Move authentication to the edge

Move user identification at the edge to reduce complexity and deal with heterogeneous internal identity structures. Manage authentication tokens and perform attribute-based authorization without cumbersome middleware.

Move authentication to the edge


The right abstraction for identity.

Edge Authentication enables you to migrate your authentication logic in a dedicated scriptable service deployed at the edge of your perimeter. Simplify your identity backend and free your developers from authentication and token logic.

The right abstraction for identity.
  • Remove Authentication Middleware /

    Avoid custom internal logic, verify identity at the edge and free your service-owners from the burden of owning authentication.

  • Decrease Latency /

    Increase performance and resilience by caching tokens at the edge. Enable faster response time with multi-region deployments.

  • Virtual directory to handle legacy identity stores /

    Avoid long and complex migrations by supporting existing identity stores out of the box.

  • Faster Time to Market /

    Add authentication to any service without any coding or configuration.
