Ping Identity updates software products, reduces implementation and deployment times
Ping Identity announced it has updated its suite of identity and access management software products including PingFederate, PingAccess and PingDirectory with new features that enable enterprises to meet multiple business needs and deliver a more frictionless user experience.
“We continue to invest in product capabilities that make it easier to manage user identities in a hybrid, multi-cloud world,” explains Loren Russon, vice president, product management at Ping Identity. “As the market for identity security evolves and enterprises continue to demand cutting-edge products, Ping Identity is committed to making industry-leading enhancements without sacrificing the user experience.”
The updated authentication policies in PingFederate make it easier for administrators to manage policies for improved end-user experiences through passwordless authentication. New standards help enable the secure authorization of devices that don’t have keyboards and browsers and additional features reduce administrative burden with enhancements to host multiple branded domains.
PingAccess now enables enterprises to use OpenID Connect to bridge from the cloud-based PingOne for Customers to legacy applications in their private cloud or data center. Native support for PingOne for Customers allows enterprise administrators to more easily manage hybrid environments of SaaS, legacy applications and APIs. There is also a tighter integration between PingAccess and PingFederate that improves the performance and exchange of data.
PingDirectory feature enhancements include a new REST API for identity data that lets enterprise application developers use the latest programming languages and popular open source libraries enabling them to quickly add more applications with more app features. Other features include new search engine intelligence and integrations with Tivoli Directory Server and Microsoft Identity Manager
Reports surfaced late last year that Ping is preparing for an IPO with a valuation of up to $3 billion.
