Coalfire Secures Employee Access with Ping Identity Single Sign-On to Office 365
DENVER, CO, May 22, 2018 — Ping Identity, the leader in Identity Defined Security, today announced that Coalfire has successfully implemented single sign-on (SSO) and multi-factor authentication (MFA) to help ensure its environment offers the highest level of security for employees. With roughly 40 percent of its workforce in mobile environments, Coalfire looked to the award-winning Ping Identity Platform to help employees seamlessly authenticate from multiple devices.
As a trusted provider of cybersecurity advisory services and go-to partner for organizations across industries, such as cloud/technology, financial services, healthcare and government, Coalfire required a technology vendor that could address its stringent security requirements. The company also sought a robust solution for federated SSO that was easy to administer and safeguarded both employee and customer data from threats or breaches. With these prerequisites in mind, Ping Identity was the natural choice for its security posture, flexible deployment options, and user experience.
As Coalfire moves its applications to the cloud, the Ping Identity solutions play a critical role in supporting the company’s agile, cloud-first strategy. Looking to remove its dependency on office-based servers among its 13 locations across the United States and United Kingdom, Coalfire has successfully migrated a range of applications off of Microsoft Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS). Additionally, it has implemented advanced authentication scenarios for a range of mission-critical applications, including Box and Office 365. Now, employees have one-click access to more than 30 applications. Leveraging PingFederate, PingOne and PingID together, Coalfire has experienced a reduction in security risks.
“Ping Identity provides seamless, convenient access to Office 365 and the tools that our mobile workforce needs,” said Robert L. Flores, CIO, Coalfire. “The feedback from employees has been very consistent. They no longer have to manage various bookmarks for their SaaS applications, but instead have one-click access to the tools they need. This is security made simple, which we consider a win-win.”
