“We are very pleased that, with netID, we have been able to integrate another login standard into our portfolio. This enables us to provide our customers with a login that complies with European data protection standards, in addition to our own single sign-on and social logins, such as Google and Apple.
Through cooperation with the netID Foundation, we now enable seamless and legally compliant data management,” said York Walterscheid, Managing Director of CeleraOne.
netID partners already include publishing houses, such as Ippen Digital, which are represented with around 50 portals. These include Merkur.de and tz.de, as well as the Süddeutsche Zeitung and Gruner + Jahr with its online magazine Essen & Trinken.
“By working with CeleraOne, we can make the netID single sign-on available to other publishers and online offerings using a simple, uncomplicated approach and further increase our reach. This strengthens our market position as a single sign-on provider and increases awareness of our netID with providers as well as with users”, adds Sven Bornemann, CEO of the European netID Foundation.
CeleraOne was founded in Berlin in 2011 and has since revolutionized digital subscription strategies for newspaper publishers with data-driven paywall and single sign-on solutions. More than 150 publishing titles already use the software to monetize their digital content. These include BILD, WELT, Neue Zürcher Zeitung, ZEIT ONLINE, Süddeutsche Zeitung, Göteborgs-Posten and many more. Further information is available atceleraone.com.
