LoginRadius, a provider of access management solutions, has announced a tool designed to help its customers understand their application’s identity management performance. The new LoginRadius Authentication API Analytics tool provides insight on request count, response code, and response time.
Identity management platform provider Okta has acquired Stormpath, a user management API provider. Now developers using Stormpath APIs and SDKs have until 8/17/2017 to migrate to Okta or another identity management platform. The acquisition of Stormpath demonstrates the risk of using startup APIs.
Curity.io CEO and co-founder Travis Spencer explains why he thinks its a better idea to rely on a dedicated appliance to handle identity management for API access. The approach to API identity management is modeled after the design of routers that do only a few things but do them really really well.
