A way to open-source IAM solution
As a fast-growing company, with increasing number of employees and systems they use for everyday work, we stood in front of a similar problem as you might be facing right now. Several years ago, we did the research for Identity and Access management solution, that is financially acceptable, sustainable and without burdensome licence fees. We did very quickly find out that commercial IDM solutions are out of acceptable price range and lacks possibility of customizations, thus we turned our attention towards open-source solutions on the market. We found the products, and as an IT company, we took the integration as a challenge. And we did it! Actually, we found out that it is something we are good at and that we really love that stuff. That’s how started our story in IDM waters. Since then, we have built a strong team with multiple certifications and implemented many solutions based on our preferable product set for companies of various sectors all around the world.
To be able to fulfil all kinds of demands for identity and access managements, we are building our solutions on a set of the products that manages to cover all imaginable customers environments. From Windows to Linux, no matter the integration interface from SOAP to REST, all kinds of databases from Oracle to Postgres and of course including directories from LDAP to MS Active Directory. We are able to integrate any system thanks to huge amount of available connectors, and as a contributor, we are ready to create new connector for any of your specific needs. All this can be achieved thanks to open source products like midPoint by Evolveum, Keycloak and FreeIPA by RedHat.
The strongest proof, that our IDM solutions fits anybody is a variety of our clients and their very different environments. We created identity and access management based on Keycloak for the biggest non-profit organization in the world and on the other hand we participated on Keycloak customization and application integrations for one of the largest banks in the country. We implemented IDM solution based on midPoint for small size University and another midPoint integration for biggest mobile telecommunication company in the country and many more.
midPoint by Evolveum is the heart of every one of our comprehensive identity management solution.
