ADAssessor to Strengthen Active Directory Protections
ADAssessor provides continuous visibility to on-premises and cloud Active Directory (Azure AD) exposures that are vulnerable to attack and detects AD attack indicators.
ADAssessor for Active Directory and Azure AD Security
Active Directory is one of the main targets of attack because it contains the required information that attackers need to expand their access, establish persistence, elevate privileges, move laterally, and identify targets. By identifying critical on-premises and cloud AD exposures and alerting on attacks that target them, organizations improve their security before attackers can compromise their AD databases.
In addition to attack indicator detection, the solution also provides visibility into critical domain, computer, and user-level exposures. These insights easily show identities and service account risk related to credentials, privileged accounts, stale accounts, shared credentials, and AD attack paths. The solution gathers this information efficiently from the domain, so it does not impact day to day Active Directory operations or employee access to resources.

How ADAssessor for Active Directory Protection Works
Organizations can quickly set up the ADAssessor solution through a single domain-joined system or natively within the cloud. There are no extra privileges required. The Attivo CloudLink service then feeds the data to a cloud-based management console.
Once deployed, the solution:
- Immediately detects vulnerabilities in the AD environment, including misconfigurations, excessive privileges, or data exposures.
- Discovers weaknesses before attackers can exploit them and to reduce the attack surface for on-premises and cloud AD.
- Automatically monitors AD, analyzing changes and new exposures that indicate possible malicious activity.
- Runs continuously or on-demand to protect Active Directory.
