Grand Canyon University Bridges Security Gulf
After evaluating seven different solutions, “Ping was by far and away the clear leader for our needs,” said Manrod. GCU replaced ADFS, their legacy federation solution, with PingFederate, a highly flexible, standards-based platform, and implemented PingID to provide their employees with a seamless, secure user experience.
PingFederate provided the robust set of configuration options that they needed, including the ability to look up identities across multiple active directory forests. Manrod said, “Ping has been very easy to configure, deploy and support.”
With PingID, GCU employees can add and select from multiple authentication methods and devices on the fly. They’ve loved the flexibility of mobile push authentication methods such as swipe, tap, fingerprint and facial recognition, along with SMS one-time passcodes (OTP). Native Kerberos integration allowed them to provide a seamless single sign-on experience while on the network, while requiring MFA when employees are offsite.
