PingID® is a multi-factor authentication (MFA) solution that balances secure access to applications with ease of use for the end user. It helps customers define and enforce authentication policies that are tailored to the needs of the enterprise. PingID adds strong authentication to PingOne®, PingFederate®, Secure Shell (SSH), Windows RDP or any RADIUS compliant VPN server.
HOW IT WORKS
When an administrator enables PingID, the user is prompted to walk through a selfregistration process to register their device. First, they install an application on their Apple or Android phone or tablet. Next, they scan a QR code or enter a pairing code to pair their device with PingID. Once registered, the device is ready for use. If the user does not have an Apple or Android device, they can elect to authenticate using one-time passwords (OTPs) that are sent via SMS, voice call, or email. Alternatively, they can utilize a Yubikey hard token or the Windows or Mac desktop applications. Alternately, the user can choose to register and authenticate with a YubiKey hard token.
