Ping Identity Names Versent “Partner of the Year” in Asia Pacific

Melbourne-Based Solution Provider Recognized for Driving Continued Customer Success and Representing the Ping Values


SYDNEY and MELBOURNE, May 8, 2018 — Ping Identity, the leader in Identity Defined Security, today announced that Versent, a Melbourne-headquartered technology, managed services and PaaS provider, has been named “Partner of the Year” for the Asia Pacific market. Versent received the award based on its commitment to driving new license revenue through customer acquisition, in addition to delivering digital identity innovation among customer organizations.


Tommy Butler, director, global channel sales, Ping Identity, said, “We’re pleased to celebrate Versent’s outstanding achievements with this Partner of the Year award. They set a great example of how partners are leveraging Ping Identity solutions in innovative and progressive ways to drive their own growth, while also supporting Australian business requirements for robust digital identity solutions.”


“This award recognizes our local partner capability for delivering solutions that enable customers to realize exceptional returns on their Ping Identity investment,” added Butler. “We look forward to working closely with our partners in the year ahead, as we continue our focus on establishing high customer satisfaction as a global business standard.”


Last year, Ping Identity also recognized Versent with the “Customer Experience Champion” award based on the company’s work with Service New South Wales and Telstra.


Thor Essman, CEO and Founder, Versent, said, “We’re both humbled and honored to receive this accolade from Ping Identity. From day one, Ping has always shared our core values of customer obsession and integrity, and is committed to supporting our efforts to spread awareness on identity and security best practices that work.”


The Ping Identity Partner Program provides the software, training, support and services that partners need to achieve outstanding results in their markets and areas of specialization. As part of the ongoing strategy to collaborate with partners and celebrate their accomplishments, Ping Identity continues to make investments in its program and partner community. In fact, this year’s Identity Excellence Awards program features a “Better Together” category, where customers and partners that are working together can submit a nomination as a team. The winners will be announced at Identiverse in June 2018.
