Ping Identity, the leader in Identity Defined Security, today announced that it has been named a leader in the KuppingerCole Leadership Compass for Identity as a Service: Single Sign-On to the Cloud (IDaaS SSO). The Leadership Compass provides an overview of vendors and their single sign-on offering delivered as a cloud service. Ping was named a leader across all four key categories (Overall Leadership, Product/Solution Leadership, Innovation Leadership and Leadership in Market Reach) among 21 vendors included in the research.

KuppingerCole defines the IDaaS market as vendors who provide a single sign-on cloud service to users, including employees, business partners and customers.

In naming Ping Identity a leader in IDaaS, the KuppingerCole analysts cite Ping as “an established pioneer in the market for Identity Federation and Cloud IAM. The company is highly engaged in standards initiatives, driving the development of standards.”

PingOne Cloud, Ping Identity’s leading IDaaS solution, delivers one-click access to all of the SaaS, legacy and custom web applications users need with the robust security global organizations demand.

The analysts conclude PingOne Cloud, “is one of the leading vendors in the IDaaS SSO market. Based on their strong offering, they should be considered when evaluating enterprise-level providers for IDaaS SSO.”
