Privileged accessis often inadequately managed, and the attack surface is widening particularly with the proliferation of Active Directory and Azure AD in companies in 95 percent of Fortune 1000 companies worldwide. Bad actors know this and that’s why AD/AAD is the target of nearly every cybersecurity attack. The result? Exploited accounts, exposed assets, costly damage, long-term effects, and difficult remediation and recovery.
It is critical to protect against AD/AAD-targeted security threats and to provide visibility and control over privileged access. You must also reduce errors and be sure your hybrid Active Directory environment is optimized. The ideal solution will tell you what happened, help remediate the effects and help prevent it from happening again.
Establishing zero trust and least privileged access is key to secure privileged accounts. View this on-demand webcast, in which you will learn the right way to implement Privilege Security, as well as how you can secure every user, session, and objects across your environment.
