Janrain Expands its Global Data Center Footprint to Support Growth

Expansion Comes as Janrain Identity Solutions Continue to Gain Worldwide Traction

PORTLAND, OR (January 18, 2017) – Janrain®, the company that created the Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM) category, today announced it has expanded its global data center footprint to 41 availability zones in 12 regions across the globe to support continued growth of Janrain identity solutions. Janrain now has locations in Canada, Germany, India, Japan, Korea, Russia and Singapore, adding to its existing locations in Australia, Brazil, China, Ireland and the United States.

Janrain is the only CIAM provider deployed in over 65 countries. With its longstanding investment in Amazon Web Services (AWS), the company can immediately launch new data centers as soon as Amazon makes new service regions available.

“We’ve had a long history of ‘firsts’ related to managing cloud identities across the globe,“ said Jamie Beckland, Vice President of Product. “We were the first CIAM provider to achieve Safe Harbor certification in 2009, first to launch a European Union (EU) data center in 2013, first to manage Chinese citizen profiles behind the Great Firewall in 2015, and first to achieve Privacy Shield certification in 2016. Now in 2017, we are proud to have the largest data center footprint of any identity solution.”

With Janrain’s comprehensive global footprint, multinational corporations can:

  • Get options for managing customer profile data using geographically dispersed data centers that are customizable and easy to deploy
  • Make each data center deployment available within weeks instead of years
  • Meet regional privacy and security compliance standards by leveraging local security and privacy certifications and service level agreements
  • Increase the economy of scale with the deployment of flexible, repeatable and rapidly scalable geographically distributed data centers

Janrain’s global data center footprint is uniquely set up to meet the needs of:

  • Chief Technology Officers concerned with latency and other performance issues
  • Legal and privacy teams who are tasked with ensuring strict compliance with all data protection, privacy localization and other laws as they change, region by region
  • Chief Information Security Officers needing to ensure business continuity regardless of foreign relation and political climate issues between nations
