Cyber-criminals don’t have to innovate to succeed. They just have to widen their net. For years, the number one attack vector for security breaches has remained weak, default or stolen passwords. That’s why it’s never been more important to confirm the identity of your employees, partners and customers. It’s also never been easier. With PingID’s cloud-delivered, multi-factor authentication (MFA), you can increase security without sacrificing the user experience.
MODERN MFA FOR DIGITAL BUSINESS
With PingID, you can select from multiple methods and devices to authenticate. An easy one-touch swipe authentication from a mobile device is available, but when users leave their mobile device at home they can still securely sign on using a range of alternative second factors such as voice, email, desktop application, Yubikey and Apple Watch.
PingID can enhance protection in a wide range of scenarios to meet your security needs, including SSO, VPN, RADIUS, LDAP and web and cloud-based applications. You can also leverage proven integrations with security and access management vendors like Cisco, CA, Oracle Juniper and Palo Alto, as well as an authentication API for online and offline authentication flows.
Enforce MFA to match the security risk. PingID includes policies for applications, session length and devices based on geolocation, trusted networks, endpoint health, managed/unmanaged device status and much more. Context aware policies can be tailored for any scenario such as access from an untrusted network with a managed device to help the cloud-based service approve, deny or step up authentication.
The user experience often begins with authentication, so PingID offers multiple opportunities to brand and customize this important step in the user journey. PingID’s native mobile application, desktop application, registration and enrollment screens are all customizable to your organization's brand.
EMBED MFA IN YOUR MOBILE APP
With PingID’s mobile SDK for iOS and Android, you can embed user-friendly MFA functionality natively into your own applications. You can rapidly provide additional security for your end users while maintaining a branded experience through convenient mobile swipe authentication and custom transaction approvals. You can also allow users to manage their trusted mobile devices within your mobile application, helping to drive adoption and engagement.
LESS HARDWARE. FEWER HEADACHES.
As a cloud service, PingID is easy to install and set up. It provides your users strong authentication for all of the applications they need to get work done—no matter where they are. By cutting out on-premises infrastructure and unnecessary hardware tokens, PingID reduces the hardware burden on administrators and users alike. And it integrates with dozens of third-party strong authentication providers, enabling a seamless migration path.

THE RIGHT PRESCRIPTION FOR MULTI-FACTOR AUTHENTICATION
GlaxoSmithKline employees utilize a variety of on-premises and custom applications, and GSK wanted to make accessing these applications as secure and straightforward an experience as possible. They were in search of a multi-factor authentication (MFA) and single sign-on (SSO) solution that was easy to manage, easy to maintain and built on open standards.
GSK selected PingFederate and PingID as their primary MFA provider. Since then, help desk calls related to PingID have been extremely low at significantly less than 1 percent of enrollments. IAM Solutions Architect Brian Lewis says, “Ping has been easy to maintain, and support has been excellent.”
