Ping Identity and SailPoint announced a partnership today, bringing together two of the most innovative modern identity solutions in the market. The partnership centers around a synergy between our products, one that allows enterprises to solve the most complex identity problems caused by hybrid IT environments. I look at it like a Yin Yang symbol, two separate but complementary solutions that together add value beyond the sum of their parts.
Simplified, secure access and governance for complex environments
Organizations are increasingly moving apps to the cloud while still being required to maintain critical applications on premises. One of the main challenges they face is granting secure access to the right people and governing their access to the right applications, while doing so in a user-friendly manner.
The Ping Identity and SailPoint partnership facilitates a flexible, secure and scalable identity ecosystem in this modern environment. SailPoint builds the user profile and empowers users with policy-based, self-service access to all of the applications, data and systems they need to do their jobs. Ping Identity authenticates these users from anywhere on any device, with a flexible identity solution that detects who that user is and what the appropriate access should be.
You can think of it as SailPoint creating a profile with all of the correct attributes and permissions and then Ping consuming that profile’s attributes and permissions for a seamless user experience.
Enhanced visibility & control
The combined solution solves many of the challenges IT administrators face in these complex environments:
It provides the visibility needed to ensure user access is securely authenticated and entitlements are appropriate for their current job/role.
IT control and efficiency is increased by automating identity processes such as provisioning, password management, access requests and access certification.
Users are able to access applications with advanced authentication workflows that increase security using multi-factor authentication (MFA), reducing the work on IT to manage individual authentication per app.
Comprehensive identity governance and access security platform
By combining these two enterprise-grade, proven solutions, organizations can allow access to applications in the public cloud, private cloud or on premises, secure in the knowledge that the correct users are getting the access they require. Enterprises are able to achieve the balance of security and convenience for their users while demonstrating compliance with confidence and ease, maintaining an access audit trail for every identity. In sum, organizations fortify their security posture with an open identity platform—without costly and time-sensitive integrations.
