We Impact Global Security

Do you know what lies at the very foundation of cyber security of virtually every organization that impacts your life today?


From your employer to your financial institution, and from the companies you invest in to the world's governments, from the companies that manufacture all that the world needs to the companies that provide the world's utilities (security, energy, transportation, health, defense, technology etc.) at the foundation of them all lies Microsoft Active Directory.

Active Directory is also at the very foundation of cyber security of virtually all of the world's cyber security, Internet, social media and cloud computing companies.


We possess the ability to be able to uniquely empower them all to be able to find out exactly who has what privileged access i.e. the "Keys to the Kingdom" in their foundational Active Directory.

Who We Are

Who We Are

From the U.S. Government to the global Fortune 1000, at the very foundation of cyber security of 85% of organizations worldwide lies Microsoft Active Directory.

Paramount Defenses was founded by former Microsoft Program Manager for Active Directory Security, widely regarded as the world's leading cyber security expert on Active Directory.


We possess authoritative expertise and unrivaled capability in Active Directory Security and Privileged Access Audit, two vital areas of that today play a paramount role in cyber security.

We also possess innovative, patented intellectual property that governs the accurate determination of Who has what access, including privileged access, in IT infrastructures worldwide.


Over the years, we have helped secure some of the world's most important business and government organizations.

As a cyber security company that can uniquely help secure and defend foundational security at 85% of the world's organizations, including at all Cloud computing and cyber security companies, our work impacts cyber security globally.

What We Do

What We Do

Cyber Security is cardinally about precise access control, whether it be controlling access to networks, systems or data.

It is logical then that organizations cannot precisely control access without having the ability to precisely assess access.

Our technology uniquely helps organizations worldwide assess precisely who has what access in their IT infrastructures.


We apply our patented technology to develop and deliver cyber security solutions that empower organizations worldwide to precisely assess access in and across their IT infrastructures.

Our flagship cyber security solution, the Microsoft-endorsed Gold Finger uniquely empowers 85% of organizations worldwide to find out precisely who has what access in their Active Directory.

Deployed in six continents worldwide, Gold Finger is the gold standard for privileged access audit in Active Directory.

How We Protect You

How We Protect You

We help protect you by empowering the organizations that impact your life, secure and defend the foundation of their cyber security.

Specifically, our patented technology uniquely empowers these organizations to precisely assess and lock-down privileged access in their foundational Active Directory deployments.

Precise privileged access insight is paramount to organizational cyber security, for without it, nothing can be secured.

It's a less-known fact that from Snowden to the Sony Hack, and from the Anthem breach to the OPM Breach, most major recent cyber security breaches involved the compromise and misuse of a single Active Directory privileged user.

Given the colossal amount of damage that such a breach could inflict, when identifying privileged users in Active Directory, accuracy is paramount, and our solutions uniquely deliver accurate privileged access insight, thus protecting them.

When organizations you rely on are protected, you are protected.
