Consulting firm YLD has partnered with IT services firm Auth0. The pair recently worked together to help a number of joint customers succeed in their digital business strategies.

Auth0 provides thousands of enterprise customers with Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) support. With a Universal Identity Platform for their web, mobile, IoT, and internal applications, the firm seamlessly authenticates and secures more than 2.5 billion logins per month, significantly boosting the usability and security of the web-portals of global enterprises from its US headquarters and additional offices in Buenos Aires, London, Tokyo, and Sydney. Recently the firm struck a partnership with consulting firm YLD to help its clients with the provision of cybersecurity services.

Founded by Nuno Job, who has been an advisor of Auth0 for the last 6 years, the London-based outfit helps the world's leading organisations like Canon, Joyent (now part of Samsung), Microsoft and Google to build digital products used daily by millions. Before YLD, Job was Chief Commercial Officer at Nodejitsu responsible for the world's largest Node.js cloud. He joined forces with Anthony Mann, an Apple alum and founder of digital product agency, Make Us Proud, now part of YLD to forge a software engineering and design consultancy focused on continuous innovation.

The partnership has already benefited a range of shared clients, including a global publisher and transport service. Recently, YLD chose to use Auth0 as a security tool for a project to help develop a video consultations service for a a venture project developed by YLD Labs. The Gula project saw YLD Labs, a subsidiary company focused on ventures, build a mobile app that offers pet owners the chance to consult with the local vet via video call. The app enables timely, affordable, and relevant healthcare that addresses pet health problems and improves owner understanding of their pet.

The project saw YLD build Gula using React Native and chose Auth0 to cut time to market and offer a great customer experience. Auth0 Rules allowed YLD to deeply integrate user signup with Gula's app with no infrastructure needed. Using Auth0, they implemented authentication in Gula's iOS and Android apps in one day. Auth0 also allowed Gula to offer social login with Google and Facebook with no extra effort.

Remarking on the way YLD works, Job explained, "We embed ourselves within our clients' teams to ensure they learn and develop the capabilities to succeed well beyond our engagement. This is how we achieve our goal of helping the world's leading companies stay ahead of the curve."
