Silverfort, Ping Identity Partner on Risk-based Cloud, Hybrid Authentications

Silverfort, a unified identity protection company, announced it has joined forces with Ping Identity to help customers unify risk analysis of authentication and access attempts across on-premises and multi-cloud environments to detect and prevent identity-based attacks.

According to the Verizon 2021 Data Breach Investigations Report, 61 percent of breaches are attributed to compromised credentials, which is the primary means by which hackers access sensitive data.

The integration of the Silverfort platform with PingFederate enables organizations to apply universal risk-based monitoring and assessment of authentication activity for on-premises and cloud environments, and proactively prevent threats.

The combined solution makes it possible to extend identity-based controls to unprotected on-premises resources including servers and workstations, homegrown legacy apps, file shares and more. These capabilities can detect advanced attacks in hybrid environments with unmatched accuracy, trigger security policy enforcement and maintain a friction-free user experience.

The Silverfort-PingFederate integration provides the following benefits:

  • Transparently redirects authentication requests from all applications federated by PingFederate to the Silverfort platform for risk analysis
  • Silverfort evaluates each request based on the full context of the user account, including its recent on-premises authentication and access activity
  • If risky behavior is detected, Silverfort applies an access policy that is enforced across the customer’s entire environment, including on-premises, cloud and multi-cloud
  • Provides protection against lateral movement by attackers across hybrid infrastructures as well as full visibility and an audit trail of each user’s authentication activity

On Tuesday, June 22 from 1:30pm – 1:55pm MDT, Yaron Kassner will present a virtual session at the Ping Identity identiverse conference entitled “Why Lateral Movement is an Identity-based Attack.” To register, visit this link.

The Silverfort and PingFederate solutions are available immediately from Silverfort and Ping Identity, respectively, and their business partners worldwide.
