Identity Server provides developers with the building blocks to enhance customer experience, increase security, improve operational efficiency and comply with regulations.
Deploy on-premises, or hybrid
For on-premises, stay in complete control of data and service residency. For hybrid, maintain the core user directory on-premises, but run IAM capabilities from a SaaS infrastructure.
Streamline registration and logins
Convert and retain more customers with simple, yet secure, onboarding and repeat visits. Connect identity providers (IdPs), enable single sign-on (SSO), offer multi-factor authentication (MFA) and more to achieve the correct balance of user experience and security.
Make identity management easy
Empower your customers to manage their own accounts, from simple password resets to delegating account access, providing a better experience and taking the burden off your IT support desk. Consolidate data siloes and adopt a solution that grows with your business.
Avoid a data breach
Most data breaches are caused by compromised customer credentials and poor access control implementations. Identity Server helps you stop unauthorised access to your systems, protecting your brand’s reputation and avoiding regulatory non-compliance fines.
Your identity data, your choice of location.
Ubisecure supports on-premises (Identity Server) cloud (IDaaS) and hybrid deployments of its leading CIAM software (Identity Platform).
If you prefer to deploy your CIAM software on-premises, or your regulatory context requires you to do so, Ubisecure Identity Server is for you. Identity Server is on-premises software deployed at your own location(s) through a certified deployment partner. Partners have local and vertical specialisms – find the right partner in our directory and/or contact us to discuss your requirements.

Case study: S Group
Retail giant S Group uses the Ubisecure CIAM Identity Platform to achieve a wide range of Customer IAM functionality designed around providing customers with a single identity for all S Group company applications and services, including step-up authentication.
Identity Server vs Building CIAM In-house
Customer IAM is complex. Don’t fall into the trap of attempting to build CIAM capabilities using in-house developers. These projects often end up over budget and beyond projected timelines when the level of expertise needed is underestimated or in-house talent moves on. Plug in proven, standards-based identity APIs, reducing risk and letting your developers get back to what they do best – focusing on your core business.
Identity Server capabilities include:
Single Sign-On (SSO)
SSO allows your customers to log in just once to gain access to all authorised applications, as opposed to separate login credentials for each area of your service. This reduces friction in your user journeys, delighting customers and reducing login-related issues for your help desk. It also strengthens security by reducing password fatigue and simplifying revocation of access.
Identity Server enables SSO whether your apps use SAML, OpenID Connect or OAuth 2.0.
Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)
MFA adds a second authentication factor to user logins, significantly increasing assurance that users are who they say they are. Most data breaches are caused by weak, stolen or compromised passwords, so adding a second layer of authentication greatly reduces this risk to brand reputation and regulatory compliance.
Identity Server enables a rich variety of authentication methods and Identity Providers (IdPs) to be integrated to your service, so you can offer MFA options appropriate to your location, data sensitivity and regulatory context.
Empower your customers to delegate the right to use services on their behalf. Delegated Authority supports complex, multi-tier use cases of individual-individual, individual-organisation, organisation-individual, and organisation-organisation delegation.
In practice, this can look like a B2C ‘family plan’ – where one member of a household is the admin user for all associated accounts – or a B2B plan – where an organisation admin is able to manage sub-user accounts – and many more access rights scenarios.
