Active Directory Security Assessment

Mitigate the risk of Active Directory misconfigurations, process weaknesses and exploitation methods

The Active Directory Security Assessment (ADSA) is based on our extensive incident response experience, global containment and remediation services, and emerging threat intelligence. Mandiant uses this expertise to help your organization improve the key processes, configuration standards, security, and monitoring controls required to effectively secure an Active Directory environment and its supporting infrastructure.

Overview

Organizations often struggle to properly maintain configurations and keep current with the latest security enhancements of Active Directory.

The practical guidance and recommendations derived from this assessment reflect tested and vetted techniques that have successfully eradicated attackers from client environments and helped remediate threats.

By using this proactive methodology, organizations can enhance their Active Directory security posture and protect against incidents that exploit common weaknesses in an Active Directory environment.
