IGA solutions, whether offered by a vendor, or built in-house, have had one critical missing link, the ability to govern, administer and control who can access assets across their digital landscape. This is called ‘Authorization,’, and companies tend to focus their efforts on the 2 other sides of IGA: Authentication and Identity Management. Missing is the ‘last mile’ of IGA, which is the Authorization Management layer. PlainID offers the only solution to focus all features around Authorization, making it the most robust Authorization solution available, and seen by many as a critical upgrade to IGA.

How we are different

-Business - Oriented approach: Policy Manager presents the business owner with a graphical view of the authorization decision, rules and the connection between them to identities, rather than the traditional technical language. In addition, a broad set of APIs offers the flexibility the technology experts require.
-Policy lifecycle management- Using Policy Manager, you can build your policy on a graph based editor, and then have it approved and certified. That, with the policy simulator function, provides a tighter control of access to data and resources.
-Universal Authorization Support - Policy Manager separates the business logic from the technical implementation, enabling usage or distribution of the same policy to various consumers. Policy Manager also answers different Authorization requests/ different access patterns with the same policies, keeping a consistency of answers across the various apps. Policy Manager supports all industry leading standards (REST, JWT, XACML, OAuth, etc.) in addition to adaptive integration with leading vendors such as AWS.
