Silverfort Named Winner of the Coveted Global InfoSec Awards during RSA Conference 2022

Silverfort wins Most Innovative Identity Protection in 10th Annual Global InfoSec Awards at #RSAC 2022

BOSTON & TEL AVIV, June 6, 2022 – Silverfort, provider of the world’s first Unified Identity Threat Protection platform, is proud to announce we have won the following award from Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM), the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine:

  • Most Innovative Identity Protection

As the identity threat landscape has evolved and shifted, Silverfort has increased innovation and maximized on partnerships to provide the first Unified Identity Threat Protection platform. Silverfort’s Identity Threat Detection and Response (ITDR) and Identity Threat Prevention (ITP) capabilities deliver a unique, unified layer to Identity and Access Management (IAM). While many security innovations seek to cover the entire threat landscape singularly, Silverfort continues to address the threat landscape in a holistic way by providing an additional layer of protection to a customer’s existing security infrastructure, without requiring modifications to a customer’s endpoints, servers or applications.

“It is a distinguishable acknowledgement to be awarded the Most Innovative Identity Protection award, as Silverfort has strived to encompass innovation from day one. We’re thrilled to receive one of the most prestigious and coveted cybersecurity awards from Cyber Defense Magazine, during their 10th anniversary as an independent cybersecurity news and information provider,” said Hed Kovetz, Silverfort’s Co-Founder and CEO. “Unified identity threat protection and response is vital across all organizations. Identity security can no longer be a ‘feature’ that works in silos within each IAM platform. This lack of end-to-end identity threat protection has turned identity into today’s #1 attack surface, with compromised credentials being leveraged in 80% of all data breaches and ransomware campaigns. Silverfort has created a new approach to identity security: a unified Zero Trust security layer that works on top of all modern and legacy IAM infrastructure, and covers all users, resources and environment. We value the recognition of our efforts to elevate the strength of identity security.”

“We scoured the globe looking for cybersecurity innovators that could make a huge difference and potentially help turn the tide against the exponential growth in cybercrime. Silverfort is absolutely worthy of this coveted award and consideration for deployment in your environment,” said Yan Ross, Editor of Cyber Defense Magazine.
