2015. Ping Identity adds authentication via Apple Watch
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.
2014. Identity management service Ping Identity lands $35M
Cloud security startup Ping Identity gets $35 million investment. Ping Identity emphasizes mobile for its identity management platform by hooking into a user’s smart phone as a means to ensure that the right person is accessing the right part of the network. The identity and access management space has been heating up this summer with Okta grabbing $75 million in June, and Sailpoint taking in an unspecified investment that’s supposedly valued at around several hundred million dollars. All of these startups operate under the premise that the cloud has made it difficult for companies to keep track of who can access their often-times complex internal networks while keeping damage-causing miscreants out of their systems.
