We recently introduced our next generation access control tool, which is built to reflect our enterprise commitment to open standards, integration, interoperability and the changing identity infrastructure landscape.
PingAccess, which complements our industry leading federated identity and single sign-on platform PingFederate, is aimed at the challenges enterprises face with aging web access management tools (WAM) and the proliferation of new-era API requirements as they craft a modern enterprise cloud architecture.
In this environment of anywhere, any device demands, PingAccess controls user, application, and device access from the cloud or data-center and eliminates the use of costly agents.
What we heard from enterprises was the need for a nimble WAM solution augmented by PingFederate's interoperability with on-premises applications and identity stores. The market is looking for this mash-up of WAM and API gateways - especially as mobile devices demands API interfaces.
A major strength of PingAccess is its ability to integrate with existing, internal identity management, be it WAM, SSO, directories or Kerberos.
PingAccess weaves the latest technologies, standards and interface designs into a lightweight package that sits between clients (native mobile, web) and resources (web apps, APIs).
A few of its unique qualities include support for standards-based JSON Web Token (JWT) session tokens, and alignment with PingFederate for access control via OAuth and OpenID Connect (along with all of PingFederate's pre-existing WAM and other integration kits).
Our commitment is to build the next generation of identity management for an era defined by cloud, mobile and APIs that require wholesale interoperability. Combined with PingFederate, PingAccess provides enterprises with a fresh approach to access control and single sign-on. If you're looking to reduce the cost or operational complexity of your WAM solution, unify access-control across your Web, API and mobile applications, or simply collapse all three into a single solution with a single source of truth for auditing and reporting, look no further, PingAccess is your ticket.
