Learn how Ciena used Silverfort to extend its cloud MFA solution to its on-prem workstations, legacy systems and privileged access. Ciena had already used Okta Verify MFA to secure the authentication to its SaaS apps. However, like many other organizations, Ciena also had many critical resources on-prem, where Windows and Linux machines authenticate to Active Directory (AD). Silverfort’s technology integrates with AD and ‘translates’ the legacy AD protocols for cloud identity providers (such as Azure AD, Okta etc.), therefore enabling Ciena and others to enforce a unified MFA protection and user experience on resources that couldn’t support MFA before.
