Ping Identity Announces PingAccess

Combines traditional Web access management with mobile and API access management

Los Angeles (Gartner IAM), Nov. 19, 2013 -- Ping Identity®, The Identity Security Company&trade, today announced a new generation identity gateway that will change the way customers use Web Access Management technologies. PingAccessä provides access for users, apps and devices by combining traditional web access management with mobile and API access management. The lightweight solution reduces deployment time from months to minutes, and easily integrates with the customer's existing SSO and identity systems.

"Traditional, proprietary WAM solutions do not address the new age where mobile and API access control is as important as web access management. Customers are paying the price. Expensive licensing models and time-intensive integrations are contrary to the idea of building a modern, connected business," said Patrick Harding, CTO, Ping Identity. "Customers want a single solution that is simple and secure, and addresses all their access control requirements for web, mobile and API-based applications. We're delivering this with PingAccess so our customers can concentrate on bigger IT initiatives."

PingAccess provides greater interoperability than traditional WAM solutions, as it can use standards-based web session management (JWT), authentication (OpenID Connect), and API access management (OAuth 2.0) for modern identity environments.

"Many organizations are seeking to leverage existing WAM products in order to exploit the API economy," said Charles Horton, senior director of identity and access management at information security consulting and integration services firm, FishNet Security. "We see PingAccess as an exciting next-generation WAM tool with the ability to address multiple use cases and provide strong integration options without some of the historic issues that have challenged our clients when achieving their enterprise-wide goals. With PingAccess, we believe our customers can achieve those goals without sacrificing security, functionality, or compliance."

PingAccess identity gateway manages user, application, and device access consistently. The standards-based identity gateway also works in concert with PingFederate to extend SSO inside and outside the enterprise. It grants privileges, enforces policies and tracks activity for complete visibility.
