DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 31, 2018--Ping Identity, the leader in Identity Defined Security, today announced that HP Inc. has been named the winner of its 2018 Customer Identity Excellence Awards Program in the “Modern IAM Pioneer” category. The Modern IAM Pioneer is leading the charge on modernizing its legacy systems, and connecting powerful new identity and access management (IAM) capabilities to existing investments. BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee also was recognized for its achievements with a “runner up” honor. The awards were announced at Identiverse, which took place last month in Boston.

Winner: HP Inc.

Earning the “Modern IAM Pioneer” award, HP consolidated a fragmented user base of more than 150 million identities with no downtime using the Ping Identity Platform. It migrated all of its customer and partner identities under a single IAM system, developing a common interface for identity registration and login across all HP online experiences. More than 100 HP business applications now use HP ID to engage customers and partners globally from the cloud in a secure, accessible environment.

Runner Up: BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee

BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee, the largest health benefit plan in its state, was honored for modernizing the entire BlueCross BlueShield identity infrastructure. As its business has grown across states with new services, the expanding diversity and sheer number of identities to manage quickly uncovered the limitations of its legacy identity systems.

“In today’s digital world, a seamless user experiences is crucial. Part of this means having the right identity and access management solutions in place, and these companies have done just that,” said Andre Durand, CEO of Ping Identity. “We’re delighted to recognize HP Inc. and BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee for driving advancements in the way organizations should leverage enterprise-grade IAM solutions.”
