After Announcing a Co-Sell Partnership, the Companies Strengthen Their Relationship to Drive Secure Authentication in the Perimeter-less Cloud Era
BOSTON, MA and Tel Aviv, Israel Oct. 22, 2019 — Silverfort, the provider of agentless authentication and Zero Trust security solutions, announced today that it has joined the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association , a collaborative ecosystem of independent software vendors that have integrated their security solutions to provide better security for our mutual customers.
Silverfort collaborates with Microsoft and other Association members to create a unified AI-driven authentication platform. Thanks to patent-pending technology and integrations with Microsoft’s identity products, including Azure Active Directory, Silverfort seamlessly delivers secure authentication and ‘Zero Trust’ security policies across all sensitive corporate assets, both on-premises and in the cloud, without the need to install any agents or proxies. This allows enterprises to protect critical assets that don’t support secure authentication today, and to migrate legacy servers and applications to the cloud (‘Lift-and-Shift’) without worrying about unauthorized access.
“We are proud to strengthen our partnership with Microsoft and to join this important initiative,” said Hed Kovetz, CEO and Co-Founder at Silverfort. “Together with Microsoft we solve one of the top barriers for cloud migration, by seamlessly enabling secure authentication and access for any digital asset, including legacy and homegrown systems that enterprises are looking to migrate to the cloud without compromising on security.”
“We are delighted to welcome Silverfort to the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association,” says Ryan McGee, director of security product marketing, Microsoft. “The cloud era has changed how we have to think about security, where identity is the new control plane. This creates a growing need for delivering secure authentication across dynamic hybrid environments and helping organizations migrate their assets securely to the cloud. We are pleased that Silverfort integrates with Microsoft’s identity products to support this goal.”
Silverfort is also a member of Microsoft’s co-sell program and works with Microsoft’s sales teams to deliver next-generation authentication to Microsoft customers and partners around the world, protect authentication to sensitive assets they could not protect until today and enable secure migration of proprietary systems to Azure.
