Ping Identity Now Provides Second-Factor Authentication Capabilities for Microsoft Azure

PingID Delivers Critical Level of Security in Both Hybrid IT and
Cloud-Only Environments

Microsoft Ignite

Ping Identity Booth #302

, the leader in Identity Defined Security, today announced
the integration of its PingID multi-factor authentication (MFA) solution
with Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) and Microsoft Active
Directory Federation Services (ADFS).

This latest integration furthers the relationship between Ping Identity
and Microsoft by enabling enterprises to quickly move applications to
Azure AD. The Ping Identity Platform provides enhanced and user-friendly
security with contextual convenience designed for hybrid IT
environments. This added flexibility is key as organizations make their
transition more seamless, and PingID provides that critical level of
security in both hybrid IT or cloud-only environments.

This is just one of three major capabilities enabled as a result of Ping
Identity’s integration with Azure AD. In addition to offering
enterprises the ability to leverage PingAccess
for Azure AD
and PingFederate
and Azure AD Connect
, this announcement highlights using PingID for
adaptive multi-factor authentication. It balances secure access to
applications with ease of use for the end user, and helps define and
enforce authentication policies that are tailored to enterprise needs.
Users can add and select from multiple authentication methods and
devices on the fly—ultimately reducing support calls. The solution gives
users the freedom to put MFA
it is needed for employees, partners and customers.

Ping provides solutions that connect Microsoft and non-Microsoft
infrastructures, making Microsoft Office 365 and Azure AD easier to use,
more secure and productive. Whether the user’s journey starts with
authenticating via on-premises Active Directory or cloud-based Azure
Active Directory, the experience is the same: seamless, secure access to
all applications, regardless of where they exist.

“The integration with Microsoft is vital for enterprises that rely on
Office 365 and the Microsoft identity structure of Azure AD and
on-premises Active Directory,” said Loren Russon, vice president,
product management, Ping Identity. “Using PingID, enterprises can offer
this contextual second-factor authentication, regardless of where the
initial authentication occurs.”

PingID will be generally available on September 30. For a demo and
product information, visit the Ping Identity booth 302 at Microsoft
Ignite 2018
taking place in Orlando, September 24-27.
