Ping Identity has today announced the availability of its Workflow Identity Solutions in Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace.

Its inclusion on AWS Marketplace means enterprise customers on the platform can quickly deploy the solutions, enabling them to work from anywhere and providing a centralised authentication service to access their AWS infrastructure.

The Workflow Identity Solutions themselves allow enterprises to secure remote work and bolster efficiency by providing the ability to extend access across software-as-a-service (SaaS), cloud and legacy applications for a better login experience.

Users can boost productivity even further by leveraging Ping's Intelligent Identity platform, which prioritises efficiency, security and agility while enhancing access security to enterprise apps, APIs and data.

Ping's robust Workforce Identity Solutions empower enterprises with on-premises and hybrid IT environments to efficiently and securely migrate to the cloud while streamlining the user experience.

“AWS Marketplace streamlines the selection and procurement process for identity and access management solutions on AWS,” says AWS Marketplace general manager Chris Grusz.

“We are delighted to welcome Ping's Intelligent Identity Platform to AWS Marketplace to help enterprises quickly implement their security posture without sacrificing the user experience.

Ping also announced today that its Global Partner Network is now able to resell Ping Identity via the AWS Marketplace Consulting Partner Private Offers program (CPPO), which allows AWS customers to procure Ping's solutions from an AWS Partner Network (APN) Consulting Partner who has knowledge of their business and receive the same purchase experience they're accustomed to in AWS Marketplace.

“Ping Identity is committed to working with AWS and our global partner network to enable today's enterprises to enhance security of their AWS environments,” says Ping Identity vice president of technology alliances Loren Russon.

“Expanding our AWS Marketplace listings to include all of our Workforce Identity Solutions and giving our partners the ability to resell Ping via AWS Marketplace Private Offers are more important milestones in helping our global customers boost employee productivity, strengthen security of remote work, and increase business agility.

Today's announcements come only days after the company launched its new Consumer Data Right sandbox environment in Australia –  with the goal to fast track open banking adoption in the country, as well as allow banks and FinTech companies to accelerate their CDR compliance efforts.

The CDR sandbox provides a pre-built development environment to get started without the need for custom development. It allows banks and fintechs to focus on their core business working with customer data via the CDR APIs and leaves the complex InfoSec and user consent requirements to Ping Identity.
