EUROPE'S LEADING IDENTITY SERVICES PROVIDER

Ubisecure makes it possible for organisations to use rich digital identities to simplify and secure access for applications, services and devices

Our Story

Ubisecure was founded in 2002 as a European identity services provider with a vision to enable digital business by creating a web of trusted connections between digital services, devices and identities on a global scale. Our dedicated team of professionals have unparalleled vision, knowledge and experience through the successful delivery of hundreds of Identity & Access Management projects to our loyal customer base. Our Identity Platform helps companies of all sizes solve identity management problems by helping them increase customer engagement, provide better services, reduce customer care costs and enable new business models.

In 2006 we delivered our first Customer IAM solution to support IAM functionality like Privacy by Design, Web Single Sign-On, Self-Management and more, but optimised for large scale b2b or b2c use case.  We also determined that the true value of Customer IAM would be where the business drivers of customer experience, operational efficiency, security & privacy and meeting regulation would interplay, and these discreet areas have driven our Identity Platform and product development decisions ever since.

Our Management team are highly active in driving the new standards that underpin the emerging identity ecosystems.  We have development, operations and people headquartered in Finland with local offices in the UK and highly committed global investors and strategic partners.

We now support hundreds of organizations manage their millions of customer and employee identities, policies and identity related services. At Ubisecure we like to think we empower organizations with modern identity driven ecosystems that make deploying, managing and using strong online identities easier, safer and more private.  And by doing all that, we enable true digital business.

Our customers and partners

Millions of people, devices and applications rely on Ubisecure technology for security, privacy and convenience.
