Ping Identity Named a Leader for the Fourth Consecutive Year in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Access Management
Company recognized highest in Ability to
Today, Ping Identity (NYSE: PING), the intelligent identity
solution for the enterprise, announced that it has been named a
Leader by Gartner, Inc. in the 2020 Magic Quadrant for Access
Management for the fourth consecutive year. The Magic Quadrant is
designed to help companies evaluate technology providers’
completeness of vision and ability to execute.
The news follows a strong year of growth and innovation for Ping
Identity, including the company’s acquisition of personal identity
leader, ShoCard, and launch of PingOne Services, a suite of
stand-alone cloud services that help enterprises rapidly create
frictionless, secure, privacy-first user experiences.
Identity Security at a Crucial Time
This year has forced business leaders to accelerate plans for
new digital engagement channels for customers, employees and
partners. According to Gartner, “for many enterprises the global
pandemic has compressed years-long strategic change into months, or
even weeks.”1 Against this backdrop, Ping Identity has armed
enterprises with the tools they need to not only acquire and retain
digital customers, but also to keep employees productive and
company resources secure no matter where workforces are located. In
October, Ping launched PingOne Services to address the shift to
remote work and an increasing number of employees and partners
accessing corporate resources off of the corporate network.
Real-time threat detection and prevention, along with a new
multi-factor authentication cloud service, address enterprises’
needs to balance security and convenience for customers’ and
employees’ digital experience.
Ping protects enterprises that use cloud, on-premises, and
hybrid IT models, and secures over two billion identities in the
most mission critical, complex use-cases. Most global enterprises
require flexibility to run secure applications in a hybrid setting
while adhering to regulations about data storage. Ping delivers the
flexibility and security required by these large enterprises, which
is why they count over 50% of the Fortune 100 as customers.
A Leader In Customer Experience
Ping designs new products and services with the user experience
in mind. PingOne MFA, part of the new PingOne Services suite, uses
adaptive authentication policies so that organizations only prompt
customers for authentication when needed and not bother them
otherwise. Additionally, Ping is pioneering the next wave of
identity security with a new framework that gives users with more
control over their data and privacy while reducing fraud and
streamlining user interactions with companies. Ping is also
developing new personal identity solutions that leverage validated
claims from which users can select to share for a particular
vendor, partner or resource. Ping’s customer experience is also
supported by its net-promoter score of 65, a widely recognized
metric of customer success and loyalty, with Ping scoring above
companies in the Identity and Access Management space.
“The world has fundamentally changed this year and it has never
been more important for companies to invest in their identity, Zero
Trust and digital initiatives. At Ping, we focus on frictionless
digital experiences that leave customers both delighted and
secure,” said Andre Durand, Founder and CEO of Ping Identity.
“Having focused exclusively on access management for the enterprise
since our founding, we’re honored to have Gartner recognize the
success of our customers, our products and the Ping team for the
fourth year in a row."
