Why Gluu?

We were tired of the status quo.

Before starting Gluu we were IAM integrators. We worked with all the leading enterprise and open source platforms. Restrictive licenses and high-priced resources were the norm. The market was in need of a horizontally scalable, highly flexible, modern open source access management platform.


Flexibility first.

Most organizations have unique requirements for access management. Using custom authentication and authorization scripts that are inserted into the Gluu web console and compiled at run time, the Gluu Server can enforce business-driven policy and utilize external services or call security APIs.


No per user, per integration or license fees. Ever.

We don't sell software and licenses. We provide operational support. The Gluu Server is and always will be free to use in production. By eliminating per user, per application and licensing fees, your organization is never subject to predatory pricing, vendor lock-in or user and application limits.
