IBM Security Verify for Consumer IAM Features

Make identity developer-friendly

Developers shouldn't have to be identity experts to work with IAM platforms. With Verify's APIs, software development kits, and guided developer portal, make it easy to build and launch new applications securely.

Protect with risk-based authentication and adaptive access

Strike the balance between security and user experience by infusing continuous, risk-based authentication that informs dynamic access decisions. Make access frictionless for low-risk customers and only challenge MFA when necessary, while simultaneously protecting against suspicious or malicious activity like credential stuffing, account takeover, fradulent devices, and more.

Comply with data protection regulations

Data privacy regulations, such as GDPR and CCPA, require clear and transparent user consent. Track privacy and consent preferences, giving users control over what is shared to the applications they touch.

Support the latest user authentication methods

MFA methods evolve over time, and a common authentication platform like Verify helps you keep up. Use traditional methods like SMS/email OTP or upgrade to modern and even passwordless methods like QR codes, and FIDO2.

Integrate social sign-on

Allow users to conveniently login with various social providers, from Google and LinkedIn to more region-specific providers.

Use a common framework for all your applications

Onboard any application to be centrally managed with Verify, with integration options like OIDC and SAML 2.0. Single sign-on delivers the seamless user experience your customers expect.

Implement user management and self-care

Build identity operations into your consumer-facing apps with easy-to-consume REST APIs for common user actions. Use pre-built templates for enrollment, registration, username/password reset, and other identity operations.

Monitor activity and performance

Monitor the health of your authentication program with easy-to-use reporting on application usage, authentication transactions, and token management details.
