PingAccess is designed to embrace standards and avoid vendor lock-in. It uses a JSON Web Token (JWT) to maintain session information and leverages OpenID Connect for user authentication. PingFederate maintains session revocation lists and provides dynamic attribute fulfillment based on these tokens, so user sessions and entitlements are always current. PingAccess also supports signed JWT tokens giving enterprises a more secure and verifiable way to pass user information to back-end sites.
SCALABLE AND READY FOR THE CLOUD
The PingAccess gateway handles tens of thousands of transactions per second with advanced clustering and replication as well as intelligent rate limiting. Built-in load balancing allows PingAccess to distribute requests across multiple back-end servers, reducing network complexity and infrastructure costs. PingAccess is supported on standard operating systems deployed on bare metal or in virtual environments.
