How to Strike the Right Balance Between Security and Consumer Experience

Delivering a perfect harmony of a great user experience along with the highest level of security is crucial today. Let’s learn why a great user experience shouldn’t be compromised for security and how LoginRadius helps enterprises create great personalized user experiences reinforced by strict security.

Adding stringent layers of security becomes a tough nut to crack in a digital world where consumers are always on a hunt for a personalized and flawless user experience.

But that doesn’t mean that security can be compromised to deliver a rich user experience on a web application or a website.

As per stats, 69% of internet users are concerned about data loss/leakage and 66% are worried about their data privacy and confidentiality.

On the other hand, 67% of consumers mentioned bad experiences as a big reason for churn, but only a few of them complain. Many people think that adding a robust layer of security would certainly hamper consumer experience and negatively impact the overall consumer onboarding journey.

So, what’s the trick that helps market leaders stay ahead of the curve? How do they secure consumer data without affecting the consumer experience?

Well, the key lies in creating a perfect harmony of security and user experience through a CIAM (Consumer Identity and Access Management) solution that helps scaling business growth.

Let’s dig deeper into this and understand why a CIAM solution is becoming the need of the hour in the ever-expanding competitive digital world.

Why Consumer Experience Matter Now More than Ever Before

Since the internet is becoming the second home for every individual globally, especially amid the global pandemic, creating and maintaining a great user experience is crucial.

We’ve already seen the paradigm shift from traditional shopping to online purchases, cinemas being replaced by OTT platforms, and almost everything is being made available with just a few clicks.

This means the ones that weren’t leveraging the true potential of online services are now geared up and offering online services as a part of their digital transformation.

Moreover, this trend indicates that enterprises that haven’t yet focused on user experience would surely end up compromising their potential clients to their competitors.

Undoubtedly, keeping pace with the growing competition demands that enterprises should focus more on delivering personalized experiences right from the beginning to enhance conversions and increase signups.

However, leaders are also well aware that even a minor sneak into their network that affects consumer data could be fatal for their brand image.

Let’s understand why security shouldn’t be ignored when focusing on user experience.

Why Security Matters for Your Enterprise and Consumers

In the past couple of years, consumers have gotten a big wake-up call about the value of their personal data and the risks they run if it’s leaked, stolen, or misused.

Moreover, several high-profile hacks and breaches have generated widespread awareness of just how negligent enterprises can be. And consumers are much more careful about which brands they do business with.

On the other hand, stringent consumer privacy legislation such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is spreading to new jurisdictions. Even the most prominent companies aren’t exempt from significant fines.

If consumers don’t trust your business to protect their data and accounts, they’ll find another one. The digital world makes it easy for them to switch providers within a few clicks.
