Vendors Included in Cool Vendor Report are Interesting, New and
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.”
