Attivo Networks, the industry experts in lateral movement attack detection and privilege escalation prevention, has announced the expansion of its Active Directory protection suite of products with a new and innovative way to discover and remediate exposures in Active Directory (AD) that could lead to breaches.
Active Directory is a directory service used by over 90% of all enterprises for employee authentication, identity management and access control.
“Protecting Active Directory should be on the radar of every executive team. The consequences can be dire when an attacker uses Active Directory to compromise all critical resources and identities gaining access to key applications, data and tampers with security policies,” said Srikant Vissamsetti, Senior Vice President, Engineering, Attivo Networks. “We see Active Directory exploitation used in the majority of ransomware, insider and advanced attacks. We are pleased to now offer our customers early and efficient solutions for preventing the misuse of Active Directory.” Steve Hunt, Senior Analyst, Aite Group, said: “Since Active Directory is the jumping off point for so many attacks, security executives must prioritise the protection of Active Directory and Kerberos authentication vulnerabilities. These systems need to be continuously monitored and protected more diligently, validating the integrity of each part, including critical control infrastructure and entitlement access.”Click below to share this article
