New business opportunities and a general need for modernization of the IT environment brings many interesting challenges for the organization. One key challenge is the traffic patterns and demand on ATG’s platforms. They experience many concurrent users, high and bursty transaction intensity. This coupled with strict requirements on performance, reliability, security and availability means that the IT architecture is critical for success.
The Curity Identity Server was selected as a major part of a modernized identity and access management (IAM) infrastructure where:
- The Curity identity server provide easy to use identity and authentication management of microservices and digital services
- The transition from a monolith architecture to microservices architecture has become possible, allowing for increased scalability.
- The Curity implementation give a standardized IAM platform that allow further addition in a simple way.
The new modern IAM system has paved the way for a microservice design, that in its modern containerized deployment allow for elastic scaling of capacity, based on demand in a secure, flexible and modern way. With the new solution, ATG is also fulfilling the license regulation and provides a smooth registration and login experience for its over one million customers.
The Curity product provides us with the business-critical services for authentication and security for our customers. The platform is a cornerstone in ATG’s target architecture for Microservices.
