VIDEO: Mortgage Choice chooses Ping to ring in enterprise-grade security and 65% cost reduction

By

Ping Identity helps Mortgage Choice deliver "enterprise-grade security to franchisees across Australia" while the company reports a 65% cost reduction with the deployment of the Ping Intelligent Identity Platform.

Ping Identity. The company says it is a pioneer in Intelligent Identity and recently announced that Mortgage Choice, an Australian financial services provider, is "leveraging its solutions to enable more than 400 franchisees with cloud single sign-on (SSO) capabilities, centralised access management and security, and modern directory services. This translates into flexible, enterprise-grade endpoint security at scale for APIs, microservices and web properties for Mortgage Choice".

We're told that Mortgage Choice "sought to modernise its identity and access management (IAM) platform to easily integrate with current and new systems.

"Being quick-to-deploy was top of mind, so its developer resources could focus on ensuring business value instead of grappling with complex security concerns. Even further, it required integration with Microsoft Dynamics CRM, G Suite and an IBM workflow automation solution. The Ping Intelligent Identity platform addresses and fulfils all of these parameters."

Ping Identity Solution Delivers 65% Cost Reduction

By implementing an enterprise-grade security platform as opposed to a custom, in-house build, the Mortgage Choice team explained that it "reduced risk and achieved a 65% cost reduction. Additionally, it’s now providing seamless SSO to its users, and maintaining an intuitive and consistent experience to deliver change faster, more reliably and with a strong customer focus to serve a competitive advantage".

Vincent ten Krooden, General Manager – Technology, Mortgage Choice said: “In the trillion dollar mortgage industry, technology is a competitive differentiator. The interoperability and speed we gain with Ping Identity gives us the agility we need in business".

Here's the full video of a lunch event where Ping Identity and Mortgage Choice announced the relationship, the benefits and more, in front of a selection of top Australian business technology journalists, where everything was discussed in more detail - the article continues below:

Open Standards? "No problem", says Ping Identity.

Ping Identity said its support for open standards is also key for Mortgage Choice, said Michael Paredes, the company's Head of Delivery: “We’re having more discussions about consuming APIs from different providers.

"Having the ability to authenticate, expose our own data and consume their data—using leading and emerging standards instead of spending time defining interfaces—is paramount,”

Paredes adds, "For example, Ping Identity's SAML support allows Mortgage Choice to securely provision users to its new ZenDesk implementation, whilst addressing unique security concerns related to operating a franchise business model. SAML is very scalable and Mortgage Choice was able to get this up and running within one day."
