Establishing Trust and Security, One Identity at a Time

By

The following is a guest post from Loren Russon, Director of Product Management at Ping Identity, one of Box’s trusted partners for single sign-on (SSO) and identity management.  This article is the first in a series about security, collaboration, and content in the cloud.

In the interconnected world of cloud and mobile technology, identity authentication, authorization, and other access controls are defining a new perimeter. Just look at this year’s 22nd annual RSA Conference, where identity and access management is featured as a full track for the first time. As a leader in next-gen identity and access management solutions, Ping Identity is playing a key role in this discussion. With old ways of managing identities on-premise falling by the wayside, people still need simple and secure access to all of their apps, from anywhere and on any device. And identity’s continued importance can be seen in applications like Box.

Since 2010, Box and Ping have been securing customer identities and working together to bring the single sign-on experience to more than 600 customers. Box uses our Enterprise Identity Bridge, PingFederate®, as the cornerstone of its SSO, federated identity management, and mobile identity security strategy. Box turned to Ping to establish a key level of trust with its customers—and we take this relationship very seriously.
