Ping Identity has just announced new enhancements to how enterprises can link into the cloud and mobile.
An announcement on Monday (Aug. 15) said Ping rolled out the enhancements that help businesses access security across location, devices and networks to ensure that corporate employees and clients have the correct access to enterprise apps and data.
Ping provides services for companies looking to migrate to the cloud and support mobile access to enterprise apps and APIs. In a statement, Ping Vice President of Product Marketing Trevor Daughney said that migration is key for productivity.
“We want to remove the security roadblocks companies face operating in a digital-first world, like ensuring employees have immediate access to the applications and resources to get their work done, and these new enhancements to the Ping Identity platform satisfy those requirements,” he said. “We continue to deliver battle-tested features and more integrations for enterprises to extend their security investments.”
Among the upgrades to the system include a feature that enables a system to authenticate a user based on the portal through which they access an API or app. “This support enables businesses to make crucial policy decisions about the identity of their users and determine if they are authorized based on contextual information, such as location, device and network,” Ping Identity explained in its release.
The company also revealed a streamlined administration process and broadened security across platforms for Windows and Mac. Ping Identity added that the enhancements are aimed at reducing risk of a data breach.
