Auth0 is a popular cloud-based identity and access management (IAM) solution that allows organizations to manage user authentication and authorization services. Auth0 provides a range of tools and features that make it easier for developers to implement security measures without compromising user experience.
Picture this; your organization has a single sign-on for internal systems. Even better, customers with multiple websites can use Auth0 to give a user one sign-on for every site. Internally, your company can wire almost every productivity tool to Auth0 to make it easy to sign on and use company productivity tools.
In this article, we will continue to explore the features of Auth0 and answer some common questions about Auth0 pricing and usage.
Auth0 provides a range of adaptable authentication features to help organizations manage their user authentication and authorization. Some of these features and tools for identity management include:
Multi-factor authentication (MFA)
This feature provides an extra layer of security by requiring users to provide additional authentication factors, such as a code generated by a mobile app, in addition to their username and password.
Single sign-on (SSO)
This feature allows users to log in to multiple applications and services with a single set of credentials, simplifying the user experience and reducing the need for multiple passwords.
This feature allows users to authenticate with their preferred social login credentials, allowing for a seamless and quick authentication process.
The Auth0 three-step user-facing security process allows your organization to get ahead of breaches.
The system first alerts admin users when login credentials are detected in any known third-party breaches.
Breached accounts are blocked until users add MFA and change their passwords, improving overall security.
The style and content of any breach warning email that gets sent to your users is customizable to grab attention.
The authorization platform integrates with a range of third-party applications and services. The platform also makes coding new integrations simple for your dev team.
The identity management platform offers several pricing plans to suit different organization sizes and requirements. These plans include:
- Free: The free plan provides up to 7,000 active users and unlimited logins. This plan is suitable for small organizations or those that do not require many features.
- Essential: The developer plan costs $23 per month and provides up to 10,000 active users and unlimited social connections. This plan is suitable for organizations that are developing more simple applications and services.
- Professional: The developer pro plan costs $240 per month and provides up to 10,000 active users and unlimited social connections. This plan is suitable for organizations that are developing applications and services that require additional security features.
- Enterprise: The enterprise plan is tailored to the specific requirements of each organization and includes features such as unlimited active users and no admin or rule limits. Pricing for this plan is available upon request.
There is plenty of room for customization and alterations when selecting a pricing plan. If you’re unsure which plan is the right fit for your organization, consider reaching out to experts for advice.
