Ringgold and Ingenta Pioneer Centralization of Institutional Authentication Data

May 20, 2008

Ingenta, a technology provider, announced an agreement with Ringgold, a company that creates and maintains a database of identifiers for institutions. Ringgold now licenses institutional IP data from Ingenta’s global access control system. The partnership creates a system in which administrative updates to one registration database (Ingenta) may be securely syndicated (via Ringgold) to other participating publishers' systems. This extends the collaboration between Ringgold and Publishing Technology, parent company of Ingenta, VISTA and PCG.
