New York — January 2, 2018
KPMG and Ping Identity, the leader in Identity Defined Security, today announced an alliance that delivers flexible, large-scale consumer and identity access management (CIAM) solutions. These offerings are designed to support enterprise digital transformation initiatives, such as enabling digital commerce, personalizing omnichannel interactions, building trust through respecting preferences and providing secure and seamless experiences for employees, business partners and customers.
“Driving customer engagement is a top priority for business leaders, and these experiences must be secure and consistent across all channels,” said Jacob Pszonowsky, Principal, KPMG Cyber Security Services. “Through our alliance with Ping Identity, we’re expanding and accelerating the creation of customer identity solutions that deliver convenience, personalization and security for our clients.”
By combining the Ping Identity Platform with KPMG’s knowledge and experience, customers benefit from being able to integrate large-scale identity capabilities on a single platform within existing business systems. With the ability to scale to hundreds of millions of identities, Ping’s unified, standards-based platform provides access management, multi-factor authentication (MFA), single sign-on (SSO), access security, data governance, directory, and data sync capabilities. Additionally, architectural leading practices of Ping’s CIAM solutions help make compliance with regulations ― like the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) ― more cost effective and efficient for KPMG clients.
Ping Identity and KPMG also are making it easier for organizations to determine where and how to implement these identity security capabilities. The alliance is designed to balance user experience, security risk management, and operations excellence with the flexibility of Ping’s platform. The platform can be deployed as Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS), in the enterprise’s private cloud, as on-premises software, or in combination for hybrid IT environments.
“Our relationship with KPMG means we’re helping clients deliver great experiences with solutions designed for cloud or hybrid IT deployments,” said Dave Packer, Senior Vice President, Field Operations, Ping Identity. “Because the Ping consumer and identity access management offerings increase productivity by using a unified, standards-based platform, customers benefit from simple, secure access to cloud, mobile, and enterprise applications.”
Both KPMG and Ping Identity are recognized market leaders in cyber services. Ping has received the 2017 Cybersecurity Excellence Award and the 2017 CRN Security 100 Award. Ping also has consistently been rated as a leader in multiple analyst reports. KPMG International was named a Forrester Research leader among security consulting service providers, receiving the highest score of any vendor evaluated in the strategy category.
