Active Directory Security | Privileged Access Audit | Attack Surface Reduction | Insider Threat Protection | Audit and Compliance

Attack Surface Reduction is the #1 cyber security measure organizations can enact to reduce the likelihood of a privileged user compromise related breach.

Here's Why

  1. The compromise and misuse of a single Active Directory privileged access user account can result in a colossal, systemic breach, and possibly shut down the entire organization.
  2. 100% of all major recent cyber security breaches (E.g. Snowden, Target, JP Morgan, Sony, OPM) involved the compromise and misuse of a single Active Directory privileged user account.
  3. The attack surface is as vast as the number of privileged user accounts there exist in Active Directory. The lesser the number, the smaller and more defensible is the attack surface.
    • Note: The impact of compromise of a single Active Directory privileged user account is substantially greater than that of local privileged user accounts on Windows computers.

  4. The ability to precisely identify privileged user accounts in Active Directory can help organizations vastly reduce and formidably defend a smaller, known and more defensible attack surface.




The Challenge in Attack Surface Reduction

Today organizations worldwide face a substantial challenge in their attempts to reduce the privileged user account attack surface in their foundational Microsoft Active Directory deployments.

Active Directory Privileged Access Audit

In an Active Directory deployment, the primary privileged user attack surface is comprised of Domain Unrestricted Admin Accounts (~ 10%) and Domain Delegated Admin accounts (~ 90%).

It is easy to precisely identify Domain Unrestricted Admin Accounts that constitute about 10% of the attack surface, but it is very difficult to precisely identify Domain Delegated Admin accounts that constitute the remaining 90% of the attack surface, primarily because doing so involves the precise determination of effective permissions/access on thousands of objects stored in Active Directory.

Organizations that are unable to precisely identify the Domain Delegated Accounts that constitute a majority of the attack surface in Active Directory, are unable to reduce their attack surface.

(Precision is paramount because a perpetrator need only identify and compromise one inadequately protection privileged user account to breach security and possibly inflict colossal damage.)

Our solutions uniquely empower organizations to precisely, instantly and effortlessly identify not only all Domain Unrestricted Admin accounts but more importantly also identify all Domain Delegated Admin accounts in their Active Directory, thus helping them precisely assess, vastly reduce and better defend a much smaller, known Active Directory privileged user attack surface –
