Built for enterprise, it integrates with diverse user directories and third-party authentication sources while supporting current and past versions of identity standards like SAML, WS-Federation, WS-Trust, OAuth and OpenID Connect. And it can be deployed on-premises or in the cloud so you can support today’s needs and future-proof your business for tomorrow’s requirements.

Identity Federation 

Built for Enterprise

As an authentication authority, PingFederate provides policy-driven adaptive authentication by aggregating user and device context to centralize control over authentication and SSO. Authentication adapters and selectors allow PingFederate to leverage third-party authentication sources and multiple authentication options, depending on user and device context, and also to dynamically discover a user’s identity provider.


To further extend access to resources, PingFederate can also manipulate, mask and provision identity attributes to a diverse range of service providers. Extensive administrative APIs allow enterprises to develop self-service portals to accelerate the implementation of identity services in new applications. All of these capabilities allow PingFederate to operate as a versatile identity federation hub, providing secure access to any authorized resource for every trusted user, no matter where identities are stored or what authentication type is required.

Intuitive Customer Experiences

Customers interact with brands using a variety of channels and devices. They won’t tolerate friction or having to use separate sets of credentials to register or sign on to your digital properties. Unlike employees who are provisioned, customers must be able to self-register and sign on in a way that’s both convenient and secure. If they can’t, you risk losing their business to a competitor.

To provide more intuitive customer experiences, PingFederate provides consistent sign-on and registration experiences across channels, with out-of-the-box templates for user registration and profile management. There are also social and third-party login features, including account linking capabilities to help you augment your customers’ user profiles. PingFederate ensures that users can always access your digital properties with customizable self-service password reset and account unlocking workflows.

Automation in a Hybrid IT World

You can deploy PingFederate in your own datacenter or in private clouds to support hybrid IT environments. This provides flexibility to enterprises who prefer the control and customization possible from a single-tenant implementation of PingFederate in their private cloud, instead of a multi-tenant IDaaS approach. PingFederate also supports adaptive clustering, which can be orchestrated in cloud environments to provide auto-scaling, helping to accommodate fluctuating demand and minimize costs.

Equinix Boosts Employee Productivity With SSO


Equinix has a large diversity of applications, and the number of passwords and logins was getting in the way of mobile employee productivity. In addition, the time and cost to add new applications was much more than the company needed to remain competitive.



After implementing PingFederate, 56% of employees accessed applications through SSO on day one. And in just a few weeks, Equinix discovered that their employees were saving hundreds of hours in time by not dealing with logins and passwords. The flexible federation server allowed them to connect all of their mission-critical apps, even legacy apps.
