HARTFORD, Conn.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Geezeo, a diversified online banking provider that offers online financial management (OFM) tools, personal financial management (PFM), social networking and web-based community platforms to financial institutions, has partnered with Ping Identity, the leader in Internet Identity Security, to provide Single Sign-On access to its Cloud-based Personal Financial Management Service. Geezeo is one of more than one hundred companies to join Ping Identity’s SaaS Partner Program.
“We’ve processed more than half a million SSO transactions so far this year, and we’ve got plenty of room to grow”
“We looked at various vendors, but only Ping Identity met our entire checklist,” said Geezeo Vice President of Technology James Elwood. “It was more robust than anything that we could have built on our own.”
Leveraging Amazon EC2 as its hosting platform, Geezeo offers an integrated suite of Online Financial Management (OFM) tools and services including Personal Financial Management (PFM) software for banks and credit unions. With the Single Sign-On capabilities Geezeo now offers via its partnership with Ping, more than a hundred thousand customers across a dozen banks and credit unions securely access those tools and their banking information using a secure, single login at the their bank’s Website.
“We’ve processed more than half a million SSO transactions so far this year, and we’ve got plenty of room to grow,” Elwood said. “Credit Unions want to take the chore out of banking, and SSO is going to give them that. Ping Identity gives us a proven SSO solution that’s up and running on a customer site in less than a week.”

Ping SaaS partners have the option to bundle Ping Identity SaaS Single Sign-On into their existing business application offerings, resell Ping Identity solutions as add-ons to their price lists or refer clients to Ping Identity for SSO support, in which case the vendor is rewarded a referral fee.
