IBM Security Verify for Consumer IAM Features

Simplify privacy and consent management

Data privacy regulations, such as GDPR and CCPA, require clear and transparent user consent management. Verify includes out-of-the-box workflows that help developers and privacy officers collaborate quicker and more accurately to embed requirements directly into applications while automating away unnecessary repetition. Templatizing granular requirements within a single portal allows developers to apply rules across different applications quickly.

Support modern passwordless authentication methods

Authentication methods evolve over time. Move beyond knowledge-based questions and SMS/email one-time passwords with mobile push notifications, user biometric verification, QR codes or FIDO2 passwordless authentication.

Integrate social login

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

Protect with risk-based authentication and adaptive access

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

Guide developers with the identity help they need

Developers shouldn't have to be identity experts to work with CIAM solutions. With Verify's extensible APIs, software development kits and guided experiences, developers can consume CIAM capabilities quickly and continue to focus on core application development.

Maintain a single identity for external users

Onboard any application to be centrally managed with Verify single sign-on (SSO), with integration options like OIDC and SAML 2.0. Managing multiple applications with Verify allows external users to maintain a single identity as they interact with your organization across channels, and progressive profiling along with consent management provides a consistent and transparent data sharing experience to reduce friction throughout their journey.

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.
