New Product Bundle from Ping Identity Accelerates Cloud MFA and SSO Adoption for Enterprises




[May 16, 2019]













Ping
Identity
, the leader in Identity Defined Security, today announced a
cloud-based multi-factor authentication (MFA (NewsAlert)) and single sign-on (SSO)
bundle, delivering security from identity-based attacks. Available today
for a free
30-day trial
, customers can protect applications, data and employees
from pervasive security threats centered around phishing attacks, stolen
credentials, and more.


Organizations want ease of use, fast integrations and the ability to
easily grow without needing to switch vendors as they mature. Ping’s
cloud MFA and SSO bundle directly addresses this market need, with more
than 2.5 million unique monthly users for the cloud MFA solution alone.
The solution joins the rest of Ping’s product portfolio, which is used
by more than 50% of the Fortune 100 and secures over two billion
identities globally across the Ping customer base.


Reducing the Barrier to Proven Security Tactics
Identity has
become the most common vulnerability that hackers seek to exploit. While
single sign-on solutions remain a high priority to increase user
productivity and enterprise security, the surface area for cyber threats
has expanded and attack methods have evolved. With these considerations,
its equally important for customers to implement additional security for
sensitive resources, high-value transactions and other elevated risk
scenarios using multi-factor authentication.


In Ping’s 2018 State
of Enterprise IT Infrastructure & Security
survey, it was
revealed that 90% of respondents trust MFA as an effective security
control to protect identity data in public clouds, yet only 60% of organizations have formally adopted it. The MFA and SSO bundle is
specifically designed to help overcome these inherent challenges in MFA
adoption by minimizing associated burdens, while also providing seamless
end user experiences and best-in-class solutions.



Providing Advanced Features for an Affordable Price
Ping’s
new cloud MFA and SSO bundle helps enable fast and seamless integration
of MFA for enterprises. Customers can benefit from the following
features and functionality:


  • Effortless integration: Integrations take place rapidly, making
    the transition seamless with existing infrastructures.

  • Straightforward administration: With a centralized console and
    multiple self-service options, administration is easier than ever.

  • Advanced access policies: Contextual policies-typically only
    found in the premium, high-priced MFA solutions in the market-grant
    administrators flexibility to help balance security and convenience
    for end users.

  • Covering for many popular use cases: The cloud MFA and SSO
    bundle was built for easy deployment across popular use cases,
    including SaaS, cloud apps, VPN, Microsoft (NewsAlert) Azure, and more.


“Ping Identity is committed to providing the strongest security possible
for enterprises. The cloud MFA and SSO bundle delivers on this promise,
while also maintaining a high-value user experience,” said Andre Durand,
CEO, Ping Identity. “Organizations can benefit from the streamlined
adoption process, pain-free management and cost-effective model, as it
addresses the growing necessity for strong MFA and SSO.”
