Apigee Identity APIx: Empowering Mobile Authentication
We're proud to unveil Apigee Identity APIx, an API-based solution that empowers mobile network operators using the GSMA Mobile Connect solution to deliver and manage secure and universal authentication across a range of services and devices.
GSMA Mobile Connect provides mobile network operators a convenient and secure universal authentication solution. With Mobile Connect, subscribers can securely log in to applications and websites using their mobile phones instead of re-keying personal information.
The Apigee Identity APIx solution is offered as part of the GSMA Mobile Connect Accelerator (MCX) program. As an MCX partner, Apigee offers operators the Apigee Identity APIx as a cloud service in order to enable them to rapidly deploy Mobile Connect to increase scale more quickly and enable global interoperability.
Apigee Identity APIx adds to Apigee’s services for the telecommunications industry, which include the API Exchange, a technology platform delivered to service providers in order to offer identity federation for cross-operator reach.
The API Exchange is the GSMA’s recommended federation mechanism for Mobile Connect, enabling global discoverability so that subscribers of a mobile network operator offering Mobile Connect can log in to applications from other operators. Apigee launched the API Exchange in 2013 as the first API federation platform designed to power app ecosystems in any industry. Today more than 20 local mobile operators from across the globe are participating in the API Exchange.
