In today’s perimeterless networks, with countless different users, devices and systems communicating with each other across dynamic on-premise and cloud environments, it is no longer possible to assume trust. Validation of user identities and continuous analysis of risk and trust levels are becoming essential, especially for those looking to implement a Zero Trust security approach. However, implementing secure authentication and access system-by-system with agents and proxies is not realistic, nor will it provide the needed results.
Silverfort’s unique agentless and proxyless solution is possible thanks to a combination of several innovative technologies:
Ability to Monitor Authentication and Access Requests Without Agents or Proxies
Silverfort monitors all access requests of users and machines by leveraging native features of authentication protocols and identity management solutions in
a unique way.
Most enterprise systems and devices use the same few authentication protocols, such as LDAP/S, Kerberos, NTLM, OpenID Connect, RADIUS, and more. Silverfort’s patent-pending technology monitors and actively protects all those access requests, without requiring any modifications to endpoints or servers, and without deploying proxies between them.
Silverfort’s innovative approach was considered unattainable in the past, because authentication protocols are often encrypted, and analyzing them in a non-intrusive manner seemed impossible.
Silverfort achieved a technological breakthrough that allows it to analyze encrypted authentication and authorization messages in real-time and actively protect them, without decrypting them, and without the need for any encryption keys or privileges.
This gives Silverfort a strategic advantage with a unique technology that other vendors cannot match.
Holistic and Continuous
AI-Driven Risk Analysis
“AI is only as good as the data you give it”
— Dr. Nicola Millard
Silverfort typically monitors 20x-50x more data than any other risk-based authentication solution, thanks to its agentless and proxyless architecture. Silverfort is the first unified authentication platform that analyzes all user and machine access activity, across all enterprise networks and cloud environments, not only at the perimeter but within the network too. The holistic nature of Silverfort’s AI-driven risk engine allows it to continuously analyze risk with unparalleled accuracy to deliver intelligent authentication and Zero Trust policies for real-time threat prevention.
