Ping Identity Delivers Mobile App for Single Sign-On Access to Thousands of Applications from Any Device

Ping Identity®, The Identity Security Company™, today announced a native mobile application that delivers single sign-on (SSO) access to thousands of applications from any device. Available for iPhone®, iPad® and Android™ smartphones and tablets, the PingOne app gives users a simple way to access corporate resources via their smartphone or tablet without compromising security and compliance requirements.

Mobile security continues to be top-of-mind for enterprises; however, Gartner predicts that “by 2016, 20 percent of enterprise BYOD programs will fail due to enterprise deployment of mobile device management measures that are too restrictive.” [i] Additionally, “by the end of 2020, 80- percent of user access will be shaped by new mobile and non-PC architectures that service all identity types regardless of origin.” [ii] As users access applications with sensitive business data from multiple devices, the IT department becomes increasingly critical in reducing potential vulnerabilities when managing usernames and passwords across mobile devices and applications.

PingOne provides a comprehensive offering that supports applications that have standards-based single sign-on and applications with basic password-based logins. The PingOne app authenticates users (at the corporate identity provider) to all of their applications through federated or basic SSO. This delivers the convenient SSO experience users demand while giving IT administrators visibility and control over activities that occur beyond corporate borders.

“The traditional four walls of an office no longer exist, and enterprises are tasked with managing complex security requirements for employees that now depend on mobile devices to work anytime, anywhere,” said Patrick Harding, CTO, Ping Identity. “Usernames and passwords are often ‘remembered’ or stored on devices for quick access to company resources; however, a tablet left in seat 32C on an airplane is not only inconvenient and expensive – it puts sensitive corporate data at risk. IT organizations must deliver security assurance levels that are right for the business but also fit how people work in this new era, beginning with mobile security.”

In addition to delivering one-click access to thousands of applications, the PingOne app also gives security-conscious IT departments the ability to centrally manage application access with powerful reporting, provisioning and compliance features. The offering is designed to grow with the company and evolve to meet ever-changing mobile security requirements.

Pricing and Availability

The PingOne app is now available on the App StoreSM and the Google Play Store™ for all existing PingOne customers. Use PingOne for Groups today for free for up to 50 users. For more information, please visit https://www.pingone.com/pricing.cfm.
