Ping Identity Awarded Best Identity and Access Security Solution by SIIA for Second Consecutive Year

Company Celebrates Being Recognised by Peers with CODiE Award on the Heels of Recent Wins from Infosecurity, Cybersecurity and CRN

DENVER, June 18, 2018 — Ping Identity, the leader in Identity Defined Security, has been named the Best Identity and Access Security Solution of 2018 as part of the annual SIIA CODiE Awards. CODiE Award recipients are comprised of companies producing the most innovative business technology products across the country and around the world. The Ping Identity Platform was recognised for being delivered in cloud and hybrid IT deployment models, its rapid scalability across large enterprise use cases and the complete protection afforded by its technology.

This announcement comes shortly after Ping Identity was also selected as the Best Identity Management Solution in the Infosecurity Excellence Awards and the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards. Additionally, the company was recently named to CRN’s influential 2018 Security 100 and 20 Coolest Identity Management and Data Protection Vendor lists.

“We’re honoured to receive this recognition for delivering innovative solutions designed to address tomorrow’s enterprise needs today,” said Andre Durand, CEO of Ping Identity. “This is in addition to the large focus we place on driving customer satisfaction and overachieving on expectations—across our technology, as well as the services and support we provide.”

The Ping Identity Platform is designed to improve security and engagement across digital business, by supporting enterprise hybrid IT environments. From multi-factor authentication and single sign-on to access security, directory and data governance, Ping’s capabilities work together to give employees, partners and customers secure access to the cloud, mobile and on-premises applications they need.

“The 2018 CODiE Award winners are the most innovative, high-impact products in the market. We’re happy to recognise these products and the power they have to transform the future of how we do business,” said Ken Wasch, President of SIIA.

The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal trade association for the software and digital content industries, announced the full slate of CODiE winners during a special award ceremony in San Francisco on June 12.

This is the industry's only peer-reviewed awards program. The first-round review of all nominees is conducted by software and business technology experts, including members of the industry, analysts, media, bloggers, bankers and investors. The scores from the expert judge review determine the finalists. SIIA members then vote on the finalist products, and the scores from both rounds are tabulated to select the winners.
