Cloud Distribution & Silverfort partner to offer the first non-intrusive Multi-Factor Authentication Platform
New partnership brings partner opportunities leveraging AI-driven adaptive MFA without the need for software agents or in-line proxies.
Reading, UK – 7th February 2019 – The “Cloud First” Next-generation value added distributor (VAD) Cloud Distribution, specialists in Cyber Security, Networking and Data Protection Solutions is announcing a new partnership with Silverfort to give reseller partners a huge advantage with a next-generation authentication platform that offers agentless MFA to protect all systems, including systems considered “unprotectable” until today. This includes homegrown applications, critical IT infrastructure, production servers, IaaS, regulated systems (financial, healthcare, etc), administrative access (e.g. PAM, RDP, SSH), file shares, databases, IoT, SCADA and more.
The implementation requirements of mainstream MFA solutions make it unfeasible to implement them on many sensitive systems. As a result, these systems remain unprotected and exposed to threats. Silverfort’s non-intrusive MFA is the first solution that enables organisations to secure access to any sensitive system, no matter what type of system it is, or whether it is on-premises or in the cloud.
“This partnership offers an advanced and comprehensive solution to the market that cuts to the core of most cyber breaches, the use of compromised credentials. Partners can now go back into all their clients they sold 2FA and MFA to before and offer to ‘protect the unprotectable’. Commented Adam Davison, Sales and Marketing Director for Cloud Distribution. “Our security portfolio is one that embraces artificial intelligence automation and human behaviour at its core, and so including Silverfort’s next-gen authentication technology that monitors user activity and leverages an AI-driven risk engine to apply adaptive MFA policies made absolute sense and we are proud to include them and drive their solution across the market.”
Silverfort protects enterprises from data breaches, cyber-attacks and insider threats. Their technology enforces strong authentication and secures user access across the entire corporate network, by seamlessly adding MFA to any sensitive system or resource, across all on-premises and cloud environments. It does this without any agents or in-line proxies, allowing users to validate their identity with a user-friendly second factor of authentication and continue their work without disruptions. Threats that can’t authenticate with a second factor are blocked in real-time, preventing breach and unauthorised access.
“We are excited to work with Cloud on delivering the next generation of authentication to the UK Market. With the increase in cyber-attacks that leverage compromised credentials there is a growing need to protect more systems with MFA. Cloud’s Cyber Security division and its network of security specialist resellers have a vast understanding of the cyber-landscape and acknowledge the need to introduce a seamless solution that can easily extend adaptive authentication to any sensitive asset and strengthen security across all corporate systems.” said Matan Fattal, President and Co-Founder of Silverfort.
Cloud Distribution are taking this technology to the UK market and supporting reseller partners with marketing and sales initiatives through the Cloud Altitude Program. Through Cloud, partners have access to dedicated Silverfort sales specialists with a wealth of experience and utilise support with Professional Services from POC through to full installation.
