PayEx established a secure and flexible IAM system allowing for easier customer integrations

Founded in 1972, PayEx are the Nordic region's foremost experts in invoicing, financing and payment services, employing approximately 750 people.

As a wholly owned subsidiary of Swedbank, PayEx Group consists of two business units – PayEx Ledger & Factoring and Swedbank Pay. PayEx Ledger & Factoring is helping customers on a daily basis with all types of services within rating and billing, invoicing and ledger management, collection of debts, credit management and financing. Swedbank Pay offers complete payment solutions for stores and e-commerce.

Business Objectives

With their old identity management provider reaching end-of-life, PayEx needed a modern identity server platform to handle identity and authentication.

They considered a lot of different options, including developing a solution in-house, but decided not to go down that route as they wanted to keep the focus on their core business. When it was time to choose a new identity and access management provider, PayEx had a clear picture of the must-have criteria. They were looking for a solution that was:

  • Standards-based
  • Flexible
  • Highly customizable

Evaluating both SaaS and on-prem solutions, PayEx realized that a solution offering better control of where the data was stored was critical to ensure the safety and protection of their clients’ data.

Solution

The Curity Identity Server met all of these requirements. Being based on modern, established security standards, the Curity Identity Server has allowed PayEx to adopt OAuth and OpenID Connect in their operations and created more opportunities for successful integration with legacy systems.

Another aspect that was appreciated by PayEx was the speed at which the Curity team prepared everything and got them ready for testing and deployment.

We were impressed by the Curity team's technical expertise. Implementing standards such as OpenID Connect can be very complex but with Curity's help and the out-of-the-box features of the Server it was a lot easier.

The flexibility and customization abilities in the Curity Identity Server made it easier for PayEx to deliver a seamless login experience for users, whilst maintaining high security.

Results

With many systems in different domains and multiple users interacting with PayEx interfaces every day, the company found a valuable asset in the Curity Identity Server. It is being used in multiple scenarios, ensuring secure and frictionless login with no downtime. PayEx has now established a secure and flexible IAM system that allows for easier customer integrations, secure authentication for multiple users and efficient identity management.

PayEx is impressed by the support the Curity team has provided and how their feedback has been considered, allowing them to plan for further development of their IAM architecture.

There is a lot of complexity around OAuth and OpenID Connect, but Curity makes it easier to understand.
