Ping Identity was founded in 2002 by industry veterans committed to
simplifying the way in which digital identities are used and managed. The
company has emerged as a market leader in the Identity Management industry
through its unique dedication to delivering technologies and services that
enable organizations to improve security, expand collaboration with trading
partners and reduce the burden of regulatory compliance.
The Ping Identity product family enables a full array of authentication
services, including federated single sign-on, identity verification, and
access control for a broad variety of both internal and external web
applications and web services.
The identity federation technology provided by the Ping Identity product
suite is designed to improve customer security, enable easier collaboration
with trading partners, and reduce the burden of regulatory compliance.
Because of the highly disparate security requirements of the various
components that make up distributed application architectures, a new
approach is required for managing user identity verification, authentication
and access control.
Ping Identity's technologies and services deliver results that exceed the
expectations of some of the most admired companies in the world, including
American Express, Boeing, Cisco, New York Life and Pulte Homes.
PingLogin is a next-generation user
authentication and single sign-on framework for online services and Web
applications. With a focus on flexibility and extensibility, PingLogin provides
a foundation for organizations to refactor their approach to consumer
authentication by centralizing authentication and eliminating vendor lock-in
while reducing integration and on-going maintenance costs.
Open and Standards-Based: Wherever possible PingLogin supports open
standards instead of proprietary protocols. Additionally, certain product
modules are available through shared source and open source licenses.
Extensible and Flexible: A flexible set of APIs gives customers a
robust framework for integrating PingLogin into existing Web applications
and environments. As business and security requirements change,
organizations should be free to add or modify functionality and not be bound
to the release cycles of the product.
High Performance: Consumer applications authenticate millions of
users daily. Consequently, lightweight mechanisms to support authentication,
session management and single-sign on are critical to meet consumers’
expectations for response time and performance.
Focus on Authentication: As a best-of-breed solution for consumer
authentication, PingLogin retains a separation between authentication and
Web Services Integration: While LDAP binding is supported, the
PingLogin architecture assumes that Web services will be one of the primary
mechanisms used by customers to integrate with external authentication
providers and identity stores. Therefore, an extensive API set is provided
for accessing identity stores and performing user attribute retrieval.
Simplicity: Throughout the product, there is always a simple
implementation model for basic use cases that can be built upon as necessary
to address differing (and sometimes opposing) business and technical
is the industry-leading federated identity server for enabling single sign-on to
online services for employees, customers and business partners. The only
standalone federated identity server, PingFederate integrates and coexists with
existing Identity Management deployments. As a result, enterprise-wide identity
federation is achievable without extensive upgrades to Identity Management
