The State of the
Identity Attack Surface:
Insights into
Critical Protection Gaps

Extend MFA
to ‘Unprotectable Systems’

Enable agentless and proxyless MFA protection for any device, server or application, including resources that couldn’t be protected before, to prevent data breaches and meet compliance and cyber insurance requirements.

Discover and Protect
Service Accounts

Automatically map non-human identities (machine-to-machine access), audit and analyze their behavior, and prevent unauthorized use with a Zero Trust approach, without having to rotate their passwords.

Identity Threat
Detection & Response (ITDR)

Detect account takeover, lateral movement and ransomware propagation, and enforce real-time response with adaptive MFA and blocking to stop attacks and reduce ‘noise’ for your SOC.

Silverfort is the only solution that can prevent ransomware attacks by enforcing MFA on the command-line access tools these attacks use to propagate in the network.

Silverfort protects our user accounts with MFA, it protects our service accounts, our on-prem apps, our Active Directory and also our custom apps.

Identity-based attacks are really important to us. Silverfort’s end-to-end risk-based authentication enables us to respond efficiently and in a timely manner.

We realized that to protect against ransomware attacks you must guard your privileged human and service accounts. This is where Silverfort comes in.

Why is Identity Protection Broken?

Unified Identity Protection

Legitimate User

Compromised User

‘Unprotectable’ Resources

Many types of assets and interfaces don’t support MFA, conditional access and visibility, including legacy systems, IT infrastructure, command line tools and more

Relying on Agents & Proxies

Agents and proxies are difficult to implement and maintain, and they almost never provide full coverage in today’s perimeterless enterprise environments

Fragmented IAM Stack

Hybrid environments require multiple IdPs for different on-prem and cloud resources, resulting in siloed policies, limited visibility, and inconsistent user experience

Service Account Blind Spot

Service accounts (machine-to-machine access) are often highly privileged and very difficult to discover, monitor and protect with password rotation tools

MFA Anywhere

Extending MFA and other identity security controls across all on-prem and cloud resources, including those that couldn’t be protected before

Agentless & Proxyless

Innovative technology that seamlessly adds a layer of security to existing authentication protocols (both cloud and legacy) in a non-intrusive manner

Unified Platform

Unified policy enforcement engine at the backend of all IAM solutions (using native integrations), providing holistic visibility and Zero Trust security

Service Account Protection

Automated discovery, monitoring and conditional access policies for all service accounts, enabling ‘virtual fencing’ without requiring password rotation

What is your identity protection challenge?


Agentless MFA

Extend MFA protection to all your cloud and on-prem resources, including those that traditional MFA cannot support


Securing Service Accounts

Automate the discovery, monitoring and protection of all service accounts in your environment without password rotation


Ransomware Protection

Prevent ransomware attacks from propagating within your environment, limiting their impact to just the initially infected machine


Privileged Access Management

Configure MFA-based access policies for your privileged accounts, eliminating attackers’ ability to abuse compromised credentials for malicious access


Lateral Movement Prevention

Enforce MFA on PsExec, Powershell, WMI and other command line tools to prevent Pass the Hash, Pass the Ticket, and other TTPs


Hybrid IAM Consolidation

Connect your legacy, hybrid and multi-cloud resources into your cloud IdP of choice, including those that couldn’t be migrated before


Identity Zero Trust

Enforce a unified policy layer on top of all your IAM platforms to gain full context, least privilege access and user verification everywhere


Visibility & Risk Analysis

Gain real-time insight into the full context and risk of all authentications and access attempts across your hybrid network


Risk-Based Authentication

Combine high precision ML-based risk analysis with secure access controls so only legitimate users can log in to your resources
