Identity is the first step. That's the easy part. Knowing which features, actions, or data the user may access is what makes your software work.
It became very clear to me that customer service is Queen. Authress has all the features of the other products we need, has clear pricing, and so with all the help that the team has given us it became very clear that we will implement our services in fraction of the time than with any other alternative.

Our architecture is very modular with a lot of separate, autonomous microservices, so we needed distributed permission management. With Authress, my team was able to bake it in from the beginning. Architecturally, it's been a great choice.
As we're working in agile fashion, it's great to have an ability to change roles and permissions easily as we go, instead of having to set them in stone at an early phase.
I couldn't find another solution that offers this level of flexibility and permission control, and building our own would mean not focusing on our core competency. I was lucky to find Authress!
Rafał Nowosielski, Head of Technology, Adia Europe
Our most important pain point was to secure user data in a reliable way. Authress decreased our pain considerably here among cost of setting this system up ourselves, time to implement, and level of quality in the implementation. I'm grateful that this product exists. It made the cost of fixing the problem 'possible'.

We realised what we were looking for is what we call an IdP aggregator. We just wanted the ability for different clients to log in via their own IdP, but without having to build each integration into our own app code.
We looked into AWS Cognito, which on the surface seems like it should be able to do this, but as we tried to design a solution just found we needed workaround after workaround. What we'd been trying to do in Cognito for two weeks, we managed to have up and running with Authress in just a few hours.
