See why Ping Identity is positioned as a Leader in the 2020 Magic Quadrant for Access Management for the fourth year in a row and scored the highest for workforce and customer access management use cases in the 2020 Critical Capabilities for Access Management Report.
Right now, businesses around the world find themselves in the midst of transformative change, brought on by the pandemic-initiated explosion of work from home and digital-first customer interactions. Many are turning to identity and access management (IAM) solutions to serve as the foundation of security and user convenience for customers, employees and partners during this time of significant change.
In these times, when you are evaluating IAM providers to lean on, how can you be sure of what matters most?
You need a partner with the ability to execute on your behalf. And that’s why we are pleased to be positioned highest in Ability to Execute in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Access Management. This means that Ping Identity has demonstrated strong market responsiveness, that our products are feature rich and mature and can adapt to changing requirements, and that we have a large, satisfied customer base.
The biggest takeaway from Gartner’s 2020 reports: the need to deploy or modernize access management has never been more critical.
But the proof is in the pudding, right? Well, in this case the pudding is the complementary report called the The Gartner 2020 Critical Capabilities for Access Management. In addition to the Magic Quadrant for Access Management, Gartner provides guidance and scoring for the specific “critical capabilities” an access management solution must provide. The report is often overlooked by the more heavily marketed Magic Quadrant, but it serves an equally important role for identity buyers and evaluators.
According to Gartner, “a Critical Capabilities document is a comparative analysis that scores competing products or services against a set of critical differentiators identified by Gartner. It shows you which products or services are a best fit in various use cases to provide you actionable advice on which products/services you should add to your vendor shortlists for further evaluation.” In other words, the Magic Quadrant report provides an overall view of how vendors stack up in terms of their “completeness of vision” and “ability to execute,” while the Critical Capabilities report zooms into vendors’ scoring with regards to specific use cases.
