Helps users provide or revoke accesses whenever needed
I don't think there is any need for improvement in the product since everything has been created architecturally by AWS. AWS has given all the features in the tool. In the product, two groups cannot have the same name. There will be a conflict if the same name is provided to two groups in the tool. If you want to say something to another user, the tool fails to identify which group out of the two having the same name is involved in the activity. In general, the tool does not allow for the duplication of names. The aforementioned area can be considered for improvement in the product.

Offers good support and multifactor authentication
I've been managing it in my company. I am more on the implementation side We implement the MFA feature, multifactor authentication and administrate the application. When it comes to authentication, the focus is always on security. That means using a separate device to verify the user logging in.…

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
 

Pros

"The product is easy for beginners to learn and use."
"PingFederate gives you granular control over the settings. There are many options for fine-tuning policies."
"This is a user-friendly solution."
"I like the self-service feature. The 502 and UBP systems are also excellent. PingID's ability to authenticate with SSH, RDP, and Windows login is pretty handy. It covers the entire spectrum of use."
"The solution is stable. We haven't experienced any bugs or glitches."
"It gets a mobility portal in place in conjunction with Office 365. It provides very good possibilities and it's much better than other technology that we have used before which was unstable and slower."
"The soundness of the solution is its most valuable feature. For example, if you are in our corporate network, you can log on without any traffic interfering."
"The solution is highly stable and scalable"
"It's pretty stable as a product."
 

Cons

"In the product, two groups cannot have the same name...In general, the tool does not allow for the duplication of names."
"I think that the connection with like Microsoft Word, especially for Office 365, is a weak point that could be improved."
"It requires some expertise to set up and manage."
"In the beginning, the initial setup was very complex."
"Notifications and monitoring are two areas with shortcomings in the solution that need improvement."
"Currently, the main integration is SAML-based, but other integration methodologies need to be supported."
"The product is not customizable."
"PingID's device management portal should be more easily accessible via a link. They provide no link to the portal like they do for the service. The passwordless functionality could be more comprehensive. You can't filter based on hardware devices. Having that filtering option would be great. Device authentication would be a great feature."
"The initial setup appears to be difficult in the beginning."
 

Pricing and Cost Advice

"The product is cheap since it is available on the cloud."
"PingID pricing is a ten out of ten because it's a little bit cheaper than other tools, such as Okta and ForgeRock, and supports multiple tools."
"Ping offers flexible pricing that's not standardized."
"PingID's pricing is pretty competitive."
"The product is costly."
"The pricing is neither too expensive nor too cheap."
