Silverfort applies an innovative architecture and a powerful AI-driven risk engine to monitor, analyze and secure all authentication and access across the enterprise – without requiring software agents, inline proxies or code change. Silverfort seamlessly enforces Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), Risk-Based Authentication (RBA), and Zero-Trust policies to secure access to sensitive systems across on-premises and cloud environments, including systems that were considered ‘unprotectable’ until today. This includes homegrown applications, IT infrastructure, file systems, IoT devices, dynamic IaaS environments, machine-to-machine access and more.
“Corporate networks are going through dramatic changes in recent years, due to IT revolutions such as the cloud, IoT, and BYOD. In this new reality, with countless devices and services all connected to each other without clear perimeters, verifying user identities and controlling their access to sensitive resources becomes more important than ever, but also far more difficult to achieve,” said Hed Kovetz, Silverfort Co-Founder and CEO. “We are proud to be recognized by CRN as one of 46 hot security startups that solution providers should be aware of.”
CRN’s Emerging Vendors list honors technology suppliers driving innovation across the IT channel. It also provides a valuable resource for solution providers looking to incorporate cutting-edge technology into their portfolios.
Emerging Vendors are vetted and selected by CRN’s editorial team. They provide state-of-the-art technology to help solution providers meet complex IT market demands, achieve bottom-line results, and deliver best-in-class offerings.
“CRN’s 2019 Emerging Vendors list recognizes new, rapidly growing vendors that are making significant IT channel contributions,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “It honors groundbreaking vendors that provide sophisticated technology to drive channel growth — and remain committed to ongoing innovation to shape the channel for years to come.”
