FYI, this story is more than a year old

Identity-defined security provider Ping Identity has announced that it has been named a Leader by Gartner in the Magic Quadrant for access management for the third consecutive year.

The Magic Quadrant is designed to help companies evaluate technology providers' completeness of vision and ability to execute.

The organisation offers a cloud-based PingOne for Customers solution, a developer-friendly API platform that helps enable organisations to easily embed secure identity services—user registration, multi-factor authentication (MFA), self-service profile management and more - into their applications.

PingIntelligence for APIs, which can apply artificial intelligence and machine learning to continuously inspect, report and act on all API activity, also contributed to Ping's leadership position.

Identity security done right

The Ping Intelligent Identity platform delivers a unified, standards-based identity and access management (IAM) solution that provides secure and seamless user experiences for customers, employees, and partners.

The solution includes authentication and single sign-on, MFA, access security, directory, intelligent API security and data governance capabilities that work together to enable a secure, connected and agile enterprise.

Ping Identity COO Kris Nagel says, “Enterprises need a modern, agile identity solution to keep pace with their digital business initiatives, improve customer engagement, drive user productivity, and keep everyone secure.

“Ping Identity is proud to once again be recognised as a Leader in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Access Management.”
