Winvale and Ping Identity Partner on Cloud Identity Security Solutions for Government
Passing on Passwords: Identity Federation is Improving Online Security for Government Agencies
Washington, DC, March 8, 2012 – Winvale, a leading government technology solutions provider focused on identifying and integrating emerging technologies that solve mission critical needs, today announced a new partnership with Ping Identity®, the cloud identity security leaderTM.
Ping Identity delivers simple, proven, and secure cloud identity management, including cloud application single sign-on, federated identity management, mobile app identity security, API security, and social network integration for any employee, citizen, or partner identity security initiative. With Ping Identity, IT can still leverage existing identity management investments while separating identity from applications and centralizing the control of identities and access.
“With Ping Identity, agencies can eliminate most passwords for government employees, contractors, and citizens, and adhere to proven, secure identity standards to maximize interoperability,” said Kevin Lancaster, Winvale Managing Partner. “By enabling a single, flexible, standards-based identity architecture, it allows the government to avoid the excessive cost of multiple, independent identity silos”.
Now on Winvale’s GSA Schedule 70, GS-35F-0074S, Ping Identity fosters an effective government-wide access management and secure information sharing environment envisioned in the Identity Credential and Access Management (ICAM) mission. It represents the intersection of digital identities, credentials and access control into one comprehensive approach. With Ping Identity, the government can leverage existing identity infrastructure to support integration and standards to avoid costly, fragile or high maintenance architectures.
“Ping Identity and Winvale offer Government agencies a way to employ emerging cloud identity security technologies to be more effective and efficient,” said Ping Identity Partner Marketing Manager Lynn Shepardson. “Winvale’s history of addressing large-scale, logically complex deployments with simple, scalable, solutions that quickly meet client needs, mirrors Ping’s approach to cloud identity management. It’s a natural partnership. ”
