Active Directory
Privileged User Audit

An organization’s foundational Active Directory is the bedrock of IT and cyber security, and the heart of privileged access (the “Keys to the Kingdom’), and thus its security is paramount.

Active Directory is thus the most high-value target in organizational cyber security today, and historically almost all major recent cyber security breaches, including JP Morgan, Target, Sony, Anthem, OPM Breach, Snowden, Avast, U.N. and others, targeted Active Directory and involved the compromise and misuse of an Active Directory privileged user account.

Consequently, the need to know exactly who has what privileged access in an organization’s Active Directory, especially Domain-admin equivalent privileged access, is paramount.

However, no organization can accurately audit privileged access in its Active Directory without possessing the capability to accurately determine Active Directory Effective Permissions.


Our Active Directory Privileged User Audit service uniquely empowers organizations to instantly and accurately identify all users that currently possess privileged access in their Active Directory, based on the accurate determination of Active Directory Effective Permissions.

Overview

An Active Directory Privileged User Audit is a risk management process that lets organizations accurately identify who has what privileged access in Active Directory. Our unique Active Directory Privileged User Audit service was developed by former Microsoft Program Manager for Active Directory Security.

It can be performed onsite or remotely, and usually requires no more than one day to perform.


It uniquely delivers the following benefits to an organization -

  • Accurately audit exactly who has what privileged access domain-wide in the organization's Active Directory.
  • Instantly identify all users who have unrestricted (Domain-Admin equivalent) and delegated privileged access in Active Directory.
  • Immediately uncover who can carry out prominent Active Directory attacks (e.g. Mimikatz DCSync) against their Active Directory.
