Ping Identity ranks first in all Gartner report’s PAM use cases

07 Dec 2020

Ping Identity, an identity solution provider for enterprises, won rankings across all three categories of use cases in Gartner’s 2020 Critical Capabilities for Access Management report. 

The placement comes on the heels of Ping being named a Leader for the fourth consecutive year by Gartner in the 2020 Magic Quadrant for Access Management.

The report assesses 12 vendors and how their respective product or service delivers on a range of capabilities and use cases, including protecting internal and external identities. 

Together, the Critical Capabilities and the Magic Quadrant provide a holistic view of the vendors in a given market and the positioning of providers’ product and service offerings.

Ping Identity was the highest-scoring vendor across all three major use cases identified by Gartner:

  • Internal Users Access Management Use Case
  • External Users Access Management Use Case
  • Multiconstituency Access Management Use Case

The report assesses tools that provide centralised authentication, SSO, session management and authorisation enforcement for target applications and services. 

The Internal Users Access Management use case includes adaptive and contextual authentication functions, support for modern identity protocols such as SAML, OAuth 2.0 and OIDC and is geared toward workforce identities. 

Whereas, the External Users Access Management use case is suited for the B2C, B2B, G2C and gig economy identities and includes CIAM capabilities like delegated administration, consent, preference and privacy management and federation to and from other platforms. 

The Multiconstituency Access Management use case evaluates a vendor’s ability to support both the internal and external use cases, an important consideration for large enterprises seeking to standardise on a single identity platform.

“To truly modernise security and deliver premier digital experiences, enterprises must be able to verify identity from anywhere and across all environments and user populations,” says Ping Identity founder and CEO Andre Durand. 

“With this renewed emphasis on digital-first initiatives, our team has worked tirelessly to ensure our solutions provide world-class security while being easy to implement. It’s rewarding to have our team’s work championing identity-first security acknowledged.”

This year the company acquired personal identity firm ShoCard, and launched a suite of identity cloud services, dubbed PingOne Services, which help organisations to manage privacy within the user experience.

The company’s acquisition of ShoCard in October enabled Ping Identity to expand its privacy solutions while reducing fraud and maintaining user interactions with organisations.

With ShoCard technology, individuals can collect verification of their identity and share it with businesses when establishing new relationships in a ‘privacy-first’ user experience.
