Active Directory
Privileged User Lockdown

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 reliably lockdown all privileged access in an organization’s Active Directory, especially Domain-admin equivalent privileged access, is paramount to security.

However, the technical complexity of Active Direcory's complex security model can make it difficult for organizations to reliably lockdown privileged access in their Active Directory.


Our Active Directory Privileged User Lockdown service uniquely empowers organizations to quickly and trustworthily lockdown privileged access in their foundational Active Directory by leveraging our authoritative subject matter expertise in Active Directory Security.

Overview

An Active Directory Privileged User Lockdown is a risk management process that lets organizations lockdown who has what privileged access in Active Directory.

Our unique Active Directory Privileged User Lockdown 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 week to perform.


It is designed to uniquely deliver the following benefits to an organization -

  • Reliably, quickly and efficiently lockdown privileged access domain-wide in the organization's Active Directory.
  • Minimize the number of users who possess unrestricted (Domain-Admin equivalent) and delegated privileged access in Active Directory.
  • Deny perpetrators the opportunity to enact prominent Active Directory attacks (e.g. Mimikatz DCSync) against their Active Directory.
