The agentless solution analyzes user behavior across all corporate devices, resources and environments, to enable risk-based authentication policies with unparalleled coverage and accuracy.
BOSTON, Oct 23, 2018 — Silverfort, the provider of next-generation multi-factor authentication solutions, today announced a first-of-its-kind AI-based risk engine that analyzes activities across all on-premises and cloud environments, to dynamically calculate the most accurate risk-score per user, device and resource, and apply effective authentication policies.
Most Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) solutions were designed as point solutions for specific systems or for certain types of assets (e.g. web applications). As such, the risk analysis and adaptive authentication policies they can offer are limited to the specific systems they protect. They are incapable of protecting the wide variety of endpoints, applications, servers, legacy systems, infrastructure, data, cloud resources and IoT devices that exist in today’s organizations.
A Holistic Approach Provides Accurate Risk Analysis
Unlike these point solutions, Silverfort’s approach is fundamentally different. Silverfort looks at authentication at the network level instead of integrating MFA into each individual asset. This holistic approach enables unified authentication policies, visibility, user experience and risk analysis across all systems and environments.
Silverfort’s agentless architecture and holistic approach offer a big advantage over other solutions as they enable unparalleled visibility into all user activities, across all systems and environments, continuously analyzing risk for every authentication request with unmatched accuracy.
“Monitoring all authentication activities in one centralized platform allows Silverfort to analyze more data than any other authentication solution — typically hundreds of authentication requests per user per day.” explains Hed Kovetz, CEO and Co-Founder of Silverfort. “This provides a far more accurate risk score and enables adaptive policies that are less disruptive yet more effective.”
Continuously Assessing Risk with Silverfort’s AI-Based Risk Engine
Silverfort’s risk engine combines 3 core components that continuously analyze risk based authentication activities in real-time to detect a wide range of malicious behaviors and threats.

- Silverfort’s Risk Engine combines the following core components:
- Anomaly Detection: Identifies deviations from normal activities based on a rich behavioral profile of each user and device.
- Recognition of Known Malicious Patterns: Automatically recognizes patterns of brute force attacks, lateral movement, ransomware and more.
- Threat indications from 3rd party security solutions: Instantly steps up the authentication requirements in response to threat alerts from third party solutions.
The combination of these components results in the most accurate risk score and enables adaptive policies that are less disruptive yet more effective.
