On-Demand Webinar Library

On-Demand video resources to help IT professionals understand and overcome the challenges of Microsoft 365, Active Directory, and Exchange monitoring and reporting.

Join Alistair Pugin and Nicolas Blank as they walk you through identifying risky apps in your Entra ID tenant and, more importantly – the steps you need to take next to fix and securely configure applications. They’ll focus on things like:

  • How applications are deployed 
  • What security really means in Entra ID 
  • How to make sure that your applications are secured 
  • How to continuously evaluate your Application Security Posture

Just because a vendor automates the deployment of applications in Entra ID, doesn’t mean that these applications are locked down and hardened correctly in your tenant, as witnessed in the Midnight Blizzard attack on Microsoft. Don’t be a sitting duck - watch the recording and discover precisely what you need to look for and act on to ensure that your app stack is protected and governed.  

In this exclusive session, Garth and co-host Robert Hinger, ENow’s Enterprise Technical CSM, will guide you through real-world scenarios and showcase how ENow’s GALsync tool simplifies syncing woes into a streamlined and successful endeavor. You'll gain invaluable knowledge, including: 

  • Tales of GAL syncing gone awry – straight from the field. 
  • The critical importance of nailing GAL syncing right from the start. 
  • Important considerations for a hybrid environment. 
  • The transformative power of automation in scenarios like Mergers, Acquisitions, Divestitures, migrations, and across various communication protocols. 
  • How the ENow GALsync solution makes sense for your organization

Microsoft MVPs Alistair Pugin and Nicolas Blank explore the top 5 risks associated with application security and more, including:

  • A break down of the recent "Midnight Blizzard" attack on Microsoft
  • Injection attacks
  • Broken authentication and session management
  • Sensitive data exposure
  • Security misconfiguration
  • Insufficient logging and monitoring

Learn what to look for in your Entra ID environment, how to find it, and what to communicate to your dev team to ensure maximum efficacy and security around application governance for your organization.
