Gluu provides IT services to large organizations to help them design, build, and operate authentication and authorization (“AA”) systems to secure web and mobile applications using open source software. Gluu leverages open standards such as OAuth 2.0, SAML, and RADIUS to enable organizational strong authentication, single sign-on (SSO), and web access management (WAM). The “OX” open source project, maintained by Gluu, implements two profiles of Oauth2: OpenID Connect for authentication and UMA for authorization. Gluu’s OX management service enables organizations to quickly deploy an AA service for their Internet domain, on the IAAS platform of their choice.

Gluu’s dedicated server delivery model allows security conscious organizations to centrally manage authorization and authentication using their own servers, from inside their own network. This mitigates a number of security concerns associated with multi-tenant identity solutions. In addition, because all the software is open source, there are no per user licensing fees, which makes the total cost of ownership markedly less than proprietary monolithic IAM offerings by companies like Oracle, IBM and CA.
