Ultimate Software to Offer Ping Identity Single Sign-On Solutions for UltiPro Human Capital Management

DENVER, Colo. — April 26, 2012

DENVER, Colo. — April 26, 2012 — Ping Identity®, The Cloud Identity Security Leader™, today announced that Ultimate Software, a leading provider of people management solutions in the Cloud, and a member of Ping Identity’s SaaS Partner Program, will offer PingOne and PingFederate to customers looking for a secure, cloud-based single sign-on (SSO) connection to Ultimate’s UltiPro® human capital management (HCM) solution. 

Once the optional Ping Identity-enabled SSO has been established for UltiPro, customers can choose to extend to other cloud-based applications to give their workforce the ability to log in one time and access selected cloud-based business applications with a single click — delivering substantial improvement in the employee experience, increased efficiency, and improved employee satisfaction.

“UltiPro is designed to unleash the full potential of people within organizations and strengthen their productivity. Part of that is making sure employees have simple, secure, browser-based and mobile access to the solutions they use to run their business,” said Ultimate Director of Strategic Alliances Jennifer Brafman Staffen. “A strong track record of excellence in this space and the ability to offer customers public, private and hybrid options made partnering with Ping Identity a natural choice.”

A powerful solution, conveniently delivered on-demand as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) in the cloud, UltiPro unites all components of human capital management into a master system of record for global people management. The solution supports more than seven million person records across 2300 organizations worldwide. People use UltiPro on a daily and weekly basis for access to critical pay, benefits, company, and career-related information—so convenient single sign-on access is a huge advantage.

With Ping Identity, Ultimate can provide its customers:

  • One-click access to UltiPro – via PingOne CloudDesktop
  • Centralized account control, security and compliance for IT
  • Fast employee onboarding and exiting
  • Single sign-on optimized for secure mobile access

“Custom coding proprietary SSO connections for each customer is time-consuming and expensive,” said Mike Desai, Sr. Director, SaaS, Ping Identity. “Ping Identity removes these burdens for Ultimate and its customers, providing standards-based SSO that never compromises security and helps meet their customers’ compliance requirements.”
