DENVER, Co. -- Ping Identity Corporation announced today that PingFederate 4 is now available for free download from www.pingidentity.com. PingFederate 4 is the first commercially available federated identity server to ship with tightly integrated support for WS-Federation, SAML 1.0, SAML 1.1 and SAML 2.0 single sign-on functionality.
Every company wants to optimize business processes and increase collaboration with partners and customers, said Fran Howarth, Hurwitz Group. For many organizations, federated identity reduces redundant account maintenance, improves administrative efficiency, increases security and can even bring about new revenue-generating opportunities.
One such organization is Allscripts Healthcare Solutions, Inc. Over the past 18 months, more and more pharmaceutical companies tell us that they are interested in Single Sign-on. PingFederate enables us to provide our clients with a plug-and-play component and, unlike our competition, immediately offer SSO, said Andy Michaelis, Manager of Software Development, Allscripts Healthcare Solutions, Inc. We never know exactly where our organization is going to grow or how we will end up using SSO for physicians and pharmaceutical clients. Ping Identity supports our current needs and will grow and expand with us as our business evolves.
PingFederate 4 is the result of feedback we received from dozens of Fortune 1000 customers engaged in production federation leveraging PingFederate. It offers the most advanced features for configuration, administration and integration on the market, said Andre Durand, CEO, Ping Identity. In addition to these advanced tools, PingFederate 4 now supports every federation standard customers will require as they engage both existing and new federation partners.
