://media.blubrry.com/identitypodcast/p/content.blubrry.com/identitypodcast/Ubisecure_Podcast_STE-172.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts | Spotify | Pandora | Stitcher | Email | TuneIn | Deezer | RSS | MoreLet’s Talk About Digital Identity with René Seifert, Co-Founder & Co-Head at TrueProfile.io. In episode 37, René Seifert talks about the current status of identity in the UK; the government’s recent call for evidence and DIU (digital identity unit); the resultant six guiding principles – including privacy and inclusivity; the potential of self-sovereign identity to solve some of these issues; TrueProfile.io and the importance of verified credentials in an HR context; plus the ethical, political and technical challenges of ‘immunity passports’. “I think it’s interesting if we overlay this utopia of a self-sovereign identity that sounds maybe like science fiction today, and where these UK digital initiatives are geared, and my best guess is we can and will land somewhere in the middle.” René Seifert is a serial entrepreneur and co-head of TrueProfile.io, a credential verification solution provider. Powered by the DataFlow Group, TrueProfile.io provides these services in a modern environment via the adoption of Ethereum blockchain. Prior to this, René was the co-founder and co-CEO of Venturate AG, a crowdfunding platform allowing regular people to invest side-by- side with experienced business angels. In addition, he has been involved in founding several internet, tech and media companies, among the Holtzbrinck eLab. René, half German and half Croatian, began his career hosting radio shows and running an advertising agency parallel to his studies. He was head of marketing and presenter at the radio station Bayern 3. During the “new economy” he headed the entertainment department at Lycos Europe.

- Ubisecure CEO Review: 2020 roundup and looking into 2021January 14, 20212020 in review I think we can all agree that 2020 was not the year we were expecting! The pandemic has affected all of us in different ways and to different extents. Yet the silver lining for me was to see all the teams we have within Ubisecure adapt and continue regardless of last year’s challenges, continuing to communicate effectively, deliver first-rate services, and grow the company. This is a testament to each and every member of the Ubisecure team, dealing with remote working, home schooling, yet still growing Ubisecure as a leading identity specialist. Our 2020 milestones include: Great growth from both our Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM) software, Identity Platform, and Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) service, RapidLEI. On top of our 100% revenue growth in 2019, we saw a 50%+ revenue growth in 2020 (CAGR of 70% over the last two years) despite the impact of the pandemic. RapidLEI went from being the fastest growing LEI provider to becoming the world’s #1 issuer of validated LEIs. RapidLEI also topping the charts for best data quality results amongst the GLEIF-accredited Local Operating Units (LOUs). We announced support for the new Global LEI Foundation Validation Agent (VA) model to support on-demand LEI issuance for Banks, Fintech, CAs and Business Registries. We launched many new CIAM and LEI partnerships, including technology alliances with Hitachi (finger vein biometrics), Omada (Identity and Governance Administration), and Verimi (pan-European consumer digital identity platform). 2021 – Looking forward As I write this in the first week of January 2021, our teams across the organisation have already hit the ground running. We see an active, rapidly growing market, further driven by the current pandemic and ever-increasing cyber-attacks. This increase in malicious activity is leading organisations to ramp up cybersecurity efforts, including reviewing legacy Identity & Access Management solutions. More remote working serves to further blur the lines between ’employee’ and ‘customer’ identities, increasing the number of external identities an organisation manages. This has generated high demand for CIAM (Customer IAM) solutions, specifically built to streamline management of external identities, such as our Identity Platform. Building on our role as an Organisation Identity Expert Ubisecure’s plans for 2021 include further developments on our unique position as an Organisation Identity expert. We have strong recognition in this area both from analysts and from fellow identity management firms. We will continue to build on this capability, joining our LEI and CIAM business arms to launch our innovative representation governance solution, “Sign in with RapidLEI” service to enable individuals to assert a right to represent their organisation in financial transactions, legal signatures and more. Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI) The concept of Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI) is in its infancy and, in the general case, as yet independent of classical identity systems. As organisations seek services that can intertwine these systems, we will provide interoperation and also enable the issuance of organisation credentials as the result of LEI issuance (as now used in our “Sign in with RapidLEI” service). Identity Trust Anchors I also plan to continue educating on the importance of Trust Anchors through various media – how they enable online interaction, and how we have been implementing them for more than 10 years. I spoke on the subject at the virtual Digital Identity and Digital On-boarding for Banking conference at the end of 2020 – watch the video and others on the Ubisecure YouTube channel. Expanding use of national, local, and federated digital identities The Ubisecure CIAM platform has long supported the industry’s widest range of digital identity schemes, both at a national and enterprise level. In 2021, we will offer expanded support for identity verification from both existing identity platforms, like Germany-based Verimi, and real-time identity proofing, thanks to partnerships with organisations like Onfido. In Conclusion Overall, while the ongoing impact of the pandemic on our personal lives in 2021 may continue, 2020 has shown us that Ubisecure is well-prepared to deliver business as usual whilst keeping our staff safely working from home. I look forward to talking more about our 2021 innovations and Ubisecure’s continued growth as the year pans out....
