KuppingerCole defines the CIAM market as a sub-genre of traditional Identity and Access Management (IAM) that has emerged in the last few years to meet evolving business requirements. Its analysts note that many businesses and public sector organizations are finding that they must provide better digital experiences for, and gather more information about, the customers who are using their services. Enterprises want to collect, store and analyze data on customers in order to create additional sales opportunities and increase brand loyalty.

In naming Ping Identity a product leader in CIAM, KuppingerCole has recognized Ping as a pioneer in identity federations and among the first to adapt to customer-facing requirements. KuppingerCole analysts note that Ping has “many large scale, high performance on-premise and cloud deployments” for CIAM and highlight that, “Ping provides an SDK to embed multi-factor authentication features into any mobile app.”

KuppingerCole also rated Ping’s CIAM solution as either strong-positive or positive across all categories including:

  • security
  • functionality
  • integration
  • usability

And Ping itself was rated by KuppingerCole as positive for:

  • innovativeness
  • market position
  • financial strength
  • ecosystem

“The CIAM market is evolving quickly as new opportunities to improve customer experiences, privacy regulations such as GDPR, and security challenges emerge. CIAM plays an increasingly central role in Ping’s corporate strategy and our customers will continue to see our innovation and product leadership in CIAM,” said Andre Durand, CEO and founder of Ping Identity. “KuppingerCole analysts have deep expertise in CIAM, and we value their research to maintain an up-to-date view of the market.”

Enterprises must balance security and convenience for their customers. Striking that balance requires a scalable, high-performance CIAM solution that provides single sign-on (SSO) and access security across all of an enterprise’s digital properties, unifies and secures identity-centric customer data, and manages customer consent to meet privacy regulations. Ping’s integrated CIAM solution is designed to meet these needs by leveraging open standards to maintain the highest level of security and compliance without sacrificing usability. It can also be deployed incrementally to address the most critical needs first, whether that is providing SSO for seamless authentication across digital properties, creating a unified view of customers at the data layer, or meeting privacy directives and adhering to regulatory constraints. Leading brands using Ping Identity for CIAM include Adidas, Barclays, Comcast, E.ON, Elsevier, Fidelity, Starbucks and TIAA.
