Ping Identity has selected a new country manager for the Australia, New Zealand and Japan regions. 

Melbourne-based Ashley Diffey will be responsible for boosting sales, as well as customer support and services to drive demand in the region.

Diffey joined Ping Identity in 2018 as the company’s APAC channels and alliances manager – a role in which he was responsible for supporting and managing the channel partner ecosystem.

According to Ping Identity, Diffey’s appointment underscores the organisation’s strong internal culture and commitment to developing the strength of its team.

“Ashley Diffey combines his strong security and channel business background with a proven track record in driving enterprise-grade solutions to the industry,” comments Ping identity COO Kris Nagel.

“We’re thrilled to have him in this role and look forward to the positive impact that he will have on the business—especially as we continue to protect critical identity information across today’s organisations.”

Diffey has also worked with the likes of F5 Networks as director for A/NZ channel sales, and with Commvault as southern region channel sales manager.

“Ping Identity is recognised for its ability to provide comprehensive and innovative identity and access solutions, offering an opportunity for the region’s enterprises to integrate security as part of their overall risk management programs,” says Diffey.

“I look forward to working more closely with organisations across Australia and New Zealand in this new role, helping them choose the right security measures to protect their businesses and demonstrate sound governance.”

Ping Identity works with a variety of partners across Australia, New Zealand and Japan, such as Versent, NTT, Baidam Solutions, Fronde, Unify Solutions and Dimension Data. 

Local customers include public and private sector organisations across vertical markets, such as the Bank of New Zealand, Mortgage Choice and Griffith University. 

Additionally, Australia is one of the organisation’s global IDaaS hubs, which hosts a 24x7 support centre where it has a complete team including Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 engineers.

Ping Identity recently launched an enterprise-focused private cloud identity solution. The solution comprises cloud identity and access management, configurable authentication and directory services, and other features.

“Enterprises increasingly straddle hybrid IT and multi-cloud environments, as they prioritise a high standard of security and customer experience,” comments Ping Identity product management vice president Loren Russon.

“PingCloud Private Tenant is designed to simplify identity management while providing the ability to retain full control of data and security.”

PingCloud Private Tenant is now generally available.
