Securing Active Directory: How To Proactively Detect Attacks
Active Directory has been the main identity and access management solution for organizations over the past 21 years. That fact has not changed, and the technology from Microsoft hasn’t changed much either. This stale IAM solution is known not only to admins but attackers. Organizations need to take a different approach when it comes to protecting their AD infrastructure, as well as all the resources on the network where AD is controlling and protecting access. Attackers have taken a highly sophisticated approach to attacking AD, from external and internal positions alike. History has proven that traditional security tools and approaches have not been very effective due to the increased number of successful attacks and the continued attack paths into AD. A single solution is not available to solve the security issues of AD, but with the correct tools and approach, security can be strengthened and attacks can be reduced.
