IntraLinks Simplifies User Interface With New Single Sign-On Framework From Ping Identity Corporation

Customers Quickly and Securely Access All IntraLinks Exchanges With One Login and Password

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - January 27, 2010) - IntraLinks®, the leading provider of critical information exchange solutions, today announced it will leverage Ping Identity Corporation's PingFederate® solution for secure Internet single sign-on (SSO) and cross-domain user management to simplify the user experience. The SSO solution is currently being used in limited release by a leading Japanese internet financial service group. This single sign-on framework will be used to support additional customers, as well as for IntraLinks' own internal needs.

"Single sign-on works behind the scenes to authenticate each user so they can securely access all of their IntraLinks Exchanges without the headache of remembering multiple passwords and log-ins," said John Landy, CTO of IntraLinks. "By working together with Ping Identity, our customers worldwide will benefit from increased ease of use and seamless access to their most mission-critical information without sacrificing the security of their data."

IntraLinks was able to quickly and easily deploy PingFederate thanks to its pre-designed connection templates and automated user provisioning for SaaS applications. IntraLinks holds a patent on the use of single sign-on technology for accessing online information on a permissioned basis.

"Customers across a broad range of industries use Ping Identity's SAML standards-based solutions to eliminate burdensome passwords, increase user adoption, improve security and reduce administrative overhead," said Mike Desai, Director of Business Development and Strategic Cloud Alliances for Ping Identity. "We are thrilled to have IntraLinks as one of our highly valued SaaS Partner Program members, supporting them with a streamlined approach to secure single sign-on for their customer base."
