Ping Identity Partners with KPMG to Deliver CIAM Solutions

Colorado-based identity management vendor Ping Identity yesterday announced a partnership with audit, tax, and advisory firm KPMG LLP to provide large-scale consumer and identity access management (CIAM) solutions. Designed to foster digital commerce and digital transition initiatives for enterprises, the new CIAM solutions simultaneously respect the personalized preferences and security needs for customers and employees alike. Ping’s platform allows for high-level scaling, allowing for the management of million of identities across multiple businesses if needed, and can be implemented via private cloud, on-premises, or as IDaaS.

Ping’s CIAM solutions benefit from centralization; they can integrate large-scale identity capabilities on a single platform, provide multifactor authentication, single-sign on, and data governance tools, and even help with regulation compliance including for GDPR. Both companies stated that the versatility of their CIAM solutions will prove cost-effective and will balance security and user-experience.

“Because the Ping consumer and identity access management offerings increase productivity by using a unified, standards-based platform, customers benefit from simple, secure access to cloud, mobile, and enterprise applications,” stated Dave Packer, Senior Vice President of Field Operations for Ping Identity.

“Driving customer engagement is a top priority for business leaders, and these experiences must be secure and consistent across all channels,” added Jacob Pszonowsky, Principal at KPMG Cyber Security Services.

Ping Identity received the 2017 Cybersecurity Excellence Award and the 2017 CRN Security 100 Award, and has been named an Identity Management and Identity-As-A-Service (IDaaS) vendor to watch in 2018 by Solutions Review.
