Free Active Directory Security Assessment for Unprecedented Visibility to AD Vulnerabilities

Why Organizations Need ADAssessor for Active Directory Security

Active Directory is one of the main targets of attack because it contains the required information that attackers need to expand their access, establish persistence, elevate privileges, move laterally, and identify targets to attack. By identifying critical AD exposures and alerting on attacks that target them, organizations improve their security before attackers can compromise their AD data.

In addition to real-time attack detection, the solution also provides visibility into critical domain, computer, and user-level exposures. These insights easily show identities and service account risk related to credentials, privileged accounts, stale accounts, shared credentials, and AD attack paths. The solution gathers this information efficiently from the domain, so it does not impact day to day Active Directory operations or employee access to resources.

How ADAssessor for Active Directory Protection Works

Organizations can quickly set up the ADAssessor solution through a single domain-joined system. There are no extra privileges required. The management console provides analysis and data for remediation assistance.


Once deployed, the solution:

  • Immediately detects vulnerabilities in the AD environment, including misconfigurations, excessive privileges, or data exposures.
  • Discovers weaknesses before attackers can exploit them and to reduce the attack surface.
  • Automatically monitors AD, analyzing changes and new exposures that indicate possible malicious activity.
  • Runs continuously or on-demand to protect Active Directory.
