PORTLAND, Ore. —  October 18, 2021 —Next Reason, a Portland-based technology company, has today announced the launch of Next Identity, a customer identity access management (CIAM) platform designed for multinational enterprises.

Consumers expect their login experience to be private, secure, and effortless; especially from the global brands they know and trust. Managing the authentication, authorization, and governance of these experiences across channels and applications is complex.

Next Identity is an integration layer supporting interoperability, security, and scalability between CIAM vendors and customer applications. The quick-to-deploy, highly configurable identity-as-a-service platform allows enterprises to govern and scale consumer identity as needs and regulations evolve.

“Global enterprises bring a different level of complexity to customer identity management. They manage millions of identities, across disparate integrations and systems, with a variety of localization, regulatory and privacy requirements, and the need for high service and security standards,” said Nate Syztel, CEO of Next Reason. “The strength of Next Reason’s managed services, paired with the Next Identity platform offers a holistic approach to identity and the shortest path to value realization.”

Enterprises use Next Identity to improve customer onboarding and digital experiences, govern and secure customer data, comply with data privacy regulations and ultimately, achieve operational excellence.
