How Ory Beats Firebase

Ory users rave about our robust APIs, security, and commitment to the open source community.

When we created Ory, we prioritized developer happiness and security. You'll see this as you work with Ory to create portable, secure auth experiences.

  • Customizability

    Not only will your developers enjoy working with Ory, but so will all of your team members. Auth forms are customizable, so you can add your designer to the list of team members who enjoy using Ory.

  • Authorization

    Auth is more than just login and registration. That's why Ory offers OAuth2 and OIDC, multiple access control paradigms, low-latency permissions checks, and granular permissions capabilities.

  • Developer Friendly

    Developers appreciate our robust APIs, CLI, multiple SDKs, and docs. Almost anything you can do in the console, you can do via API.

  • Portability

    By choosing a solution that has an open source alternative and utilizes open standards, companies can maintain control over their data and avoid being dependent on a particular vendor. This allows for greater agility in responding to changes in the market or business needs, without being hindered by technology limitations or vendor dependencies.

  • Integrations

    From CRMs and customer support applications to developer tooling and product tools, it’s vital that your identity management solution can integrate and share data with your most important applications.

  • Straightforward Pricing

    When you sign up for Ory, you'll get everything you need to build auth in one plan. No need to parse out various GCP services for authentication, authorization, identity management, hosting, and storage.
