Addressing IAM Pain Points and Security Gaps

Hed Kovetz of Silverfort Reviews Holistic Agentless Approach to Secure Authentication
Hed Kovetz, CEO and co-founder, Silverfort

Corporate networks have been 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, says Hed Kovetz of Silverfort.

In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA 2020, Kovetz also discusses:

  • The impact of trends such as cloud, BYOD and IIOT and the growing need for secure authentication;
  • The need to secure any-to-any communication and enforce true "zero trust" security policies;
  • How Silverfort's unified agentless approach for IAM is helping clients to address these challenges.

Kovetz is the CEO and co-founder of Silverfort, a provider of agentless authentication and zero trust security solutions. Prior to founding Silverfort, he served in product leadership positions at Verint.
