In today's digital age, where security breaches are more and more common, robust identity and access management solutions have become a cornerstone of secure cloud services. Auth0, a leading authorization and authentication platform, has revealed itself as a game-changing, future-ready identity protection service. As of June 2023, SAFEQ Cloud offers seamless integration with Auth0.

By providing seamless and secure identity management solutions, Auth0 is driving the future of authentication. Auth0 (Owned by Okta) is an agile, drop-in solution to add authentication and authorization services to a variety of applications, including cloud print systems.

In this blog post, we will delve into this identity management platform. We will explore its value and discuss how it is reshaping the landscape of authentication.


What does Auth0 do?

Auth0 is an authentication and authorization platform that simplifies the process of adding secure authentication to web and mobile office applications. This system provides all the essentials for constructing and managing a secure identity system. It includes user administration, authentication, data security, and password control.

Like similar identity and access management solutions (Okta, Microsoft Azure, Google Workspace, PingID, and more), Auth0 serves as an Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) solution, enabling developers to incorporate robust identity management features into their applications without having to build the infrastructure from scratch. The solution offers a comprehensive set of tools and features that allow developers to implement single sign-on (SSO), multi-factor authentication (MFA), and identity management effortlessly.

Auth0 is widely recognized as a trusted and innovative identity platform. Its robust features have made it the go-to choice for developers and enterprises worldwide. Auth0 provides a scalable and secure system foundation, empowering organizations to centralize and manage software user identities effortlessly.

Like other IT systems, print services can integrate Auth0 in its infrastructure and provide users with an extended portfolio of authentication mechanisms to keep users and data safe in an unsafe world. Print solutions that support Auth0 provide next-level security that, according to Jeana Tahnk, Senior Director, Global Communications at Auth0, guarantees 99.99% availability on the public cloud, a deployment option available with SAFEQ Cloud.
