Ping Identity Expands IDaaS Platform for the Digital Enterprise

As Mass Adoption of Multi-Factor Authentication Takes Hold, Ping Identity Redefines User Experience, Delivers “New Rules” for Enterprise IDaaS

Sydney — June 8, 2016 - Ping Identity®, the leader in Identity Defined Security, today unveiled enhancements to its Identity as a Service (IDaaS) platform that enables enterprises to provide a more secure authentication experience that is simple for IT to manage and embraced by end users. The company will demonstrate the new Ping Identity Platform IDaaS features at the Cloud Identity Summit this week.

Enterprises are activating mobile, cloud-forward strategies at an accelerated pace across their organisations to meet growing demands for a single experience that’s easy, personal and secure. To do this effectively, they need identity solutions that provide trusted and seamless access for employees, partners and customers. Enterprises need to simultaneously balance access to legacy on-premise applications with heavy and rapid mobile and cloud app adoption. Today’s announcement helps enterprises continue on this journey toward digital transformation with new features that are designed to meet their unique identity requirements.

“In today’s mobile-centric world, user experience is everything, and identity can make or break it. Mobility, combined with unrelenting phishing attacks, have caused multi-factor authentication to evolve from a ‘nice-to-have’ to a ‘must have,’ but it can’t come at the cost of the seamless experience people have come to expect,” said Andre Durand, CEO and founder, Ping Identity. “Today’s announcement ensures that enterprises can create trusted mobile experiences with very little friction, while also supporting IT’s need to move quickly without compromising quality.”

The new offering delivers many new features and benefits, including:

- A consistent, familiar user experience on mobile devices.

- Updates to mobile MFA offer co-branding capabilities for organisations to use their own branding and logos to provide a familiar and consistent authentication experience for employees, partners and customers. Now enterprises can brand the entire MFA experience as their own.

- Secure privileged access and enhanced support for Windows Remote Desktop.

- To address the high demand for securing privileged access, support for MFA for Windows RDP is now available through PingID. This new feature expands upon the solution’s existing support for cloud-based applications, on-premises applications, VPNs and Secure Shell.

- Refreshed PingOne user interface.

- An upgraded user interface in the PingOne cloud offers customers a simplified, seamless experience. New features allow enterprises to create the best experience for their users and flexibility they need to scale quickly.

“Cisco IT have a wide variety of applications and users all over the globe. We were looking for a standards based, easy to use and a secure yet easy to use platform to meet our highly complex business needs. We are on the road to provide this secure, seamless and easy-to-use experience by leveraging Ping’s unified platform approach which makes the implementation an easy-to-consume service for enterprise IT teams of the world like Cisco,” said Ranjan Jain, Security Architect, Cisco Systems Inc.
