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.
In addition, AOE's team of experts takes full care of setting up, supporting, maintaining and updating Bare.ID. Here, customers save time and costs for an elaborate build-up of their own resources for the complex administration of the software, and get a guaranteed complete identity management package that is available at all times. "As AOE, we offer our customers a professional identity management solution that is hosted via our German data centers, available at any time, and tailored precisely to the requirements of the respective company. Our IT experts take care of everything. This allows our customers to concentrate on their core business and save time and money for an in-house IT department. So to speak, they are on the safe side without any worries," summarizes Steffen Ritter.
