BOSTON & TEL AVIV, Israel — Silverfort, the provider of Next-Generation Authentication solutions, today announced it has been named to CNBC’s Upstart 100, a list that showcases a diverse group of up-and-coming companies that are breaking barriers on the path to becoming tomorrow’s household names.

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.

“Being named to CNBC’s Upstart 100 list is a tremendous honor and a validation of our mission and vision,” said Hed Kovetz, co-founder and CEO of Silverfort. “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.”

Silverfort’s inclusion in the Upstart 100 comes on the heels of significant company momentum. Earlier this year, Silverfort has been named a Gartner Cool Vendor, a 451 FireStarter, and recognized on CRN’s 2019 Emerging Vendors List. To learn more visit
