PingOne has always been a breakout product for Ping Identity, developed in parallel with our federated identity solutions with a focus on being an end-to-end solution meeting diverse requirements as a fundamental principle. It was through that lens that we saw our customers embrace PingOne as a complementary and powerful addition to on-premises federated identity strategies, taking the best of highly-secure, centrally-managed single sign-on to the cloud.
The result? Effective hybrid deployment capabilities for customers who need it, and simple deployment in the cloud for those who don't.
We then added service provider connection after connection creating one of the most complete standards-based catalogs in the industry. But we like to over-achieve, so why stop there? This year we started empowering popular applications like Dropbox and Concur with powerful provisioning capabilities and mature directory integration options. These connections allow us to serve the needs of SaaS app providers who want to offer SSO as a customer solution, while also serving the needs of enterprise customers who rely on standards to provide SSO - ultimately the real winners are employees who just want a faster, easier way to access the apps they use every day.
CloudDesktop is now often mimicked by competitive solutions, such as Salesforce.com's newly-announced identity offering, because it just makes sense. You give your employees a single desktop from which to access all of the apps they need with a single click - one username, one password, zero headaches. Security-conscious IT groups get a central point from which to manage application access and powerful reporting and compliance features.
Recently we expanded PingOne to include new password vaulting features and support for thousands of applications. However, we still do things a little differently (would you expect anything else?). We're not content with the widely-used approach of storing passwords locally with encryption and a shiny UI. We built the shiny UI but devised a better way to password vault - in the cloud and on the local machine to provide a single user experience across multiple endpoints, because today people do their work on multiple devices.
User experience is our top priority - after all, if you can't use it what's the point of us building cool stuff? PingOne takes what customers love about Ping Identity up a few notches with self-service options (be free and use SSO without talking to sales!), new user interfaces and products that meet the needs of end users and IT security pros alike.
At Ping Identity we know where we came from and what got us here - you.
