Ping Identity delivers self-service IAM


Identity vendor Ping Identity's PingCentral brings self-service to enterprise identity and access management (IAM).

PingCentral provides workflows and templates for common IAM tasks.

Just as self-service password reset freed first-line support staff from dealing with all too frequent requests to change forgotten password, PingCentral has the potential to relieve IAM administrators of the high volume of requests currently required to keep application teams functioning.

Allowing business application teams to make their own IAM changes boosts their productivity as they no longer have to wait possibly several weeks for changes to be made, while identity security teams can devote more of their time to higher-value activities such as enhancing security posture and improving end user productivity.

PingCentral combines a delegated administration portal with an orchestration engine for automation; a central monitoring system that provides visibility of application connections, clients and environment tiers from a single screen; and lifecycle management that keeps an audit trail and allows for easy reversion to previous configurations when necessary.

"Ping Identity is dedicated to providing implicit value to our customers through our IAM solutions, helping enterprises to achieve their digital transformation goals," said Ping Identity vice president of product management Loren Russon.

"By simplifying fundamental IAM processes and enabling non-technical business teams to manage standard administrative tasks, PingCentral helps enable organisations to save valuable time and resources while strengthening their overall security posture."

PingCentral is available now.
