IDC Spotlight – Fortify Active Directory to Improve Security and Efficiency
Active Directory and Azure Active Directory are at the core of many successful identity management programs. However, due to the risk of breaches, organizations should look to enhance native Active Directory capabilities with toolkits that improve efficiency and security.
Identity security is top of mind for identity and access management (IAM) leaders, particularly as they seek solutions to protect their attack surfaces. With 95% of Fortune 1000 Companies relying on Microsoft Active Directory and Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) for managing and storing identity and account data, the need to bolster security is critical.
On its own, Active Directory (including Azure AD) is a powerful management tool, but its native capabilities can be extended and augmented to customize the user experience across security, identity, and it professional roles.
This paper examines how to fill gaps in Active Directory management and security to guide organizations that need to limit vulnerability and bolster IT security in Active Directory environments.
