Ping Identity launches cloud identity management service
New service from Ping Identity offers single sign-on access to cloud applications
Identity management company Ping Identity has launched what it claims is the world’s first multiplexed identity service in the cloud.
Dubbed PingOne, the service allows businesses to implement single sign-on access to their cloud-based applications and gives IT one place to centralise control and automate identity management.
It said that the service was the only one of its kind to allow application providers as well as end users with complete tier 1 SSO and multiplexed (one-to-many) capabilities.
The company said the service takes complexity out of using standard identity federation protocols, including SAML, OpenID, OAuth, and the SCIM provisioning standard. “Businesses with existing SAML infrastructure can cut administration costs up to 90 per cent by making one assertion to PingOne to manage all of their growing customer and application connections,” the company said in a statement.
Andre Durand, CEO of Ping Identity said that the product can be set up "n hours and is completely self-service. The service doesn't replicate Active Directory and it doesn't store passwords. It's 100 percent based on open standards, which is the most secure way to do identity in the cloud.”
According to Gregg Kreizman, research director, Enterprise Security and Privacy at analysts Gartner, enterprises continue to adopt SaaS applications, and core identity and access management functions must be provided for these SaaS and on-premises applications in an increasingly hybrid world.
“Standard identity protocols will play an important role in supporting these hybrid requirements, and standards are evolving. Enterprises and application service providers will increasingly seek identity services vendors who can provide easy-to-deploy, technologically agile, economically appealing identity services.”
PingOne offers two subscription-pricing options. PingOne application provider services starts at $5,000 (£3,100) per application per year. PingOne cloud access services start from $5 (£3) per user per month.
Ping Identity will begin migrating beta customers to the PingOne service today. PingOne will be available for new business and trials on 10 April.
