Access mechanisms with password, passwordless access with link or biometrics, single sign-on (enterprise or social logins) or multi-factor authentication are just some of the available services. Engity has significant and relevant USPs compared to mostly American competitors, such as GDPR compliance, automatic verification of hacked passwords, strong password check, login procedure without e-mail account, etc. Engity shows some of the many possibilities for future-oriented user management on its product page.
After all, the need for companies to implement legally compliant European solutions has been growing ever greater since the European Court of Justice issued a ruling regarding data transfers to the US ("Schrems II"). The reason for this is that the use of US cloud third-party providers for IAM and CIAM requires a data transfer outside of the EU. While there is currently a data transfer mechanism in place (the Transatlantic Data Protection Framework), this tool is being challenged in court and may suffer the same fate as the two previous transfer mechanisms that were both invalidated. However, digital infrastructure should be designed to be future-proof. Companies risk being held liable by competitors and regulatory authorities, as well as losing reputation vis-à-vis their customers.
