E.ON’s seamless transition to modern identity management with the Curity Identity Server

E.ON is a leading international energy company headquartered in Essen, Germany. Established in 2000, E.ON is dedicated to delivering innovative energy solutions and operating one of Europe's largest energy networks. E.ON’s extensive infrastructure supports approximately 48 million customers in multiple countries, ensuring reliable and sustainable energy solutions.

Business Objectives and Challenges

E.ON Sverige, a Swedish subsidiary of E.ON, sought to modernize its infrastructure by building a new identity and access management platform.

Among the main requirements were:

  • Broad integration capacity
  • Conformance to legal requirements
  • Smooth user experience

The primary goal was to bring their customer solutions to market faster while ensuring agility and flexibility. The existing legacy system presented significant challenges due to its inflexibility and outdated architecture. E.ON needed a solution that could seamlessly merge the old legacy systems with the new integration platform without imposing many limitations.

Selection Process

To address their needs, E.ON evaluated various identity providers and found that Curity was a perfect fit for their requirements. Moreover, the product showed compatibility with their infrastructure and the development team appreciated the vision behind the product, i.e. the concept of neo-security with its separation of concerns.

Deployment

The deployment process was efficient and well-managed. Curity was integrated into E.ON's environment, allowing them to satisfy a wide range of identity and access management needs. One of the significant benefits of the deployment was the ability to create separate profiles for external partners, enabling them to access necessary resources without time-consuming onboarding processes. Additionally, the deployment process was streamlined, allowing configuration changes to be made quickly and efficiently.

Curity has filtered E.ON's environment pretty well so far by being as flexible as you need an identity provider to be with all the legal requirements and data handling.

Results

Implementing the Curity Identity Server has enabled E.ON to achieve several key objectives:

  • Improved User Experience: The platform ensures that E.ON's applications remain user-friendly, with users never having to log in repeatedly. This persistent session management was crucial for maintaining a positive user experience.
  • Flexibility and Customization: Curity's flexibility has allowed E.ON to develop custom authentication flows and support various business requirements. This adaptability is essential for addressing new needs as they arise.
  • Future-Proofing: With continuous development and updates, Curity has proven to be a robust solution that can adapt to new requirements and technological advancements.

The E.ON developers also appreciate technical support from Curity’s Professional Services team and the many learning resources available on the Curity website.

Overall, the implementation of the Curity Identity Server has significantly improved E.ON's operational efficiency, user experience, and ability to integrate new technologies. The platform continues to evolve, ensuring that E.ON remains at the forefront of innovation in the energy sector.
