Stop Unwanted Changes

Active Directory (AD) is the primary identity access management solution for most organizations. It is often used for federated access, single sign-on, and or synced with cloud systems so its reach goes well beyond local on-prem systems. This makes it a highly valuable target for bad actors. AD issues can result in costly service disruptions and business-crippling downtime. Data breaches and regulatory non-compliance can cause organizations to incur significant expenses.
