Ping Identity®, the leader in Identity Defined Security, today announced that the Ping Identity Platform won the “Best Identity Management Solution” in the Trust Award category at the SC Awards 2016, held last night during the RSA Conference in San Francisco. The award affirms Ping Identity’s leadership in meeting the demands of global enterprises.
Now in its 19th year and voted on by leaders across the technology, government and industry spectrum, the Trust Award from SC Magazine honors the most outstanding contributions in the information security industry.
In naming Ping Identity as the winner, SC Magazine wrote, Ping Identity “is the only IAM provider to solve identity challenges for enterprises in all stages of cloud adoption whether they’re 100 percent in the cloud or hybrid, so they can keep legacy investments while adopting new technologies...Identity has emerged as the linchpin that CIOs can incorporate into their security strategies to keep their corporate data safe by making it accessible to the right people at the right time. By focusing on authenticating user identity versus protecting the endpoint, enterprises can be more agile and provide secure access to anything, anywhere.”
“Our vision is to enable a world where everything can be seamlessly accessed, while maintaining the highest standards of security,” said Andre Durand, CEO and founder. “This award validates our strategy of delivering solutions that give enterprises the flexibility to host their identity and access management solutions in any architectural environment. As enterprises race to digitize every business function, security has often been a perceived barrier. Ping Identity is the clear leader in providing secure access in this era of digital transformation.”
Ping Identity recently announced significant updates to its Federated Access Management technology, a key component of the Ping Identity Platform. This latest release includes enhancements to single sign-on, multi-factor authentication and access security technologies.
