Ping Identity Tops Product Leadership Category in KuppingerCole Leadership Compass for Customer Identity and Access Management

Report highlights Ping’s strengths in offering largest number of authentication options and supporting many large scale, high-performance on-premise, and cloud deployments


Denver — December 5, 2016

Ping Identity®, the leader in Identity Defined Security, is driving the market for Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM) with new products, customer success and accolades from industry analysts. The company was highlighted as a product leader in the Leadership Compass for CIAM Platforms by KuppingerCole, a leading global analyst company headquartered in Europe that focuses on Information Security and Identity and Access Management (IAM).


KuppingerCole’s Leadership Compass is a tool that identifies leaders in select market segments and provides an overview of their capabilities. The analyst firm recognizes the growing demand for CIAM solutions that collect, store, secure, manage, and analyze customer identity data to enable digital business. KuppingerCole published the 2016 CIAM Leadership Compass report, the first in this segment, to help enterprises evaluate customer identity management platforms that meet requirements for providing better digital experiences, improving security and privacy, and facilitating the use of customer data to create additional sales opportunities and increase brand loyalty. The report highlights vendor performance across four categories - product leaders, market leaders, innovation leaders, and overall leaders. Ping is a leader in the product category and a top challenger in all others.


“Customer experience defines competitive advantage for all businesses, and in short order, Ping’s acquisition of UnboundID has uniquely positioned us to capture the CIAM market with a platform that enables the enterprise to drive increased revenue, customer engagement and loyalty,” said Andre Durand, CEO of Ping Identity. “We are excited by the immediate response to the expanded CIAM offering that we announced last month.”


The Ping Identity Platform greatly simplifies the complexity of identity-centric customer engagement into one solution. With more than 3 billion identities under management, Ping Identity is proven to scale with large enterprises and offers versatility for different enterprise needs with its broad API and protocol support, commitment to open standards, and support for both on-premise and cloud solutions. Ping also ensures regulatory compliance for a global customer base, including customer data privacy management and data access governance.
