Active Directory Solutions for Cyber Resiliency

How do you protect your Active Directory from ransomware attacks?

With ransomware attacks becoming more sophisticated and frequent, no organisation is safe. By finding the potential areas of risk and assessing who is doing what in the environment, a picture can be built on who or what can pose a threat.

When an Active Directory (AD) fails, the IT environment comes to a grinding halt. Reduce the impact of an attack with the ability to recover your Active Directory (AD), and fast. 

A cyber attack can be catastrophic to any unprepared or unsuspecting organisation.

Are you ready to recover your customers Active Directory?

In today’s world, a ransomware attack is inevitable. Recovering an AD can be difficult without a comprehensive recovery solution. Make sure you’re prepared before it’s too late.

The most common AD security risks

Too many administrators

Leads to privilege abuse and data leakage. Only give admin access to users that really need it.

Competency gap

There’s a shortage in talent within the cybersecurity industry.  Investing in comprehensive solutions can help bridge the gap.

Leaving inactive accounts

Inactive accounts should be disabled and then deleted. If not, they are an open door for an attacker to gain entry to AD.

Compromised AD backups

Simply having a backup isn’t enough. When the hacker is in, they can tamper with (or worse, delete) them if not stored in a highly secure location, and outside of your current environment.

Easy to guess passwords

If it’s easy to remember, it’s usually not secure! One weak password can lead to your entire AD being compromised. Put a password policy in place to keep your AD safe.

Don’t know who’s logged in

Not knowing who is in your environment makes it difficult to protect vital identities and data. Implement a proactive method to keep track of logins to easily spot anomalies so you can act fast.
