Identity
& Access
server

Users identities are now at the core of your business. Vennetics Identity and Access Server is an identity repository built to manage all types of cross-channel customer identity data, automatically maintaining privacy compliance and stores user records securely.

The data that can be most useful for network operators to improve their business, can typically exist within a number of different silos, which are resident across various network functions. The Vennetics IAS platform provides a single unified method of identifying the subscriber data within each of those silos, incorporating a design that is fully configurable and extensible for adding new integration points.

Using the Vennetics IAS, all applications that access subscriber information can be implemented with a unified and standardised mechanism of obtaining this data access. Network operators can then retain a single access management point for establishing the commensurate security rules and permissions. The information is presented in a personalised and standardised format to both the owners of each network function and the overall business management representatives.
