Your client has many accounts. Just think about it. DigiD, Facebook, eHerkenning, Google, Twitter, iDIN and LinkedIn. Maybe also Indensys, Microsoft, eIDAS or Surf. Plus the one of your website or digital application. And of course he wants to use the account he prefers. So, how do you connect all these accounts to your application?
The Connectis Identity Broker connects website and applications to one or more identity providers. This enables users to login using the identity provider they prefer and the credentials they own. This increases the satisfaction of your clients, strengthens your online conversion and reduces operating costs for customer on-boarding, service desk and compliance.

On 1 January, SIDN – the company behind all .nl domain names – acquired a majority stake in Connectis. Connectis is one of the Netherlands’ biggest suppliers of secure log-in solutions, processing millions of log-in transactions a year. The Connectis-SIDN link-up represents a big boost for the digital identities market.
It opens the way for Connectis to realise its growth ambitions and build towards a future of secure log-ins and reusable digital identities. The acquisition also means that SIDN immediately becomes an important player on the digital identities market. Connectis’s services dovetail neatly with SIDN’s ambition to make digital living easier and safer for everyone.
