NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.--()--Paramount Defenses, one of the world’s top cyber security companies, announced that it has postponed the declassification of The Paramount Brief to February 01, 2016 upon the request of a globally prominent government security agency.

The Paramount Brief documents possibly the world’s most critical cyber security risk today, one that likely poses a serious, clear and present cyber security threat to possibly thousands of business and government organizations worldwide that operate on Microsoft Active Directory.

Microsoft Active Directory is the foundation of cyber security at over 85% of all organizations worldwide, including the global Fortune 1000 and most national, state and local governments.

The cyber security risk documented in The Paramount Brief concerns the presence of an excessively large and possibly unknown number of delegated and unrestricted privileged access users in the foundational Active Directory deployments of most organizations worldwide.

Upon the request of a globally prominent three-letter acronym government security agency, to help provide sufficient time to increase their situational awareness, the company has postponed the declassification of the brief to February 01, 2016.

The declassified version of The Paramount Brief will be available online on February 01, 2016 at –
