Last week, Magento, an eBay Enterprise company, announced its Magento B2B Program, which will continue to drive expansion in the B2B segment. Magento and its partners, AOE among them, stand to benefit from a rapidly accelerating market. Recent Forrester Research, Inc., figures indicate that the number of all B2B buyers who will complete at least half of their work by purchasing online is expected to exceed 50 percent within the next two years.

According to the announcement, dated August 13, Magento is “a leader in B2B commerce, with 30 percent of its Enterprise clients using the platform for B2B.” And, according to a current global commerce share report by Hivemind Magento is the most popular E-Commerce platform on the market.

AOE was one of the first Magento Enterprise Partners and is among the Magento market leaders, a fact also reflected by being named the Omni Channel Partner of the Year for EMEA by Magento's parent company, eBay Enterprise, at the Imagine Commerce Conference in April.

With more than 40 Magento Enterprise developers AOE has one of the world's largest Magento teams.

Combining expertise in cybersecurity: AOE launches subsidiary Bare.ID

WIESBADEN, August 09, 2021 - AOE, one of the world's leading service providers for digital transformation, headquartered in Wiesbaden, the capital of the German state of Hesse, is launching Bare.ID, a fully-managed-as-a-service identity, authentication and authorization solution. Hosted exclusively as a central single sign-on authentication and authorization point in German data centers, the identity management solution administers a directory of identities (PII) and their access rights to the various applications. AOE guarantees the highest security standards and complies with German data protection regulations. Bare.ID serves as a central single sign-on authentication and authorization point for application landscapes and connects all services via standard protocols such as OpenID Connect or SAML. Furthermore, Bare.ID manages information about the identities of users. These can either be maintained manually by the customer or can be connected via federation techniques to external identity sources such as an existing Active Directory or Identity and Access Management System at the customer's site, but also third party single sign-on systems. At the same time, Bare.ID enables customers to obtain an overview of accesses, login failures, insecure or expired passwords or orphaned accounts for their internal compliance reports and then also to integrate these into their own security incident event monitoring. IT departments can thus be sustainably supported and relieved in the creation and administration of user accounts – while adhering to company-internal compliance guidelines. Thanks to preconfigured applications, users can use Bare.ID without any specialist knowledge; the technical complexity and the security-relevant configurations are not visible to the user. The fact that the proper handling of personal data and business-critical information is no longer a voluntary option is well known. Bare.ID stores all data in daily backups highly secure alternatively in two data centers located in Germany. "Our participation in the initiatives "IT Security – Made in Germany", "Software Hosted in Germany" as well as Cloud Services – Made in Germany" are proof of trustworthy security solutions from AOE. Bare.ID thus complies with strict German data protection laws," says Steffen Ritter, Commercial Director Cybersecurity at AOE GmbH.
