Ping Identity Named to Constellation ShortList for Cloud Identity Management, Four Times in a Row

Ping Identity Recognized as an Industry Leader for Supporting and Driving Enterprise-Wide Digital Transformation Initiatives


Denver — February 28, 2018


Ping Identity, the leader in Identity Defined Security, today announced it was named to the Constellation ShortList™ for Cloud Identity Management in Q1 2018. The technology vendors included in the Constellation ShortList offer the key requirements for early adopters pursuing digital transformation initiatives.


Enterprises are undergoing digital transformation, and driving engagement consistently across channels is a top business initiative. To deliver great experiences and increase productivity, employees and partners must be able to easily embrace fast-moving cloud and mobile technologies. And IT needs to be agile to deliver on these promises. But as business shifts and cyber attacks increase in frequency and impact, security, privacy and compliance are top concerns. The old perimeter-based approach to security is no longer enough.


“Boardrooms and their executive suites must be cognizant of the business extinction events and the exponential technologies that will transform their industries,” said R “Ray” Wang, chairman and founder at Constellation Research. “Each Constellation ShortList, researched and curated by our analysts, guides early adopters in identifying the right technologies to support new business models and improve engagement. Leaders now have a list of the top technology partners that can co-innovate and co-create with customers to thrive and dominate digital disruption.”


The, Ping Identity Platform allows digital enterprises to put identity at the core of their security architecture by centralizing access control, protecting sensitive identity data, enforcing corporate data access policies and reducing the risk of stolen credentials. The solution helps organizations streamline the user experience from sign-on to sign-off, and scales to support hundreds of millions of identities. Additionally, with multiple hybrid IT deployment models (on-premises, cloud, MSP or others), companies can choose the right balance of customization, control and management resources.


"The CIM ShortList uses a number of criteria including the richness of the app catalog, the breadth and depth of account lifecycle management, and account administration,” added Steve Wilson, vice president and principal analyst, Constellation Research. “We also rate highly those service providers that are firmly committed to standards, not just in adoption but by making a strong contribution to the standards community."


Constellation Research advises leaders on leveraging disruptive technologies to achieve business model transformation. Products and services named to the Constellation ShortList meet the threshold criteria for this category as determined through client inquiries, partner conversations, customer references, vendor selection projects, market share and internal research. The Constellation ShortList is frequently updated as market conditions change.
