About PlainID

IAM consists of 3 main components: Identity, Authentication, and Authorization, with Authorization being "The Last Mile" of IAM. Many have an IGA Solution.  Many have an Authentication Solution.  Companies finally have the option of having an Authorization Solution. Welcome to PlainID, The Authorization Company.

what we do

PlainID recognizes the frustrations of businesses struggling to figure out and scale up with IAM.
We were frustrated, too! That’s why we founded PlainID in 2014. Rather than making only incremental changes, we upended the technology itself and simplified authorization.

Our solution reduces AuthZ to one point of decision, one point of control and one point of view. The rapid demands of business require a clear path to the tools and apps that enable growth. We don’t put up roadblocks; our solution is not messy or hard to understand.

PlainID makes it simple. It enables rapid business growth. It has a dynamic rule engine to “calculate” authorizations based on time, place, event and other attributes. It clearly visualizes the connections between people, devices and services and all those authorizations.

No rocket science required here. It really is PlainID.
