Janrain launches centralized data access control
The new Advanced Policy Manager provides what the company calls 'the first standardization of access control across sites and apps'.
Janrain makes its living by offering social sign-ons, so that members of Facebook, Twitter and other social networks can quickly employ the same log-ons for the sites and apps of about 2,100 brands.
In June, the company added a centralized way of managing user consent, called Consent Lifecycle Management. It offered one of the first ready-to-employ solutions to the upcoming user consent requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which goes into effect in May.
Now, the Portland, Oregon-based firm has released its Advanced Policy Manager (APM), developed with data access and governance provider Symphonic Software.
It allows brands to control access to data from one centralized cloud-based location. Janrain Director of Product Marketing Sven Dummer told me that his company is the first “to offer a complete cloud-based standardization of access control across all apps and sites.” He noted that it works with other sign-on solutions, in addition to Janrain’s.
