The latest version of Directory Services Protector (DSP) provides a complete picture of risk exposure in hybrid environments and monitors cyber threats in Active Directory and Azure Active Directory in a single view.
HOBOKEN, NJ – (BUSINESS WIRE) –#UN D– Semperis, the pioneer of identity-driven cyber resilience for enterprises, today announced the preview version of Directory Services Protector 3.6, which simplifies the management of identity security in hybrid environments that use Both on-premises Active Directory and Azure Active Directory. DSP’s new capabilities to detect and remediate security risks in hybrid identity environments address the challenge organizations face in addressing the increase in attacks that enter organizations through on-premises AD and then move to the cloud – or vice versa – as in the SolarWinds attack.
“We see many different challenges in protecting hybrid identity environments, starting with the fundamental fact that technically Active Directory and Azure Active Directory – other than name – have very little in it. common, ”said Mickey Bresman, CEO of Semperis. “Azure AD provides a different protocol stack, requiring a very different management approach, including protecting the identity system from cyber attacks. With a hybrid scenario, the potential attack surface increases for an opponent. It’s a relatively common scenario to see attacks start on-premises and move to the cloud, or move from cloud to on-premises.
In hybrid AD environments, the DSP displays a single view of security metrics in AD and Azure AD, allowing IT teams to correlate changes between on-premises and cloud environments and could signal an attack in progress. In a recent report from 451 Research, analyst Garrett Bekker highlighted the challenges of securing hybrid identity systems.
“The vital nature of directories has been further amplified by the continuous migration of resources to the cloud, as each ‘cloud’, whether an IaaS platform or a SaaS application, typically has its own. Identity repository with which applications must work, ”said Bekker. “Keeping directories in a secure state has therefore become a huge challenge, in part because most directories are constantly changing as new users are added or change jobs and new applications are installed.
