Active Directory
Security Assessment

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 have comprehensive, trustworthy insight into the security state of an organization’s foundational Active Directory is paramount to organizational cyber security.

Organizations need to be able to reliably assess, identify, and quantify risks to all aspects of Active Directory, including an accurate assessment of privileged access in Active Directory.

Our Active Directory Security Assessment service uniquely enables an organization to reliably assess, identify, and quantify cyber security risks to its foundational Active Directory deployment, including an accurate assessment of privileged access in Active Directory.


An Active Directory Security Assessment is a risk management process that lets organizations systematically assess risks to their Active Directory deployment. Our unique Active Directory Security Assessment service was developed by former Microsoft Program Manager for Active Directory Security.

It can be performed onsite or remotely, and usually requires one to two weeks to perform.

It uniquely delivers the following benefits to an organization -

  • Comprehensively assess the current security state of all aspects of an organization's Active Directory.
  • Accurately audit and identify exactly who has what privileged access domain-wide in the organization's Active Directory.
  • Reliably identify existing risks to and gaps in Active Directory security and objectively identify required risk mitigation measures.
