Proper AD Management and Privileged Access Management Eliminate Risk

Events and breaches over the last few years have exposed, in a high-profile way, particular vulnerabilities of our modern IT environments. It’s obvious now that perimeter security alone is no longer sufficient to protect our highly dynamic, connected and mobile enterprises. Additional drivers, such as insider threats, emphasize the need to protect identities. And a key component of identity management for most organizations is Active Directory (AD). As 95 percent of enterprises rely on AD as their primary authentication mechanism, AD is a popular target for the bad guys

Hybrid IAM Offers Flexibility and Enhanced Security

One of the fastest growing segments of the Identity and Access Management (IAM) market is the cloud segment. Increasingly, companies are choosing to move at least part of their security infrastructure to cloud-based solutions. Even if you still run critical IAM service on-prem, there’s a great chance you manage and integrate with cloud applications

The 12 Essential Tasks of Active Directory Domain Services

Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) administration and management includes 12 major tasks. These tasks cover a wide breadth of business needs and are not all performed solely by AD DS administrators. In fact, administrators can and should delegate several tasks to other members of their technical community, technicians, help desk personnel, even users such as team managers and administrative assistants. While delegation is a way to reduce the amount of work administrators have to do when managing AD DS infrastructures, it really only addresses one or two of the 12 tasks, for example, user and group administration as well as end point device administration. The other ten tasks can be staggering in nature — security, networked service administration, OU-Specific Management, Group Policy Object management and many more — and because of this can take up inordinate amounts of time,

Protecting the data of refugees and those who help them

To protect refugees, employees and supply transports—plus minimise costs—the Danish Refugee Council (DRC) wanted to standardise the management of Active Directory. After evaluating solution options, DRC deployed One Identity Active Roles. As a result, DRC established user templates and automated workflows for governing access for 7,000 global employees. Today, DRC can provision new users in an hour. IT staff have greater control over who can access which applications and data. And the organisation has increased staff efficiency, boosted savings and simplified regulatory compliance.

The top five ways to relieve the pain of managing hybrid AD environments

Active Directory is everywhere and Azure Active Directory (AAD), its cloud-based cousin, is quickly gaining ground. Currently, nearly ninety percent of organizations worldwide are using Active Directory (AD) for on-premises resources (aka on-prem). That represents 500 million organizations and somewhere around 10 billion daily authentications. In fact, in the world of identity and access management (IAM), AD has become unavoidable and absolutely necessary for on-prem user authentication and authorization. You have to go through AD. It’s just how it’s done. Now, mix in the cloud – and Azure AD– and your management complexity just skyrocketed – and you could be in for a world of pain, if your on-prem or cloud identity environments are not managed and synced properly.
