Build vs. buy: Roll your own auth vs. a pre-built identity layer

Whitepaper cover with title and black shaded square graphics

If your organisation is introducing new mobile or web-based applications, you may have come to a decision whether you build this in-house or select a vendor’s pre-built option to get the job done. This includes identity and access management (CIAM) solutions.

This identity layer can help get your applications out to market faster, with lower costs, but IT leaders can question whether third-party solutions are the best option when there are so many levels of application access required, specific to their customer base.

Download this whitepaper to read the key considerations for a “build vs. buy'' discussion, and why there are advantages to a pre-built CIAM solution.
