Why Customers Choose ADSecure for Active Directory Protection

Protecting Active Directory has become increasingly complex with pervasive access and a multitude of objects with varying levels of privilege and domain control. Monitoring and keeping this environment secure has become a significant challenge and comes with dire consequences when that control is lost to an attacker.

ADSecure takes a different approach to other security solutions by providing early alerting when an attacker makes a query and then prevents their ability to enumerate the network accurately by providing them false information.

“ADSecure finally gives me an advantage over the attacker.”

How ADSecure for Active Directory Protection Works

With the ADSecure solution, organizations gain visibility to Active Directory attacks, privilege escalation attempts, and attacker lateral movement. This is all done without altering or interfering with production Domain Controllers.

Attackers use various sophisticated tools to query AD. When an attacker queries AD, the solution hides real results and returns misinformation that steers the attacker’s path away from the production environment while raising an alert on the attempted exploitation. Organizations now gain the power to conceal valuable enterprise resource information, the insight to reduce the attack surface, and the control to alter what the attacker sees as a means to slow and deter attacks. By controlling the path of an attacker, security teams can now also gather Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures (TTPs) and company-specific threat intelligence for remediating exploited systems and fortifying defenses.

How ADSecure for Active Directory Security Works

Active Directory protection without affecting production.



01   The attacker compromises a production PC

02   The attacker uses an application to query AD for Domain admin accounts

03   ADSecure detects and alerts on the unauthorized queries

04   The AD server responds with production results

05   ADSecure hides the production results to reduce the attack surface

06   ADSecure provides fake AD objects, misdirecting attackers away from production systems
