DENVER -- Ping Identity, a leader in Identity Defined Security, announced the public preview of PingOne for Customers, a cloud-based Identity as a Service (IDaaS) offering built for the developer community that provides API-based identity services for customer-facing applications.
Ping said the new product can help large enterprises launch apps faster, replace custom identity services that are difficult to maintain, and facilitate the transition from on-premises deployments to cloud-hosted services.
By making it easy to securely authenticate end users, PingOne for Customers frees up developers’ time to focus on delivering business value faster, Ping said.
PingOne for Customers is designed to make it faster and easier to embed registration, login, profile management, multi-factor authentication (MFA) and other cloud-based identity services directly into customer-facing applications, the company said.
The solution offers developer-friendly APIs, extensive documentation, and a dedicated community to help ensure ease of use as developer teams get up and running.
Organizations are embarking on a broader range of cloud-first digital business initiatives, yet struggle with the integration and support of new cloud and SaaS offerings with their existing identity infrastructures.
Ping said PingOne for Customers addresses these needs and includes broad support for identity standards such as OAuth, OpenID Connect, and SAML. It also offers hybrid IT capabilities, delegated administration, and addresses other enterprise requirements at the onset to provide diverse implementation and deployment options.
Ping said integrations across the broader Ping Intelligent Identity Platform will help current enterprise customers maintain a seamless path to the cloud.
“The developer community wants to build applications and just leverage a service for securing login and registration, versus creating the capabilities themselves in their app,” said Steve Shoaff, Ping’s chief product officer.
“PingOne for Customers saves time and valuable resources by greatly simplifying how developers integrate identity and access management services into their application development process.
“By providing easy to integrate identity services, developers can focus on other high-value work and their enterprise customers can rest assured their applications are secure.”
