Partnership delivers an easy way to protect enterprise assets, decrease fraud and maintain compliance in the cloud

Paris, France and San Francisco, CA — May 1st, 2013 — InWebo Technologies, the leading European provider of digital identities protection solutions, today announced the interoperability of its InWebo “cloud-native” authentication platform with Ping Identity to provide seamless two-factor authentication to thousands of commercial and internal applications federated through the Ping Identity platform.

PingIdentity_Logo“With PingFederate® and PingOne(TM) solutions, companies can easily give their users single sign-on access to multiple applications. With InWebo, those companies can just as easily pair SSO with strong authentication.” says Didier Perrot, CEO at InWebo, “With Ping Identity and InWebo companies don’t have to compromise security for the convenience of doing business in the cloud.”

“The federated web demands a new generation of access and authentication tools,” said Mike Desai, Ping Identity Senior Director of Worldwide Business Development. “With Ping Identity and InWebo, users have single sign-on access, supported by two-factor authentication no matter where they are and IT has a solution that can be easily deployed in an affordable way, but yet perform at the highest standard of security.”

By using InWebo with Ping Identity’s cloud identity management platform employees and business users can take advantage of single-sign-on, and connect from anywhere and any device without compromising enterprise security. All they have to do is enter their own single pin code in InWebo free authentication applet available on any device (phones, PC, Mac, tablets). Based on the pin code and unique secure elements, InWebo generates a one-time-code which is then passed on transparently by the PIng Identity platform to InWebo’s trusted saas identity server for verification.

Authentication does not depend on mobile network availability when getting one-time-code from the phone. Users can self-manage their own set of authentication modules; they can change devices or phone number without having to call customer support, or being logged out of their accounts. InWebo modules require minimal, or no installation at all.

InWebo implements “smart-card grade” two factor authentication in software. Its unique and patented dynamic keys technology makes it insensitive to reverse engineering attempts. On the server side (saas), the customer’s secret elements are uniquely protected by hardware-security-modules, which guarantees platform integrity and complete isolation between tenants. Even InWebo administrators will not have access to user credentials.

InWebo synchronizes on the fly with the customer’s Active Directory or any other user repository. It can be set-up in less than a day.
