DENVER - Ping Identity is teaming with Virginia-based Criterion Systems in a pilot program to help make consumer online shopping more secure and convenient, Ping announced.

The program will use Ping's Cloud Identity Management platform in the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC) pilot awarded to Criterion by the U.S. Department of Commerce.

"We live in an amazing time," said Andre Durand, Ping CEO. "The breadth of consumer services and transactions available online is endless, and when it comes to securing these transactions, identity is the new perimeter.

"Ping Identity was founded on the belief that identities hold great power and require great responsibility. We help companies and public sector organizations ensure that they handle identities securely. Our role in this pilot project is to be the 'identity bridge' that connects with other parts of the identity ecosystem to ensure that transactions are secure while delivering the convenience and privacy online (that) citizens deserve."

The Criterion team includes ID/DataWeb, AOL Corp., LexisNexis, Risk Solutions, Experian, Ping Identity Corp., CA Technologies, PacificEast, Wave Systems Corp., Internet2 Consortium/In-Common Federation and Fixmo Inc.
