UnboundID, founded in December 2007, is a developer of highly scalable identity management software, designed for consumer-facing applications such as online retail sites or social networking sites such as Twitter. As part of their vision of building next-generation identity management solutions, UnboundID provides directory services capable of managing high volumes of user identity information for customer-based enterprises at high speeds. UnboundID offers a Java-based LDAP SDK free for download on its website as a first installment in their family of solutions.
UnboundID was founded by four veterans of Sun Microsystems shortly after Sun closed its Austin-based identity management product division. In June 2008, UnboundID signed a deal with a large telecommunications company, and in December received funding from venture capital firm Silverton Partners.
