Face to face in the news:
2016 - Enterprise identity management leader Okta expands partnership with Box to take on Ping Identity
Cloud identity management and mobility management provider Okta announced a partnership with Box to support device-level security for the Box mobile app. Okta and Box have a long history together but this expands the friendship. The new solution will allow to apply a set of policies on the device, such as requiring a device PIN before you can use any of the managed apps. Okta’s EMM solution also includes integrated identity across participating apps with Single Sign-On (SSO) along with unified provisioning across all devices, according to the company.
2015 - Ping Identity adds authentication via Apple Watch to stand out over Okta
Identity management platform Ping Identity adds the ability to get your second authentication factor using an Apple Watch. The idea behind the platform is to put identity at the center of the security model and enable users — whether employees, partners or customers — to have access to applications, regardless of the device, based on who they are. You sign on to Ping, then your watch buzzes. You activate it and tap the sign on card on your Watch. It’s a clever way of using the Watch in a useful way to simplify security.
