Ping Identity (NYSE: PING), the intelligent identity solution for the enterprise, announced it has achieved “In Process” designation for the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) for its cloud Identity and Access Management (IAM) service offering, PingOne for Government, and is now listed on the FedRAMP marketplace website.
FedRAMP is the U.S. government’s standardized approach to security that is mandatory for all Executive Agency cloud deployments and applicable to contractor systems that hold or process government data. The FedRAMP “In Process” designation is the next-to-last step in enabling federal agencies to use Ping Identity’s cloud IAM solutions to enable secure telework, while also empowering federal IT departments to accelerate the adoption of Zero Trust and cloud resources as mandated by President Biden’s Executive Order on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity.
“Identity security at federal agencies is often siloed and outdated,” said Andre Durand, founder and CEO of Ping Identity. “We see an opportunity in the FedRAMP marketplace for a cloud identity control plane that handles the complexity of hybrid, multi-generational IT environments and mission-critical legacy applications.”
Ping Identity helps federal agencies ensure and enforce that the right people are accessing the right resources at the right time and for the right reasons. Many federal agencies have already modernized legacy IAM by leveraging Ping Identity components in their Federal Identity, Credential, and Access Management (FICAM) programs; but now agencies will soon have the option of consuming Ping’s advanced cloud services so they can achieve Cloud Smart objectives.
