At the very foundation of cyber security of over 85% of all organizations worldwide, lies Active Directory.

Active Directory Security is Paramount to Global Security

Active Directory Security

At the very foundation of cyber security of over 90% of all business and government organizations worldwide, lies Microsoft Active Directory.

It does so because it provides, stores and protects the very foundational building blocks of cyber security, such as all organizational user accounts and their passwords, all organizational computer accounts and their security policies, all organizational security groups and their memberships, as well as the proverbial Keys to the Kingdom, i.e. all administrative accounts (privileged users) and their credentials.

Should an organization's Active Directory be compromised, its entire IT infrastructure could be at risk. Consequently the entirety of it's IT assets could be vulnerable to compromise.

Active Directory security is thus paramount to security and it must be cyber security priority #1. After all, what else could be more important than protecting the very foundation of security?
