Ping Identity sets up in Australia, Japan


Cloud security company, Ping Identity is setting up new offices in Sydney and Tokyo to support and extend the activities of its established specialist partner network in the region.

According to Ping's chief revenue officer, Bill Dedrick, as in North America and Europe, more organisations in Japan and the Asia Pacific are 'turning to cloud computing and mobility to grow their businesses and be more efficient.'
Dedrick said that all indicators point to a 'perfect storm for cloud adoption in the Asia Pacific region.'  'A 2011 Forrester Research survey of 598 CIOs and other senior IT managers across Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Japan and New Zealand found that 23% have already implemented some sort of SaaS solution, 28% are planning to use IaaS over the next five years and 30% showed interest in PaaS. Security concerns and difficulty with integration remain among the largest barriers to adoption according to the report.'

Ping's APAC managing director, Finney Gilbert, said he believed that single sign on (SSO), and identity management especially with respect to the cloud are 'coming of age in these markets.' 'Our partners remain central to our regional strategy, and I am excited to collaborate with them as we continue to drive adoption of Ping Identity's leading technologies in the region.'

Gilbert said that, together with partners eB2Bcom, WDCi, Fronde and others, Ping Identity has brought secure single sign on (SSO), and federated identity management to prestigious enterprise, educational, and government customers in Australia including, AAPT, Griffith University, DBS Bank and many others.
