Microsoft’s Active Directory (AD) is a popular choice for companies and organisations to use as their operational backbone.

However, it is important to be aware of the security challenges it poses and the potential for ransomware and other types of attacks due to common configuration errors. A functional AD does not necessarily mean it is secure.

Over 80% of ransomware attacks are traced to common configuration errors in software and devices. Therefore, evaluating the security of your AD is one of the best decisions for your infrastructure’s interest.

Active Directory (AD) is a popular Microsoft technology many companies and organisations use to manage and organize their network resources, such as user accounts, computers, and other devices. A variation of Active Directory for cloud setups is Azure Active Directory (AAD), which serves the same purpose. The chances are your organisation has one of these or both.

Due to common configuration errors, Active Directory can be a prime target for cyber attacks, such as ransomware. Even if your AD appears to function properly, it may not be secure. Evaluating the security of your AD is important to protect your infrastructure from potential attacks that could cause severe business disruptions.

ProtectIT is our unique advanced service that provides a thorough Infrastructure Security Assessment of your setup, whether on-premises, hybrid, or cloud-based. Our approach uses the MITRE ATT&CK and MITRE D3FEND Cyber Security frameworks to detect and uncover potential Indications of Exposure (IoE) and Indications of Compromise (IoC) in your infrastructure.

Our ProtectIT approach starts with thoroughly analysing your infrastructure's security and pinpointing gaps, flaws and misconfigurations. We then provide an actionable plan to address potential security weaknesses or issues uncovered during the assessment.

ProtectIT can help you to identify and address potential security risks in your infrastructure, reducing the likelihood of successful cyber attacks such as ransomware. By improving the security of your AD, you can protect your valuable data and prevent costly downtime due to security breaches.

To be able to assess all aspects of your infrastructure, we will work in conjunction with you to survey your backend systems.
