Active Directory Protection Solutions

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. 


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. 

Identity Detection and Response solutions help mitigate the challenges of protecting the critical data and credentials within Active Directory.

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.
