PORTLAND, Ore., Dec. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Janrain®, the company that pioneered the Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM) category, today announced it was recognized as "Overall Leader" in KuppingerCole's comprehensive Leadership Compass CIAM Platforms Report. KuppingerCole is the leading European research firm specializing in Information Security, Identity & Access Management (IAM) and Digital Transformation.
Citing Janrain's focus on enterprise clients who care about security as much as marketing, KuppingerCole senior analyst John Tolbert wrote, "Janrain is mature and highly scalable and should be seriously considered by organizations that need HA, GDPR-compliant consent management and comprehensive marketing analytics features. Since 2017 the company has shifted much of its R&D to security, which will begin to dominate its roadmap and lead to further differentiation." In addition to beating out SAP/Gigya, Auth0, ForgeRock and other CIAM providers, Janrain is far ahead of traditional workforce-centric identity management providers such as Microsoft, IBM and Okta in fulfilling consumer-driven needs for brands.
As part of naming Janrain the Overall CIAM Leader, KuppingerCole listed Janrain as a Leader for all matrices touting Overall Product Leadership, Overall Market Innovator, and Overall Market Leadership as well as for all correlated views charting Market/Product, Product/Innovation and Innovation/Market. Janrain also received high marks for security, functionality, integration, interoperability, usability, innovativeness, market position, financial strength and ecosystem.
