Today I’m happy to announce the public preview of the PingFederate configuration integration in the latest release of AADConnect. With this release customers can easily and reliably configure their Azure Active Directory environment to use PingFederate as their federation provider, and we’re excited to offer a more seamless integration experience to our customers.
Combined with Azure AD and Office 365, PingFederate provides customers with a modern identity and access management solution designed to meet complex enterprise demands. PingFederate enables SSO and identity federation by integrating silos of identities and applications inside the enterprise and across partner organizations.
To learn more about PingFederate and the integration in AADConnect please visit Ping’s website, and to see how to federate Azure Active Directory with PingFederate, please read through our AADConnect PingFederate documentation.
This AADConnect release also contains several bug fixes, and updates the AADConnect deployment with the latest service pack of SQL Server Express, which has a number of important security updates. To learn more about the latest release of AADConnect, please take a look at our online release notes.
We hope you take advantage of this integration and let us know what you think about it!
