BOSTON and TEL AVIV, Israel, Oct. 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Silverfort today announced the availability of the Silverfort Next Generation Authentication App for the Palo Alto Networks® Application Framework. The Application Framework is a cloud-based framework that extends the capabilities of the Palo Alto Networks Security Operating Platform, allowing organizations to rapidly consume and implement a variety of innovative security apps from any provider, large or small.

Silverfort enables organizations to add risk-based adaptive authentication to any system or resource, across entire networks and cloud environments, without deploying any software agents, costly integrations or reducing productivity. Silverfort’s non-intrusive solution can protect systems that don’t support multi-factor authentication today, such as proprietary systems, IoT devices, shared files and folders, industrial control systems (ICS) and more. This allows organizations to secure corporate identities and critical assets, prevent data breaches and achieve compliance with regulations like GDPR, PCI and HIPAA.

By combining the powerful threat detection and prevention capabilities of Palo Alto Networks with Silverfort’s agentless authentication technology, this new app automatically enforces step-up authentication for suspicious users, based on real-time alerts from the Application Framework. When alerts are received, Silverfort provides suspected users a chance to prove their identity and continue to work, while effectively blocking malicious entities. The authentication results are provided as feedback to the Application Framework, allowing security teams to focus on actual threats and reduce false positives.
