Active Directory Monitoring

Cut Through the Noise in Your Active Directory

Can You Stop the Intruders in Your AD Forest?

Once an attacker breaches your perimeter defenses, the race begins. Will they find your crown jewels? Or will you detect and block them first? Your Microsoft Active Directory (AD) is a popular first stop for intruder reconnaissance, but it's also one of the busiest—and noisiest—systems in your enterprise. How can you possibly identify tell-tale threat signals in all that noise?

If you understand everything happening across your whole AD environment, you'll spot suspicious or unusual behavior as soon as it occurs. Network traffic analysis (NTA) keeps you ahead of attackers with a comprehensive view of your AD forest, while advanced machine learning strips away the noise and automatically surfaces anomalies in real time so you can identify and block intruders early in the kill chain.

What I like about this is that our security guys have, at most, two windows they need to look at. One tells them what's going on, the other tells them what has gone down and how to fix it.
