Secure and Monitor Active Directory
Many large organizations use Active Directory as their primary Identity and Access Management (IAM) solution, synchronizing objects to Azure AD from there. Other organizations may keep Active Directory around to facilitate legacy systems that depend on legacy identity protocols such as LDAP and NTLM. But did you know that Active Directory turned 23 this year? And It seems like there are many admins out there who have forgotten about the true legacy protocols offered by their Domain Controllers.
Microsoft and vendors are moving away from NTLM and LDAP, but this does not address the common configurations performed by Active Directory admins over the years, some even as temporary patches. Now is the time to take a look at these older protocols and eradicate (near) clear text authentication packages traveling over the network for adversaries to potentially capture and replay.
In this on-demand webinar, Microsoft MVP Sander Berkouwer and ENow CEO Jay Gundotra clear up common misconceptions for Active Directory admins. Get ready to learn about the intricacies of monitoring all aspects of Active Directory and gain valuable insights around detailed reporting. But more importantly, learn how to do Active Directory right, so even if it is the oldest technology in the house - you don’t have to worry about the solution suddenly dying on you.
Sander Berkouwer is CTO at SCCT, a Dutch Microsoft Partner. He is the author of The Active Directory Administration Cookbook, and is a speaker and blogger at DirTeam.com and ServerCore.net. He is an awarded Microsoft MVP, Veeam Vanguard and VMware vExpert. Since 2009, Microsoft has awarded Sander with the Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award.
