Dutch SaaS companies Onegini and iWelcome have announced that the companies have merged into OneWelcome.

The combination blends into the largest European vendor of Customer Identity & Access Management (CIAM) SaaS. The merger expedites the combined vision of making digital business for all European enterprises simple and safe.

OneWelcome protects tens of millions of European digital identities for flag-ship customers like Aegon, Admiral Insurance, Baloise, Malakoff Humanis, PostNL, Dutch Railways and the European Central Bank.

Danny de Vreeze, CEO of OneWelcome: “We share an identity vision that is centered around connecting and protecting people, businesses, things and IT. Combining Onegini’s state-of-the-art mobile authentication platform and core identity capabilities with iWelcome’s leading consent management and B2B delegation management functionality creates the richest platform in the market. We anchor into our product our in-depth understanding of the European identity challenges, like GDPR, eID’s and Bring-your-own-identity. Therefor OneWelcome is the most compelling CIAM & B2B offering available today for European enterprises.”

Catering for an outstanding omnichannel and frictionless (digital) customer experience is key for online services, no matter whether customers use web or mobile technology. Privacy protection and implementing the highest security standards have defined proper stewardship.

Who the user is, what the user is allowed to do, enabling the user to opt-in or out defines the relationship and its governance. Identity management therefor is fundamental to any online interaction.

Jeroen Starrenburg, COO of OneWelcome said: “Balancing ease-of-use with safety in the customer journey is an art in itself. In the acquisition stage of the customer life cycle, aspects of Identity Proofing, Know Your Customer (KYC), Fraud Detection and Consent Management have to be applied, while the flow should remain intuitive. Orchestrating this, makes the purchase of an identity platform one of the most logical decisions for any modern enterprise.”
