Ping Identity has partnered with Silverfort in an effort to provide customers with risk and identity-based access control capabilities. The joint solution will provide coverage for those on-site in addition to those gaining access through the cloud, and can be used to secure infrastructure that may fall outside an organization’s existing access control setup.
The goal is to deliver a consistent access control experience across the entire organization, so that the process is roughly the same whether people are accessing a physical server or a remote file sharing service. To that end, Ping Identity will specifically integrate Silverfort into its own PingFederate platform to help organizations detect identity-based cyberattacks.
With the joint solution, all PingFederate authentication requests will automatically be redirected to the Silverfort platform. Silverfort will then analyze those requests to evaluate the level of risk, taking factors like the user’s access history into account. The platform will flag any anomalous behavior and take an appropriate response based on the organization’s security policy.
In doing so, PingFederate will allow organizations to respond to threats in a proactive manner. The joint solution will be available from Ping Identity, Silverfort, and their respective partners.
“The integration enables customers to implement zero trust identity security while providing seamless authentication experiences for users,” said Ping Identity Product Management VP Loren Russon.
“Detecting risky authentication and access requests across hybrid and cloud environments requires a unified approach that can span multiple identity providers and data silos,” added Silverfort CTO Yaron Kassner. “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.”
Ping Identity recently installed PingFederate (amongst other solutions) for the logistics specialist DB Schenker. The company also released a new biometric onboarding solution and a COVID-19 immunity passport back in February. Silverfort, meanwhile, has previously provided similar risk analysis services for RSA.
