When you’re one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies securing 114,000 employee identities, where do you turn when your legacy access solution is reaching its end of life?
You go with a winning prescription: PingFederate and PingAccess.
The firm previously was using PingFederate, the leading enterprise federation server for user authentication, to give their workforce standards-based single sign-on (SSO) to their mobile, cloud and enterprise applications. They were also using a legacy access management solution that was difficult to manage and upgrade. As that product approached end of life, the company looked for a new solution that would reduce security risk and ensure compliance.
After extensive research, the company selected PingAccess to ensure that their sensitive healthcare resources would be both accessible and secure. PingAccess:
Centrally manages authorization capabilities
Handles the firm’s needs around both web-based applications and APIs
Has a modern design that the company determined was easily upgradable
Enables administrators to customize access policies based on user attributes
PingAccess has been integrated with PingFederate for a platform solution that enables the enterprise to provide their employees with the right access to the right things. The flexible architecture of PingAccess allowed for a smooth transition from the legacy solution and future-proofs the company as their needs evolve.
PingAccess and PingFederate harness open standards including SAML, OAuth and OpenID Connect to enable secure web single sign-on, protect APIs and provide centralized, dynamic session management. This prevents vendor lock-in and accelerates application development to enable IT to manage access consistently. Other benefits include the abilities to easily integrate with web apps and APIs, to audit all access correlated by identity and context, and to utilize centralized policy management.
