While regular Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) products can only protect specific types of resources (typically VPN gateways and browser-based web apps), Silverfort can easily enforce MFA for any type of resource. This includes even IT infrastructure, remote access to machines and VMs, connected devices, file servers and applications, including proprietary and 3rd party systems that don’t support MFA at all.
Silverfort’s unique technology allows it to apply MFA without any integration with the protected resource – no software agents, SDKs or configurations are required. Silverfort automatically discovers all users, devices and resources across the corporate network and cloud infrastructure, allowing security teams to enforce MFA for any sensitive scenario directly from the Silverfort admin panel.
By monitoring and analyzing all authentication activity across the entire organization, Silverfort can deliver adaptive authentication to every user, device and resource. Silverfort analyzes user behavior in real-time to determine the risk score of each authentication request. It then automatically decides whether step-up authentication is required. Silverfort can deliver adaptive authentication even to systems that cannot support such advanced technology at all, without any integration.
In addition, Silverfort’s broad coverage allows it to collect much more authentication data compared to other adaptive authentication products, and therefore reach more informed authentication decisions. Silverfort can also further enrich its behavior analytics via external sources, by integrating with 3rd party UEBA solutions.
Silverfort can apply the same protection layers across different environments, to achieve holistic protection even in hybrid and multi-cloud environments. Silverfort’s protection layers are applied automatically, regardless of the resource’s location, even when resources are added to the network, or moved from one environment to another (for example during cloud migration). Silverfort allows centralized control, unified visibility and consistent user experience for all authentication across the different environments.
Each Silverfort virtual appliance can monitor and protect authentication requests from any environment. Therefore, hybrid environments can be protected without any on-prem deployment. In addition, Silverfort will soon be available also as SaaS, allowing organizations to protect all authentication and access inside their networks without any software installation.
Service accounts are used by various corporate systems to communicate with other systems and automate processes. Such accounts are a prime target for attackers, since they are often equipped with high privileges and their passwords are rarely changed. But because these accounts are used by machines, rather than humans, they cannot be protected with regular multi-factor authentication methods.
Silverfort introduces a unique capability for securing the use of service accounts, which prevents unauthorized entities from stealing or misusing them. This is achieved without any change to the relevant systems. Silverfort also provides full visibility and auditing regarding the use of such accounts.
Silverfort’s unique technology allows it to automatically discover all users, groups, devices and resources across the corporate network and cloud infrastructure. It then begins to analyze all authentication activity and generate a real-time access map of the entire organization. Silverfort can identify authentication vulnerabilities, such as the use of legacy authentication protocols or weak passwords. It can also detect data breach attempts, including brute force attacks and the use of stolen credentials.
Silverfort’s visibility tools also support the platform’s active protection capabilities. Advanced auditing and reports help security teams in identifying where to apply strong authentication policies. In addition, Silverfort’s vulnerability assessment and threat detection can be used as a trigger for automatic prevention and step-up authentication policies.
