The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company is the world's largest marketer of branded consumer lawn and garden products. Headquartered in Marysville, Ohio, the company is an industry leader in the lawn and garden market, with regional offices and research facilities across the United States and businesses in Canada, Europe, and the Asia Pacific.
As the company broadened user access to more applications and data, it was imperative that they were securing the digital enterprise without compromising the agility of the business. Scotts required an identity platform that would enable their employees to seamlessly sign on to their dozens of SaaS applications, most of which used SAML 2.0.
The organization was relying on outdated and ineffective authentication and access controls for the important applications that employees needed to use. Internal users were clicking on external links via a shared web page in order to access critical applications—and Scotts knew they couldn’t rely on this solution for long.
Scotts Miracle-Gro selected PingFederate because of its extensibility and industry-leading, modern standards support. Ping Identity acts as the organization's authentication authority, performing user identification in a secure, controlled, and centralized manner. One-click single sign-on (SSO) enables approximately 7,500 employees to log in to the 50 SaaS, mobile, cloud, and enterprise applications they need, including Google Apps, SAP, insurance sites, and more, using a single set of credentials.
We work with several vendors, and Ping is hands down my favorite. The technology just works, and the support and partnership that we have with the team is unparalleled.
