Excellent product

What do you like best?

Ease of use- ping federate is extremely easy to use. Creating a connection is simple and upgrading to a newer version is simpler.

Support from ping- we have had great experience with the pong support. They are a very knowledgeable bunch of engineers.

The logging could have been a bit simpler. An entry to show the completion of the SSO would be good.

Ping federate is very good tool for SSO and Oauth setup. It is simple to use and easy to integrate. We were really happy with the way the support team has performed. The server startup is very quick. It generally comes up in a minute.

We are using pong federate mainly for federation and it has been a breeze to use this product.
