Denver Rescue Mission Chooses Ping Identity to Secure Its Hybrid Cloud Environment
Ping Identity and Softchoice Collaborate to Help Denver Rescue Mission Achieve Its Digital Transformation Goals
DENVER — October 9, 2019 — Ping Identity (NYSE: PING), a pioneer in Intelligent Identity, today announced that Denver Rescue Mission has selected the Ping Intelligent Identity™ platform to help provide quality security and service to its staff and program participants. The solution will help Denver Rescue Mission address its increased need for remote access to critical applications, while also helping it achieve hybrid cloud security goals.
Denver Rescue Mission has a strategic cybersecurity initiative intended to help ensure better, faster and safer systems. The objective of this program is to drive increased productivity, allowing the organization to help its patrons achieve self-sufficiency.
Initially, Denver Rescue Mission sought traditional single sign-on (SSO) and multi-factor authentication (MFA) capabilities. As it continued its evaluation process in collaboration with Softchoice, a leading North American provider of IT solutions and managed services, Ping Identity stood out as a clear leader. The Ping Intelligent IdentityTM platform exceeded its expectations by providing fast-to-deploy and easy-to-use solutions to secure its hybrid cloud infrastructure.
Over the last two years, Softchoice has guided Denver Rescue Mission in its digital transformation journey, by identifying innovative, new technologies—ranging from applications and network infrastructure to cloud computing. Ping Identity’s partnership with Softchoice dates back to 2014. Together, the two organizations equip Denver Rescue Mission with a modern IT infrastructure and the tools to secure it.
“Denver Rescue Mission is on a hybrid cloud transformation journey and security is a critical aspect of cloud operations,” said Lisa Yu, vice president of sales, US Central, Softchoice. “We are happy to work together with our partner Ping Identity to help Denver Rescue Mission achieve its secure hybrid cloud infrastructure goals.”
“We found Ping Identity to be a clear champion when it came to meeting our needs in a hybrid and diverse technical environment,” said Phillip Torres, director of information technology, Denver Rescue Mission. “As we make this move to a modern IT infrastructure, the Ping Identity team has established itself as a true partner, and that has made a real difference in our ability to develop our security culture.”
