Common Services

One Platform to Rule Them All

We believe in a developer-friendly fellowship underpinning everything we do. Our identity services are shared across the entire platform to eliminate typical inefficiencies: no more hours spent reconciling multiple APIs, UIs, files, documentation, elves and squirrels, what have you.

The platform was designed from the ground up for realistic, human-grade scale. You have billions of identities? We have massive scale, session-failover, and high availability to match. All that’s left to consider is what to do with the time that is given to you.

Dust off that PC . . . and that authentication?

This past weekend, my buddies in Europe organized a night of online gaming. It had been over a year since I last played with them. Did I stop to worry about authentication? Heck no. I fired up my dusty PC and launched a leading distribution platform for PC gaming.
