iSHARE makes it easier, safer and cheaper to provide access to your platform
What is the key to the success of your platform? That’s right: the quality of your relationships with customers and partners. It is crucial to offer them positive user experiences and ease of access to your platform. Benefit from the strength of iSHARE: this standardized Scheme for identification, authentication and authorization will help you to attract more customers and makes it easier for them to utilize your online services. Furthermore it guarantees the trustworthiness of existing and new partners, plus it reduces the onboarding costs for your company.
What are the challenges?
- You have to set up a separate data-sharing connection with each of your customers and partners. An individual software integration is time-consuming and costly.
- As the number of connections increases, so too does the complexity. This makes it more difficult for you to maintain oversight. Besides that, the onboarding costs rise.
- You face continuous concerns about the trustworthiness of new partners who are looking to come on board. The central question is: to what extent can a previously unknown partner be trusted, and are their systems sufficiently secure?
iSHARE is a uniform set of agreements about how partners identify, authenticate and authorize one another. By joining iSHARE, you can start sharing data in a secure and controlled way with other Participants in the Scheme. The benefits are clear: time-consuming and costly software integrations are no longer necessary – and that includes integrations with new and previously unknown partners. Needless to say, you can also share data with them in an easy, secure and controlled way.
How does iSHARE work?
The technical agreements in iSHARE are based on an API architecture designed to enable iSHARE Participants to request and receive data in a uniform manner. The iSHARE data traffic comprises authentication information. Your own platform uses iSHARE to verify that participating partners really are who they claim to be, and that those partners uphold the agreements.
In addition to technical agreements, iSHARE also contains legal agreements about data-sharing. You have full control over your own data at all times. How? You manage the access rights yourself; you predefine which partners are allowed to receive which data, what they are allowed to do with it and for which period of time.

- You retain full control over which information is shared when and with whom
