Ultimately, it’s about sidestepping the arduous process of having to integrate with multiple identity providers — Auth0 promises to take care of it all.

The platform also offers features such as Rules, customizable code that allows developers and companies to stipulate exactly how people access a specific online system. For example, an enterprise may restrict logins to people who live in a certain region, or limit access to weekdays.
