Ping Identity selected to provide SSO and MFA for cyber risk firm Coalfire
Coalfire selected Ping Identity to meet its stringent security requirements and enable its employees, 40 percent of whom operate in mobile environments, to seamlessly authenticate from multiple devices. It looked for a robust federated SSO solution that is easy to administer and protects employee and customer data, according to the announcement.
“Ping Identity provides seamless, convenient access to Office 365 and the tools that our mobile workforce needs,” said Robert L. Flores, CIO, Coalfire. “The feedback from employees has been very consistent. They no longer have to manage various bookmarks for their SaaS applications, but instead have one-click access to the tools they need. This is security made simple, which we consider a win-win.”
Ping Identity is supporting Coalfire’s move to an agile, cloud-first strategy with PingFederate, PingOne, and PingID. Employees of Coalfire now have one-click access to more than 30 applications after the company migrated off of on-premise servers and Microsoft Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) and implemented advanced authentication scenarios for mission-critical applications like Box and Office 365.
The global MFA market will grow by 15 percent CAGR to $17.76 billion by 2025, boosted by advances in biometric technologies, according to a recent report from Grand View Research.
