DENVER, Colo. — March 14, 2013

DENVER, Colo. — March 14, 2013 — Ping Identity®, The Identity Security Company™, today announced open registration and the initial lineup of workshops, sessions, featured speakers and sponsors for the Cloud Identity Summit 2013, taking place July 8-12 at Napa, California’s Meritage Resort and Spa. The Cloud Identity Summit will explore how identity is enabling a new world of collaboration and business agility across cloud, mobile, social and big data.

“Employees and customers have new expectations for how, where and when business gets done. IT leaders are struggling to manage secure access to hundreds of applications on dozens of devices across multiple clouds and data centers,” said Andre Durand, CEO of Ping Identity. “It’s time to re-think everything we thought we knew about security, control, governance and privacy. Re-thinking identity management in the age of cloud, mobile and social technology disruptions is the key to both enabling business advantage and securing the enterprise – and will be the focus of this year’s event.”

The fourth annual Cloud Identity Summit will help define the future of security in a world where identity is the new perimeter and showcase the latest technologies and solutions from the leading implementers and industry luminaries. Attendees will learn more about the future of identity and access management while obtaining best practices from and networking with identity and security leaders.
