Ping Identity Named a Leader in Gartner’s 2018 Magic Quadrant for Access Management, Worldwide
Company Included in Leaders Quadrant for Two Years in a Row
Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute
Denver — June 21, 2018 — Ping Identity, the leader in Identity Defined Security, today announced that it has been named a Leader by Gartner, Inc. in the Magic Quadrant for Access Management, Worldwide, published on June 18, 2018.
For the past two years, Gartner has cited Ping Identity as a Leader in its Magic Quadrant for Access Management, Worldwide. Ping Identity feels this position reflects its tremendous growth, and is further reinforcement of the importance it places on supporting digital transformation initiatives within the world’s most successful global enterprises.
The Ping Identity Platform delivers a unified, standards-based identity and access management (IAM) solution designed to support enterprise hybrid IT environments. From multi-factor authentication and single sign-on to access security, directory and data governance, the capabilities work together to give employees, partners and customers secure access to the cloud, mobile and on-premises applications they need. The solution secures and streamlines the user experience from sign-on to sign-off, and can scale to handle millions of identities.
Demand for Access Management Solutions
The research notes that “The primary driver for new access management purchases has been the need for workforce users to access SaaS applications. B2C is second, and different topologies for B2B and workforce users accessing internal systems (i.e., B2E) is third.”
Report author and Research Vice President Gregg Kreizman writes that “the access management market has evolved to better support more diversity in user authentication methods, contextual and more intelligent adaptive access, mobile computing, and API target services. These feature sets continue to mature in 2018.”
"Ping was built for the enterprise. It takes more than great technology to become a leader within the enterprise, it takes a dedication to customer service, an ecosystem of technology and integration partners, world class customer support and a long history of serving enterprises with scale, performance, and reliability,” said Andre Durand, CEO of Ping Identity. "As legacy identity stacks are being replaced by more modern, nimble and standards-based solutions like Ping, we're pleased to be recognized as a Leader."
Adds Durand, "Not only are we growing at a tremendous rate, but we're also incredibly proud of the profitability and financial health of our business. We've increased employee headcount by more than 25% in the last year, and have opened and expanded offices in Paris, Melbourne, Zurich, Austin, Denver and India. These data points are further reinforcement for the commitment we have made toward driving customer satisfaction—and overachieving on those expectations."
