Active Directory Protection
Attacking Active Directory and obtaining domain admin-level access is one of the attackers’ primary objectives. Active Directory
and Domain controllers are prime reconnaissance targets to hunt for privileged credentials and privileged access. Attivo Networks provides innovative solutions for assessing Active Directory cyber hygiene, identifying specific domain, computer, and user-level risks, and detecting live attacks
Attacks on Active Directory (AD) used to be limited to well-financed and state-backed attackers. With automated attack tools, basic “script kiddies” can now quickly and successfully exploit Active Directory systems.
Attackers perform reconnaissance to identify regular IT activities and security measures once inside the target network and will scan the entire IT environment to gain an accurate picture of resources, privileged accounts, and services. Active Directory, and Domain controllers are prime reconnaissance targets to hunt for additional privileged credentials and privileged access.
Once attackers compromise Active Directory, they gain a digital map of the network and can reuse stolen credentials to move laterally inside. Losing domain administrator control over the Active Directory environment is essentially game over for the defender.
Traditional security tools such as SIEMs attempting to monitor logs have not been efficient in detecting AD attack activity. Maintaining Active Directory privileges and policies doesn’t stop someone from enumerating privileged accounts and critical assets. Overprovisioning can also leave AD data exposed to attack.
Attivo Networks provides several endpoint-based solutions that can work independently or as part of a combined solution to address these concerns.
The State Of Active Directory
Don’t leave the door open for attackers to secure the “keys to the kingdom”.
Active Directory Mismanagement Exposes 90% of Businesses to Breaches
95 million AD accounts are the target of cyberattacks every day
Penetration Testers Breach Active Directory Nearly 100% of the Time Indicating That Attackers Can Do the Same

PRIVILEGED CREDENTIAL AND ACCESS PROTECTION
Uncover credential and Active Directory access weaknesses before an attacker can leverage them to exploit AD or advance their attack. Detect & respond to attacks in real time.
Active Directory assessment for continuous visibility into AD hygiene related to identities and privileged account risk related
Real Time Detection
Detect privilege escalation and granularly restrict access to AD information without impacting business operations
High-fidelity alerts to key exposures at the Domain, computer, and -user level
Manage Identity entitlements and least privileges across on-premises and multi-cloud environments
Active Directory Protection Coverage
Keep businesses safe by preventing the misuse of privileged credentials and accounts with continuous Active Directory assessment and attack path visibility. Expose and remediate at risk credentials and paths that provide access to an organization’s most valuable assets.

ATTIVO NETWORKS ACTIVE DIRECTORY SOLUTION CAPABILITIES
Attivo provides prevention, detection, and visibility solutions for protecting an organization’s Active Directory environment on-premises and in the cloud.
The ADAssessor solution identifies AD weaknesses and exposures to detect advanced attacks in real-time. The ADSecure solution prevents exploitation of Active Directory by efficiently concealing real Active Directory objects, raising alerts on unauthorized activities, and returning misinformation for derailing the attack. These protections are all achieved without altering the production Active Directory environment.
Additionally, for organizations looking to add visibility to exposed local administrator credentials on the endpoint, misconfigured ACLs, or attack paths by application and severity they can purchase the EDN Suite, which provides ADSecure and ThreatPath functionality.
- Identify exposures and misconfigurations
- See bulk changes and dangerous delegations
- Reduce AD attack surface
- Detect advanced attacks in real-time
- Attack information correlation
- Threat intelligence enrichment
- Identify polymorphic or time-triggered activity
- Exposed local administrator credentials
- Identify Shadow Admins
- Find misconfigured ACLs
- Attack paths by application and severity
“The ADSecure solution is critical for any company that wants to defend and monitor Active Directory solutions. Don’t hesitate to include it as part of your implementation.”
