Microsoft has announced a collaboration with Denver-based company, Ping Identity to provide additions that it claims will enhance Azure Active Directory (Azure AD), Microsoft’s Identity and Access Management as a Service (IDaaS) solution. With this alliance, Ping Identity will act as a conduit to expand secure remote access and single sign-on from any device to more on-premises web applications for Microsoft Azure Active Directory customers. According to the deal, both the companies will be eyeing to deliver an integrated solution of PingAccess and Azure Active Directory Application Proxy in early 2017 in order to allow the secure access to a wide range of on-premise web applications. The PingAccess server offers a completely new way to manage access to web applications and application programming interfaces (APIs). By providing role and attribute-based access control that applies policies based on identity, user can enable access from any client to any application. Alex Simons, Director of Program Management, Microsoft Corp stated, “Microsoft and Ping Identity will provide Microsoft Azure AD customers with a secure and seamless experience to access an expanded set of on-premises apps that they need to do their jobs. We’re already seeing rapid adoption among joint customers who are looking to create a safe and consistent single sign-on experience across their business applications.”
