Active Directory is deeply rooted in every network. The old network operating system that won’t die! It’s like a Frankenstein, connected to almost any application, service, IAM, and device. The beast is constantly evolving, which makes it more hideous every day. Owners keep him buried, so he’s rarely given the attention he needs to withstand onslaught from attackers, both inside and out. The spirit of AD is simplistic, allowing anyone who asks to see the roadmap and all the details inside. Everyone knows he needs attention, but the wrong setting could stop his heartbeat, causing the network to be completely destroyed. Let Derek Melber, 17X Microsoft MVP show you how to operate on the beast, making it able to withstand constant attacks.
Active Directory is like Frankenstein, connected everywhere, but with little brains to protect itself. The constant changes to AD make it more hideous every day. Secure the horror that is your AD today!
