The acquisition of Sxip Access is a smart move by Ping Identity. Although it can be used to provide SSO for SaaS, PingFederate (the company's flagship multi-protocol federated identity offering) lacks some of the rapid implementation and deployment capabilities of Sxip Access. Part of the SaaS proposition is that organisations can get up-to-speed much more rapidly. Authentication and authorisation shouldn't hold you back: something that Sxip Access should help to prevent. Back in September Ping began to actively target the SaaS opportunity, allowing providers to sell PingFederate-based SSO to their customers and share the revenue with Ping. Yesterdays announcement should accelerate this.

ecuring "enterprise 2.0" (largely SaaS-driven) applications is one of the huge blind spots in that space. Something that Michael Barrett, CISO of PayPal, compared to "giving a child scissors and telling them to go run around." Moving to solve that problem is good for Ping, good for Sxip, good for CSOs everywhere, and good for identity in general.

Today, Ping Identity announced it is acquiring Sxip Access, the portion of Sxip Identity that provided identity management for software-as-a-service applications. Sxip Identity will still exist and focus its energies on Sxipper and other Identity 2.0/Web 2.0 technologies. This appears to be a good strategy for both parties. Sxip is free to focus solely on the realm of user centric identity technology and approaches. Ping is able to immediately add support for SaaS applications to its federation portfolio, bolstering is ability to address the growing needs of organizations with distributed applications and a dispersed workforce.
