What is Digital Identity?

A digital identity is the body of information about an individual, organization, or electronic device that exists online. It includes all the unique identifiers and uses patterns that enable the detection of individuals or their devices.

Why is Digital Identity Important?

Digital identities and management are crucial for your business growth and expansion. Historically, identity management has often concentrated on an enterprise's internal users such as staff, contractors or others inside the supply chain. It was about ensuring that these users had the right access levels required to perform their jobs.

However, in this age of digital transformation, the ability to grasp and leverage the influence of external digital identity is crucial to effectively scale businesses. Businesses are now relying heavily on external, user-centric identity systems that provide the infrastructure for the multi-channel creation of robust customer profiles.
