Ping Identity expands to five offices across Canada and doubles employee-base

Vancouver — 28 August 2012 — Ping Identity®, The Cloud Identity Security Leader™, today announced growth in business and employment opportunities in Canada. In the first half of 2012, more than 40 Canadian organizations, including Aldo, CIBC, the City of Calgary, Four Seasons, Pure Energy, RBC, Shaw Communication, TD Bank, TELUS, and Canada’s top two telecommunications companies have selected Ping Identity for single sign-on (SSO) and cloud identity management solutions. In addition, Ping Identity has expanded its operations into five Canadian provinces with offices in Calgary, Halifax, Ottawa, Toronto and Vancouver, and has doubled its Canadian employee-base within the last year.

Ping Identity has emerged as the vendor of choice for Canadian companies looking for standards-based cloud identity management software and solutions, and has tapped into the country’s strong supply of engineering talent to help meet growing demand for identity management solutions.

Ping Identity’s expansion in Canada mirrors the company’s overall growth and the rich pool of software talent available in the country. The majority of Ping Identity’s engineering and CTO teams are now stationed in Canada and the company plans to fill eight open positions this fall to meet immediate demand.

“Canadian organizations recognize the role identity plays in helping drive mobile, cloud and social networks, and are seeking solutions that provide secure access to these critical business applications,” said Neil McEvoy, CEO of the Cloud Best Practices Network. “Ping Identity is setting the bar in product, customer and employee excellence by hiring some of the best identity security talent in the region, and it’s exciting to see the benefits Canadian enterprises are realizing with cloud identity management solutions.”

Ping Identity is further expanding its presence in Canada by aligning with strategic partners and resellers across the country. The company recently partnered with CSC and works with other integrators like Sheepdog Inc. to reinforce its investment in Canada by helping provide thousands of users with Ping Identity’s identity management solutions.

Ping Identity provides cloud identity security solutions to more than 800 of the world's largest companies, government organizations and cloud businesses. Ping Identity is headquartered in Denver, Colorado, USA.
