Ping Identity Simplifies and Strengthens Customer Data Protection

Sponsored by Businesswire

, the leader in Identity Defined Security, today announced
updates to its data
governance solution
, PingDataGovernance, to better manage data
security and privacy requirements for APIs and user profiles. Today’s
enterprises manage many different APIs on average, meaning sensitive
consumer data like banking information and healthcare records are
increasingly vulnerable. This rapid growth of APIs and third-party API
traffic necessitates fine-grained data protection. These latest
enhancements help enterprises build consumer trust and enable seamless
and secure experiences for their customers.

What’s New in PingDataGovernance?

The updates to PingDataGovernance, which are generally available this
month, address these needs with two significant changes. The first is
customer data protection in APIs as part of an advanced API security
program. The second is a drag and drop graphical user interface (GUI),
allowing business users to collaboratively author and test policies with
a visual policy tree. With this additional functionality, customers can
address several organizational challenges, including:

  • Conflicting Forces: Often times, enterprises can experience
    conflicting forces among the stakeholders, contributing to the
    complexity of securing consumer data. Data privacy regulations, users
    themselves and various business units within an organization all have
    different requirements for accessing and protecting data. With the new
    GUI, PingDataGovernance accounts for these forces by providing an
    externalized authorization platform for gathering and reconciling
    independent policy requirements to help ensure every party is
    satisfied and data is secure.
  • Empowerment of Stakeholders: Ping Identity understands
    developers don’t want sole responsibility for security, which is why
    this latest update eliminates the burden of database administrators
    and API developers to gather and reconcile policy requirements. With
    the new GUI, policy authors are able to visually test policy decisions
    based on dynamic inputs, using any number of attributes, including
    real-time risk scores, data source lookups, and more.
  • Fine-Grained Policy Control: With consumer data security in
    mind, PingDataGovernance gives enterprises centralized, fine-grained
    control over who has access to all user-related data. While this
    control has always applied to data within user profiles, it now
    extends to access and filter data in APIs—providing a new layer of
    governance. Users can now securely expose data to delegated
    individuals, define what specific data others can view and edit, and
    filter and remove unauthorized data.

“We have been using PingDataGovernance for some time now and we’re eager
to begin using the new graphical user interface for collaborative
visibility and drag and drop policy administration,” said Mike Mayfield,
Head of Directory at the Open Banking Implementation Entity (OBIE) of
the UK.
