Simplify Access for Enterprise Customers and Partners

Enable secure access for your B2B business customers and their consumers with flexible organization management capabilities.

WSO2 B2B CIAM is available via multi-tenant SaaS, installable software or private cloud deployments.

B2B CIAM, Explained

Organizations that work with business customers, franchises, distributors and suppliers need digital customer experience (CX) apps to run their business. B2B CIAM is the identity foundation that helps organizations get their apps and services to market quickly and securely.

Separate CX tenancies

Easily create and manage distinct, segregated CX tenancies for each business customer to increase security and privacy

Custom access policies

Let each customer organization define their own security policies such as access roles, login journeys and choice of IdP

Delegated administration

Empower your customer organizations to run their own admin functions including user onboarding

Critical questions you should ask when considering a B2B CIAM solution

Will it work for how we do business as well as how our commercial customers do theirs? Will it ensure a smart, streamlined, and secure user experience for our commercial customers and their consumers? Will it be easy to use and manage, even on a large scale? Will it be safe, reliable, and well-supported? Will it be affordable now and in the future?

Pursue Innovative Business Models

There’s no limit to all the ways in which businesses work together. In B2B CIAM, organizations need to create innovative, low-friction customer experiences that can be delivered through many different organizational hierarchy models.

WSO2’s B2B CIAM enables a secure, low-friction digital experience across all your partners, franchises, affiliates, and subsidiaries, regardless of their organizational structure.


Business to business, for organizations whose customers are other businesses, not individuals.


Business to business to consumer, for organizations that serve their own customers through independent partners.


For organizations with their own direct customers plus partners or franchises, or any other combination.
