A Their Story interview with John Dasher

ITSPmagazine’s John Dasher chats with Dana Tamir, VP Market Strategy, Silverfort, at Black Hat 2018 about multi-factor authentication, how it’s changed with the shift to the cloud, hybrid environments, and disappearing perimeters, plus how Silverfort enables strong MFA across the entire network without modifications to endpoints and servers.

The problem with authentication – which is not new; it’s been available for a long time – is that stolen credentials are used for 81% of the breaches we see today.
— Dana Tamir

MFA solutions strengthen authentication, but it’s not available for every system. It’s a very effective way to validate that you are who you say you are, but if you can’t apply it to all systems in an organization, you’re still left with many exposed systems.

The way that networks have changed in recent years – moving to the cloud, the hybrid environments that we have, disappearing perimeters – this requires us to shift the way we treat identify and trust within the organization.

Silverfort is an authentication company that comes up with next-generation solutions; they enable strong authentication for any sensitive asset across entire networks and cloud environments without any modifications to endpoints and servers.

And they can apply this to systems that until today were thought to be unprotectable, like SCADA systems, commonly found in industrial applications, power plants, and critical infrastructure.
