Ping Identity offerings accelerates cloud MFA and SSO adoption

22 May 2019

Ping Identity has announced a cloud-based multi-factor authentication (MFA) and single sign-on (SSO) bundle, delivering security from identity-based attacks.

Available for a free 30-day trial, customers can protect applications, data and employees from pervasive security threats centred around phishing attacks, stolen credentials, and more. 

Organisations 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 aims to address this market need, with more than 2.5 million unique monthly users for the cloud MFA solution alone.
 
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 and 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 organisations have formally adopted it.

The MFA and SSO bundle is specifically designed to help overcome these inherent challenges in MFA adoption by minimising associated burdens, while also providing seamless end-user experiences and best-in-class solutions.
 
Advanced feature set

Ping’s new cloud MFA and SSO bundle helps enable seamless integration of MFA for enterprises.

Customers can benefit from the following features and functionality:

  • Quick integration: Integrations take place rapidly, making the transition seamless with existing infrastructures.
  • Straightforward administration: With a centralised 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 popular use cases: The cloud MFA and SSO bundle was built for easy deployment across popular use cases, including SaaS, cloud apps, VPN, Microsoft 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,” says Ping Identity CEO Andre Durand.
