The KuppingerCole Leadership Compass for CIAM awarded Ping Identity’s CIAM solution “Strong Positive” ratings across the areas of security, functionality, interoperability, usability and deployment, only one of two vendors to receive the highest rating across all five product categories. The report also notes that “Ping Identity has been a pioneer in identity federation and access management since its founding in 2002” and was among the first of the enterprise IAM vendors to offer CIAM.

The KuppingerCole Leadership Compass for Access Management also awarded Ping Identity strong positive ratings, and with cloud, hybrid and on-premises deployment models, noted, “the Ping [Intelligent] Identity Platform should be included in any shortlist for Access Management platform solutions to consider.”

The KuppingerCole Leadership Compass for Enterprise Authentication Solutions included Ping Intelligent Identity Platform as a Market Champion, with “solutions [that are] highly scalable and offer maximum flexibility to customers in terms of support for standards as well as innovation for cutting edge use cases.”
