New Product Bundle from Ping Identity Accelerates Cloud MFA and SSO Adoption for Enterprises

May 16, 2019

DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 16, 2019--

Ping Identity, the leader in Identity Defined Security, today announced a cloud-based multi-factor authentication (MFA) and single sign-on (SSO) bundle, delivering security from identity-based attacks. Available today for a free 30-day trial, customers can protect applications, data and employees from pervasive security threats centered around phishing attacks, stolen credentials, and more.

Organizations want ease of use, fast integrations and the ability to easily grow without needing to switch vendors as they mature. Ping’s cloud MFA and SSO bundle directly addresses this market need, with more than 2.5 million unique monthly users for the cloud MFA solution alone. The solution joins the rest of Ping’s product portfolio, which is used by more than 50% of the Fortune 100 and secures over two billion identities globally across the Ping customer base.

Reducing the Barrier to Proven Security Tactics
Identity has become the most common vulnerability that hackers seek to exploit. While single sign-on solutions remain a high priority to increase user productivity and enterprise security, the surface area for cyber threats has expanded and attack methods have evolved. With these considerations, its equally important for customers to implement additional security for sensitive resources, high-value transactions and other elevated risk scenarios using multi-factor authentication.

In Ping’s 2018 State of Enterprise IT Infrastructure & Security survey, it was revealed that 90% of respondents trust MFA as an effective security control to protect identity data in public clouds, yet only 60% of organizations have formally adopted it. The MFA and SSO bundle is specifically designed to help overcome these inherent challenges in MFA adoption by minimizing associated burdens, while also providing seamless end user experiences and best-in-class solutions.

Providing Advanced Features for an Affordable Price
Ping’s new cloud MFA and SSO bundle helps enable fast and seamless integration of MFA for enterprises. Customers can benefit from the following features and functionality:

“Ping Identity is committed to providing the strongest security possible for enterprises. The cloud MFA and SSO bundle delivers on this promise, while also maintaining a high-value user experience,” said Andre Durand, CEO, Ping Identity. “Organizations can benefit from the streamlined adoption process, pain-free management and cost-effective model, as it addresses the growing necessity for strong MFA and SSO.”
