DENVER, Colo. — September 4, 2013


DENVER, Colo. — September 4, 2013 — Ping Identity®, The Identity Security Company™, has been named a leader in Forrester Research Inc.’s, “The Forrester Wave™: Identity And Access Management Suites, Q3 2013” report, issued this week. Ping Identity was among the highest scoring vendors in Web single Sign-on (SSO), Federation, Cloud support and Financials and stability.

According to Forrester, “Ping Identity shines at federation and SSO and partners successfully for the rest. Ping Identity is the only vendor examined in this Forrester Wave with a decade-long success story specifically around standards-based federation, available both as an on-premises product, PingFederate, and more recently as a cloud IAM solution, PingOne.” 

In the report, Forrester evaluated nine vendors in the IAM suite category based on 16 criteria across three high-level groups: current offering, strategy and market presence. According to Forrester, Ping Identity is one of three vendors that “showed consistency with leading IAM suites that encompass identity provisioning, attestation, web SSO, and federation. They offer easy-to-use interfaces, a differentiated vision and thought leadership for IAM, and strong execution.” Ping Identity’s PingFederate®, ADConnect, and PingOne™ offerings were evaluated.

“At Ping Identity, we are committed to protecting identity across the extended enterprise through a standards-based approach that delivers scale, reliability and security,” said Roger Oberg, vice president of marketing and product management, Ping Identity. “We’re excited by the work we’re doing with thousands of customers and are pleased to be recognized as an IAM leader by Forrester.”
