Identify and Respond to Threats with Active Directory Threat Detection

The Challenges of Active Directory Threat Detection Across Multiple Microsoft Platforms

In today’s evolving cybersecurity landscape, safeguarding Active Directory (AD) is critical to maintaining the security posture of any organization. Active Directory serves as the cornerstone for authentication and authorization for over 90% of organizations worldwide, making it a prime target for malicious actors seeking unauthorized access or privilege escalation. 

Detecting threats in Active Directory requires more than just monitoring changes; it demands proactive identification of suspicious activities and potential security breaches. To combat these threats effectively, organizations must employ robust Active Directory threat detection solutions.
