Layer 7 Identity Management Products Overview

Provide Seamless, Secure Access to API-Based Resources


Layer 7s Identity Management products simplify the process of applying industry-standard identity and access management (IAM) technologies to apps and services that use APIs to access backend enterprise IT systems. Layer 7's products make it simple to use key standards like OAuth and SAML to implement API access control, Single Sign-On (SSO) and social login.

Layer 7 simplifies implementation of key IAM technologies, which will prove crucial to the success of any enterprise API program by making it possible to:

  • Prevent unauthorized individuals from accessing sensitive backend IT assets
  • Provide authorized users with seamless access to valuable data and functionality
