SAN FRANCISCO and DENVER – April 16, 2018 – Ping Identity, the leader in Identity Defined Security, today announced its participation in the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association, where members can create more integrated solutions for customers that provide greater protection and detect attacks more quickly. This announcement reinforces the long-standing relationship between Ping Identity and Microsoft, especially as the two organisations 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, chief marketing officer, Ping Identity. “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. It provides a modern identity and access management solution for large enterprise that can be deployed on-premises or in a private cloud. Many customers are using the solution with Azure to secure applications across their hybrid IT environments.

Email fraud is nothing new, but online criminals have become ever more-effective at spoofing their identities to trick employees into sending them money. The Australian Centre for Cyber Security (ACSC) recorded losses of over $20M to business email compromise (BEC) attacks last year alone, up 230 percent over the previous year – and the full amount is certain to be much larger.

No matter how robust your security, or how diligent your employees, network credentials are a free pass for cybercriminals. This is mostly because employees are relied upon for their own password management. And with more than 4.8 billion sets of stolen credentials said to be available online, odds are that at least a few of your employees’ user IDs and passwords are just waiting to be used by unscrupulous outsiders. Are you ready to stop them?
