KuppingerCole Recognizes Gigya as Only Overall Leader in Customer Identity Management

We’re pleased to announce that, after a lengthy evaluation process, global security and data protection research firm KuppingerCole has recognized Gigya as the Overall Leader in the Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM) market!

In KuppingerCole’s new report – “Leadership Compass – CIAM Platforms” – twelve CIAM vendors are rated in four categories: Overall Leadership, Product Leadership, Market Leadership, and Innovation Leadership. Not only is Gigya the one company to be named an Overall Leader, but also the only one to be named a Leader in all four categories.
The report lays out yet another strong case that in today’s always-on, connected world, businesses should use a specialized provider such as Gigya to manage customer data, as opposed to relying on home-grown or traditional employee-facing IAM solutions.

According to Martin Kuppinger, the founder and principal analyst of KuppingerCole, “Gigya’s focus on consumer experience and integrating identity into marketing tools provides a powerful platform for not only managing customer identities, but also for creating usable intelligence to better serve those customers – making them an overall leader in CIAM.”
