One Identity, a proven leader in identity-centred security, announced a partnership with Ping Identity, the Intelligent Identity solution for the enterprise, to provide end-to-end identity management strategies and strengthen access security and control. The partnership enables customers to combine the power of Ping Identity's access management technology with One Identity’s identity governance and administration (IGA) technology – two critically important elements to achieving an identity-centred security strategy organisations need to combat today’s cyber threats.
According to LogicMonitor, while the growth of the cloud is irrefutable, more than one in four (27%) of enterprises’ workloads are expected to remain on-premises by the end of 2020, meaning hybrid environments will remain common at many organisations. Key to keeping these hybrid organisations secure is ensuring that all data and applications across both on-premises and cloud environments are accessed by the right users. However, a “user” today could be an employee, partner, contractor or supplier. The task of providing simplified, secure and compliant access to all classes of users coupled with the complexity inherent in a hybrid environment, can be problematic and time-consuming.
Customers can vastly improve both identity and access security and control, while reducing complexity and freeing up time for more strategic projects with the integration of One Identity and Ping Identity products. Customers can seamlessly integrate Ping Identity’s single sign-on (SSO), multi-factor authentication (MFA) and access management capabilities with One Identity Manager’s governance and identity administration, and the underlying accounts that access critical business systems, applications, databases, and SaaS services.
When combined, One Identity and Ping Identity provide the enterprise-level scalability and security required to protect users, data and applications from today’s cybersecurity threats while enabling regulatory compliance. The solutions will together strengthen security and provide an enhanced end user experience by providing the right access, to the right resources, at the right time. Key combined features include:
SSO and MFA to streamline and secure access
Complete visibility into users and their entitlements to mitigate risks
Data, applications and access governance across on-premises, hybrid and cloud environments
User access control from any device or location
Increased security with stronger authentication
Identity lifecycle and account correlation
Automated account provisioning, deprovisioning and workflows
Self-service access request and certifications
“One Identity has long admired our industry peer, Ping Identity, for its innovation and market leadership in authentication and access management,” said Darrell Long, vice president of product management, One Identity. “Joining forces to provide end-to-end identity and access management will greatly benefit our customers and accelerate their journey to achieve identity-centred security, the core of any effective enterprise security strategy.”
“With the immense acceleration of digital transformation, today’s enterprises are recognising identity is critical to securing anytime, anywhere work and require a solution to help deliver that seamless, mobile experience without sacrificing the security they need,” said Loren Russon, vice president of product management at Ping Identity. “At Ping Identity, we are committed to doing just that by simplifying the lives of our customers and guaranteeing the right people can securely access the right things across devices without friction. One Identity shares the same ethos and dedication to securing the modern enterprise, and we’re looking forward to collaborating together to provide identity-centred security strategies.”
“As a partner that works closely with One Identity and Ping Identity, we applaud both of the companies’ continued focus on bringing game-changing IGA and IAM solutions to market,” said Mike Thompson, managing partner at ICSynergy. “The combination of Ping Identity’s groundbreaking solutions for securing access to the digital enterprise and One Identity’s innovative identity-centred solutions will meet a growing demand among our client base for one-stop hybrid identity and access management solutions.”
“One Identity and Ping Identity are both critical partners to our business, as our customers increasingly seek to build IAM and IGA into the core of their security strategies,” said Andre Priebe, CTO at iC Consult Group “The two organisations joining forces will enable our customers to gain better visibility and control over the entire enterprise Identity landscape and across cloud, on premises and hybrid environments.”
