Ping said the announcement reinforces the long-standing relationship between Ping Identity and California-based Microsoft, especially as the two organizations continue their collaboration to include PingFederate as one of the federation providers to Azure Active Directory (Azure AD).

“We’re delighted that Microsoft has invited Ping Identity to be a part of this new association,” said Brian Bell, Ping’s chief marketing officer.

“The program will facilitate a faster release of our joint solutions to the commercial market and generate awareness of innovative technology enhancements, such as the integration between PingFederate and Azure AD Connect, as well as the existing integration between PingAccess and Azure AD.”

PingFederate provides user authentication and standards-based single sign-on capabilities, the company said. It provides a modern identity and access management solution for large enterprise that can be deployed on-premises or in a private cloud.

Ping said many customers are using the solution with Azure to secure applications across their hybrid IT environments.
