Over the years, Microsoft Active Directory has become the cornerstone of corporate security. However, the importance of keeping it secure is usually underestimated. Regardless of how well AD services are initially configured, they are constantly evolving systems and their security needs to be constantly updated for maximum protection.
Cyber-attacks always follow a similar pattern. After bypassing the perimeter protection, they target the same infrastructure: Active Directory that holds all access control rights. Apart from Cyber Vandalism, over 95% of cyber-attacks would NOT have be successful without a breach of Active Directory.
There are many solutions designed to prevent or detect perimeter breaches, but if these solutions are defeated, a vulnerable AD is an open highway for hackers to access confidential data, gain control of systems and disrupt operations.
Maintaining a state-of-the-art security for Active Directory is challenging – both technical and process-wise. However, we’ve designed a proactive, proven, practical, comprehensive, continuous and cost-effective platform– Active Directory Security Platform (ADSP) to help organizations build a water-tight and military grade cyber defense around their AD Infrastructures. The ADSP offering comprises of FIVE (5) components as briefly highlighted below.
5. AD Resilience Service.Protect your hybrid identity environment from cyberattacks and catastrophes, detect identity breaches and recover from any Active Directory disaster. When a hacker, rogue administrator, or operational error take down Active Directory, a full forest recovery can take days or even weeks. And in the case of ransomware or a wiper attack, the malware can be reintroduced in the process.
