10 11 12 – WSO2 Identity Server Keeping the Bad Guys Away Since 2007!

WSO2 Identity Server turns 10 today on the 11th day of the 12th month of this year! Over the years the team has grown, research and development efforts have evolved, we’ve procured some big-name customers and various team members have gone on to publish stellar books on identity and access management.

To commemorate this day we thought we’d pick a few cool things (from a long list) about WSO2 Identity Server:

  • WSO2 Identity Server manages more than 40 million identities across the world.
  • Fully open source, WSO2 Identity Server has thousands of FREE users.
  • Mobile Connect support from WSO2 Identity Server is available for more than 900 million users in India.
  • Our first customer, ELM, manages over 4 million user identities and we’re still a part of their digital journey.
  • (Let the name dropping begin) Some of our other customers include Verifone, West Corporation, Verizon, HP, Seagate, Nutanix, T-Systems, and many in the educational industry such as Brigham Young University, New York University and Australian Catholic University.
  • We offer over 40 connectors in our connector store so that you can integrate with any system and enhance your system capabilities.
  • Single sign-on (SSO) and identity federation are our forte. You can ask any of our customers! Here’s a link to the latest version of the WSO2 Identity Server.
  • We were the winner for “Identity as a service” in 2011 at the KuppingerCole European identity awards. We also helped one of our customers to bag an award at EIC 2015 for their Mobile Connect implementation.
  • Prabath Siriwardena, our director of security architectures, is not only a renowned figure in the IAM space, but also the author of Advanced API Security, Maven Essentials and more.
