|As cyber-security breaches lead headlines on an almost daily basis, and individuals and corporations grapple with identity management, Denver-based Ping Identity is thriving in the space of "Next Gen Identity" security management. Ping works at the intersection of mobile, social and cloud to secure customer, partner, and employee identities. The company has ramped up significantly over the 12 years since its founding, recently taking a $35 million growth equity round of financing in addition to the $44 million Series F it closed last year. |
Ping has been a proud member of CTA for many years and CEO Andre Durand has held a board seat since 2012. Andre's commitment to the Colorado technology scene is far-reaching, and the Ping staff, outside of growing a phenomenal company, can be found building community and wearing their signature red berets all around the state.
