Platform Enables Organizations to Centralize Identity and Access Management (IAM) for Cloud and Legacy On-premises Resources on Azure Active Directory, Including Those That Couldn’t be Migrated Before
Boston and Tel Aviv, March 2, 2021 – Silverfort, a unified identity protection company and member of the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA), announced a new offering that enables organizations to consolidate Identity and Access Management for all their devices, applications and environments on Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD). This new solution is being showcased during a virtual live session at Microsoft Ignite and follows dozens of enterprise customer wins involving Silverfort’s core platform over the past several months.
The Silverfort Unified Identity Protection platform allows customers to migrate all their hybrid assets, including non-web systems, into Azure AD where they can be centrally managed as if they were modern web applications. This enables organizations to unify security policies, visibility and user experience across all systems and environments, including legacy on-premises resources that do not natively support integration with Azure AD or existing application proxies.
“Identity is becoming the primary security control plane for enterprises, but it’s currently built in silos, lacking unified control and leaving many sensitive assets exposed,” said Hed Kovetz, CEO and Co-Founder of Silverfort. “Azure AD provides advanced IAM visibility and security and Silverfort now extends its coverage far beyond any other IAM solution, enabling unified identity protection. We are excited to collaborate with Microsoft on this solution that we think will benefit every enterprise.”
“Microsoft has been on a mission to help companies protect their corporate identities, and take advantage of Azure AD as a universal identity platform for the modern workforce,” said Sue Bohn, Partner Director, Microsoft Identity Division at Microsoft Corp. “The integration with Silverfort allows customers to extend the power and flexibility of Azure AD to many additional resources and applications across hybrid and multi-cloud environments, and unify their identity management and protection on Azure AD.”
Silverfort uses agentless and proxyless technology to seamlessly connect with IAM solutions across hybrid environments, and automatically discovers and analyzes applications and resources, including those that still rely on passwords and legacy protocols. The platform accelerates and optimizes the migration of all applications to cloud-native identity platforms like Azure AD, while serving as a ‘bridge’ for assets that could not be migrated before, such as:
- Legacy and homegrown applications
- IT infrastructure
- Active Directory managed servers and endpoints
- Assets that reside on other cloud environments, including multi-cloud
- File shares and databases
- Command-line tools and other admin interfaces
- Machine-to-machine access (service accounts)
- Industrial and medical systems
Silverfort is the provider of the first Unified Identity Protection Platform that consolidates IAM security controls across corporate networks and cloud environments to block identity-based attacks. Using innovative agentless and proxyless technology, Silverfort seamlessly integrates with all IAM solutions, unifies their risk analysis and security controls, and extends their coverage to assets that could not be protected until today, such as homegrown and legacy applications, IT infrastructure, file systems, command-line tools, machine-to-machine access and more. The company has been named a Gartner ‘Cool Vendor’, a 451 Research ‘FireStarter’, and a CNBC ‘Upstart 100’. To learn more visit us on the web, and follow us on LinkedIn and Twitter.
