Uniform risk analysis of authentication attempts

Access access authentication

Share post

Silverfort and Ping Identity jointly rely on a uniform risk analysis of authentication attempts. Product integration provides comprehensive visibility and assessment of access activities, enabling customers to identify and respond to threats.

Silverfort, a Unified Identity Protection company, recently started working with Ping Identity. Together they want to support customers with a standardized risk analysis of authentication and access attempts - both in local and in multi-cloud environments. This is to identify and prevent identity-based attacks.

61 percent of the attacks are based on stolen credentials

According to the Verizon 2021 Data Breach Investigations Report, 61 percent of security breaches are due to compromised credentials. This makes identity-based attacks the primary method that hackers use to access sensitive data.

The integration of the Silverfort platform with PingFederate enables companies to carry out universal, risk-based monitoring and evaluation of authentication attempts for on-premises and cloud environments. This enables them to proactively prevent threats. The combined solution also offers the extension of identity-based verification to previously unprotected local resources such as servers, workstations, legacy applications developed in-house, file shares and more. These controls can detect advanced attacks in hybrid environments with extreme accuracy, initiate security policy enforcement, and ensure a smooth user experience.

The integration of Silverfort and PingFederate offers the following advantages

  • Transparent redirection of authentication attempts from all applications federated by PingFederate for risk analysis to the Silverfort platform
  • Evaluation of each request based on the full context of the user account by Silverfort, including the most recent local authentication and access activities
  • Application of an access policy in the entire environment of the customer by Silverfort, including locally, in the cloud and in the multi-cloud, if a risky behavior is detected
  • Protection against lateral movements by attackers across hybrid infrastructures
  • Complete transparency and an audit trail for the authentication activities of each user

"The integration of Silverfort and Ping Identity enables customers to implement Zero Trust identity security while providing seamless authentication experiences for users," said Loren Russon, VP of Product Management at Ping Identity. "Regardless of whether applications are in the cloud, on-premises, connected or hybrid, Ping Identity and Silverfort make it possible to see the true context of authentication with AI-based risk analysis and apply adaptive access policies that protect against identity-related security threats."

Authentication in hybrid and cloud environments

"Detecting risky authentication and access requests in hybrid and cloud environments requires a unified approach that can span multiple identity providers and data silos," said Martin Kulendik, Silverfort's Regional Sales Director DACH. “The combination of Silverfort and Ping Identity provides the visibility, risk analysis, and policy enforcement needed to detect and respond to identity-based threats while remaining transparent to authorized users.”
