Ping Identity (NYSE: PING), the Intelligent Identity solution for the enterprise, announced it has been named to the annual Security 100 list by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company. Within the Security 100 recognition, CRN named Ping Identity one of its “20 Coolest Identity Access Management and Data Protection Companies of 2021,” highlighting the company’s success in managing cybersecurity and authentication efforts for its customers.
As digital security continues to be a top priority for businesses of all sizes, this year’s Security 100 honorees bring a combination of channel-focused, cutting-edge technology and outstanding partner benefits to solution providers. The list serves as a guide to help solution providers identify the top security vendors to partner with in order to deliver the most innovative solutions to their customers.
“Identity management is a critical piece to any company’s digital transformation journey, especially as the idea of ‘work form anywhere’ has become more permanent,” said Beth Drew, vice president of channel sales at Ping Identity. “The solutions we create with our Partners make distributed work seamless and secure, addressing the real challenges businesses face when managing multiple access points for each individual user and customer. This recognition is an honor and a testament to Ping Identity’s commitment to securing identities throughout the channel partner ecosystem.”
Ping Identity was recognized for the PingOne Risk Management solution, which evaluates user context and multiple signals to understand the level of risk posed by a user trying to access a resource. The recognition also underscores the strength of Ping Identity’s expanded portfolio and integrated capabilities for zero trust identity.
“CRN’s Security 100 list identifies leading companies who provide the IT channel with innovation in a number of security areas that stand up to a wide range of threats and risks,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “Security is arguably the single most important factor in business today, and these companies are creating the building blocks for the most advanced cybertechnology security solutions.”
