Why Gluu Enterprise?

The enterprises that want to self-host an identity platform based on Gluu Server 4.x can subscribe for Gluu Enterprise. It includes a commercially-backed distribution of several open-source identities and access management (IAM) components, integrated and working together. One can choose how they want to deploy on Linux servers or containers, as well as which components they want to use.

If you have security and privacy requirements that restrain cloud solutions, then Self-hosting makes sense. If you have performance or customization requirements that cloud-hosted identity platforms can’t satisfy, then also it is sensible to opt for Self-hosting. Your identity service takes work to build. But with a Gluu Enterprise subscription, it’s easier, as Sennovate is here to make sure your deployment and operations are successful.


Reasons to choose Gluu for Enterprise:


  • Scalability

The best part of Gluu Server is its scalability. You can scale up by adding more servers automatically without any interruption with the help of Gluu’s cloud-native distribution. The Gluu Server can handle it all, regardless of your performance requirements. It is the only identity management solution that can take advantage of Couchbase’s next-generation persistence capabilities.

  • Flexibility

The Gluu Server is flexible enough that allows you to add custom code to integrate backend systems at various points in the authentication and authorization process. It defines numerous interfaces and allows you to write a bit of Python or Java code to implement the exact logic you need to get the job done. Also, Gluu is based on open-source code. This means that you will never again be stuck waiting for a vendor to ship some critical new feature.

  • Privacy

Privacy is like the synonym of Gluu. It works best when it comes to privacy. The secrets, like user passwords and client credentials, are stored in the cloud. You know exactly where your data resides by self-hosting a Gluu Server. Also, to interact with end-users after authentication to gather consent before sharing PII with third parties, you can use the UMA protocol. Your organization can comply with GDPR with the help of this.
