Eliminating Attack Paths in Active Directory: A closer look at preventing privilege escalations
Knowing that you have been attacked is essential, but anticipating and preventing attacks is crucial to staying resilient and thwarting attacks.
Active Directory is a 22-year-old technology that is subject to frequent changes and has now saddled CIOs with decades of technical debt. It has many moving parts that attackers can exploit and sophisticated AD attacks rely on multiple attack paths. In many cases, attackers look to take advantage of unpatched vulnerabilities and misconfigurations in AD to elevate their privileges and gain wide-reaching access to critical enterprise assets.
Detecting and eliminating attack pathways gives enterprises the ability to block new threats before the pathways are exploited by attackers.
