Auth0 Identity Platform facilitates clients to leverage Microsoft Azure

Shiv Ramji, the Chief Product Officer at Auth0

The Auth0 Identity Platform, a product unit within Okta announced the launch of the Auth0 Identity Platform on Microsoft Azure to offer its clients Azure as a cloud deployment option.

The addition of Azure as an Auth0 private cloud platform option unlocks a secure cloud deployment option for organisations seeking strategic fit with their technology stack, supporting regional data residency capabilities and higher control over customer data. 

Auth0 leverages Azure integration

Companies moving to the cloud with a Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM) solution need to control their customer data and require local data residency capabilities.

They have to make a hard choice of either deploying a CIAM solution that supports their product differentiation goals or one that meets their  technical and regulatory requirements.

Auth0 eliminates the need to choose by providing companies with tools to support security, compliance and data residency needs that may apply to them across multiple regions globally.

Auth0 accelerates time to value and go-to-market strategies to meet long-term growth goals. 

Benefits of the Auth0 Identity Platform on Azure 

Technology stack alignment

Organisations are facilitated with the flexibility to choose Azure as their preferred cloud vendor for greater technology stack alignment with existing investments in Azure. 

Data residency

This innovative development facilitates improved data residency capabilities for Auth0 customers by leveraging and harnessing Azure’s widespread geographic infrastructure.

Streamlined experience with a private cloud 

Auth0 is facilitating its beloved customers to leverage Azure which is a modern, cloud-native platform that is built with a focus on security and compliance at every level.

Companies in need of data residency can harness periodic feature updates while maintaining control over the timing and ability to roll back without having to maintain them.

This leads to faster time to market and a seamless experience for companies and their clients. 

Stakeholder comments on Auth0’s Azure integration

Shiv Ramji, the Chief Product Officer at Auth0 offered more clarity on this aspect.

“As more apps move to the cloud globally, organisations depend on their identity service to protect and manage access for their most critical users, applications, and data.”

“The Auth0 Identity Platform on Azure can help unlock a secure and compliant cloud deployment experience for organisations seeking support across CIAM use cases.”

“Industries like retail and financial services need to select vendors that are not competitive to their business when operating in regions where certain cloud providers have higher geographic availability and those that have existing technology investments in Azure.”

“Companies like Auth0 add value by integrating their solutions with Microsoft Azure,” said Mandana Javaheri, Global Senior Director, SCI Business Development at Microsoft Corp.

“With Azure, Auth0 clients access performance capabilities and control over their environment without maintaining it, thus clients can focus more on their core business proposition.”
