Ping Identity has added a new authorization feature to its PingOne Cloud Platform. The aptly named PingOne Authorize will give organizations the ability to dictate who has access to what information in a more dynamic and granular fashion.
In that regard, PingOne Authorize is geared toward financial institutions, healthcare providers, and other establishments that need to safeguard sensitive personal data while still giving people access to the information they need to conduct their business. Administrators can use the platform’s centralized dashboard to customize their permission policies based on their business model and their desired level of risk.
PingOne Authorize provides consolidated coverage for all of an organization’s applications, APIs, and databases. Once active, it can be configured to take a wide range of factors into account, including user behavior and the nature of the request. The platform can also gauge the amount of risk present in the interaction, and take action accordingly. In some cases, permissions can be set in advance. In others, the platform will analyze the situation in real time before granting someone conditional access to certain information.
PingOne Authorize is a cloud service, which allows organizations to get up and running with the solution more quickly. Ping Identity indicated that the solution will allow organizations to deliver a better user experience while still guarding against fraud and adhering to any relevant privacy regulations.
“The dynamic authorization management market is set for explosive growth over the next decade thanks to its ability to give enterprises the greatest level of control over what users can see or do while still delivering an amazing user experience,” said Ping Identity Founder and CEO Andre Durand. “PingOne Authorize establishes a new standard for dynamic authorization by allowing enterprises to easily control authorization logic and update data access policies in minutes in a cloud environment.”
Ping Identity added behavioral biometrics capabilities to the PingOne Cloud Platform in October, leveraging technology that came through its June acquisition of SecuredTouch. The company also introduced selfie onboarding with PingOne Verify earlier in the year.
