Strategic partnership extends identity security controls to include multi-factor authentication for resources that couldn’t be protected before.
London, UK – 26 October 2023 – ITC Secure (ITC), a leading advisory-led cyber security services provider, announced today that it has formed a strategic partnership with Silverfort, the first platform to deliver modern identity protection for all corporate users, service accounts, and resources across the hybrid environment. Both partners are aligned with the Microsoft security suite and this partnership will amplify the value that can be delivered to organisations on a Microsoft journey.
Identity is now the number one attack surface with 82% of data breaches and ransomware attacks involving compromised credentials. Despite this, 97% of enterprises still rely on legacy or hybrid identity and access management (IAM) infrastructure.
A combining force
This announcement formalises ITC’s partnership with Silverfort and enables ITC to combine its 25 years of expertise in the cyber security market, including deep experience in identity, with a pioneer in extended multifactor authentication (MFA).
Mark Weait, Chief Revenue Officer, ITC Secure said “The identity perimeter remains a priority for business leaders and an ongoing challenge to solve. We are excited to extend our existing capabilities in identity security to include extended MFA, Identity Threat Detection and Response (ITDR) and additional Zero Trust policies to enable organisations to address these challenges and stop identity-based attacks in real time.”
End-to-end Zero Trust identity
MFA is a critical component in preventative cyber security that enables organisations to protect on-premise resources, cloud resources, custom apps, and service accounts while ensuring compliance and cyber insurance requirements are met.
Drew Schuil, Chief Revenue Officer, Silverfort added “MFA is important, but it is only one piece of the identity puzzle. This partnership will enable customers to lean into ITC’s existing capabilities to address challenges across the identity perimeter landscape. They will be able to benefit from solutions regardless of where they are on their identity journey but confident that they are delivered by experts and underpinned by a Zero Trust architecture.”
Underpinned by Microsoft
ITC is a Microsoft Solutions Partner with designations in Security, Modern Work, and Infrastructure, and Silverfort is a Microsoft Co-Sell Ready Partner and Preferred Solution accredited.
This combination enables seamless integration with the Microsoft ecosystem and will empower customers with a unified product and service delivery across environments to achieve consolidated and simplified protection.
Furthermore, incorporation into ITC’s wider set of managed security services will be available, underpinned by ITC’s Microsoft-verified Managed Extended Detection and Response (MXDR) solution, enabling organisations to achieve integrated cyber security with identity at the core.
