BOSTON & TEL AVIV, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Silverfort, the provider of Next Generation Authentication solutions, today announced it has been included in the May 2019 “Cool Vendors in Identity and Access Management” 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.”
