Open Banking selects Ping for identity security
Written by Chris Lemmon
Ping Identity, the verification security firm for over half of the Fortune 100 companies, has been chosen by Open Banking to provide the identity and access management (IAM) technology that will underpin the UK’s open banking framework.
Ping’s IAM solution suite will provide the hub for Open Banking, where all UK banks and financial services organisations, and third-party providers (TPPs) wanting to participate in the open banking ecosystem, will need to go through an enrolment and verification process before becoming trusted identities stored in a central Ping repository.
Since forming the partnership, Ping and Open Banking have collaborated on a number of essential framework elements, including credential storage, authentication, authorisation, and policy enforcement. Ping will also play an active role in the implementation of the framework, and in the service delivery.
Phil Allen, vice president EMEA at Ping Identity, said, “We are delighted to have been chosen by Open Banking as the IAM partner that will provide the hub for open banking in the UK.
“The experience that we have working with some of the world's leading retail and digital banks, challenger banks, and our partnership with Open Banking, has helped to develop a solution that allows organisations to not only meet PSD2 and open banking requirements, but deliver a competitive edge by offering a secure, seamless and personalised experience for customers.”
