Privileged Access Audit

We Accurately Audit Privileged Access

Privileged Access is the new holy grail for perpetrators and the #1 target at organizations worldwide, because in it lie the proverbial "Keys to the Kingdom"

At 85% of organizations worldwide, the most powerful privileged access and the vast majority of all privileged access reside inside organizational Active Directory deployments.

From Snowden to the OPM Breach and from the Target breach to the Sony Hack, 100% of all major recent breaches involved the compromise of an Active Directory privileged user account.

Given the massive potential for damage, the need to be able to accurately identify all privileged users in foundational Active Directory deployments is paramount to cyber security.

Our patented privileged access audit solutions for Microsoft Active Directory are unique in their ability to accurately audit privileged access in Active Directory deployments.
