Active Directory Protection

Active Directory (AD) is a top target for attackers seeking to obtain domain admin-level access. To guard against these attacks, organizations need visibility to AD exposures on-premises and in the cloud, insight into enumeration activities, and live attack detection. The Attivo Networks AD protection portfolio provides defense in depth for organizations seeking to protect AD from the endpoint, at the domain controller, and in the cloud.

Overview

Identity-based attacks are on the rise, and modern organizations must detect when attackers exploit, misuse, or steal enterprise identities. At these attacks is the primary attack target – Active Directory (AD).

Protecting Active Directory has become increasingly complex in recent years due to distributed organizations, pervasive access and a multitude of objects with varying levels of privilege and domain control. Monitoring and securing an environment is an ongoing challenge, and if that control is lost to an attacker can bring dire consequences.

The need to protect identities and detect identity-based attack activity are gaining in priority, especially since attackers steal credentials and leverage (AD) to progress their attacks.  Adopting solutions that protect identities is vital, given the damages occurring from identity misuse. 

Active Directory protection solutions help mitigate the challenges of protecting the critical data and credentials within Active Directory, whether in an on-premises or cloud environment.
