A recent press release states, “Ping Identity, a pioneer in Intelligent Identity solutions, today announced its continued support for enterprises in developing a Zero Trust security infrastructure with new capabilities, practical guidance, and technology integrations. As organizations move away from a static perimeter-based security approach, they’re embracing strategies that require authentication and authorization of every user, device, and network, as well as dynamic policies that factor in numerous risk signals, and intelligent data sources.”
The release goes on, “To support organizations in their Zero Trust efforts, the Ping Intelligent Identity™ platform offers: (1) Enhanced Passwordless Authentication Capabilities: Enabled by support for the FIDO2 passwordless authentication flow, and an “Identifier First” adapter, users are prompted for an identifier—such as a username—which triggers user verification via push notification, facial or fingerprint check, or another non-password authentication method. (2) Expanded Identity Intelligence: User-behavior based attack detection on APIs to block access if necessary, the ability to evaluate whether two authentication requests from different locations are possible in the time elapsed between them (impossible travel velocity), and IP address reputation assessment before granting access. (3) Broadened Enterprise Coverage: Fine-grained control over who has access to user-related data to address data privacy challenges.”
