Mississauga, Ontario, Canada – March 13th, 2023 — WinMagic Inc, the only endpoint disk encryption company to also offer online authentication, announced a partnership with Ping Identity, the intelligent identity solution for the enterprise, to provide a simplified security approach to customers through centralized identity and access management (IAM) and an improved digital experience.
WinMagic’s passwordless authentication solution, MagicEndpoint, works with Ping’s Federation Hub to deliver secure, end-to-end user experiences. With the solution’s preboot authentication and Windows login capability, WinMagic and Ping Identity now enable a better, more secure authentication experience for its users. PingFederate, Ping’s federation server, will be able to utilize MagicEndpoint to identify device-level risk signals for addressing non-compliant configurations.
WinMagic joins a growing list of solution providers, resellers, managed service providers (MSPs), and global systems integrators (GSIs) developing IAM solutions and services through the Ping Global Channel Partner Program. As an integral part of Ping Identity’s solutions for the government, PingFederate is essential to the authentication phase of the identity and access management user journey. Partner solutions built in conjunction with Ping’s solutions help organizations compete in the digital era where user experience is increasingly important and security cannot be sacrificed.
“Our partnership with Ping Identity related to its PingFederate software will introduce passwordless preboot authentication with PIV/CAC login and seamless access to applications with no user action required,” said Ryder Gaston, chief revenue officer at WinMagic. “This solution will provide phishing-resistant MFA with continuous authentication and verification, supporting Zero Trust frameworks. We look forward to delivering next-level security with this joint venture.”
“The success of modern enterprises relies on the ability to easily integrate IAM into a Zero Trust framework and create turnkey multi-vendor solutions that orchestrate the entire identity journey,” said Alex Ryals, vice president of channel sales at Ping Identity. “We’re happy to partner with WinMagic to tackle the robust security challenges organizations face, and to improve the digital experiences for all customers within our ecosystem.”
