Ping Identity Unveils Pricing Initiative

Ping Identity Corp. revealed Tuesday that it has launched a pricing initiative that aims to make licensing the company's federation server platform, PingFederate, more affordable for first-time partners. Under Ping Identity's Federation Endpoint Initiative, a single-connection annual subscription license for PingFederate would start at $9,000. Ping said the new licenses could easily be upgraded to support additional connections as customers' needs grow.
