Free Cloud Identity Service Delivers Single Sign-On In Minutes

PingOne for Groups is a free subscription for up to five applications and 50 users
DENVER, Colo. – Oct. 9, 2013 -- Ping Identity®, The Identity Security Company&trade, today announced PingOne for Groups. Built on the PingOneÒ cloud identity management service, PingOne for Groups is simple enough for small- and medium- sized organizations, and secure enough for enterprise departmental single sign-on (SSO) needs. PingOne for Groups is a free subscription for up to five applications and 50 users. It provides secure SSO in minutes, and offers a seamless upgrade path to PingOne for Business or PingOne for Enterprise.

PingOne for Groups is the only industry solution that helps organizations of all sizes do SSO right by delivering access to thousands of applications from any device using the right level of control and security at the right time.

According to Andras Cser, Forrester Research VP and principal analyst, "Many small and medium-size businesses (SMBs) know they can't afford to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to hire experienced IAM pros for the care and feeding of an on-premises IAM system. Even large enterprises are considering eliminating on-premises IAM systems because of large licensing and support costs and long implementation times." *

PingOne for Groups manages employee, customer and partner identities. By making it simple, secure and free, Ping Identity is helping any size company realize the time and cost saving benefits of SSO. And, because Ping Identity is well known for delivering standards-based federation and access management to global enterprise organizations, customers can be confident PingOne will scale as their business grows.

"For too long identity management has been exclusively for large enterprises with the budget to manage complex and expensive infrastructure projects," said Roger Oberg, VP of marketing and product management, Ping Identity. "Today, every business relies on cloud apps. PingOne for Groups brings enterprise-grade identity management to businesses of all sizes so anyone can have secure SSO to popular apps like Salesforce, Google, Dropbox, Office365 and WebEx."
