CAOS ltd. was founded in April 2019 in eastern Switzerland as an open core software company.
The independent software company focuses on the development and deployment of the Identity & Access Management (IAM) platform ZITADEL, specifically to simplify the login process for software providers and medium-sized enterprises. ZITADEL is offered from the public cloud, hosted in Switzerland, and as a dedicated instance for customers.
Furthermore, CAOS offers consulting for software lifecycle automation, software operations, and automation tool development.
As of today CAOS is fully owned by its founders and employees and fully self financed.

ZITADEL is an OpenSource Cloud Native IAM developed and maintained by CAOS Ltd. The IAM has a strong focus toward industry standards and provides you with modern API’s and federation protocols such as OpenID Connect and OAuth 2.0. To especially support “service provider” use cases, ZITADEL provides the possibility to grant third parties the rights to manage their access rights on their own. Furthermore ZITADEL is built around a rock solid long term audit trail, where all system operations are protocolled.
CAOS offers ZITADEL as a shared cloud service in the form of ZITADEL.ch which is operated out of Switzerland. By default the data stored in ZITADEL.ch are stored in Swiss Data Centres. ZITADEL.ch provides a subscription based pricing model where companies carry no financial risk from scaling efforts.
For customers with greater separation requirements it is possible to run ZITADEL in private- or public cloud environments. We call this offering ZITADEL Enterprise (license) and ZITADEL Enterprise Cloud (managed service).
