Active Directory Security

Remove Microsoft Active Directory exposures that allow attackers to compromise critical assets

Active Directory is a top target for attackers seeking to obtain domain admin-level access. An attacker that has compromised an Active Directory use could use this to elevate privileges, conceal malicious activity in the network, execute malicious code and even make their way into the cloud environment to compromise assets.

XM Cyber is the first in the industry to show how Active Directory abuse comes into play in the entire attack path, bringing multiple attack techniques together to pinpoint highest risks and offer step-by-step remediation guidance.

Key Product Features

Prevent Active Directory related attacks across on-prem and cloud environments
