Silverfort Wins Gold in 2018 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards

Silverfort’s innovative authentication platform named Best Multi-Factor Authentication Product in the 2018 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards

Tel Aviv, Israel. — Feb. 14, 2018 — Silverfort, which delivers secure authentication across entire corporate networks and cloud environments without any modifications to endpoints and servers, announced today that it was recognized as the gold winner of the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards in the Multi Factor Authentication category.

The annual Cybersecurity Excellence Awards honor individuals and companies that demonstrate excellence, innovation, and leadership in information security. Winners are determined by product strength and voted by members of the information security community.

“We are very honored to receive this award, which further validates our vision”, said Hed Kovetz, CEO and Co-Founder of Silverfort. “We believe that user authentication must be reinvented to fit the current technology environment. Regular authentication solutions can no longer handle the scale, diversity and dynamic nature of today’s networks – integration becomes endless and many sensitive resources are left exposed. We present a new breed of authentication products, that can instantly apply strong authentication across entire networks and cloud environments. We are receiving amazing support from our customers and promise to continue innovating and exceeding their expectations.”

Silverfort allows enterprises to eliminate the risk of passwords, by seamlessly protecting every authentication throughout the entire organization (including in hybrid and multi-cloud environments). This includes even resources that don’t support strong authentication at all, such as proprietary systems, IT infrastructure and IoT devices. In addition, Silverfort offers an advanced AI-based policy engine that can enforce adaptive authentication and real-time prevention across the network. Thanks to patent-pending technology, all this is achieved without any modification to endpoints and servers – meaning that no software agents or local configurations are needed. Silverfort enables enterprises to protect all their sensitive assets, prevent data breaches and achieve compliance.

“Congratulations to Silverfort for being recognized as the gold winner of the Multi-Factor Authentication product category in the 2018 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards,” said Holger Schulze, founder of the 400,000-member Information Security Community on LinkedIn that organizes the awards program. “With over 400 entries in more than 70 categories, the 2018 awards are highly competitive and all winners truly reflect the very best in today’s cybersecurity industry.”
