Boston and Tel Aviv, March 17, 2021 – Silverfort, the unified identity protection company, today announced it has been named a finalist for the Microsoft Security 20/20 Identity Trailblazer award. The company was honored among a global field of industry leaders for demonstrating excellence in innovation, integration, and customer implementation with Microsoft technology.
“Being named a finalist for the Microsoft Security 20/20 Award provides further validation for the value we provide joint customers by unifying identity protection across all their assets,” said Hed Kovetz, CEO and Co-Founder of Silverfort. “Enforcing access management and authentication policies on all resources across hybrid and multi-cloud environments is necessary for implementing Zero Trust security. Silverfort makes this possible by ‘bridging’ any kind of application, server or device into Entra ID (formerly Azure AD), without modifying those assets and without installing proxies.”
The second annual Microsoft Security 20/20 awards to be held May 12, 2021, will celebrate finalists in 18 categories spanning security, compliance, and identity. Silverfort has been nominated as a finalist for Identity Trailblazer.
“The pandemic has forever changed our perspective on the world, the role of technology, and how we work, learn, and live,” said Rani Lofstrom, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Microsoft Global Security Partnerships. “In recognition of our new reality, the theme for the Microsoft Security 20/20 Awards this year is ‘Perspective—Through the Looking Glass.’ The awards ceremony this year will honor our security partners who have gone above and beyond during an unprecedented time of change to support, secure, and protect remote workers everywhere.”
The Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA) was established to help further the security ecosystem, fostering an environment where solution providers can collaborate to create a future that’s safer for people and organizations alike. This year, the industry veterans in MISA will vote to select the winners of the Microsoft Security 20/20 awards, providing an opportunity for colleagues to honor their peers for delivering exceptional work to our shared customers.
