Ping Identity Opens Australian Data Centre to Meet Growing Global Customer Demand

Growing Customer Acceptance of Cloud-Based Identity Defined Security Solutions Across Region; Expanded Corporate Presence; Upcoming Events in Australia

DENVER and SYDNEY — April 5, 2016 - Ping Identity® - -, the leader in Identity Defined Security, today announced that it has opened a new data centre in Asia Pacific to meet the growing demand of local enterprise and government customers for cloud-based identity solutions across the region. This new facility in Australia adds to existing Ping Identity data centers in the U.S. and Germany.

Hosted on Amazon Web Services, the new data centre enables customers to leverage PingOne Cloud, a key component of the Ping Identity Platform. PingOne Cloud delivers one-click access to all of the SaaS, legacy and custom web applications users need with full security, and enables organisations to isolate their personally identifiable information (PII) in specific regions.

More than 1,500 enterprises around the world rely on Ping Identity to deliver secure access to more than 1.3 billion identities, and the demand for solutions for partners, customers and employee workforce identities continues to grow as more enterprises embrace the cloud, mobile and API economy.

Andre Durand, CEO and founder of Ping Identity, said, “Key to our strategy of growing a global business is to enable customers to execute their identity and security strategies without barriers, and having data in-region satisfies regulatory requirements and preference for many customers. We are thrilled to demonstrate our commitment to the APAC region, with new services, strategic investments in hiring and continued momentum in our partner ecosystem. We have put the pieces in place for long-term growth.”

PingOne Cloud is an Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) solution that delivers multi-factor authentication, single sign-on, a cloud directory to manage users and provide access to selected apps, and cloud provisioning to add or remove application access for users. PingOne Cloud utilises multiple AWS regions to achieve the greatest level of service availability, built on an architecture designed to operate across multiple data centre locations at the same time.
