Comparing OneLogin vs Ping Identity is like comparing apples to oranges. Because your business is unique and nobody except you can decide, which is better for your company. But we can add some fun to your research and suggest some new comparison parameters.

Ok, now let's compare the UI. Looks like Ping Identity has more user-friendly interface than OneLogin because it's bigger. At least on our screenshots


To compare the popularity of the solutions we counted how many alternatives people search for each of them on the Internet. And it turns out that Ping Identity is more popular than OneLogin

Now let's look at the recent activities of our competitors:

VMware Horizon App Manager
As known, the main problems with SaaS-apps arise not with users, but with IT administrators, because they are losing control over what's happening. Because of this, they resist the SaaS implementation, claiming in particular, that they can't control authentication data across multiple SaaS services. To solve this problems, the new class of services appeared - SSO (Single Sign-on services). We have already reviewed one of them - OneLogin. There are some others, but all of them are semi-startups, which can't fully satisfy the IT staff. And finally there is a solution from the solid company - VMware Horizon App Manager.



As other similar solutions, VMware Horizon App Manager provides users a secure Web-portal, where they can login (one time) and see the list of available SaaS apps and in-house business applications, that they can enter in one click. At the moment the list of integrated services includes Google Apps, Salesforce, NetSuite, Webex, Box.net, DropBox, Basecamp, Zoho, Zimbra, etc.

And the users may not even know their passwords in these services - only the administrators knows. He also controls who can access the particular app and from which IP-address.

Horizon App Manager supports all the necessary authentication technologies (including oAuth, SAML, two-factor authentication) and integrates with corporate user directory Active Directory (or other LDAP-directory).

Horizon App Manager costs $30 per user per year.
