Relief for the Defender: Immediate Protection for Active Directory

Relief for the Defender: Immediate Protection for Active Directory

Written by: Juan Vazquez and Vikram Navali – Protecting Active Directory (AD) is more than just securing its infrastructure, users, and computer objects. AD security goes far beyond implementing best security practices, endpoint solutions installation, or updating Domain Controllers with the latest level of patches. According to an Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) research report, 50% of organizations experienced an attack on AD, with more than 40% indicating the attack was successful. It can be challenging for security teams to identify all AD objects that have provisioned user, computer accounts, or groups over time. At the same time, it can also be complex to protect from bad cyber hygiene habits.

Identity-Based Attack Innovation Drives the Demand for a New Security Approach

Identity-Based Attack Innovation Drives the Demand for a New Security Approach

Written by: Michelle Plato, Sr. Solution Marketing Manager – With the rise of ransomware 1.0 and 2.0 attacks – which doubled in occurrences from 2019 to 2021, comprising 10% of all breaches – it is obvious why identity security should sit at the top of the CISO’s priority list. The volume of innovative attack activity in 2021 supports evidence that attackers will continue to evolve their identity-focused exploit efforts moving forward. According to the 2021 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, the “human element” factors into 85% of breaches, with credential data theft and misuse now factoring into 61% of all such incidents. These figures prove attackers consistently attempt to access valid credentials and use them to move throughout networks undetected. These challenges drive the need to implement security solutions that effectively guard the new identity-based perimeter.
