Our customer-first culture has helped us achieve tremendous growth. Over the years, our CEO, Andre Durand, has shared our evolution with Nathan Latka, host of The Top Entrepreneur podcast. In episode 963 from 2016, Andre shared how Ping was founded on the concepts of using identity to secure an anonymous internet and helping large enterprises connect and secure their internal systems. He also shared how that vision has expanded to zero login and real-time access security that helps organizations deliver frictionless yet secure user experiences.
The 2020 Latka 250
After selling his own business in 2015, Latka launched GetLatka.com, where he maintains a database of the top SaaS companies. In addition to producing a daily podcast where he interviews SaaS CEOs, Latka also publishes an annual list called the Latka 250 that recognizes the fastest-growing SaaS companies.
To identify the top 250 companies for the 2020 rankings, companies’ December 2019 monthly recurring revenue was annualized and compared to their revenue in December 2020. The companies were then split into three categories to recognize the unique growth challenges at each stage: $1 million to 10 million, $10 million to $20 million and $20 million to $100 million. In total, the top 250 companies for 2020 do $8.5 billion in revenue, service 2.2 million customers, and have raised a total of $12 billion dollars.
Latka received a whopping 5,091 applications for just 250 positions on the 2020 list. And Ping made the cut!

Supporting Your Cloud-first Initiatives
For many, the transition to working from home was swift, unexpected and created even more urgency to accelerate cloud initiatives. When you must provide your employees access to resources from anywhere, as well as give your customers seamless and consistent digital experiences, your ability to leverage the cloud is key. Whether you’re just starting out or need more advanced capabilities, you’ll find that Ping has a cloud identity solution for you.
If identity-as-a-service (IDaaS), or SaaS-delivered IAM, is the best choice for you, PingOne will get you up and running quickly. You can onboard both customer and workforce applications and users in a matter of minutes. You’ll enjoy support for thousands of SaaS applications and popular open standards including SAML and OpenID Connect, as well as access to advanced services that enable enterprises with legacy and nonstandard applications to achieve cloud mandates.
Alternatively, if you prefer to host and manage our software yourselves, you can leverage cloud automation and orchestration capabilities, including Docker and Kubernetes, to deploy our solutions in the cloud of your choice. This option gives you the most flexibility and allows you to rapidly integrate identity security into your DevOps initiatives.
Whichever fits your needs best, our cloud identity offerings will help you achieve the increased speed, agility and efficiency you’re looking for at every step of your journey. To learn more about our cloud-based identity solutions, visit pingidentity.com.
Helping You Get Your Business Back to Normal Faster

Our Project COVID Freedom initiative, which leverages personal identity through Ping’s recently-acquired ShoCard application, allows healthcare providers, businesses and individuals to easily share digital proof of COVID test results and vaccinations.
