DENVER -- Ping Identity today announced updates to its software products, including PingFederate, PingAccess and PingDirectory.Ping_logoUSE

The new versions improve the user and administrative experience, while also meeting modern enterprise needs to operate quickly and purposefully, the company said.

In today’s digital world, enterprise IT and security professionals are increasingly seeking identity and access management (IAM) services to provide secure and positive customer experiences. However, they often don’t have the budget allocation necessary to make major investments in IAM.

Ping Identity’s new cloud software features help enable enterprises to meet multiple business needs, taking ease of use and cost efficiency into consideration. This is in addition to providing enterprises with the ability to reduce administrative burdens and deliver more frictionless user experiences.

“We continue to invest in product capabilities that make it easier to manage user identities in a hybrid, multi-cloud world,” said Loren Russon, Ping’s VP of product management.

“As the market for identity security evolves and enterprises continue to demand cutting-edge products, Ping Identity is committed to making industry-leading enhancements without sacrificing the user experience.”

Ping said the updated authentication policies in PingFederate make it easier for administrators to manage policies for improved end-user experiences through passwordless authentication.

New standards help enable the secure authorization of devices that don't have keyboards and browsers, Ping said. Additional features reduce administrative burden with enhancements to host multiple branded domains.

PingAccess shortens enterprises’ implementation timelines and lowers deployment efforts. It also provides a more streamlined user experience and architecture options that are key to their Web Access Management (WAM) Modernization projects.

PingDirectory feature enhancements help manage identity data moving at enterprise-level speed and reducing administrative burden.

“Ping has been a true partner in our success. Its integrated solution fulfills the executive mandate to improve our member experience, while also adhering to security requirements,” said Tim Skinner, manager of Cyber Security, BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee.
