Ping Identity integrates its multi-factor authentication solution with Microsoft Azure AD
Ping Identity has announced the integration of its PingID multi-factor authentication (MFA) product with Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) and Microsoft Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) to allow enterprises to secure and quickly move applications to Azure AD.
The Ping Identity Platform is designed to support hybrid IT environments, providing flexibility for organizations choosing PingID to secure hybrid or cloud-only environments, according to the announcement. PingID also provides adaptive multi-factor authentication with Active Directory to help organizations tailor authentication policies. The company also says that giving users the ability to add and choose from multiple different authentication methods and devices reduces support calls.
Ping also connects Microsoft and other infrastructures to make Office 365 and Azure AD easier to use, more secure, and productive, with a consistent user experience.
“The integration with Microsoft is vital for enterprises that rely on Office 365 and the Microsoft identity structure of Azure AD and on-premises Active Directory,” said Loren Russon, vice president, product management, Ping Identity. “Using PingID, enterprises can offer this contextual second-factor authentication, regardless of where the initial authentication occurs.”
Ping Identity was selected by cyber risk management company Coalfire to support its move to a cloud-first strategy with single sign-on and MFA capabilities.
