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.

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.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes how...

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
