LOS ALTOS, Calif., June 04, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Descope, the drag-and-drop CIAM platform, today announced its expansion into the Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) market. This expansion is accompanied by a suite of capabilities tailored to meet the specific needs of organizations in this diverse region, notable among them being multi-region data residency, AI-powered localization of user-facing screens, and right-to-left language support.

Descope helps organizations add authentication, authorization, and identity management to their apps using customizable visual workflows. Hundreds of customers and thousands of developers use Descope to improve user onboarding with frictionless authentication, enhance security with adaptive MFA, and get enterprise-ready with SSO and delegated user administration.

“We are excited to help organizations in EMEA deliver delightful and secure customer journeys without overburdening their engineering and IT teams,” said Dan Sarel, Co-Founder of Descope. “The newly added capabilities are based on the feedback of several of our existing EMEA customers and reflect our commitment to supporting the diverse and dynamic needs of businesses in this region. We look forward to meeting customers, integrators, and partners to continue strengthening our presence in the region.”

Key Capabilities for the EMEA Market

  • Multi-Region Data Residency: To comply with GDPR and other local data protection regulations, Descope enables organizations to store and process user data within the European Union. A dedicated Frankfurt datacenter ensures that data residency and sovereignty requirements are met, offering peace of mind to businesses and their customers. In addition, organizations with customers across the globe can now decide where user data of each of their customers will be stored.
  • Localization of User-Facing Screens: Leveraging AI connectors with Google Cloud Translation and Amazon Translate, Descope helps organizations seamlessly localize user-facing screens. This functionality supports several languages and auto-translates any user-facing screen created with Descope based on the end user’s browser settings.
  • Right-to-Left (RTL) Text Support: Recognizing the linguistic diversity in the EMEA region, Descope offers robust support for RTL languages such as Hebrew and Arabic in its screen builder. This feature ensures that user interfaces are accessible and user-friendly for all customers, regardless of language preference.
