AnyAuth from built.io Provides Mobile Developers a Preferred Login Mechanism to Authenticate Users
|Stuart Parkerson in Enterprise Wednesday, August 13, 2014|
To help developers add additional security functionality, built.io has introduced a new product, AnyAuth, which allows enterprise app developers to use their preferred login mechanism to authenticate users.
The new offering builds on built.io’s ability to offer authentication via Facebook, Twitter, and Google, as well as enterprise social networks like tibbr, Chatter and Socialcast. AnyAuth takes this a step further by providing a generic identity federation layer and authentication API for mobile applications.
AnyAuth allows developers to authenticate using any 3rd party system, irrespective of security protocol (e.g. OAuth, SAML, WS-Trust), and integrate their apps with a company’s corporate directory, regardless of the product used (e.g. LDAP directory, Microsoft Active Directory). From a development perspective, finding, creating, and logging in a user is one single API call, which simplifies development and enables a faster login experience for the user.
