Key Features


Smartphone-like UI

Compact Identity takes your user-experience to the next level. We have found that customers want a friendlier way to access SSO shortcuts.

To enhance your experience, we have introduced a launchpad. It is a standalone and native application that can be used to single sign-on to onboarded apps and perform other operations such as managing passwords, updating challenge response questions, requesting new access and approving access requests.

The design is based on a smartphone-like UI that is intuitive and provides a familiar experience. Accessed with a single click from the quick launch bar, it is available as soon as you log in to your machine to join the domain.

If authentication is delegated to Active Directory®, users do not need to login to Compact Identity after signing in to a machine that has joined the domain and can access all their apps directly from the launchpad with a single click.


Built-in Identity Store

Compact Identity has a built-in identity store based on a non-relational database. It acts as the central directory of all users and roles created in in the solution or in any other source. This allows it to be scalable. It also allows organizations to access all functionalities of Compact Identity even if they are not using Active Directory®.

Users may be added to the identity store manually by the admin by importing them from a CSV file or from Active Directory®.

App Store

Compact Identity sports an App Store that offers OOB connectors to commonly used apps. Admins can quickly set up the following features for apps:

  1. Single sign-on
  2. Password synchronization
  3. User Lifecycle Management: provisioning and de-Provisioning of accounts.
  4. Prioritization of apps

Onboarding an app is a matter of a few clicks. Most commonly used apps are already onboarded. New apps are continually added.

We upload any new, custom or in-house apps to the App Store upon request


The app store is available on the internet and can be used to onboard apps to Compact Identity directly. They will be fetched at the time of onboarding. If connectivity to the app store can’t be maintained due to security policies, apps may be downloaded as an archive and imported into Compact Identity.

Similar user-experience across devices

Compact Identity boasts a consistent user-experience across devices.



Entry and app level Multi-factor Authentication

Compact Identity offers strong authentication with a variety of OOB multi-factor authentication mechanisms such as Challenge-Response, Email OTPs and SMS OTP.

It provides multi-factor authentication (MFA) when users access it through the launchpad or through our mobile app, single sign-on to an app or initiate a password reset or an account unlock.

Biometric authentication (fingerprint), pattern and PIN authentication through a mobile app will be coming soon.

Dashboard and Reporting

Compact Identity provides an intuitive dashboard to view common events such as:

  1. Number of user logins (via the launchpad and via the mobile app) on a daily, weekly and/or monthly basis
  2. Widely accessed apps for SSO as a pie chart (daily, weekly and/or monthly basis)

Compact Identity also provides a variety of pre-configured reports to assist you during audits and for statutory and regulatory compliances. These reports can be downloaded in PDF or XLS formats.

  • End-user login report (launchpad and mobile app)
  • End-user single sign-on report (launchpad and mobile app)
  • End-user change Active Directory® password
  • End-user reset Active Directory® password
  • End-user unlock Active Directory® account
  • End-user who did not login to Compact Identity
  • Administrator login report
  • Orphan account report
  • Who Has Access to What report



Mobile Support

Compact Identity ships with a mobile app that enables you to perform various activities.

  1. SSO to browser-based apps
  2. Change your password
  3. Password reset and account-unlock
  4. Password Synchronization
  5. Update Challenge Response answers
  6. Access Request – Roles and Applications
  7. View status of Access Requests
  8. Approve Access Request

OOB Integration with Microsoft® Active Directory®

Compact Identity comes with an in-built connector for Microsoft® Active Directory®.
This enables you to easily onboard people and manage the users and groups of Active Directory® from within the solution.

Different modules connect with Active Directory® to perform different actions. For example, the SSO module can connect to Active Directory® for authentication and authorization. The lifecycle management module can connect with Active Directory® for provisioning, password reset or to import users.

Delegated Authentication to Active Directory®

In addition to authentication against an identity store, Compact Identity also supports user authentication against Microsoft® Active Directory®. You can access the solution by entering your Active Directory® credentials. In the case that ‘auto-login’ is enabled, you can directly access the solution without having to enter any credentials if you are connected to a machine that has joined the domain.

Support for custom user attributes

User identity in Compact Identity is defined by collection of multiple attributes that caters to the needs of most organizations.

However, our experience in IAM implementations has shown that the need to add more attributes for a user identity is inevitable. Traditional IAM products have a tedious and technical approach to add a new attribute for a user. With Compact Identity, adding a new or custom attribute is just a matter of a click.



Support for multiple Active Directory® server domains

Compact Identity allows multiple Active Directory® server domains to be configured within the same tenant instance of the solution. This enables admins to configure the features required for different domains to those domains.

Nifty Installer

Implementation time is one of the most expensive factors associated with the purchase of any enterprise solution. Compact Identity comes with a nifty installer that deploys all the necessary elements for running the solution in your environment. What used to take more than one week can now be finished in one afternoon. This enables you to go live earlier and save on implementation costs.
