Ping Identity. Billing itself as the "identity security company", Ping says it helps prevent security breaches, increase employee and partner productivity and deliver killer, personalised customer experiences.
Naturally, the company does all the things you'd expect, with its Ping Identity Platform connecting users to cloud, mobile and on-premises applications while managing identity and profile data at scale.
Single sign-on, secure one-click access to all your apps, multi-factor authentication and also balancing security and convenience with additional authentication factors.
So, it's no surprise to see this US company has a global presence, with its founder and chief executive in town late last month to meet major customers, and to meet the media at the same time.
After the briefing, I conducted a video interview with Durand, which you can see embedded below.
Durand started by telling us about the company's founding all those years ago, moving to the breadth and depth of services Ping Identity offers today.
During the briefing, media and Ping executives had a robust discussion on the state of identity, security, authentication, biometrics, James Bond movies and more, and Durand summarised the discussion that was had.
We spoke about the industries Durand is working with in Australia, we peered into the future to see what it might hold, great advice Durand has received to help him get where he is today, and his final message for readers and viewers.
