Silverfort Achieves Microsoft Co-Sell Status

Co-sell partnership to provide unparalleled access to Microsoft’s
Enterprise customers.

Silverfort offers the first next-generation authentication platform,
enabling enterprises to migrate sensitive assets securely to the cloud.

BOSTON & TEL AVIV, Israel–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Silverfort [] joins
a specialized group of high-growth startups, earning co-sell status as
part of Microsoft’s new program to collaborate on intensive joint sales
and go-to-market initiatives.

The company will partner with Microsoft sales teams to enable
enterprises to deliver adaptive authentication to any sensitive system,
including homegrown applications and IoT, without requiring any agents
or proxies and without any integration with individual systems. This
allows enterprises to securely migrate their systems to the Azure cloud
infrastructure, including homegrown and proprietary systems that were
left on-premise because they couldn’t be protected from unauthorized
access with secure authentication.

Hed Kovetz, CEO of Silverfort, said, “We’re thrilled that we
have achieved co-sell status. Landing the co-sell partnership with
Microsoft allows Silverfort to deliver next-generation authentication to
Microsoft customers and partners around the world, protect
authentication to sensitive assets they could not protect until today
and enable secure migration of proprietary systems to Azure.”

Silverfort’s ground-breaking platform uses an AI-Driven risk
engine to continuously analyze risk and trust levels, enabling customers
to enforce accurate and holistic adaptive authentication policies. It
helps organizations secure access to any sensitive system both
on-premise and in the cloud, prevent data breaches and comply with data
security regulations like PCI-DSS, GDPR, HIPAA, NY-DFS and others.

Charlotte Yarkoni, Microsoft’s Corporate VP, Growth and Ecosystems,
commented at the February 2018 launch of Microsoft for Startups, “We are
committing $500 million over the next two years to offer joint sales
engagements with startups, along with access to our
technology…Microsoft is partnering with founders and investors to help
propel their growth.”

Warwick Hill, Senior MD Microsoft for Startups Europe & Middle
East, added: “Over the last few years, corporate networks have gone
through dramatic changes due to IT revolutions such as cloud, IoT and
BYOD. This calls for a new approach to authentication, that will protect
those countless assets from unauthorized access. We are excited to join
hands with Silverfort to bring its agentless authentication platform to
Microsoft’s enterprise customers.”
