Attacks on Active Directory (AD) used to be limited to well-financed and state-backed attackers. With automated attack tools, basic “script kiddies” can now quickly and successfully exploit Active Directory systems. Once compromised, attacks gain a digital map of your network and can reuse stolen credentials to move laterally within it. It is said that once an attacker gains Domain administrator control over Active Directory that it is essentially game over for the defender.
Traditional security tools such as SIEMs attempting to monitor logs have not been efficient in detecting AD attack activity; and maintaining AD privileges and policies doesn’t stop someone from enumerating privileged accounts and critical assets. A new approach is critically needed.
The Attivo ADSecure solution does what no other security control can do and efficiently conceals real Active Directory objects, raises alerts on unauthorized activities, and returns misinformation for derailing the attack. It also does this all without needing to alter anything with the production Active Directory environment.
