Silverfort, the provider of Next-Generation Authentication solutions, today announced it has received a 451 Firestarter award from leading technology research and advisory firm 451 Research, recognizing the company’s innovative contribution within the technology industry.
451 Research’s Firestarter program recognizes exceptional innovation within the information technology industry. Introduced in 2018, and awarded quarterly, the program is exclusively analyst-led, allowing its team of technology and market experts to highlight organizations they believe are significantly contributing to the overall pace and extent of innovation in the technology market.
“We are honored to be recognized as a ‘451 Firestarter’ and to receive this recognition for our technology and vision,” says Hed Kovetz, Silverfort Co-Founder and CEO. “This award validates our mission to enable seamless secure authentication and Zero Trust in today’s perimeterless enterprise networks and cloud environments, allowing enterprises to secure any sensitive system or resource with a holistic approach that does not require any software agents or proxies.”
“With the growth of cloud services and applications, IoT devices, and mobility, everything is connected to everything, which implies that authentication needs to take place nearly everywhere,” said Garrett Bekker, 451 Research. “Silverfort’s no-agent, no-proxy approach to risk-based authentication can be applied to a broad range of assets and computing frameworks (public cloud, on-prem, SaaS, hybrid), and in that sense seems to lend itself particularly well to a zero-trust strategy.”
Silverfort delivers secure authentication and Zero Trust across corporate networks and cloud environments, without deploying any software agents or inline proxies. Using patent-pending technology, Silverfort enables risk-based multi-factor authentication for all sensitive users, devices and resources, including systems that could not be protected until today, such as homegrown applications, IT infrastructure, file systems, machine-to-machine access and more. Silverfort allows organizations to prevent data breaches and achieve compliance instantly, by preventing identity-based attacks across complex, dynamic networks and cloud environments.
The company has been named a Gartner ‘Cool Vendor’ and received worldwide recognition, including the Most Innovative Adaptive Authentication InfoSec Award 2019, InfoSecurity 2018 Global Excellence Awards for Best Authentication Product, and is a gold winner of the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards in the Multi-Factor Authentication category.
