simple, secure access to your resources
Your employees, customers and partners want seamless access to their SaaS, mobile, cloud and enterprise applications. But security is an obvious concern. You’re not actually improving security with duplicate accounts, passwords, VPNs and multiple sign-ons. But you sure can frustrate users and decrease their productivity. Single sign-on (SSO) allows users to sign on once using one set of secure corporate credentials, giving them one-click access to all applications from anywhere. It’s time for SSO, and no one offers more flexibility to meet your enterprise’s needs than Ping.
Organizations want user identification performed in a secure, controlled and centralized manner across their diverse set of devices, networks, domains and platforms, which improves security and user convenience while lowering costs. As an authentication authority, we support all use cases and identity types, including those with high levels of complexity, risk and user assurance. Our adaptive authentication policies provide flexibility and control, and we collect and provide user identity and context data across diverse resources via open standards and proprietary adaptors, no matter if the resource is deployed as SaaS, on-premises or in the cloud.
OUR IdP OR YOURS?
Some enterprises choose to store their user identities in popular cloud platforms like Azure AD, and they want to authenticate their users on those platforms as well. The Ping Identity Platform is extremely versatile and designed to work with any standards-based identity provider (IdP), and it easily accepts SAML or OpenID Connect tokens for SSO into SaaS and internal applications. We also provide out-of-the-box integrations to a wide range of on-premises directory solutions, including those from Microsoft and Oracle, as well as PingDirectory. With Ping, you’re always in control to pick the IdP you’d like, whether on-premises or in the cloud, and change it as needed.
Identity-as-a-service (IDaaS) providers work well to connect employees to SaaS applications. But they fall short of enterprise requirements to orchestrate complex authentication use cases and business logic which leverage diverse contextual attributes and signals from multiple directories and third-party service providers. They also lack the ability to connect users to applications on older versions of open standards protocols and integrate quickly to legacy applications with integration kits and connectors. To support BYOD initiatives, enterprise requirements also commonly include integrations with MDM providers to ensure non-compliant devices aren’t able to access corporate resources. We help modern digital enterprises fulfill all of their federated SSO and authentication requirements to connect any user, on any device to any application.
Deploy quickly. integrate easily.
Ping solutions are built for enterprise, with a market-leading portfolio of integrations to popular software and SaaS applications such as Atlassian, Sharepoint and Office 365. We make it easy to enable SSO across your entire application portfolio with integration kits for Apache, Java, Microsoft IIS, .Net, Oracle Weblogic, IBM Websphere and more. You can easily integrate with existing IAM systems such as Active Directory or Azure AD, or legacy WAM systems from CA, Oracle, IBM or RSA. You can leverage device attributes with integrations to MDM providers like AirWatch, MobileIron and Microsoft InTune, and user attributes with integrations to directories from Ping, Microsoft and Oracle. And you’ll have SSO access to your applications in hours or days, not weeks or months—even including those hard-to-integrate internal applications.
built on open standards
Open standards are the basis for identity federation solutions to ensure a secure, future-proofed identity architecture that stands the test of time. They’re also critical to enabling interoperability between unique identity systems, web resources, organizations and vendors. At Ping, we offer the most comprehensive support for modern identity standards, from SAML and OpenID Connect for web and mobile SSO, to WS-Federation and WS-Trust for Windows environments. For securing APIs, OAuth is the preferred standard, which we support for both authentication and scoped authorization.

superior entertainment experience
The company wanted to expand its product offerings and improve personalization to grow its subscriptions. They needed to migrate their identity management services from a third-party provider to an in-house, centralized solution that could support single sign-on (SSO) and social login, as well as new mobile, multi-device TV services.
With the Ping Identity solution in place, customers experienced SSO and social login for fast, seamless authentication. The company can now speed new services to market and provide a personalized customer experience—all while reducing costs. High-volume scalability enables rapid access to shows, movies and live streams on multiple devices for millions of customers.
