Silverfort's unified identity protection platform for microsoft azure

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

Boston, Tel Aviv August 4th, 2020 – Silverfort, provider of the industry’s first agentless, proxyless authentication platform, announced today that it has raised $30 million in a Series B investment round. The new funding will allow Silverfort to further accelerate the company’s fast growth and meet the increasing customer demand for secure authentication and access solutions, which is boosted by the global shift to remote work. The financing was led by Aspect Ventures, with participation of Citi Ventures, Maor Investments, and the company’s early investors TLV Partners, StageOne Ventures and Singtel Innov8. Mark Kraynak from Aspect Ventures will be joining Silverfort’s board of directors. This funding round follows a milestone year of growth for Silverfort and brings the total investments in the company to $41.5 million.

“The shift to hybrid and multi-cloud environments, combined with the dramatic acceleration of remote work is driving the need for secure authentication and access of corporate users beyond the perimeter,” said Mark Kraynak, Venture Partner with Aspect Ventures. “Implementing these security controls system-by-system is no longer realistic. Silverfort brings a disruptive technology that is uniquely designed for the perimeter-less era. We are very impressed by the company’s customer traction, leadership and product vision, and excited to help it accelerate its growth.”

“We are proud to support Silverfort as investors, and to see a market leader come out of Citi’s Accelerator program” says Ornit Shinar, Head of Ventures Investments in Citi Israel. “Silverfort’s solution has proven not only to be valuable, but in many cases, a necessity. Especially these days, when millions of people around the world have to work and access corporate resources remotely.”

Silverfort developed an innovative platform that seamlessly enforces secure authentication and access policies (including Multi-Factor Authentication, Risk-Based Authentication, Zero Trust and more) for any user, device and system, both on-premises and in the cloud, without the need to deploy any agents, SDKs or proxies. Its unique architecture allows Silverfort to protect large and complex networks and cloud environments in a unified manner, with an AI-driven risk engine that automatically adjusts policies based on the user’s behavior, and prevents threats such as account takeover, ransomware and lateral movement.

“With the shift to remote working, secure employee authentication and access to company networks and systems have grown increasingly important for enterprises,” said William Woo, Group CIO at Singtel. “However, many large enterprises find it difficult to implement such controls across all their different environments quickly. Silverfort’s innovative solution simplifies this process without requiring system modifications, enabling them to save time and costs.”

Vendors Included in Cool Vendor Report are Interesting, New and Innovative

BOSTON, MA and Tel Aviv, Israel May 23, 2019Silverfort, the provider of Next Generation Authentication solutions, today announced it has been included in the  “Cool Vendors in Identity and Access Management for 2019” report by Gartner, Inc.

According to the report, “Digital businesses must achieve a great user experience, and support digital transformation and optimization as well as the shift of workloads to the cloud.”

The report recommends that “[t]o future-proof legacy IAM infrastructures to quickly deliver business value and support cyber defense, security and risk management leaders responsible for identity and access management should support a continuous adaptive risk and trust assessment posture by comprehensively mapping all authentication activity in an enterprise to support MFA for high-risk activity.”

Silverfort offers a unique next-generation authentication platform that can seamlessly enforce secure authentication for any user, device and asset, without requiring any software agents or proxies and without decrypting network traffic. This enables enterprises to address the new challenges introduced by the growing adaptation of cloud, IoT and BYOD, which are erasing traditional network perimeters.

Silverfort’s agentless and proxyless architecture enables it to protect sensitive systems that were considered “unprotectable” until today, like homegrown applications, IT infrastructure, IoT devices, dynamic IaaS environments and more. Silverfort monitors 20x-50x more access requests than other adaptive authentication solutions, and leverages a sophisticated AI-driven risk engine to continuously analyze all access activity, including user-to-machine and machine-to-machine, across on-premises and cloud environments.

We feel that being named a Cool Vendor in Identity and Access Management by Gartner is tremendous validation of our mission to enable secure authentication and access in today’s perimeterless enterprise environments” said Hed Kovetz, Silverfort Co-Founder and CEO. “We are experiencing rapid growth as companies are rethinking their authentication strategies in this new era, as well as looking to address existing security and compliance gaps.

The new partnership will allow joint customers to seamlessly extend Okta Adaptive Multi-Factor Authentication to any sensitive system, and securely migrate sensitive servers and applications to the cloud.

BOSTON, MA and Tel Aviv, Israel March 27, 2019Silverfort, the provider of Next-Generation Authentication solutions, today announces a new partnership with Okta, the leading independent provider of identity for the enterprise. By integrating Okta Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) with Silverfort’s agentless authentication platform, joint customers will be able to extend secure authentication to any sensitive system in any environment, and securely migrate sensitive on-premises assets to the cloud, without requiring software agents or proxies.

Seamlessly Extending MFA to Any Resource, Including ‘Unprotectable’ Systems

Today, MFA and adaptive authentication are available only for specific types or resources, such as SaaS applications and VPN gateways. Silverfort introduces a next-generation authentication platform which enables secure authentication for any system, including systems that were considered “unprotectable” until today, without any modifications to endpoints and servers. This includes homegrown applications, IT infrastructure, IoT devices, dynamic IaaS environments and more.

By integrating with Okta, joint customers will be able to seamlessly extend Okta MFA to any sensitive system and address a wide variety of security use cases and regularity compliance needs, without having to enroll users with a new MFA product.

“Okta and Silverfort bring together a powerful and unique solution that addresses one of the fastest growing security challenges in today’s enterprises,” says Hed Kovetz, CEO and Co-Founder of Silverfort. “Cloud, IoT and personal devices are changing our enterprise networks and erasing their perimeters. In this new reality, users must be authenticated before allowing them to access any sensitive resource, whether within the corporate network or in the cloud. We are proud to partner with Okta and excited to introduce the first end-to-end authentication solution that covers all users, devices and systems.”

Enable Secure Cloud Migration of Sensitive Servers and Applications

By enabling secure authentication for sensitive assets that cannot be protected today, such as homegrown, legacy and proprietary systems, Silverfort and Okta allow organizations to migrate them to the cloud without worrying about unauthorized access. Today, many companies are reluctant to move their sensitive workloads to the cloud unless they can ensure that no one else can access them. By seamlessly enabling MFA and adaptive authentication for any system, including those that don’t support it today, Silverfort and Okta eliminate this barrier.

“Enterprises are managing an increasingly broad spectrum of endpoints, with access management serving as one of the most effective ways to connect users with the technology they need while simultaneously securing an organization’s most valuable resources,” said Chuck Fontana, Vice President of Integrations and Strategic Partnerships at Okta. “As the technology landscape continues to evolve, it will be imperative for organizations to continue to adapt their multi-factor authentication capabilities, and we’re excited to work with Silverfort to meet that important security and user experience need.”

Silverfort will be demonstrating the joint solution at Oktane 2019,

April 1-4, Moscone West, San Francisco
