Auth0 provides authentication and authorisation portals across web, mobile and legacy applications. Cybersecurity features, meanwhile, include the likes of multifactor authentication and user management.
In a press release, Cognizant was said to now be offering Auth0 as its primary authentication provider when assisting customers with digital transformation.

Auth0 touts its ability to easily integrate into custom-built applications, consequently saying it secures over 100 million logins every day. Customers of the Bellevue, Washington based firm include the likes of Atlassian, AMD Schneider Electric and Nvidia. It’s an approach that has seen it raise over $210mn of funding, with the latest Series E round, led by Sapphire Ventures, constituting $103mn of that total.
