Identity platform Auth0 has announced it has doubled its EMEA business in Q3 2020 compared to the same period last year. Key to its success has been the raft of new customers including Randstad, Pret A Manger, Nutmeg, Flo Health, Libération, WeTransfer, and DPG Media.

The company continues to scale its regional footprint to accompany increases in customer demand, increasing regional headcount to 139 in the third quarter, up more than 50% from the same period last year. Additionally, channel partners are contributing to the adoption of the Auth0 platform in the EMEA region. Auth0 has concluded agreements with new partners across EMEA, including CMS Distribution in the UK and systems integrator Devoteam in France, who have joined 30 regional partners already offering the Auth0 platform.

The company claims its growth benefits from the success of its modular, “building block” approach, which helps customers and developers to customise identity capabilities for their exact use case. The September launch of Auth0 Marketplace provides further extensibility by introducing native third-party solutions from technology partners including regional companies like Onfido, MyLife Digital, and Scaled Access.

“Our seamless transition in and out of remote working scenarios has helped keep our focus on serving our customers this year,” observed Steven Rees-Pullman, SVP International, Auth0. “As we continue to evolve our offering and our organisation to reflect demand, we aim to become a trusted local partner for each and every one of our customers across the region.”

Koen Klaassen, global identity and access management program lead at Randstad said “Randstad has been progressively rolling out the Auth0 solution for identity management, designed to foster collaboration among our 41,000 team members around the world. The Auth0 private cloud solution fits our needs in terms of compliance and scalability, delivering the right level of performance and control.”

In October, the prestigious KuppingerCole KCLive Award for Customer Authentication was presented to Auth0’s customer Signify for outstanding customer experience. Auth0 has also been named to the 2020 Forbes Cloud 100 for the third consecutive year.
