Ping Identity Launches Channel, MSP Partner Programs

Ping Identity has launched an enhanced partner program.

The PingPartner Network is focused on the identity access management (IAM) market, which is predicted to reach $18.3 billion by 2019. The program gives partners access to Ping’s Identity Defined Security Platform, which takes an agnostic approach to identity – including hybrid, cloud and on-premises offerings, and consists of three distinct programs: Channel, Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and Alliance.

Channel Program

Partners can qualify for the Platinum, Gold or Referral programs for different levels of support and benefits, including in person pre-sales training, web-based trainings, certifications and competitive margins.

Managed Service Providers (MSPs) Program

The MSP Program is a single-level program with a variety of benefits, including on location technical support training, pre-sales and post-sale support training, implementation training at Ping Identity, resale and referral margins, a dedicated Ping Identity partner manager and access to sales and marketing tools.

Alliance Program

The Alliance Program caters to SaaS providers and technology partners. Current SaaS provider members include Netskope, ServiceNow, Box and Concur and current technology partner members include UnboundID and Radiant Logic. Depending on an organization’s partner level, benefits of the Alliance program include web-based sales and pre-sales training as needed, free implementation training on all products, referral margins, a dedicated account manager, testing environments, access to Ping products, as well as access to sales and co-marketing investment.

Ping Identity is built to allow only trusted employees, partners and customers to access the right applications using any trusted device by applying an adaptive, risk-driven model for access control, with continuous evaluation of authentication and authorization factors. The approach replaces firewalls as a defensive barrier.

“Ping Identity has a long history of strong partnerships across the globe that have contributed significantly to our growth,” said Andre Durand, CEO at Ping Identity. “Our partners are a valuable extension of our own expertise — bringing their capabilities into play and bringing Ping in where they can because we have the most flexible, proven identity solution. Today’s announcement solidifies our partnership network as a more explicit program that benefits all of the organizations we work with and offers great opportunity for those we may partner with in the future.”
