Microsoft Platform Management

Hybrid Active Directory security

 

Take control of your hybrid Active Directory infrastructure and improve your security posture on premises and when extended to the cloud. Our solutions enable you to be more productive, secure and aligned to your business with a single, end-to-end solution.

 

Continuous assessment

 

Understand who has access to what: permissions, privileged groups, sensitive business groups, GPOs and data. Conduct a thorough assessment and know your security configuration baseline to easily identify your surface attack area, vulnerabilities and risk profile. Get clear visibility and reporting so you can stay in the know when it comes to your AD, Windows® computers and file shares.

Detection and alerting

 

Know when suspicious/anomalous activities occur. With real-time monitoring, you’ll be able to quickly detect and react to potential insider attacks. Proactive security measures enable you to take immediate action and reduce the risk of exposure caused by insider attacks or data breaches

Remediation and mitigation

 

Re-mediate unauthorized actions immediately across AD and your Windows environment. Respond to alerts quickly to minimize damage from unsanctioned changes. Automated security policy enforcement across AD also reduces the risk of human error and mitigate the potential for recurrence. With our end-to-end solution for hybrid directory security and governance, you’ll improve operational efficiency and give IT staff more time to focus on innovation rather than spending all their time securing systems.

Investigation and recovery

 

Reduce incident response time investigations across your Windows environment. Correlate security baseline information with fine-grained auditing to get a 360-degree contextual view of how the security incident occurred as well as the most likely path(s) that led to the breach. You’ll be able to automate your AD business continuity plan (BCP) to minimize your RTO (recovery time objective) in the event of a security incident that causes partial or total damage across your AD infrastructure.

 

 

Migration and consolidation

 

Ensure a ZeroIMPACT migration and consolidation for Microsoft platforms such as Active Directory, Exchange, SharePoint and Office 365. Simplify and automate migration tasks so you can finish the project faster while minimizing the costs, risks and disruptions to users

 

Pre-migration inventory and assessment

 

Reduce the risk, time and cost associated with complex Microsoft platform migration projects. Careful discovery and analysis can ensure your migrations are on time and on budget. Use Quest solutions to easily identify what resources you’ll need, define what items to migrate and determine optimal configuration settings. Plus, enhance your security with the ability to easily recover lost or deleted data during a migration.
