WHAT IT SOLVES

SIMPLE, SECURE SSO 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. Single sign-on (SSO) allows users to sign on once using one set of credentials, giving them one-click access to all your applications from anywhere. This increases productivity for your employees and enhances the sign-on experience for your customers. SSO also reduces risky practices like password reuse, so it strengthens your security posture and reduces password reset calls to your help desk. It’s time for SSO, and no one offers more flexibility to meet your enterprise’s needs than Ping.

ANY USER. ANY APP. 

ONE AUTHENTICATION AUTHORITY.

Organizations want user identification and single sign-on performed in a secure, controlled and centralized manner across their diverse set of devices, networks, domains and platforms. This improves security and user convenience while lowering costs. An authentication authority serves as the single mechanism through which user identities are confirmed within an organization. To achieve this, enterprises must rely on a solution that can support all use cases and identity types, including those with high levels of complexity, risk and user assurance.

CHOOSE YOUR IDENTITY PROVIDER

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. You need an extremely versatile federation solution that’s designed to work with any identity provider (IdP) and easily accepts SAML or OpenID Connect tokens for SSO into SaaS and homegrown applications. Out-of-the-box integrations are another way to help you connect to your existing identity infrastructure to make sure all users can benefit from SSO.

FAST AND SIMPLE

INTEGRATIONS

Enterprises have to support many applications that their employees and customers use, such as a third-party customer loyalty app, SharePoint and Office 365. There are also web servers like Apache and Java, MDM solutions like AirWatch and MobileIron and legacy IAM providers that need to be considered. Providing SSO to all of these applications can be made simpler with out-of-the-box integrations. And you’ll have SSO access to your applications in hours or days, not weeks or months—even those hard-to-integrate internal applications.

SELF-SERVICE IDENTITY

You already know that identity and access management (IAM) is a valuable business driver for your enterprise. But enabling self-service application integration for your business application teams allows resource-constrained IAM teams to do even more with less. A central operating portal for all IAM services delivers speed and agility to admins across your enterprise through self-service on-boarding of applications and consumption of centralized identity services.

SSO 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. Choosing an SSO solution with support for modern identity standards, from SAML and OpenID Connect for web and mobile SSO, to WS-Federation and WS-Trust for Windows environments, will help you meet the requirements for a wide range of identity use cases and diverse user populations.
