Gartner names Ping Identity in Magic Quadrant yet again

Denver, Co

Ping Identity has been named a leader by Gartner, Inc. in the 2020 Magic Quadrant for Access Management for the fourth consecutive year. The Magic Quadrant is designed to help companies evaluate technology providers’ completeness of vision and ability to execute.

The news follows a strong year of growth and innovation for Ping Identity, including the company’s acquisition of personal identity leader, Shocard, and launch of Pingone Services, a suite of stand-alone cloud services that help enterprises rapidly create frictionless, secure, privacy-first user experiences.

Identity security at a crucial time

This year has forced business leaders to accelerate plans for new digital engagement channels for customers, employees and partners. According to Gartner, “for many enterprises the global pandemic has compressed years-long strategic change into months, or even weeks.” Against this backdrop, Ping Identity has armed enterprises with the tools they need to not only acquire and retain digital customers, but also to keep employees productive and company resources secure no matter where workforces are located. In October, Ping launched Pingone Services to address the shift to remote work and an increasing number of employees and partners accessing corporate resources off of the corporate network. Real-time threat detection and prevention, along with a new multi-factor authentication cloud service, address enterprises’ needs to balance security and convenience for customers’ and employees’ digital experience.

Ping protects enterprises that use cloud, on-premises, and hybrid IT models, and secures over two billion identities in the most mission critical, complex use-cases. Most global enterprises require flexibility to run secure applications in a hybrid setting while adhering to regulations about data storage. Ping delivers the flexibility and security required by these large enterprises, which is why they count over 50% of the Fortune 100 as customers.

“The world has fundamentally changed this year and it has never been more important for companies to invest in their identity, Zero Trust and digital initiatives. At Ping, we focus on frictionless digital experiences that leave customers both delighted and secure,” said Andre Durand, Founder and CEO of Ping Identity. “Having focused exclusively on access management for the enterprise since our founding, we’re honoured to have Gartner recognise the success of our customers, our products and the Ping team for the fourth year in a row."
