No Agents

No Agents

Cygna Auditor for Active Directory requires no agents, thus keeping the attack surface on your domain controllers to a minimum.

Because Active Directory controls both authentication ("Who am I?") and authorization ("What can I access?") in the enterprise, it is a high-priority target for external attackers. Once AD domain dominance is gained, it is impossible to be sure your environment is “clean”. Tracking and alerting on AD changes (for example Domain Administrator membership or Group Policy settings) is an indispensable piece of a well-designed security strategy.

Out of the Box Compliance Reporting

Cygna Auditor for Active Directory supports your compliance auditing requirements by providing reports to satisfy many standards such as PCI, GDPR, GLBA, ISO 27001, FISMA, and SOX.

"What If?" Modeling

Cygna Auditor for Active Directory allows you to evaluate the impact of a potential change to Active Directory before you make the change. This reduces risk in changes to the environment, and enables administrators to make changes quickly when required without lengthy evaluation periods.
