BOSTON, MA and Tel Aviv, Israel March 5, 2019Silverfort, , the provider of next-generation authentication solutions, today announced that the Silverfort Next-Generation Authentication Platform received the Most Innovative Adaptive Risk-Based Authentication InfoSec Award for 2019 by Cyber Defense Magazine.

Corporate networks have been going through dramatic changes in the past few years, due to IT revolutions such as the cloud, Internet of Things (IoT), Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) that are creating new cybersecurity challenges. With countless devices and services, on-premises and in the cloud, and the dissolving network perimeters, traditional authentication solutions become irrelevant, and a new approach is needed. Silverfort seamlessly delivers secure authentication across all those systems and environments without requiring any agents or proxies. Thanks to its agentless architecture, it then continuously analyzes the behavior of all users and devices with an AI-driven risk engine, triggering step-up authentication and blocking threats in real-time without disrupting legitimate users.

“Silverfort has won the Most Innovative Adaptive Risk-Based Authentication InfoSec Award from our magazine because they are an innovator that might actually help you reach this goal and defeat the next generation of identity-based attacks,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, CEO, Cyber Defense Media Group, which is in its 7th year of publishing Cyber Defense Magazine and running these independent and prestigious awards.

“We are honored to be recognized by Cyber Defense Magazine for our achievements in building the next-generation of secure authentication solutions, that enable organizations to seamlessly protect any sensitive system, across distributed environments, and prevent unauthorized access as well as identity-based attacks in real-time,” said Hed Kovetz, CEO and Co-founder of Silverfort. “Silverfort is committed to solving the challenges our customers are facing by continuing to offer innovative, user friendly solutions.”
