Optix and Silverfort: A Case Study

Case Study

Renewed Cyber Insurance Policy and Prevented an Lateral Movement Attack


Optix’s cyber insurance provider tightened their requirements for Optix to renew their cyber insurance policy. Optix needed to deploy Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) on all domain admin access requests. Once Optix implemented Silverfort across its environments, they were able to renew their cyber insurance policy shortly after. Two months after deploying Silverfort, Optix was targeted by a malicious actor who was trying to move laterally across their network. This attack was unsuccessful due to Silverfort enabling Optix to identify the root cause and immediately blocked all access for the user whose credentials had been compromised.

In this case study you’ll learn:

  • How Silverfort enabled Optix to meet their new cyber insurance requirements for MFA protection
  • How Optix gained complete visibility into their service accounts
  • How Silverfort’s service accounts capabilities detected and prevented an lateral movement attack
