Marco Venuti

When it comes to identity management, B2B resides at the most complex end of the spectrum. That’s because there is no one-size-fits-all solution. We are not merely discussing the lifecycle management of a single type of identity, such as customers or employees. Instead, we are faced with the challenge of effectively managing an array of diverse identities, from partners to gig workers and many more, each vital to your business, and each with its unique lifecycle and engagement requirements.

Frequently asked questions

    B2B interactions require specific capabilities. B2E (Workforce) access management solutions or IGA solutions do not address these specific needs. Thales provides capabilities like Delegated User Management, Externalized Authorization, and Consent & Preference Management that are tailor-made for B2B use cases.

    Typical B2C CIAM solutions do not meet the needs of B2B interactions, leading to a lot of custom development to achieve desired outcomes. B2B interactions require a lot more granular relationship management due to multiple or nested relationships. Multiply that with the complexity of fine-grained authorization, and organizations are likely to spend significantly more time to build the right set of B2B capabilities. This can often lead to much longer project durations and significantly higher TCO.

    Yes, the Consent & Preference Management module takes into account the data privacy needs of external users. The Delegated User Management also relieves the burden from your IT teams and puts it on your partner or supplier’s shoulders, where it belongs. This ensures that third-party access privileges are better-managed.

    Yes. Thales OneWelcome Identity Platform is based on a very modular structure where individual apps (capabilities) can be purchased separately. Explore our OneWelcome modules.
