multi-factor authentication

Cybercriminals don’t have to innovate much 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 from phishing and other attack methods. That’s why it’s never been more important to confirm the identity of your employees, partners and customers, and it’s also never been easier. With PingID, you can quickly increase security with cloud-delivered, multi-factor authentication (MFA), without sacrificing the user experience.

how it solves it


Stringent password policies and security awareness trainings have done little to prevent users from reusing their credentials from less secure, third-party websites for corporate networks and resources. With 81% of confirmed data breaches involving weak, default or stolen passwords, the time to offer users a more secure and easier sign-on experience is now. Passwordless authentication allows you to offer end users an easier way. Mobile push authentication, one-time passcodes, Yubikeys and more can be used in place of a password to improve both security and user experience simultaneously.

  • Authentication Methods

    With PingID, users can easily add and select from multiple authentication methods and devices on the fly. Mobile push authentication methods such as swipe, tap, fingerprint and facial recognition  can be used from personal or corporate-owned mobile devices, along with SMS one-time passcodes (OTP). But when users leave their mobile devices at home they can still securely sign on using a range of alternative second factors such as voice and email OTPs, a PIN-protected desktop application, Yubikeys, Apple Watches, Nymi Bands and more.

  • MFA Everywhere

    PingID provides support for all of your enterprise use cases, applications and APIs. It’s simple to deploy common initiatives like MFA for Office 365 and VPN access, and it’s easy to integrate with on-premises or cloud-hosted web apps and SaaS apps through single sign-on flows, web access management systems, via the PingID authentication API or authentication and authorization policies. You can also implement MFA for Windows Login, Azure AD and AD FS. And you can even embed MFA functionality directly into your own customer-facing mobile app with the PingID SDK. Plus an offline MFA mode allows users to authenticate locally without an Internet connection. Regardless of where you need MFA, rest assured that PingID had been built with fast deployments in mind.

  • User Self-service

    Improve productivity and lower helpdesk costs with a comprehensive set of user self-service capabilities. PingID allows your users to add new mobile devices and select from multiple secondary authentication methods if their primary method or device is unavailable. Self-service can also be provided for registration and enrollment, updating and unpairing the PingID mobile application, pairing to new organizations and sending event logs when troubleshooting is required.

  • Branding

    The user experience often begins with authentication, so PingID offers multiple opportunities to brand and customize this important step in the user journey. The native mobile application, desktop application, user notifications and registration and enrollment screens are all customizable to your organization's brand can be localized to your organization’s geographic footprint.

  • Rapid Deployment

    Easily implement cloud-delivered MFA in minutes for many common use cases like MFA for Office 365 and VPN access. No more time spent setting up a local, on-premises MFA footprint or issuing hard tokens. You can also integrate PingID with Azure AD, AD FS, VPN or our authentication authority, PingFederate, in just minutes. And centralized administration for MFA within PingID means that managing MFA to these various integrations will be easy. With PingID, you can quickly add strong authentication while maintaining a streamlined user experience.

Adaptive MFA uses a variety of risk and contextual factors to keep users and enterprises more productive and secure. With PingID, you can apply MFA to specific applications or based on the group membership of certain users. You can leverage contextual data such as device posture, geolocation, IP address and time since the last authentication to allow users to conduct low-value transactions without interruption, and you can prompt MFA during high-value transactions on untrusted networks and devices. With PingID, more security actually means a better experience—and happier users.

PingID for Enterprise Hybrid IT Environments, mfa
how it solves it


Today’s enterprises prioritize cloud-first initiatives. But the reality is that large enterprises still have many existing on-premises applications that can’t easily move to the cloud. To effectively secure all of the applications in your hybrid IT environment and cloud transition, your enterprise needs an adaptive MFA solution that supports both on-premises and multi-cloud environments. PingID integrates with Azure AD and AD FS to provide seamless security for a broad range of Microsoft- and non-Microsoft-based applications and services, which helps you quickly realize the value of Azure AD in your enterprise.

Busy customers don’t want to download an additional third-party MFA application, and using SMS or email as your only second factor can present security vulnerabilities. With the PingID mobile SDK, you can balance security and convenience for customers by embedding advanced MFA functionality directly into your own iOS or Android mobile apps. Mobile devices with your app installed can leverage unique device identifiers to become a secure, trusted device for that customer. Now, with custom push notifications from your own app, customers can approve high-value transactions, web authentications and much more. Plus, the SDK supports backup MFA factors to provide customers with a secure and convenient user experience.

the proof



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.”
