In 3 bullets, summarize why this company is different from the competition and deserves recognition:
-In today’s mobile-first world, identity has emerged as the lynchpin that CIOs can incorporate into their security strategies to keep their corporate data safe by making it accessible to the right people at the right time. Everyone who touches the enterprise -- employees, customers and partners -- needs access to business critical apps quickly, easily and securely. Ping Identity Defined Security makes this possible by putting identity at the center of the organization’s security architecture.
-Ping enables organizations to provide better security and seamless access to applications with continuous evaluation of authentication and authorization factors. Ping also provides solutions for a variety of use cases that apply to the workforce, consumers and enterprise partners throughout the supply chain, turning identity into the steel thread that powers access and security for the modern borderless enterprise.
-Ping secures more than 1.3 billion identities through its multi-factor and contextual authentication, single-sign on, federated identity administration and access management solutions, making it the only IAM provider that meets the needs of the modern enterprise. Ping is the only IAM provider to solve identity challenges for enterprises in all stages of cloud adoption whether they are 100 percent in the cloud or hybrid, so they can keep legacy investments while adopting new technologies at their own pace.
