About Identity Automation

Our mission is to make it easy for organizations to scale, embrace security, and limit risks.

Our Story

Founded in 2004 as a consulting firm, Identity Automation has focused on intelligently automating provisioning, access, and account management from the start. Working with customers in a consulting capacity, co-founders James Litton and Troy Moreland saw the limitations of legacy identity management systems firsthand. Long delays, complicated customization, product capability gaps—there had to be a better way.

So, in 2009, Identity Automation began designing a single, unified Identity and Access Management (IAM) platform, built from the ground up to handle the challenges of today’s digitally connected organization. From the get-go, RapidIdentity was designed to be intuitive, easy to install, and easier to use—for everybody—not just advanced IT technicians.

We’ve never stopped improving, making our solutions even more powerful and seamless for organizations of all types and sizes. Today, RapidIdentity is the most powerful and complete IAM platform available, managing millions of identities for more than 675 organizations worldwide. RapidIdentity addresses not only web single sign-on needs, but also fully automated lifecycle management and provisioning for ALL users, integrated privileged access management, delegated identity administration, password management, comprehensive multi-factor authentication, and more.
