As you’re transitioning to the cloud, you might wonder which Ping Identity solution best meets your needs. This comparison shows the differences between our two cloud platforms and helps you select the best solution for your organization.
|PingOneCloud Platform||PingOne Advanced Services|
With the PingOne Cloud Platform, your users access applications on a subscription basis and never have to download, install, or upgrade applications. PingOne is a software as a service (SaaS) solution that resides on a remote cloud network and can be accessed through the platform or APIs.
The platform has a multi-tenancy SaaS architecture, which means that single instances of software and their supporting infrastructure serve multiple customers.
It uses an organization-based model to define tenant accounts and their related entities within the platform and cannot be deployed as a single tenant.
PingOne solutions can include any of these Ping Identity SaaS services:
Adopting a cloud-first or cloud-only strategy also helps you comply with rapidly changing electronic data handling regulations, especially in heavily regulated industries such as healthcare and financial services. You also trade capital costs, such as those associated with physical servers and data centers, for variable expenses with a pay-as-you-go system.
Whether you just want single sign-on (SSO), or a risk-based, adaptive authentication authority, starting off with a PingOne solution package lets you only pay for what you need and gives you room to grow.
PingOne Advanced Services has a single-tenancy architecture and provides you with your own virtual private cloud (VPC) network that you define. This virtual network can connect to any data source and closely resembles the network that you operate in your data centers, but in a scalable, secure, cloud environment.
This network is hosted by Amazon Web Services (AWS) and isolated from other virtual networks. Your development environments are also isolated from each other within the network and communicate with each other through a central hub.
This hub not only facilitates communication, but it also collects data from across your accounts and environments and helps you identify trends and potential threats.
PingOne Advanced Services includes:
These services can also be integrated with the PingOne Advanced Services, but are not deployed with the platform by default:
Most importantly, PingOne Advanced Services can connect to anything and everything, including legacy systems based on proprietary standards. This solution can also integrate with on-premise data or authentication sources, and act as either an identity provider (IdP) or a service provider (SP), which makes complex authentication flows possible.
