CMS Distribution Expands Cybersecurity Portfolio with Identity Management from Auth0 CMS Distribution partners can now offer Identity-as-a-Service to help customers launch digital applications and services faster


LONDON – 2 November 2020 CMS Distribution today announced it has signed a distribution deal with Auth0, the identity platform for application teams. The partnership expands CMS Distribution’s cybersecurity portfolio with its first identity management solution for partners and strengthens Auth0’s presence in the UK and Ireland. Auth0 provides a platform to authenticate, authorise, and secure access for applications, devices, and users. Designed as a SaaS component that is easy to integrate and customise, the Auth0 platform facilitates more than 4.5 billion login transactions per month. Auth0 has been named in the 2020 Forbes Cloud 100 as a top private cloud company for the third consecutive year and recently launched Auth0 Marketplace to make it even easier for partners to provide holistic identity solutions to their customers. A recent study of development teams found 83% of applications require authentication as businesses move their operations online and customers demand more personalised experiences. Auth0 capabilities including Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM) help organisations balance seemingly contradictory requirements for security, convenience, and privacy. The addition of Auth0 to CMS Distributions’ cybersecurity portfolio means partners can have new conversations with their customers and help them bring revenue-generating apps and services to market faster. “Auth0 is a natural addition to our portfolio for channel partners assisting customers with digital transformation, replatforming, and product launches,” said Huw Jones, Chief Business Officer at CMS Distribution. “As the demand for Identity-as-a-Service continues to grow at an exceptional rate, we are delighted to join forces with Auth0 to deliver growth opportunities to our partner ecosystem across the UK and Ireland.” “Identity tends to be at the heart of digital projects and managed by teams partners traditionally haven’t spoken to, like engineering and marketing,” said Pete Wilson, EMEA partner manager at Auth0. “CMS Distribution partners can use our identity management solution to help drive down the cost of compliance and have a direct impact on user acquisition and conversion for their customers.”
