                       Directory to Salesforce Platform

DENVER -- October 25, 2012

Ping Identity^®, The Cloud Identity Security Leader™, today announced Ping
IdentityBridge for Salesforce has launched on salesforce.com's AppExchange.
The new solution enables seamless user management and secure single sign-on
(SSO) services for Salesforce applications from on-premises environments such
as Microsoft Active Directory.

Built on the Salesforce Platform, the world’s leading cloud platform for
social and mobile business apps, Ping IdentityBridge for Salesforce is
immediately available for test drive and deployment on the AppExchange. The
solution will also provide “day one” support for Salesforce Identity, the
recently announced standards-based identity service from salesforce.com.

“Companies of all sizes want the benefits of transparent user management and
seamless single sign-on for their business-critical resources — whether for
on-premises applications or a SaaS-based solution like Salesforce,” said Roger
Oberg, vice president of Marketing for Ping Identity. “By extending user
management and standards-based SSO to the entire Salesforce Platform,
including Salesforce Identity when it becomes available, customers will be
able to tap into a wide variety of applications while leveraging their own
existing identity infrastructure.”

“Customers worldwide rely on applications from the Salesforce AppExchange
ecosystem to help transform the way they connect with customers, partners and
employees in the social era,” said Mike Rosenbaum, senior vice president
AppExchange and Force.com Operations, salesforce.com. “By leveraging the power
of the Salesforce Platform, partners like Ping Identity provide customers with
valuable service – such as simple, secure, SSO – to accelerate customer
success.”

Seamless, Secure and Simple

Ping IdentityBridge for Salesforce is designed to perform three crucial tasks
simply and securely:

  *Seamlessly extend user identities from Active Directory to Salesforce
  *Authenticate users
  *Provide SSO from the desktop directly to Salesforce

Ping IdentityBridge for Salesforce represents a natural extension of Ping
Identity’s existing standards-based solutions for Salesforce. The Salesforce
Platform’s support for the SAML federation and SCIM provisioning standards
signifies the vital role of industry standards that Ping Identity has long
championed.
