Sydney — May 17, 2019 — Ping Identity, the leader in Identity Defined Security, today announced a cloud-based multi-factor authentication (MFA) and single sign-on (SSO) bundle, delivering security from identity-based attacks. Available today for a free 30-day trial, customers can protect applications, data and employees from pervasive security threats centered around phishing attacks, stolen credentials, and more.
Organisations want ease of use, fast integrations and the ability to easily grow without needing to switch vendors as they mature. Ping’s cloud MFA and SSO bundle directly addresses this market need, with more than 2.5 million unique monthly users for the cloud MFA solution alone. The solution joins the rest of Ping’s product portfolio, which is used by more than 50% of the Fortune 100 and secures over two billion identities globally across the Ping customer base.
Reducing the Barrier to Proven Security Tactics
Identity has become the most common vulnerability that hackers seek to exploit. While single sign-on solutions remain a high priority to increase user productivity and enterprise security, the surface area for cyber threats has expanded and attack methods have evolved. With these considerations, its equally important for customers to implement additional security for sensitive resources, high-value transactions and other elevated risk scenarios using multi-factor authentication.
In Ping’s 2018 State of Enterprise IT Infrastructure & Security survey, it was revealed that 90% of respondents trust MFA as an effective security control to protect identity data in public clouds, yet only 60% of organisations have formally adopted it. The MFA and SSO bundle is specifically designed to help overcome these inherent challenges in MFA adoption by minimising associated burdens, while also providing seamless end user experiences and best-in-class solutions.
Providing Advanced Features for an Affordable Price
Ping’s new cloud MFA and SSO bundle helps enable fast and seamless integration of MFA for enterprises. Customers can benefit from the following features and functionality:
- Effortless integration: Integrations take place rapidly, making the transition seamless with existing infrastructures.
- Straightforward administration: With a centralized console and multiple self-service options, administration is easier than ever.
- Advanced access policies: Contextual policies—typically only found in the premium, high-priced MFA solutions in the market—grant administrators flexibility to help balance security and convenience for end users.
- Covering for many popular use cases: The cloud MFA and SSO bundle was built for easy deployment across popular use cases, including SaaS, cloud apps, VPN, Microsoft Azure, and more
“Ping Identity is committed to providing the strongest security possible for enterprises. The cloud MFA and SSO bundle delivers on this promise, while also maintaining a high-value user experience,” said Andre Durand, CEO, Ping Identity. “Organisations can benefit from the streamlined adoption process, pain-free management and cost-effective model, as it addresses the growing necessity for strong MFA and SSO.”

Increasing mandates around the security of personal data have made encryption for every business. Australian businesses are leading the world in the use of encryption to protect backups, payment-related data, and laptops – and yet they still have a long way to go before encryption is both ubiquitous and manageable.
If your last access-control update was even a few years ago, you’re probably more exposed to fraud and exploitation than you’d like to be.
It’s not hard to understand why bot management is critical to maintaining business availability and customer satisfaction – but do you know how to properly deal with bots?
Increasing use of encryption has created new challenges for enterprise security managers. Ever more-sophisticated encryption such as Perfect Forward Secrecy (PFS) protects data and may even boost your Google ranking – but it also provides a haven for malicious code that may use encryption to bypass enterprise security controls.
