Ping Identity®, The Identity Security Company™, today announced that Haemonetics Corp. (NYSE:HAE), a medical device company focused on blood processing and collection systems, selected PingOne to provide simple and secure employee access to all of the company’s SaaS apps and integrate with the company’s Active Directory. With PingOne, Haemonetics was able to increase employee productivity and ensure regulatory compliance.
"Ping Identity provides everything I was looking for in an identity security solution. As my team can verify, I have high standards when it comes to security,” said Ravi Thatavarthy, director of global IT security and policy, Haemonetics. “PingOne supports industry standards such as SAML, OpenID and SCIM, and it eliminates the risks of storing passwords or duplicate accounts in the cloud. It also helped focus our IT department on creating a great user experience in all that we do. Increasing employee productivity and satisfaction has helped us drive more value to the company’s bottom line and our secure SaaS solution has reinforced our reputation as an IT team that cares.”
As a public company, Haemonetics is faced with governance, risk management and compliance (GRC) requirements that require tight control over security and identity management. While cloud solutions offer exceptional benefits in cost and performance, Haemonetics was reluctant to move its 4,000-employee user-base to SaaS business applications because of the risk of exposing sensitive user data. The company needed a security solution that would scale with its need to expand the use of business applications to users without the burden of multiple login credentials.
Haemonetics chose PingOne, Ping Identity’s cloud-based SSO solution, to provide its workforce access to the company’s SaaS applications through one secure connection. The solution integrates with Haemonetics’ Active Directory (comprising multiple domains and trusts) and provides IT-controlled access to all of the company’s SaaS apps. PingOne also supports hundreds of SaaS applications, including all the ones Haemonetics initially required (ADP, Benefitfocus, Concur, Cornerstone, Salesforce.com, WebEx) plus others the company plans to add in the near future.
PingOne’s rapid deployment capabilities help Haemonetics add new apps to the network in a matter of hours. The solution has helped Haemonetics increase employee productivity, allowing employees to use their corporate ID and password for all applications and reduce IT workload because of the decrease in help-desk login problem calls. The solution has also helped the company streamline its user account management processes, fulfilling compliance requirements.
“PingOne’s support of industry standards such as SAML, OpenID and SCIM, along with its rapid deployment and ability to support all SaaS applications, makes it an ideal solution for companies such as Haemonetics,” explained Bill Dedrick, president, Ping Identity. “Our solution also has the ability to scale as Haemonetics continues to grow. With their expected expansion of 10 to 20 more SaaS applications in the short term, we know PingOne will help them grow in a secure and streamlined way.”

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them?

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.
