Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM) vs Identity and Access Management (IAM)
Both Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM) and IAM (Identity and Access Management) are about people who are users of your system: who can access what, how do they prove who they are, and how you manage access over time. Though there are similarities between CIAM and IAM, at their heart they serve different needs.
Let’s take a look at these two identity management archetypes and see how they differ.READ MORE
Supercharge Development with FusionAuth
Businesses have begun to acknowledge that the physical health of developers is an asset. As a result, many workstations now come equipped with furniture and devices designed to encourage natural posture, reduce exertion, and function within optimal reach zones. Such tools boost productivity by helping eliminate employee absences caused by repetitive strain injuries.
But employers often overlook the mental strain developers can experience from repetitive and complex coding tasks. Fortunately, the team at FusionAuth is working to reduce such pain points in the massively complex customer identity access management (CIAM) space.READ MORE

User Data Security is a Breach
If you follow us on Twitter (if you don’t, you can fix that now) you’ll see that we post about data security breaches hitting the internet community. We don’t do it to be malicious or gloat about their failures, but to increase awareness beyond the core community of security professionals. We deal with security every day so we know that keeping data secure is a complex challenge. Few people are well-versed in its many facets and subtleties, and it can be difficult to stay informed of the current trends and risks. We hear all the time “See? You can’t stop cyber breaches.” Fortunately, that’s a load of crap.READ MORE
Is FusionAuth GDPR Compliant?
It’s been about a year since the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) became fully enforceable. Are you compliant yet? We started making FusionAuth GDPR compliant as soon as the regulation was adopted, although to be honest, there wasn’t a lot we needed to do. We fully agree with these regulations and feel they provide effective guidelines that any application should follow with their users’ personal data. If you are trying to catch up with the GDPR news, read our Developer’s Guide to the GDPR here and you’ll have a good idea of what you should be aware of. Our developers have been working with these concepts for years now, so it was exciting to see our caution around user data validated.READ MORE
