Ping Identity Launches PingOne

Enables tier 1 Single Sign-On (SSO) access to all cloud applications

London – 20th March, 2012 — Ping Identity®, the cloud identity security leader, today unveiled PingOne, the world’s first multiplexed identity switch in the Cloud. One connection to PingOne provides businesses the convenience of tier 1 Single Sign-On (SSO) access to all of their cloud applications and gives IT one place to centralise control and automate identity management. One connection to PingOne equips cloud application providers to offer tier 1 SSO to all of their customers. For security conscious businesses, tier 1 requires exclusively standards-based, federated SSO protocols such as SAML, OAuth, and OpenID with zero tolerance for storing passwords or managing duplicate end-user accounts in the cloud.

PingOne is the only on-demand cloud identity management service to equip application providers as well as end users with complete tier 1 SSO and multiplexed (one-to-many) capabilities. With one connection, PingOne allows IT to securely manage access to all cloud applications in a central user directory, such as Microsoft Active Directory. This eliminates all but one secure set of employee credentials. Similarly, application providers can use one simple REST API process to enable secure, standards-based SSO in less than 30 minutes.

“Enterprises asked us for a better way to connect their workforce to the cloud,” said Andre Durand, CEO of Ping Identity. “PingOne is the answer. It can be set up in hours and is completely self-service. The service doesn't replicate Active Directory and it doesn't store passwords. It's 100 percent based on open standards, which is the most secure way to do identity in the cloud.”

PingOne: Identity federation as a cloud service

PingOne is an open network that takes the complexity out of using standard identity federation protocols, including SAML, OpenID, OAuth, and the SCIM provisioning standard. Businesses with existing SAML infrastructure can cut administration costs up to 90 percent by making one assertion to PingOne to manage all of their growing customer and application connections.

For PingFederate customers, PingOne is designed to extend that trusted federated identity architecture into the cloud. One connection from PingFederate to PingOne enables a multiplexed connection to applications and business partners faster and more easily than ever before. Together, as part of Ping Identity’s simple, proven, and secure platform for cloud identity management, they address the broadest set of identity security needs. From consumers and business customers to partners and employees, PingFederate and PingOne integrate with more than 30 different on-premise identity technologies using industry standard protocols in the private, public, or hybrid format that suits the business best.

Designed with elegant simplicity

“With guidance from our corporate and government customers, as well as our extensive SaaS partnerships, we designed something with ‘Fisher-Price’ simplicity in mind but hardened for our most rigorous customers,” said Jonathan Buckley, Ping Identity vice president of on-demand business. “With each feature and function, we took the complexity and cost out of the equation to bring the benefits of federated identity to the majority of the business market.”

PingOne offers two subscription-pricing options. PingOne application provider services starts at $5,000 per application per year. PingOne cloud access services is available for as little as $5 per user per month.

PingOne is built on Internet-scale architecture and is globally load balanced for very low latency response time on any continent. All operations are monitored 7X24X365 in the PingOne Network Operations Centre.

Ping Identity will begin migrating beta customers to the PingOne service today. PingOne will be available for new business and trials on April 10, 2012. Visit www.pingone.com.
