Attivo Networks expands its Azure Active Directory

Attivo Networks announced today that it has expanded its identity infrastructure assessment technology for Azure Active Directory (AD). The new capabilities add hybrid environment support for continuous exposure visibility and provide remediation guidance for on-premises, cloud, and managed AD environments.

Nearly 80 percent of attacks are caused by threat actors leveraging identity security gaps to gain privileged access and move laterally throughout the network to execute their attack plans. This release adds to the company’s existing identity security portfolio, which provides over 200 checks for exposures that adversaries use to gain privileges, install backdoors, and proliferate malware. This new enhancement adds 15 additional automated Azure AD risk health checks and remediation guidance.

“The Attivo ADAssessor solution continues to provide essential identity exposure visibility across on-premises and cloud deployments, now including Azure AD,” said Srikant Vissamsetti, SVP of engineering at Attivo Networks. “Enterprises can now reduce risk by finding, fixing, and remediating exposures within AD. Our technology limits the attacker’s ability to identify sensitive targets, compromise misconfigurations, move laterally, and gain persistence across hybrid environments.”

With this enhanced offering, organizations can easily boost their protection of Active Directory in Azure and on-premises, gaining continuous visibility with actionable insight into exposures, and misconfiguration for domains, users, and devices. ADAssessor is the gold standard for easy, scalable use, deploying without elevated privileges to a single standard workstation within the AD forest. The solution includes a management console for analysis and management.
