Open Source Gluu: The Okta Alternative
The open source Gluu platform is used by clients in the government, banking, telco,
healthcare, and education markets for identity and access management (IAM),
especially where open standards are preferred, like OpenID, OAuth, SAML and
Hosted cloud identity offerings from companies like Okta are a great option
for many companies. But by bringing identity back “in-house” (or at least
onto your Azure or Amazon cloud), companies are saving money, gaining
agility, and improving security. This is true for both employee and
customer authentication. Even API access management can benefit, enabling
enterprises to rollout new services more quickly.
Open source is established as the best way to develop infrastructure
software. Well managed open source projects are not just less expensive,
they are more innovative and more reliable. Lack of transparency doesn’t
lead to better code. That’s why large cloud providers build their
infrastructure on open source.
If you have an authentication or API access management project in the near
future or just want to learn more about our products and how they can cut
your cost and implementation time in half, we’d love to walk you through a
30-minute demo to show you how we can help with your IAM requirements.
